Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 6, 2011
Embassy Review : My fiance' arrived around 8:30 am for his 9 am appointment. As he stood in line out the embassy, one of the CO's came around to check paperwork and pointed out that some info was missing from one of the forms. He called me in a panic and was so upset I had to tell his cousin what to put on the form LOL. Fast forward to 4 1/2 hours later, he calls to tell me he was approved and will have to come back to Kingston in a week or two to pick up his visa, he lives to far in the bush for DHL I guess LOL.

He was first called up to the window to do his sworn statement and then they told him to sit back down. Then he was called back up and they asked if we went on vacation when I come to Jamaica, what was the name of the hotels that we stayed at. Did I eat fruit, did I drink fruit juice? Did he have any relatives in the US. How often did we talk and how often did I send him money. They never looked at any of the pictures or cards I sent to him. He said they asked him a whole heap of questions more than once, they kept changing how they asked but he was so prepared.

Then they told him he was approved and when to come back to pick up his visa.
Rating : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
