Consulate Review: Belgium
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 12, 2016
Embassy Review : My fiancé and I got to Brussels around 1 PM. We knew they wouldn't let us in that early so we got a coffee somewhere. At 2 PM we made our way there only to be told that my fiancé couldn't come with me. It seemed like the guards didn't exactly know whether he could come in or not so they just told him he couldn't. When I asked the consular officer about that he seemed surprised they didn't let him in. So if you want to bring your fiancé/e, maybe it would be useful to ask in advance.

The interview was straightforward. I went in, got called up to a booth and I handed over all the paperwork I was asked to bring. The woman behind the counter was very kind. After she took all my paperwork, she took my fingerprints and then told me to sit back down and wait until I was called up for my interview. I had to wait around 40 minutes for my interview, which was really short. The consular officer made me swear to tell the truth, he took my fingerprints and then asked me a few questions about the relationship and my fiancé.

It takes 7 days for them to have the passport ready with the visa. I think if you're Belgian you can have them send it to you via mail, but since I'm not from Belgium I have to go and pick it up.
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
