Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 24, 2014
Embassy Review : Hello!

I had an interview today and it went well. My appointment was 7:30 am and I arrived at the embassy at around 5:30am (with my parents).. They checked my appointment letter, passport and DS 160 before I entered the premises and dropped it at window 39 (they provided a zip lock plastic for your passport). The security was so strict!.. so do not bring any gadgets or else they will not allow you to enter.

I waited for my number (#6137) to be flashed on the screen. By the way, I met two ladies, they are both K1 applicants also.

First window, #42, guy American asked for my name and I did fingerprinting (four fingers first - left and right and then two thumbs) and was told to sit and wait for my number to be flashed.

Second window, #51 with Filipino consul. He asked for the affidavit of support and supporting docs, passport, copy of receipt from BPI, NSO birth Certificate, CENOMAR and NBI Clearance and I was told to wait for my number again.

Third window, #63 with female American. Oath taking and fingerprints again.

Fourth window, #61 with the American consul. She was so nice and she looks like a Chinese lady. She always smiled at me She asked me questions like:

*Who is the petitioner
*How old is he?
*What does he do?
*Is he married before?
*Why his past marriage didn't work out?
*Does he has a child?
*How many times he visited you? When?
*What are your plans once you arrived in US?
*Have you been married before?
*Where did you met him? (online- Filipino cupid)
*How long have you been a member of that site before you met him?

And she checked our pictures. She saw my FiancÚ's son which is married now with the beautiful wife and they already have a daughter. And the consul told me "Aww you are a 30 year old grandma!".... We both laughed!.

Then, she handed me the pamphlet (Information on the Legal Rights Available to Immigrant Victims of Domestic Violence in US and Facts about Immigrating on a Marriage-Based Visa) and she told me to sit and wait for my number to be flashed. Before I thank the consul I asked her "Am I approved?" She answered "It looks like I have everything that I need from you, just wait for your number to be flashed" and she smiled at me.

And the last window, #71, a Filipino guy told me that I can go home and just wait for a text message from 2GO.

Yeheyy!!! I know what it means!! I'm approved!!

Thank God!

opps.. About the two ladies that I met during interview.. #1stlady: was told by a Filipino consul that her visa might be denied because his FiancÚ don't have a job & they just using co-sponsor (her fiancÚ's mom) but when she was interviewed by the American consul, she was approved! #2ndlady: was denied because they did not meet the rule of 2year meeting in person.

*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
