Consulate Review: Chile
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 18, 2013
Embassy Review : My fiance had his interview with the embassy on 9/16/2013. He had a very good experience there, and felt the interview and paperwork process was less stressful than anticipated.

Please note: If you have traveled/worked in the U.S. in the past, they ask for your passport showing these entries, and your visa papers given upon entry and return to Chile. Luckily, he was super prepared and had these items with him, otherwise he would have had to return home and send them in.
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
