Consulate Review: Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 1, 2011
Embassy Review : All in all, smooth process. Checking of the forms took 5 min and interview took probably another 5-10 minutes. Then she gave fingerprints and an oath. i was sitting probably 5 minutes away from her while she was being interviewed. Consul was very nice and friendly. Didnt even ask for any evidence nor pictures. He had my original K1 packet in front of him and he just went through the pictures quickly and never asked anything on them...
The questions she was asked were:
- Where and what does you fiance work?
- How long do you know each other?
- Where did you meet and when did you get engaged?
- How many times have you seen each other?
- Have you ever been to US?
- Was he ever married before?

Then he said congratulation and come back in 3 days to pick up the visa. He also said to my fiance: now you can smile too

- Oh yes, one more thing, lady that was checking her forms asked for my phone # and she said that she didnt know. She asked if they need it, he is right here and she was like no, i was just checking if you know it lol....so learn phone numbers

Very good experience even though embassy was attacked 3 days ago. Good luck everyone.
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
