Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 12, 2012
Embassy Review : I compiled a pretty good folder for my fiancť to bring to the embassy. I strongly believe this helped move things along for him. Everything was neatly organized. While I hadnít been down there since August 2011...I was very concerned on not having enough evidence of an ongoing relationship. I provided MANY pages of phone records, western union receipts, bank statements etc. I also sent him little letters and a card or two to bring as well. And I sent him photos of our apartment, my kids, home etc. The CO took a look at everything. Commented about how many phone calls we share and even looked at the pictures. They were even discussing my cat and dog. Hey...whatever it takes! Questions she asked:

When did you meet?
How did you meet?
Does she have children?
Have you met them?
Where do I work?
What do I do?
And my favorite question...what do you love about her? His response...."everything...I could go on and on...but she is like the finest jewel...priceless"
Okay you can all stop rolling your eyes.
Then she asked if he's ever been arrested. While his police report came back clean, he did admit to being arrested in March 2012 for something minor. She asked for details and since the police report came back clean...they gave us a blue slip. He needed to head back to the court house for more details and confirm. Our blue slip interview date was 9 days later and was approved. They only asked for the court paper and said we will call you when the visa is ready. (Anywhere between 7-14 days). And the rest is history! Be organized. Be ready. And never lie! I hope this was helpful.
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
