Consulate Review: Bogota, Colombia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 30, 2011
Embassy Review : We arrived at the embassy at 6:45am and there was a lottt of people but lucky for us that was not the k1 line. We were directed to line 3 and asked to see the embassy interview letter which was fast. Then we went through secruity. If you have a cell phone you will have to turn it in until after you leave. Next we were given the domesa form and then went directly to line 40. The lady asked for a couple forms and gave us a folder explaining the order to put all of our forms and documents in. After we organized everything we brought the folder right back to line 40. 10 or 15mins later my fiancees name was called to window 32 and this lady checked to make sure all the documents and forms were there. About 20mins later we were called again to window 2 for fingerprints. Finally after 45mins the consular called us and was a really nice guy who didnt even ask for alllll of the evidence we brought. He asked my fiancee how we met and how many times we visited each other. He also showed us a few photos from the petition and even joked with us about them and that was it APPPPRRROOVVED. The whole process was about 3 hours.

*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
