Consulate Review: Ukraine
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 28, 2013
Embassy Review : I had my interview appointment on December 07.
My husband & I did not sleep for some last day at all as you can imagine it seems that all your happiness & being together depends on this day.
So I did not sleep. My Interview was at 08 am but it was so much snowing that very day that even I couldn't get there in time and was a bit 15 minutes late.
I took the album with our photos & our thick file with e-mail correspondence, our Skype calls copies, originals. Was waiting not too long, in half an hour or so I was invited to the window. I was impressed by the politeness & smiles of Interviewer officer. She asked me to give her all originals and application Forms, then also she asked our photos where we are together.

Asked my full name, my Petitioner's name, dates of birth, if I have children, if my adult son goes with me, some two simple questions, looked at our files and said that everything is ok & I can seat & wait for a Interview with Consul.

Then I was invited to the other window & was asked 3 simple questions where we met, how many times we met during this current year, what my future husband does, his birthday and she congratulated. It took like 15-20 minutes. That's it!

I was PLEASANTLY IMPRESSED BY POLITENESS & being delicate and smiles...
I would like only to thank them for their professionalism.

There is NO REASON to be nervous! Just follow their requirements very precisely. If you have any questions as to K1 you are welcome. Will be happy to help.

*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.
