Consulate Review: Islamabad, Pakistan
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 9, 2011
Embassy Review : I accompanied my fiancee to her interview along with my mom. My mom was told to wait outside the embassy but we were allowed to take her passport in as evidence that she showed up. We waited for about 4 hours until the CO in window 8 finally called us.

The CO was a very nice guy. When me and my fiancee both gave him our passports He looked at me and asked if I was the petitioner I respectfully said yes and he said that he had no problem in me standing next to my fiancee but has made it clear to me to not answer any of her questions till he asks me to verify the it in case he has any doubts. We then mentioned that my mom came here for moral support but was told to wait outside. He became very surprise and mentioned how nice my mom was to come all the way over here. He then asked my fiancee the following questions..

How did you meet your fiance?
When did your fiance proposed to you?
Why did your fiance add your sister on Facebook?
I have one concern explain to me this picture.... In Pakistan this is not really well looked at how does your parents feel about this? (its a pic of Anum sitting on my lap lol)
Have you even been married?
Do you have any children?
Explain to me in details on why you love Eric?
When do you plan on getting married?

After that he immediately approved my fiancee and said that her passport would be mailed to her within 7-10 business days. Interview only lasted for 10 minutes and the CO did not ask for any evidence nor the financial docs. Overall it was a great experience!

Rating : Very Good

He then said that before you get married I will have to take a picture of you (smile on his face). After that he told her to go to a room where other officers will look at her paper work. She waited for 5 minutes then officer said welcome to the United States.

*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
