Consulate Review: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 16, 2013
Embassy Review : Finally the big day had come! I had read all of the reviews so I had an idea of what I could expect, but I was still pretty nervous.

I left my phone in a locker at Amsterdam central station and took a tram to Museumplein. Once there the consulate was very easy to spot with it's American flag waving in the wind. I arrived too early so hung around in the freezing cold for a while until it was almost 13.30. When they let us in, the guards were very friendly and polite, and that helped me feel less nervous. They told me to go to window 5.

At the window a very nice lady took my appointment confirmation letter, my passport, two passport photos, the postage, proof of payment and finally the Affidavit of Support from my fiancÚ and his mom, our co-sponsor. She asked me a few simple questions, and after that she asked me to wait until I was called to window 6 by the consular officer. The wait took about 45 minutes and I got increasingly nervous during this time. After a young woman, who was there for her CR-1, it was my turn.

The officer asked me to swear that I would speak the truth, and then to state my name, date of birth and the same for my fiancÚ. He went through my files and asked me how and when we met, when we started dating, and how our proposal went. And that was basically it!
I heard him say: ....receive your passport with the stamp in the mail in a few days. Congratulations, you are approved. I left with a big grin on my face and a few tears of happiness!
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
