Comments : I had a successful interview,the CO was so nice and he made me feel comfortable,our conversation is very calm,all the question is very basic,it's all about me at first,then my fiance,and lastly our relationship,interview last only for about 10 minutes,then he gave me the sweetest and unforgettable words "approved"this process is very frustrating specially when you are in the USCIS stage and waiting time for interview to be scheduled..but all is worth once you're done with the interview,just keep on reading VJ forum then your mind will be stress free..thank you vj,you are my guide from the start to finished..a lot of paper work coming but at least this time me and my love will work together,no more long distance..what we can do is keep praying,do your best and GOD will do the rest,praise him for all His goodness :)

Embassy Review : here's my experience in Abu Dhabi USEM,october 21,me and my friend traveled from Dubai to Abu Dhabi,we stayed for one night in Premiere inn Capital Center

7:00 i arrived in USEM
7:45 the security let us to enter the embassy
security take my pouch with my mobile inside and let Us go to the next building
they gave us token,my number is 004
1st window the lady took all the necessary document and requirements,she gave back the copy of my daughter bc.
2nd window american guy took my finger print
3rd window i paid the visa fee
i sat for about 40 minutes to be called for interview
the CO was so nice,he asked some info about me and my job,how long i've been here in Dubai.Then he asked about my fiance and how the relationship start,when and how we met,the questions are all simple and very basic,if you really know your fiance and the relationship is genuine then you are good to go,and also one of the important thing is you are both clean.no past criminal record.my interview lasted only for 10 minutes.
i left the embassy @ 9:38 interview is done and i got the approval,CO gave me pink slip written the day and time for me to comeback to get my passport with my k1 visa..on Monday i will return in Abu Dhabi USEM to pick up my Visa,GOD is so good all the time,just simply trust his will
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
