Consulate Review: Kuwait
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 22, 2014
Embassy Review : My fiancee's interview was on Jan 22nd. I wasn't able to attend, she went alone. She arrived about an hour early and said there were about 20 other people in the waiting room, but most of them were Americans or there on other business. A lady asked her a few simple questions and instructed her on how to pay the fee. After that she waited 20 more minutes before the real interview began with a different officer and last almost half an hour. Some of the questions asked were:

-Why isn't your fiance here today?
-Why get married in the US instead of here in Kuwait?
-Why do you want to move to the US?
-How did he propose?
-Have you met any of his family?
-Has he met any of your family?

She was nervous and felt that he had a condescending attitude about some of her answers. She was eventually put into AP because her NBI was missing (it arrived late). We should be good to go as soon as she brings it in.

Pros - Short lines, low wait time
Cons - Attitude of the staff
Rating : Moderate

*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
