Comments : Very easy and helpful through the process. Went better because I was there and spoke English. Took about 15 minutes. She wanted the copy of her shot records back and he wouldn't give to her. He said that all will be sent to USCIS and we can get a copy from them. I hope that doesn't get lost as we went through a lot to make sure she had all shots before coming to USA.

Consulate Review: Ukraine
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 23, 2012
Embassy Review : Very nice and friendly people helping us and answering questions we had. Very easy and relaxing. Went through security, then got a number and went to window and turned in paper. She turned in paper and I paid. Then we waited about hour and half. Then our turn. He asked about 5 questions. Where I worked, how big of a wedding, if I had animals, and about her sister since she is US Legal. More of a relaxing day even though man in front of us was told he can't get another US visa for 10 years because he did something illegal. We were approved so we are doing the happy dance.
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
