Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 21, 2015
Embassy Review : My K1 interview went smoothly so I am currently waiting for my passport and my approved K1 visa. The Filipina Consul who interviewed me was very thorough. She asked me the following:
(1) My Name,
(2) Date of Birth,
(3) Petitioner's Name,
(4) How did we met?,
& (5) Why doesn't she have an ITR?
My fiancee is retired and her means of income is her pension which passed the Poverty Guideline. Anyway, after giving her some VA letters certifying my claims, she took m passport and she told me first to just wait and then she said I could just take a seat because she has to verify if it's ok that I'm not presenting an ITR. Anyway, after the long wait, my queue number flashed for the American Consul interview. The Consul was nice and asked me this:
(1) My Name,
(2) How did I met my fiancee,
(3) "As a member of the LGBT, I know you have experienced difficulty. Tell me your family's reaction when you told them that you are officially together as a couple.",
& (4) What are your wedding plans?
After answering all the question, she said: "Well, everything looks great. I have everything we need. Please take a seat and wait for our final instructions."

After 10 minutes, I was in line for the final instructions. I was given the appointment letter and was told that I could go home now and check online about when I can get my approved application and passport.

I got the visa 8 days after the interview.
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
