Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 17, 2012
Embassy Review :
We were the first to arrive at 3:45 am and around 6 :15 we were let in we sat on those hard metal benches til 8 when we was asked to turn in his DS forms. She explained the procedure for him to petition for his daughters and his next step on his Visa Journey. Around 10 he was called to do his fingerprints then we sat back down til 12 where we were called to do our interview at window 22 a young African American female where she first asked how and where we met, did I have any criminal history I answered then she asked to see pictures. Which we gave her and she glanced at a few and past fhem right back she then asked if he was still with his ex when we met and vice versa, she asked why when I applied for my new passport in "09" I stated I was single when I was actually still married I then answered her and after that she told us to have a seat. 2 hours later at 2 pm we were called to window 11 the investigation room where they called mi negro in first and questioned him for about 15 minutes all intimate questions about us then they called me in. The officer showed me 3 pix and asked who the ppl in the pic were and I answered and he said that he had no clue as to why we were even sent to investigations when our case was solid and legit he then told me to have a good day and to wait to be called again. We waited again til about 4:45 pm and were called to window 22 again and all she said was your visa has been APPROVED have a good day..

Any questions just asked..

*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
