Consulate Review: Bogota, Colombia
Review Topic: K3 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 17, 2007
Embassy Review : I am so sorry it took all this time to post our Consulate review.
My wife and her child arrived in Bogota on a Monday , had the doctor's appoinment on Wednesday and the most anticipated day, the interview on a Friday.
They arrived at 6AM and were let in at 7AM.
At the line, there are reps from the embassy dividing the lines from tourist visas petitioners and second line for others.She had a sticker that will defirentiate as a K3 visa petitioner. She was called to a window where a lady with not the best attitude ask her for her documents and gave her a negative response about the petition in a way to scare her away.
When she was called for the second time to see another consul she was asked for proof of relationship such as pictures and letters. She did not stay for too long at the interview and was aproved immediately.
The bad thing about this experience was that she had to stay in Bogota until Monday to pick up their passports.
Rating : 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.
