Consulate Review: Morocco
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 2, 2017
Embassy Review : My interview was short, took 5 to 7min only. I was only asked a few general questions about my fiancé and our relationship. The CO was very friendly.

However, right before I went into Room 7 for the interview, the other CO at Window 6 gave me that DS-5535 form to fill out. He told me I was in AP and that it would only take 2 weeks for me to get my passport back with the visa, only to see myself actually wait two months and a half instead...

Anyway, good things don't come easy and all good things are worth the struggle.

And thanks to all VJForum members who have helped us with our visa journey

*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
