Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 21, 2013
Embassy Review : I arrived at 0630am for my 0700am interview.I went inside and was number 404. I was nervous due to what I've read and what people said about the process.I prayed for divine favor and confidence and GOD did it for me. The interview was too easy for me.

Questions Asked

1.How long have you known your fiancee?
2.How much does she earn?
3.When was the first time she came?
4.How do you know her?
5.Who does she stay with?
6.When did you engaged?

Then he asked me if i had any pictures, i showed him the album we had and other pictures.I was confident and calm, i made sure i looked him straight in the eyes when i answered any question.During this part of the interview some people at my back were saying discouraging things.I just want you to know that the devil will even use your own country men to attack you.These people behind me kept saying things like "O leave him...they will soon chase him out now" ,i was showing the CO my pictures and explaining who was in each picture.Ignored all of them and stayed confident and focused thanks to GOD. At the end he said "pick up your passport at so so place.On my way out i felt good.

Conclusion/Tips:It is GOD that can do this for you.
Don't focus on what others are saying.
It's not hard ,be focused,organized and prepare with visa journey.
Be confident and just talk/chat with your CO they are human beings.

I Thank GOD and thanks to my beautiful fiancee. GOD bless ya'll .

*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
