Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 28, 2017
Embassy Review : My fiance had to fly from Mindanao to Manila for her scheduled interview. She had to take a few days off from her work schedule as an elementary school teacher. She did not want to fly there alone, so I purchased a ticket for her and her niece. I also reserved 2 nights in a hotel near the US consulate. They had a relative living in Manila, so the relative met them and showed them around Manila. My fiance does not like Manila, because of the bad reputation for crime.
I was in the USA, so I had to make all the arrangements from here. I sent them some money using Xoom, to pay for taxi and food while in Manila.
The interview went well and she is now living here in California as my wife. We are applying for a green card.javascript:emoticon('')

POE Review: San Francisco
Event Description
Entry Date : 1017-01-31
Embassy Review : We arrived about 8 PM at SFO from Manila. It was a crowded flight, so there were many people going through customs and immigration. It was my second time through, but the first time for my fiance, who is here on a K1 Visa. There were 2 immigration officers on duty, checking passports and Visas. We waited in line for about 20 minutes before it was out turn. The immigration officer was an Asian woman. She asked a few questions after we handed her the Visa packet and the passport. She opened the sealed Visa packet. She asked when we were planning to get married. I told her that we had not chosen a date yet. About 5 minutes with her and we were on our way. She stamped the passport. She kept the Visa packet that was given at the US consulate in Manila.

We had the biometrics appointment last week on Feb. 23, 2021 in Santa Rosa. It went very quickly, less than 10 minutes. This was for the permanent green card. The conditional green card has expired.

*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.
