Comments : POE was very easy...took about 15mins. They took fingerprints and had us to go into a room where we waited a few mins. They didn't ask any questions, the CO said we have 90 days before expiry and asked if we had any questions. We said no and then I said yeah one, where does that donot open packet go from here? Stunned he looked up and asked me if I worked for the US government? I laughed and said maybe, why? He said in all the 20+ years no one had asked him that question. He said usually they are so happy to be out of there they have no questions at all. We laughed said thanks!

Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 24, 2012
Embassy Review : We arrived at the embassy a bit early, but when we did there was no line and we were checked in right away. We went in, went through security, and out into the courtyard. There were people sitting to the left (we thought we needed to join the crowd...lol, but a lady told us no). Went into the embassy door where we were the only ones and he was checked in by another lady, gave a yellow paper and told to go through the door next to us. She told me to please take a seat in the courtyard.

I set in the courtyard for about an hour and watched people until a man came by and asked why we were sitting in the heat. He went to talk to security and to the lady who told us (USC) to sit there and about two mins later we were being apologized to and escorted inside so we could sit in the USC waiting room.  This was a great change but also painful because you could hear a lot going on on the other side of the wall. 

AM said he sat and listened to others being interviewed. He was called up to have his papers checked and given his number A150. Then he sat and waited. He said there were people getting blue slipped for not having all info, needing a co-sponsor, etc., and said he saw people with pink and yellow also. 

He was called at about 11:35am, I know this because they didn't call his number, but called his name to window 24 at which point I became so nervous, because at the same time someone was being questioned very loudly at window 9...and it wasn't sounding good. 

He said he got a guy who was really cool. He was glad he didn't get the other guy because he was going through everything and asking detailed questions, making everyone nervous.  The guy he got asked him; how we met? how many times I had been to Ja? (he: 10)when was the last time? (he: she's out there now). He said he was surprised he didn't ask him more questions.  A said the the CO looked at our phone records and said. Wow you all talk a lot and laughed. A said yes, everyday and twice on the weekend. ( one of the phone bills had 90 calls for one month, thanks to Digicel international plan). He asked him why there were times he only talked for one or two mins...his answer: sometimes just to hear her voice :-). No other evidence looked at. Interview took 5 mins. 

He came out, didn't see me and was headed towards DHL when I noticed him. I went out and he said why the long face and smiled. Then I knew. We were both so excited. 

He paid DHL, with me asking him 30 million questions and we made the trip back to Ochi all smiles!!!

*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
