Consulate Review: Sweden
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 10, 2012
Embassy Review : My interview appointment at the embassy was at 9 am. Me and my son stayed a 20 minute walk from the embassy and came there around 8.20 am. We got in the line where it says for immigrant visa. It was two people in front of me and then came two more behind me as we were standing there. In the other line it was about 15 people waiting.
The guard called one and one from each line. Then before we walked in to the security he asked for our passport and to show the bottom of our shoes.
Then we walked through security (just like at the airport) and I left my cell phone there and got a ticket to retrive it after the interview.
We were then told to follow the yellow line and walk in to another building and window G (I think.)I think all of this took about 10 minutes.
At window G a man was in front of me handing over papers to a man. It took quite some time, or at least that's what it felt like...
Then it was my turn. She asked me for our passports and found our file. She then asked about the receipt showing I had paid for the visa, she also wanted our birth certificates and my police record. She then asked for the affidavit of support and supporting documents. I had a letter from employer, w2 and tax return for 2011 and about 6 weeks of pay stubs. She did not want the tax transcripts from 2010 and 2009.
I then had to step to the side to fill out a form for my son that I didn't do before and to write N/A on all blanks on my forms. I had to wait for another person to give her forms before she returned to me. She then made copies and I signed them there. I got an envelope to put all my stamps on and write name and adress. Because of the waiting for two others this whole thing took about 30 minutes and by that time it was right after nine.
We then sat down to wait. It was quite a lot of people in the really small waiting area. The windows are really close to everybody and sometimes you could hear what was being said... That's the only thing, it did not feel very private.
About 40 minutes later my name was called. I got to the window and an american woman took my fingerprints and asked me to swear to tell the truth. She asked my son to sit down.
She then asked me a few questions before she all of a sudden told me I was approved! No ongoing relationship evidence requested and the whole "interview" was over in five minutes I think! About 10.10 we were already back at the hotel!
Overall a very good experience at the embassy in Stockholm!
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
