Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K3 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 13, 2006
Embassy Review : ok so i know u all must be dieng for the details so il try to make it as detailed as possible. so i got ther at
about 6 got in at 7:10 my name was called pretty quiclky the first lady that i spoke to took all my doc u ments an gave me my xray bakcn an gave me a pink slip to put my pp# on an told me to wait until i heard my name again in like 5- 1o mins i did this lady was an american an she now had all my docs she was not freindly but polite an busines like " she the sorted through my docs an gave back wat she did no need ( tax returns for 2004 and 2003) they only need the most recent one , she gave back the bank statements an pay check stubs. an then it began " she drilled me like the lawyers do on law on order(i think it cuz we are a younger couple an i was aloone) she asked me at least 25 question soem of them were reapeated or phrased differley to try an trick me but i was ready for her she tried hard but i gave quick correct ans always an was confident.
jus some eg. of the question she asked
when we met
how we met
her age
how long we been together whe we got married
wher she live
do i kno ne fam
an lots more......then she aske if i had ne proof of relation ship i showed her pic an postcards an the finally when she could not find ne thing else she told me dat igot the visa. ( a good word of advise for those who have upcoming dates if u can be with ur spouse pls do so an if not mak sure they are fully knowledge able an confident becuz trust me if i had buckeld one bit i know i would get on big fat denial she was gunning for me. u can also pray you get a jamaican interviewer much better while i was getting drilled this was lady was being interviewed an the ja interviewer strated ask qustion in standard english. whe she was not getting ne where she jus stop an bust out in raw patios i was dieng.
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
