Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 4, 2014
Embassy Review : A bit more information about the interview.

I don't know all the specifics but I will tell you what I do know.

She got there around 6:50 am for a 7:30 am interview time slot.

They began processing at 8:00 am.

The first booth is for biometrics fingerprints - she said a very nice American made her feel at ease and joked with her.

Each booth took about an hour of waiting.

2nd Booth - Filipino man checked all her paperwork and made sure it was in order. I think he asked some questions but not sure

exactly what.

3rd Booth - not sure if this was the CO American officer that asks the formal questions or if he was the 4th booth.

But the American CO she said looked like Superman with dark hair and she was in love with him LOL...

They asked her:

When we met
How we met
Where we met
My birthday

What did she like about me
And they ask to see pictures of us together

They did look at my 2013 tax return - I'm self employed. and the I-134 form.
The I-134 was a scanned copy I emailed her - I did sign it in blue ink and scanned it in color so it would look a bit more like an original.

Then told her she was done and she could go home and wait for her Visa!

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
