Consulate Review: Islamabad, Pakistan
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 3, 2013
Embassy Review : Once we were in the embassy, there were alot of people around me. Firstly i was directed to a counter after my name was called out where I paid the designated fee and showed them any documents they asked for and was directed back to sit and wait till my name was called out. Within a few hours my name was called out and I was directed to the window where an Immigration Officer took my interview. It started with an Oath of telling the truth and nothing but the truth.
He was a sweet person and we began our conversation in English and I told him I was much comfortable in English accent because I was always conversing in English with everyone around.
He asked me if I knew Urdu, and I told him yes I did.
Questions relative to my Fiance's full name, DOB, How long did she have spent in US, what does she do, how did you guys meet and why I wanted the wedding to happen there and not in Pakistan were asked.
I answered them and he proceeded with typing on information on his computer. He asked why I had lived in Saudi Arabia and I told him that my Dad had worked for an American oil company ARAMCO so I had spent my time there and because of my schooling my Accent was better than other Paki- English mixed accent. he asked my career information and then after all that, handed me a green paper saying my case was in AP and once the administrative paperwork was done, I would be contacted by the embassy.
Then I had to wait until I received good news in October 2012 and now I am in USA and am married with a happily ever after ending...
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: JFK
Event Description
Entry Date : 2012-10-17
Embassy Review : I boarded of Etihad Airways and arrived at the immigration counter after a couple of hours due to alot of people standing in line. The officer was sweet and smiled at me while i had my finger impression taken. After guiding me about the duration in which I was allowed in the US he stamped my passport, he then took me alongside him towards a counter where the immigration officers took charge of my paper work while i was seated to wait till my name is called. After an hour or so, they called out my name and handed me my documents, I picked my luggage up and exited the airport.

*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
