Comments : As have been posted throughout this site.. the mechanic of the interview is similar, but in our case the most important item is that the interview officer was not a English speaking native and we had problems of understanding him ( we Spanish speaking natives). In addition, he was very interested in finding out about my past marriages ( three), me the Petitioner. Everything went well, spite his stern behavior, serious look and his military manners. It work for us to be humble, polite and easy speaking, but most of all, we were ready with more than enough documentation.. We want to thank VJ and all members, you make us ready for mishaps, if any.

Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Peru
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 23, 2015
Embassy Review : DONE, PERFECT AND VISA APPROVED..!!!
This is are datails of what happened this morning..we got there at 8am for our 8:45am appointment but the consulate was overruned with many US visa seekers..we got approved by 12:30pm after the regular documents check and normal questionning by officers and clerical employees..
In our case ..there were two specific questions.. what type of work petitioner was doing which was reflected in my Income Tax and because we got religiously married a year ago.. the asked if both of us were of the same church denomination.

After that the interviewer was very much interested in knowing on how we meet, if our family was ok with the relationship...and at the end..the officer explained about domestic violence, which in US is very different than in any other country and blah ..blah..blahhh...

my advise to future applicants are.. get at least an hour early of your interview, be ready with the documents they ask.. and also.. bring pictures, and pictures and pictures of you and your fiance(e) with families, with friends.. I noticed that they questioned other candidates how the communicate with each other.. whatsapps, Skipe, telephone, texts. etc..

It does not hurt to bring as much as you can. In our case, we brought, pictures, telephone statements, Money transfers receipts, email records, and three Affidavits of Supports..including a letter for services rendered to an NGO for which both of us have been working for more than 8 years in Peru. I believe that letter impressed on them of our real commitment to each other and to the community we live.

I am very well allaround knowledgeable of these type of interviews so I filled the void of my fiance inexperience. Still I copy and paste in sheets, most of Peru postings in VJ about K 1 s and read them loud to my fiance, and explained her what it meant each of the statements.

VJ is a great place for all of us.. and I want to thank the creators, designers and hosting persons for giving, such a wonderful help..!!

*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
