Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 13, 2012
Embassy Review : Grabe, masaya na para kang nasa death row dahil sobrang tagal. Lahat kasi ng nakacancel na interviews noong 7,8, at 9 ang inuna kaya 3pm na ako natapos. 6pm na ko nakauwi sa bahay kaya tumawag lang ako kay fiance tapos tulog na agad.

‎7:30 ang interview ko dumating ako doon ng 6am tapos pinapasok kami ng 6:30. Bawal any electronic gadgets at liquid sa loob pero may tinda namang food and water kaya ok lang. Sa labas kinuha yung appointment letter, ds forms, at passport. Nilagyan ng barcode yung passport tapos binigyan ako ng plastic and pinadala sa loob. Tapos pila ulit, binigyan ako ng number (6109), pinadrop yung ds forms at appointment sa window 39. Tapos wait lang na magflash yung number sa queing board. 7:48 tinawag ako for finger printing. 9:37 intial interview with the Filipino pre-screener. \

Questions sa akin:
1. How did I meet my fiance?
2. Kailan kami nagmeet in person?
3. Gaano sa katagal dito?
4. Ilan sila sa bahay?
5. Ilan silang magkakapatid?
6. Nakapagtravel na ba ako abroad

Kinuha yung affidavit of support at yung mga supporting docs ko (ITR at w2 ng 2009, 2010, 2011, pay stub at employment certificate, bank statement, at stocks and bonds), NBI (chineck kung may alias), Cenomar, at Birth certificate. Tiningnan yung pictures namin. Tapos nung hinanapan ako ng iba pang evidence ng relationship namin, pinakita ko muna yung laman ng envelope ko. Nung nakita nya kung gaano kakapal hindi na pinalabas. Hahahahaha!

2:51pm final interview. Window 60 ako. Batang female american yung nag-interview sa akin. Cheerful sya at mabait kaya binati ko sya at smile lang ako. Natatawa sakin yung kasabay ko sa window 59 kasi umaapaw daw ako sa self-confidence nung sumagot.
1. Who is my petitioner?
2. How did we meet?
3. When did we meet in person?
4. What does he do for a living?
5. Were he married before?
6. Does he have nay kids?
7. Was I married before?
8. Do I have kids?
9. When do you plan to get married?

Basta sagot lang ako ng sagot at hindi nag-iisip. May katabi kasi kaming nadeny, hindi daw convinced yung consul sa kanya (window 62). Kaya I did not give the consul any reason to doubt. Then Sabi ni CO Congratulations, your visa is approved. Just wait for your number to be called. Almost 1 minute lang ang interview ko. Tapos tinawag ako sa window 72. pick up nga ang pinili ko. tapos umuwi na kami ng nanay ko

*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
