.....Now I have to send my greencard back because they made a mistake in my name. They made the same mistake in 2006 after which I called several times and finally got it done the correct way. All mailings since 2007 were in my correct name and for the card they have used the wrong name again.....go figure.....sigh

Consulate Review: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 14, 2006
Embassy Review : I arrived at the Consulate at 12.30, totally nervous of course. There were already 3 people waiting in front of the gate and while the time passed more people joined. Around 1.15 pm a guard came to the gate and asked who was there with an appointment letter for an immigrant visa. I was number 4 and he let 5 of us inside the gates. I went through the security check and was told to wait with the others in front of a door. There I had to go through another security check and was told to go to booth 5, but that was where everyone was told to go to. When it was my time to go to the booth I was met by a very friendly Dutch guy. He asked me for my name and my passport. He asked for my bank statement which showed you paid the fee and the pics + birth certificate. He also asked for the I-134 + supporting documents. He gave me my xray back and told me to wait untill my name would be called. About 30 minutes later a lady called my name up to a booth, asked me to raise my right hand, asked me to sign a form, asked me how we met, what my fiance's job description was and what I was planning to do in the States. She then took my biometrics, started signing a bunch of papers, closed a folder with my pasport inside and said well, that's it, congratulations you've got your visa! I was out of the building before 2.30 pm.

*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
