Consulate Review: Guangzhou, China
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 31, 2013
Embassy Review : My fiancée was one of the first ones called for an interview and was out of the building by 0845. What a pleasant surprise as I had planned for a long arduous wait.

She got a woman CO who was very pleasant and asked the following questions:

Do you or your fiancé have any children?
Have you ever been to America?
What is your fiancé's name?
How did you meet your fiancé?
When did you meet your fiancé?
How many times did your HUSBAND visit you in China? (My fiancée corrected her to "fiancée not husband)
Are you a member of the CCP?
What does your fiancé do?

We had made flash cards with every question we could possibly think of and practiced well into the night last night. I had made several with questions about me using the word "husband" and she quickly learned to be on alert for the tricky question. I doubted they would ask that but they did so it paid off.

They CO looked over my I-134 again and made some favorable comments about my income and then said,"You are approved!"

She gave her a white paper approval notice.

I'm still in shock how lucky we were being able to line up at 0700 and be out by 0845!

For us Guangzhou was a breeze plus the weather has been very comfortable.

*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
