Comments : NOA was approved very quickly. I called and requested an expedite on our approval. It was a standard for all visas from Haiti be expedited at that time. But I went ahead and called USCIS and requested it anyways. I had to call several times until anyone would actually listen to me and send it through expedited. I got notification about 2 weeks later that we were approved and being sent on to NVC.

Comments : We went through Miami International Airport. Took several hours to get through checkpoints in immigration. But it was comfortable. There were snack machines and TV. What better time then to relax with your loved one you have waited so long for. We missed our flight but the airport gave us a flight out the next day and accomodated us in a hotel close by with food vouchers. It was all in all a great experience.

Consulate Review: Haiti
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 14, 2013
Embassy Review : Hello All!!! We are finally approved Praise God. Our interview was at 7am we arrived at the Embassy close to 6am. We waited in a line outside for about 45 minutes. We were then let inside and went through 2 security check points. After arriving inside the Embassy we sat in a waiting room with several other people. Our name was called and we went to a small window and spoke with a very polite young American lady. She asked if we had any other documents or pictures we wanted to submit. I gave her about 20 more pictures of us, phone records and letters. Then we went back to sit down. We waited for about another 20 minutes and they called his name again. We went to a new window and they took his finger prints. Then we went to sit back down. We waited for about another hour. We talked and prayed and tried not to worry. His name was called again and we went up to a new window. She told me to have a seat while she asked my fiance some questions. So I went to sit down. She was very sweet and polite. After about 10 minutes he fanned for me to come back over to him and he was smiling from ear to ear. She looked at me and said congrates...your approved!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Jesus!!!! Of course I started crying and freaking out FINALLY!!!!

*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
