Consulate Review: Ankara, Turkey
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 29, 2015
Embassy Review : The whole procedure took about an hour and went so smoothly.
the officer was gentle, actually he asked me about 30-40 questions bur it wasn't like interrogation, you can tell it was almost like a friendly conversation.
it was the first time that the embassy asked about the military card (perhaps because of the Syrian situation). the question were varied, he asked about my carrier, about my intention to get phD, about my family, my brother and sisters in low, and the last question was when I had been with my fiancee for the last time? and when I told him it had been almost 11 months, he said oh God I'm not gonna make wait any longer, Congratulations!
Generally I was so comfortable, and I left the embassy exactly after one hour.
so good luck everyone.
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.
