Consulate Review: Dominican Republic
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 9, 2015
Embassy Review : Got there at 4:30 in the morning and was the 2nd person on line for an 8AM appointment, which only determines what line you line up on. I was on line until about 7AM and went inside.

Took a ticket, and was visited by the first person within 15 minutes. The process was very straightforward - he went over the paperwork and that's it. He did not care about nothing else, and told us to have a seat and wait for the second interview.

The second interview took forever. We waited about 2 hours, and fought sleepiness and frustration. By the time our number was called, we totally forgot about being nervous and just wanted to get our interview over with.

I must say, the woman who helped us was extremely friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better person. She seemed saavy enough to know about using Viber and WhatsApp and generally made us feel as she understood how it's possible to carry conversations.

I had been to the Dominican Republic eight times to see my fiance so it wasn't a real stretch to convince her it was real. We know everything about each other, have had mutual friends for years and I lived with her in the DR for some time.

It was an incredibly smooth interview process. Only the waiting sucked.
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
