Comments : Amed's experience with the Consulate in Algeria was good. They didn't ask him one question! We did have a lot of paperwork, photos, cards, receipts, etc. They told him to pick up his visa in 1 week at the consulate in Algiers. It ended up being 2 weeks, but they did respond to my e-mail queries within a day or so after my sending them. All in all, a good experience!

Consulate Review: Algiers, Algeria
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 3, 2006
Embassy Review : Amed called the consulate to find out if they had received his file from the NVC. They were very nice over the phone, told him they had the file, and he would get a letter in a couple of days. Sure enough, 2 days later he had his letter. He then called back when all of the paperwork was in hand (about a week later) and they scheduled him an appointment for 5 days later! He went to the embassy for his 8:00 a.m. appointment. He had to wait a while, and then they called him up and took his paperwork. They called him back up to correct a typo on his DS-156. Then they made him sign the form in front of them, write his name in arabic, and raise his hand and attest to the accuracy of the documents. The CO reviewed all of the materials he handed her, including photos, phone card printouts, a letter from my mom, the engagement ring receipt, a scrapbook I made him, etc. She then took his fingerprints, made him pay the visa fee, and took his passport. She gave him the address of the place he'd need to go to pick up the passport in about a week. He said "so the visa is ok?" and she said "it's ok." So, if everything goes well, the visa will be ready in a week for pick up in Algiers. All in all, he said everyone was very nice. He was not even asked any questions about our relationship.
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
