Consulate Review: Bogota, Colombia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 23, 2006
Embassy Review : A quick overview of our experience.
ARRIVE early. We did. Appointments are at 7. We got there at 6. There was already a line. They got long fast after we arrived. We got at just the right time. I think 5:45 would have been better.

You will see 3 poles with numbers on them. Go ahead and get behind pole 3. Pole 3 is for K1´s and some others. At 6:30 they come out and started asking questions about your appointments and reason for being at the embassy. Shortly after they start letting you in. You will then be given a packet to organize your papers requested in packet 3 and 4. Then a woman will call you and check off your name. She will then send you to a window with these papers and all of your original papers from the I129F will be put together. After that you will be ask to wait in chairs near another window. This is the long wait period. Then you will hear your fiancees name called and both of you will go to that window for your interview. They ask us all the normal questions.
How did you meet?
What does your family think?
Does he have pets?
What kind of car does he drive?
What does your family think of you living in America?
Why do you want to marry him?
Does he have children, or want children and how many?

Then he talked with me. Ask me about past relationships and why am I wanting to marry her. He also ask me how many times I had visited Bogota.
Then he said you are granted a visa and to return at 4 tomorrow.
Rating : 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
