Consulate Review: Morocco
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 30, 2013
Embassy Review : I had my interview on October 25t at 9:30 am.
I went through security at the outside of the consulate to go to a window where I had to drop off my passport and 2 photos, then got in.
The security inside asked me to take every single thing out of my pocket, even my belt. I had to keep my keys with them (fortunately didn't bring my phone inside with me) and they gave me a little ticket with a number on it.
I got inside the waiting room; it was full of people, apparently I was among the last ones to be in. A lady called me from a window (it was the same lady to who i gave my passport and 2 photos in the outside) she asked for the docs, aka DS-156, DS-165k,DS-157, and DS-230,she also Asked for my birth certificate, celibacy certificate, police record and the court record along with all the translations, she asked for the Affidavit of support and my fiancée's 2012 tax return, and was invited to pay the $240 fees at the cashier. After about 10 minutes, I was called by a Moroccan guy from another window who asked for the payment receipt, and said "Promise to tell the truth?" I said "Yes, sure" he asked "Do you have a marriage certificate? Have you ever traveled abroad? " I answered "No" to both his questions and was invited to sit again. About an hour later, a lady called from window number 3, she must be the nicest CO at the consulate, very respectful and smiley, she took my fingerprints and asked me to raise my hand and swear that all of the information on the application are true and that I’m going to say the truth, the interview began.
-How did you meet your fiancée?
-When did your relationship become serious/romantic?
-How many times did she visit?
-How long did she stay each time?
-What does she do for a living?
-Does she live in an apartment or in a house?
-Does she live with someone or alone?
-Have you ever had trouble with the police?
-Have you ever taken drugs/Hashish?
-Why did you learn English? For fun or at school?
-Why was your fiancée interested in learning French?
After this question, the interview was more like a casual conversation:
- Was she a good English teacher to you?
-Was she a good French student? lol
Then the C.O typed something on her computer (she does it after every answer I gave her) and said :
- "Your visa is approved, come back Tuesday at 3:30pm to pick it up"
She handed me a sheet of paper and said that was useful information in case i had any problem in the US and it had my rights in the States, she also gave me a little pink paper with a number on it.

I went on Tuesday to the consulate in order to pick up my visa, and as I was in line waiting, I got a phone call from a lady from the consulate who said I had to come back the next day at 3:30 to pick up my visa. Well, no problem.
I came back the next day (which is today, Oct 30th) a guy at the window (it was the same one who asked me to say the truth on the interview day, lol) gave me my passport and a sealed envelope that I have to show to the immigration officer at every airport I go through in the US.

Overall, it was a very nice experience in the consulate, except being nervous while i was waiting to be called for the interview, but Hamdoullah all people who had the interview before me that morning were approved!
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
