Consulate Review: Sydney, Australia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 12, 2009
Embassy Review : Had an 8am appointment, arrived at 7.30am went to level 10 waited about 15mins or so till they opened up. Showed Interview letter and passport went thru scanners and waited till about 8.20 and was in the first group to go up in Lift to level 59.
Got my Immigrant visa ticket and was called up about 10 mins after. Woman who did was nice said I was all prepared, noticed the Approval stamp on my paperwork (must have been from USA) asked me for passport and then told me to sit and wait for fingerprints (took about 5mins or so with her).
Fingerprints done about 10mins later, then told to go to middle area of the room to wait for Interview. Waited probably 10-15mins, then had Interview with a guy who asked me where we planned to live and had I lived in USA before. A bit of small talk about Pittsburgh and then he asked me for passport (which was underneath all the paperwork he one of the forms in front of him as well.
Told me I was approved and would receive Visa in about 2 days. went back down to level 10 to get my bag I had left there and was able to do a yeehah in lift on way down to lower floor.
Was efficiently done by all there and as the first woman siad to me are all prepared very good (only thing I needed to take in was the payment receipt,passport and Express Post envelope.
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.
