Consulate Review: Frankfurt, Germany
Review Topic: K3 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 11, 2006
Embassy Review : Frankfurt is a very pleasant consulate.
Of course, the wait was long but I just tried out the snack and coffee machines. Everyone is so nice and helpful. The consular himself was so kind and friendly, I wanted to hug him but there was a glass window...

No hassle at all!!!
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
