Consulate Review: Gabon
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 21, 2016
Embassy Review :

So I arrived there at 7am ...the embassy opens at 8am they let me in took my bags and phones as they're not allowed in the building...
Waited 30 min ..I was the only one ...then a lady called me and asked why I was there, asked for my documents, then took my fingerprints and sent me to the cashier to pay. Then told me sit again and wait. All that took about 30 min..
Then the CO came and called me..he was very very very nice and were the questions:
Where does your fiance lives?
How long has he been living there?
How did you meet him?
When was the last time you saw him?
Why him specifically?
Do you guys talk everyday?
"OK Mam,I approve your visa"
Then he said" we will call you when it's ready to pick up"
He didn't ask for any chat log or picturesomething or evidence of relationship...
Rating : Very 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
