Comments : Fiance went through Chicago this morning (Dec 6, 2015) at around 8am. The longest wait was in the line of people waiting to go through, but once he got to the CBP officer, the officer just checked out the envelope, stamped his K1 visa and told him he had 90 days to get married and that was it.

He said the CBP seemed pretty happy.

Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 31, 2015
Embassy Review : This is on behalf of my fiance:

He had his interview Sept 22nd, everything previously posted about lining up on the left side of the door with your back to the yellow posts are correct! His interview was at 740am, and it went pretty much about the same as everyone elses.

He said the interviewer was stern, but over all it wasn't too bad. We did recieve a 221g request for more documents.

Other than that, the CO remarked how much information we had and that he was impressed on how prepared everything was. He told my fiance once they recieved a new I-134 from a new cosponsor, he could have his visa issued in a couple of weeks.
We're sending in our papers from our new cosponsor on Monday, so we'll see what happens!

Overall, good interview, with some consulate officer discretion involved.

*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
