Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 17, 2012
Embassy Review : Basically, it was a very good experience despite the long wait. Everyone that interviewed me was nice and I didn't have a difficult time answering the questions because they were very basic. Below are a few that I can remember --

Biometrics:
> What is your full name?

Then took a seat after my fingerprint scanning.

Filipino pre-screener:
> What is the petitioner's name?
> How did you meet?
> When did you meet?
> When did you last see each other in person?
> How long did you work in the US?

The Filipino pre-screener looked at our pictures and that was that. I waited for my number to flash on the board for the next interview.

American Consul:
> What is the petitioner's name?
> How did you meet?
> When did you come back from the US?
> What does your fiance do?
> Are you aware if your fiance has had any convictions?
> What was he convicted of?

Like I said, all the questions I was asked were pretty basic so I had no trouble articulating my response. The American consul then said I've been approved and that my name/number will be called for the visa instructions.

Now all I have to do is wait for my visa to arrive
Rating : Very Good


POE Review: San Francisco
Event Description
Entry Date : 2012-10-29
Embassy Review : The point of entry was a breeze. The immigration officer was very nice, made small talk and basically just reminded me that my fiance and I had to get married within 90 days and that was that. It didn't take longer than 10 minutes or even
Harassment Level : Low

*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
