Consulate Review: Moscow, Russia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 26, 2012
Embassy Review : It was a very easy, 5 minutes interview with a nice lady officer who was very friendly. She kept smiling through interview, was asking questions about our relationship which made me feel as if she really was interested, not merely doing her job. All the questions were super easy. Basically she asked me to describe history of our relationship. When I finished speaking, she typed something on her computer, and asked me: 'so when did you guys get married"? To which I happily informed her that we are PLANNING to get married. And that was it. She told me that my visa was approved and I left embassy 3 hours after I had entered the building.
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
