Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 19, 2012
Embassy Review : FiancÚ Reports: He went into interview area, he sat for about an hour, then they took fingerprints he had to complete 3 forms, including one for DHL, and swear that we would not get married in Jamaica. He sat back down and waited for about two hours. There were on six people left for K-1, or CR-1 visa, so the manager called people from the back to come process the 6. The white gentleman called him to the window, and said he already went through his paperwork, so he will ask him his questions. The officer mentioned to him that his paperwork was very organized, he had no problem looking for anything. He said they both smiled at each other, fiancÚ still introduced himself to officer. He scanned his prints again and swore him in. The officer asked him, how we met, how did we build a relationship, how do we talk to each other, how many times have I visited, he told him I was here outside, he said officer smiled, asked where do we stay, he answered and told him my last two visits I stayed at him house, office asked him do you stay alone or with your family, he answered I live in an apartment alone. He asked did I send money western union, he answered no, I work. He asked has he ever been arrested, he asked did he smoke, officer told him that his medical was fine. He then asked him KNG or MBAY, then my fiancÚ said what, he said where do you want DHL to send your passport, then my fiancÚ said Ooh I guess MoBay. The officer laughed. He gave him his passport, officer gave him DHL slip, and he came out the door. We went over to DHL window and payed for delivery to MoBay. I could see a big delivery bag of visa sitting next to the door.
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
