Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 9, 2014
Embassy Review : I left my house at 6:40am and arrived in the area of the embassy about 7:30.
After handing my large bag into goulds pharmacy I relaxed and made my way to Starbucks aiming to go to the embassy at half 8 as my interview was at 9.
In front of the embassy were two lines, the line on the left is the first one you need to go to as that one checks you in and signs your interview on their records, you then have to join the back of the line on the right.
I advise going in those lines a bit earlier than half an hour before your appointment as I didn't even get to the top of the second line until after 9.
You are then checked by a second member of staff and placed in a third short line to go through security.
I went through that fine with my phone, electronic cig, and even perfume.
You then turn right and walk around the building to some stairs which lead up to the reception, now she's the one who gives you your ticket number to be called.
I walked into the waiting area and literally say down for about 5 seconds when I was called for the first time.
I brought a lot of crap with me! And a they asked for wasy birth certificate, police certificate, photos, support form and then I have them his IRS form.
I got back my chest X-ray on disc and went and sat back down.
After what seemed like forever which was only about 20 minutes of less I finally got called to my interview.
The man was lovely he asked me several questions.
When did you first meet and how
When did you meet in person
When was the last time you saw him
When have you/he visited
Did you meet his family
Did he meet yours
What does he do for a living
Have you lived anywhere other than the up before
When's the wedding
When do you plan on travelling

Unless I'm just losing my mind (as this all only happened 30 minutes ago) that was it.

I was very nervous but answered every question promptly.
At the end he congratulated me and told me it was approved and it would take up to two weeks for my visa to arrive at which point I said I didn't care just that I was getting it! He smiled and laughed at that.
I made my way (without trying to run) outside without trying to run so I could wake up my love and tell him the good news (he just said I told you so lol) and called my mum and cried and then carried on telling everyone else!

Overall I was worried about nothing and it was pretty quick and smooth.
Rating : Very Good

*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
