Comments : When arrived at Bush International Airport, my then fiancé went to the citizen side and I went to the Immigration officer and handed my packet where they took me to another office and opened the packet. They asked me a few questions but wasn't really related to my case and then said welcome to Houston, handed me a paper about having to get married within 90 days but it was in Spanish but I don't even speak Spanish haha, maybe because I came from South America. But yeah, my first language is Dutch but I already knew what to do so off we go to get our luggages!!

Consulate Review: Guyana
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 24, 2015
Embassy Review : Appointment was at 7:30 AM. My fiance and I arrived at 7.00 AM, the line wasn't too long so we were inside within 10 minutes. Seated in the waiting area, until my name was called, went inside where they collected my passport, our birth certificates, my police certificate and his i-134. After that we went back to the seating area. Don't remember exactly after how long but it seem really fast when they called my name again. Went in to another window where we were being interviewed.

Questions that she asked were:
- how did you two meet and when did you meet face to face
- how long have you know each other
- if we have plans for the wedding and when it will be
- are my parents coming to the wedding in the states
- if we were born in the same country

After a few question she told us that my visa was approved!!


By 8:30 AM we were outside the Embassy.
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
