Consulate Review: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 6, 2013
Embassy Review :

So my Brazilian fiance showed up to Dr. Duarte's office a bit late Monday morning because he said it was a bit tricky to find. He rushed to get the rest of the blood work done etc to get back in time to pick up the signed medical exam. On his way back to the office the secretary called to let him know that she had forgotten to have Dr. Duarte sign the form so he would need to go to another city to track him down to get the signature. After hours of traffic he got the signature and was ready for the interview the next day.

He got to the consulate around 6 am and must have had his interview about 10 am. He said the woman doing the interview was very very kind. She asked:
-Where did the two of you meet? (We had met on a mission)
-Have you ever been to the US? (no but she's come here)
-Does she already have her wedding dress? (yes)
-What does it look like? ( he went on to describe my wedding dress drama)

She then said "ok well good luck in the US!" and he said "wait, that's it?" and she said "ya, you're approved!"

I was, however, unsatisfied with the customer service the consulate provides. When they do respond to your emails they give you the minimum amount of information, just enough to get you to stop emailing. This created a very confusing run around in regards to the police records. Tip: You CAN get the policia federal online, unless the site is unluckily glitchy for you! Then you have to physically get it. States: always call the state to ask!

*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
