Port of Entry Review
Event Date
Port of Entry : Washington DC
POE Date : 2013-03-12
Got EAD Stamp : No
Biometrics Taken : Yes
Harassment Level : 0
Comments : It took me maybe 10 minutes to go through customs. Some very basic questions were asked. The only strange thing that happened is that the officer asked me where I met Jeffrey (this is my husband's middle name)instead of Brian... I always wonder if it is supposed to be a tricky question... Anyway, very quick, no harrasment, nice people :)

Consulate Review: France
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 24, 2013
Embassy Review : I guess everyone here speaks french. Sry if you don't... I wrote this review in a private message to someone and I didn't feel like writing it all over again in english...

Mon entretien a été "a piece of cake" comme on dit ici.

Je suis arrivée un peu en avance, du coup j'étais une des première dans la salle. j'ai pris un numéro et j'ai attendu qu'on m'appelle. Mon numéro s'est affiché un peu plus tard, je suis allée au guichet, la nana a pris mon nom et ma convocation et je suis allée me rasseoir. Mon numéro s'est ensuite affiché à un deuxième guichet. J'y suis allée. Là on m'a rendu toutes mes conversation e-mail, etc, et mes photos. On m'a demandé le premier formulaire, elle l'a regardé, a fait des trucs sur son ordi, a surligner les endroits où je devais signer, me l'a rendu, elle m'a demandé le deuxième, même chose, elle m'a demandé d'autre pièces je crois (je sais plus quoi), le I-134, et les pièces justificatives. Elle m'a fait signé les papiers, elle m'a demandé si elle avait oublier de me demander un papier que j'aimerai lui donner (autre que d'autre preuves de relation... elle ne voulait clairement pas plus d'emails...) J'ai dit non, elle m'a dit qu'une fois au US j'aurai 90 jours pour me marier, et de ne pas quitter le territoire sans l'advance parole, elle m'a dit d'aller m'asseoir et que le consul allait m'appeler.

L'entretien lui même a duré 5 minutes, le consul (une petite nana toute mignone d'à peu près mon âge) m'a félicitée (pour les fiancailles) puis elle m'a posé quelques questions (où on s'était rencontré, quand est-ce qu'on avait commencé à sortir ensemble, si on était amis avant de sortir ensemble, quand est-ce qu'on s'était vus, où on allait se marier, et si on allait aussi habiter là où on allait se marier)

et voilà! En une heure c'était bouclé. Pour ce qu'il faut amener pour l'entretien: http://www.visajourn...rance&cty=Paris

*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
