Consulate Review: Costa Rica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 20, 2011
Embassy Review : Our interview went great. From what I saw from the other couples that were there too, the most important thing above all is to have excatly what they asked for in the form that they asked for it. You need all of the paperwork and it needs to be correct. Check and double check everything. 2 couples were sent away to get the correct paperwork in line. DO NOT trust that you laywer did it right. Everyone at the embassy was great and the interview was less of an interview and more of a conversation. We were not ablt to pick up the visa right away due to a broken printer and have had to wait a week, but what's another week really?
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
