Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 7, 2006
Embassy Review : How painless could it possibly have been? We realized the night before the interview at about 11pm that we had not yet paid the fee at barclay's like you're supposed to and started panicking, since the interview was at nine AM the next morning...when the banks opened...

Getting into London, we discovered that Barclay's now opens at 8:30, and so we were in the consulate by nine. Walked in, took our number (007, Bond...James Bond) and sat for a while. We were called to the window to present information, which I had far more of than they actually needed! We sat down again and waited, and about ten minutes later Russ was called for te interview. The chap at the window was very VERY nice, and we were approved out in about another fifteen minutes!

Getting through the POE at JFK was easy as pie, since it was two AM and there was no one else there. The work authorization was stamped into his passport and all's good now...roll on February 18th!

*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
