Consulate Review: Guayaquil, Ecuador
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 12, 2012
Embassy Review : ok, I must confess this is a really stressing process and you need patient all the time, I arrive at 8h00 am since my interview was at 8h30, it was full, so we were in different places, I just got called by 11, and I gave all my papers and they were checked, I think this is really important DONT SAY I THINK.. OR HMMM, OR GIVE A WRONG INFORMATION bc you were too nervous and couldnt remember, I saw 2 girls doing that and one needed his fiance to come with her and the other was denied, by the way my fiance was not with me, coming back to the first place I was called, they asked me about his family, my family, specific dates when he entered to Ecuador and how many times, how we met, while they were checking my pics, I brought 50 pics of us together, and with my family, having fun in the beach, well in all the places we took pics, they also asked me how often we talk and how do we communicate and if i was working or not, AGAIN JUST TELL THE TRUTH, i told them we talk everyday and text throught the day as well, and the school i was working for didnt need me anymore since I was going to leave soon, then they told me to pick the other papers which weren't necessary and sit down till i would get called again, next step were the fingerprints, wow that was soooo fast and then I came back to wait to talk to the consul, she was so nice! I mean it! the first thing she asked me was if I spoke english and then I answered yes in english so she decided to make my interview in english, and asked me again about honeymoon plans, wedding plans, his family, my family, when we started dating and all that, she also asked if my fiance was there or not, she also asked me where i learned english and I answered her, it didnt take that long and then she said CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE APPROVED! I was so happy that i didnt know if i should cry or smile, so I did both lol! I am sooo happy. Hope this review will be helpful to you all

*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
