Consulate Review: Vancouver, Canada
Review Topic: K3 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 14, 2006
Embassy Review : Well I finally got my K-3 Visa after waiting so patiently!! My interview was at 10am and of course I got there early. So I stood in line. There were people who had bags and cell phones and were turned away at the door of the consulate.

My actual interview happened at about 11:30am after all my paper work was checked out by the lady in the booth. I DID NOT need an affidavit of support for my K-3 visa(I-134 form). So I guess you can take that out from the US embassy profile for Vancouver. However, the lady infront of me had a K-1 visa and they did ask her for the affidavit of support. So I guess ONLY K-3 visas don't need one! The lady told me to go and pay $100 for application fee.

The guy who interviewed me was cool. He was joking with me while asking me questions about my wife. He asked me where we met?,How long ago?,Why do I want to move to the US?.Why she doesn't want to come here?..He also asked me if I watch the show "24". I said No. Why?. And then he said that there is a character in there who looks like me and has the same name as me..Tony.. I started laughing and told him that I'd watch it next time it came on.

Now I will be going to the US in July after my wife comes here to visit me in Canada. I am so excited. I want to thank everyone at VJ for all the helpful answers to my questions.

I will keep you informed once move there and start my AOS!!

*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
