Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 3, 2017
Embassy Review : My fiance appointment time was 7am and got there before 630am

She had 11 questions some overlapped , the CO was a white male

1.Whose calling for you?
2.Tell me about how you met?
3.Where was he born?
4.Are both his parents Nigerians?
5.Where does he work?
6.What company?
7.How long has he worked there?
8.Are you going to do a traditional wedding afterwards?
9.Whats your fiance's birthday?
10.Whats your birthday?
11.What are your wedding plans?

Got approved and handed the white visa pick up paper and the marriage visa pamphlet .She was out within 3 hours , she did note that some ppl were getting denied and the ones who were much older applicants, the young ones were getting approved with no issues .

Some factors : 2 trips , same age (26) , young couple , no criminal records, no kids , no past marriages , no past petitions , met in person , known each other for 15 years , met each other families , front-loaded petition ,practiced several times over the k1 process , 1 tourist visa denial ( we mentioned it in the petition and on the ds 160 ), same religion

I would make sure you avoid all red flags and make sure your case has no complications .Nigeria isnt that bad of an embassy alot of people just dont correctly go over the process or take shortcuts.

*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
