Consulate Review: Vancouver, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 1, 2006
Embassy Review : I was very over prepared and the entire process was painless and quick. Took over an hour and everyone was extremely friendly. Just make sure you've got everything they ask for in the Package 3 checklist and you'll be fine. This website was invaluable. I read it religiously and can't thank everyone enough for all of the help they provided us. Good luck to all.
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
