Consulate Review: Sweden
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 25, 2014
Embassy Review : So, i had my appointment at 8.30 am, and i got there at 7.50 . I only saw one cue, and that was for the Non-Immigrant, and to tell you the truth , i have been and still are, confused abt this being a non-immigrant visa or an immigrant visa!
But i felt that, that was the cue i was suppose to stand in line for, non-immigrant!
It said on a sign, that i had to have an envelope with me, which i didn't bring, so i had to walk 15 mins, in snow, it was freezing, with my travelling bag and laptop bag. And 15 mins back, so i was late for my appointment, but they said in the speakers that it was ok still. So i got in line, and sgtarted waiting. I stood there for abt 2 hrs, and i was so frustrated of the very few ppl standing in the other line from time to time, us citizens and immigrant visa green card applicants.
So, it was finally my turn, i had to take off my jacket and show the soles of my shoes, then the officer wanted to see my passport, he was standing looking at the appointment list, and i could see he couldn't find me anywhere!! I was thinking , what the hell is going on, and he wanted me to go the next window where another officer was, and he was asking me if i booked my own appointment and when, i said no, i got it booked for me, and he asked what i was applying for , i said K-1 visa, he said, well then its an immigrant visa,l im sorry to tell you, but you have been standing in the wrong line!!! I was so frustrated. So, eventually i got in, i tell you, i couldn't feel my toes!!! Got in, they told me to go to Window g.
A swedish lady asked me a few question, when we met, when we last met, how, and asked for the documents , but not all of them, she never asked for the newer intent to marry and not the Noa2, but i would suggest you to bring it anyway. Turns out, i didn't have had to bought the stamps for 150 sek!! She said i came in the middle of thir process of renewing their rules/system, neither the envelope, so i didn't even have had to go and buy an envelope and could had saved 150 sek, i wish they had at least informed ppl of this before. So, she asked me to sit down and wait for my interview, my name got called again, and it was an american speaking woman. She asked me the same questions, but more specifically, and if i had met his family, how long we had known eachother, what he is working with and such. It took about 10 mins max, and before that i had to swear that all i have presented is truthful etc. I had to sit down again, and was called back up few mins later. She said, well, it looks like everything is in order, except for the divorce decree, it wasn't certified, so pls ppl, don't forget to have it certified with a seal, signature and stamp, and it has to be original certified.
So she said we were done, and i got my envelope back from the swedish lady before and she appologized that i spent money and time on the stamps and the envelope.
So, i came out to the officers to get my laptop bag and cellphone, immidiately when i came in the room, an officer called my name, they asked me to come back to window g!!! I was so nervous, i was like what the hell is it now, lol, i wanna get out of here!! I was so cold and tired after everything.
Well, they took my envelope with stamps, i guess they felt sorry for me, haha, so they will use it to send the visa to me :D
After that, i was so releaved!! I mean i was dissapointed of a few things, but they still only wanted one document more.
Ppl, don't forget, stand in the line for immigrant visa!!!!
And, be aware that they have changed a few things since 18th of january.

*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.
