Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 6, 2017
Embassy Review : I wont go into too much detail, as I've written a full review of my embassy experience on my blog, you can view this here: https://yaztalksalot.wordpress.com/2017/07/01/k1-interview-experience-london/

Overall, it was a very straight forward an easy experience! Everyone I spoke to was very pleasant and helpful. The only thing that was a little bit annoying was the wait between window 1 and 2 , which was about 2.5 hours! Other than that, everything went very smoothly - everything was explained to me clearly and processing of the visa to be issued itself have been very prompt, via the CEAC tracker. The actual interview itself was about 5-10 minutes
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
