Consulate Review: Iceland
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 19, 2017
Embassy Review : I had an appointment at 1:00 PM on a Wednesday. I was the only person there for an interview so I was able to go to the first window right away. Paid for my visa and handed over all additional documents I brought to the interview. After that the lady asked me to take a seat and wait to be called up.

I waited about 15 minutes until the consular officer called me to the interview window. The interview was quick and easy. The following questions were asked:
Why did you spend so much time in the US between 2009-2013?
Where did you meet your fiancé?
When did you become romantically involved?
What does your fiancé do?
How often have you visited him in the US?
Have you met his parents?
Have his parents visited Iceland?

The officer said he didn't see anything alarming about our case and told me I could pick up the visa in 8 days.

The information on the embassy website for K-1 visa is rather misleading. Once they received my case they sent me an email telling me to schedule an appointment for the medical examination and fill out the DS-160. They do not tell you which documents you need to bring to the interview but make sure to follow K-1 visa guidelines on https://travel.state.gov/ and you will not have any issues.
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
