Consulate Review: Singapore
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 4, 2015
Embassy Review : Interview went well, my appointment was for 9.15AM. I arrived at the embassy at 8.45AM and was asked to join the IV queue outside the building. There was only 1 other person in the IV queue. Many others behind us in the Non Immigrant queue.

Was called to the security post about 10 minutes later, went through security and got a queue number. Was expecting a wait, but my number was called immediately. An asian man checked my documents and asked me some basic questions.
- How did you two meet? (We met in a church)
- What church was it?
- What does your fiance do?
- Has he shared his salary information with you?

He took I-134, a few of my fiance's recent paystubs, his employer and bank letter and 3 recent photos. He asked if my fiance's current job is his first, and required no further explanation for the lack of W2s submitted.

I had compiled his paystubs and bank statements from the past year and these were all returned to me. I was asked to take a seat and wait for a consular officer to interview me.

After a 45 minute wait, a very nice officer took my fingerprints and asked me a couple of questions.
- So you used to have a F1 visa (student visa from my college days), what school did you attend?
- Where was the school? (Brooklyn)
- How's Brooklyn? Did you like it?
He made some small talk about what Brooklyn was like when he lived in the States and remarked that my fiance and I have known each other for a long time (since 2007) and that was it! No other questions. Did not ask to look at all the skype history, whatsapp history and photos I had brought. He informed me that our case looks good, reminded me to register for an Aramex account and said that I should hear back in a week or so.

Relieved to be done with the interview and hope to hear back soon about the final decision for the visa The officers were efficient and courteous.
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
