Comments : It wasn't bad; the rep we had was clearly having a bad day and he was very sarcastic. But all in all, it was easy my fiance gave him the manila envelope + passport and then my fiance was brought to other room without me. But 10mins later my fiance came out with his passport. And we went home.

Consulate Review: Haiti
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 20, 2014
Embassy Review : Late post, I know...

Our appointment was for 7:00am and we got there around 6:30am. There were two lines that were the same lengths ( one was for visas and the other was for green cards, I think). We waited 15mins and were then let inside. We passed a security guard/ phone check, where you have to leave your phone with if you bring it; and then we went through metal detectors. We sat in the waiting room where a Haiti Messager attendant was directing people on which window to go to ( kinda reminded me of the DMV expect you don't have to take a number).

The 1st window we were sent to, after waiting 15mins, was a man asking us for more eevidence about our relationship; so we gave him more picuters and more call logs. He then told us to have a seat. 20mins later the HM attendant sent my fiance to another window where he had his fingerprints taken. About an hour later, we went up to the 3rd window for the actual interview.

We had a nice lady, she asked us 3 questions: How did we meet? How did he propose? What are the plans for the wedding? She spoke to my fiance in creole and to me in english. After a few mins she looked to him and said "Congratulations, I'm so happy for you two!"

She then told us that we could to the HM attendant by the exit and pay 15$ and have a pick up day for his passport. We did and on 4/16/2014 he got his passport! We were excited beyond words. We flew to JFK on 4/18/2014. It still feels surreal to me.

VJ had everything to do in helping us get this far and I very grateful to this site and to everyone who has been with us along for the ride. Thank you for your support! I pray all your journeys go as smoothly fellow VJers.

*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
