Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 8, 2015
Embassy Review : I got to the embassy at about 6.25am because im overly vigilante. i stood and spoke to two guys one was doing the b1 or b2 visa the other was ir-1/cr-1 or whatever it is. theyre were awesome though. actually made me a lot less stressed about the situation.

at roughly 6.45 a small asian man told us to queue along side the fence there instead of standing at the door of the visa gold roofed thing.


at roughly 6.50 a man with long hair came out and erected a marquee. he had a Fabio Lanzoni vibe about him, or maybe he was born with it.

not long after that two small cabinets were wheeled out. this is a desk that the people checking you appointment letter, passport and DS-160 would sit at. they also give you a plastic bag to put stuff in.

Not long after that some people in uniform wheeled out some chairs and sat down to start allowing people to come in. a girl came out and was telling people what documents to have ready then she walked behind me. to be honest i didn't realise they had split up the queue until i noticed this guy with the haircut of an early version of joey from friends push in front of me from the left. me and the second guy in the queue who hadn't been directed anywhere just kinda said wtf. so i walked forward and said why are they going ahead of us. she said they're immigrant visas so i said oh so are we. so i got the guy who was in front of me in then got in myself. after the write something on the letter they kind of dismiss you.

the security guard on patrol didn't seem to like we didnt know where we were going. despite the fact it wasnt made obvious so decided to warn us not to block the walkway instead of directing us where to go. at this point id like to state go through the fence to your right and wait at the door to the security hut until directed through. once there empty pockets, or belts and watches and wallets into plastic bag. and place anything held in the small trays. then you'll walk through a metal detector. once youve got your stuff back. go out of the door and follow the signs saying visas. this will take you to the right hand outskirts of the building. about halfway round the right side of the building there is stairs and big doors. once you go through this youll see a black desk with two or three people on it they'll ask to see documents, appointment letter i think and theyll print off stickers and put them on your letter. the k-1s and other fiancťe type things are I90(x) x being the position your in queue. now because of the whole misinformed about where to stand bit earlier and altruism i ended up being i903. after going to the door up the stairs to the left you end up in a room thats reminiscent of an airport departure lounge and a post office. the room itself is odd looking as it looks like it was built for a Austin Powers stage but then the colors from the 60s were painted over.

once there sit and wait. there is a large screen at the front of the room thatll turn on at 8am. when it does sont get upset that i901 isnt first. in fact there was n1 through n 15 called before i901 was called.

when the call came. it popped up on screen and told me to go to window 15 after being there for 5 minutes a small asian lady came to the window and told me i was at window 1, the notifications were broken.

so i went to window 1 and i got asked for my appointment letter, ds-160 and passport and the courier fee and MRV fee receipts. id like to note theyre after the one thats emailed to you. then she asked for original police cert birth certificate, and in my case name change deed poll. and also the complete i-134 since for some reason i equated original with first, so im like staring thinking whats my second birth certificate. in my confusion i gave her all the originals and photcopies i had done, she looked at the stack of stuff and said i said originals not copies, you don't listen to instructions well. after shed finished. i was told to sit down again.

i sat for maybe half an hour then i got called to window 15, there i met a lady with perhaps the quietest speaking voice given to a human. and the noise from the toilets drowned her out. i then got asked a total of two questions while she clicked and typed stuff on her computer.

how did we meet, i explained we met playing on a minecraft server
then she asked who is then said my faincees name. i said my fiance. then she looked at my i-134 and furrowed her brow and said is it alexandra or alexander, turns out id wrote the wrong name on the form but she said that was ok.

she then said id been approved. and then i got to leave

apart from the slight disoragnisation it went really well

since a lot of us are really stressed about this process ive provided some help below

*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.
