Consulate Review: Bagdad, Iraq
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 1, 2017
Embassy Review : it was a crappy experience, but i was approved at last! the person interviewing me was reading from another person's application and my answers did not match of course. he was a dumb interviewer, we did k1 and he was saying that I married my wife few years ago! and I kept saying no, he said you should apply for a married visa not k1, I did not know what to say at that time he started saying that i was lying for that! asked him that I wanna see the application that he was reading from and I could not believe that he is saying what he is saying, He turned the monitor towards me and it was a surprise! he was reading from someone who had the same first name as me!!!!!!! what!!??? are you serious!!! what a fool. He did not even look at my wife's name!! after that everything changed I was the boss at that time, he just went through the papers and said that I was approved and he was sorry for all of that crap! I received my VISA 2 weeks after. just a tip for anyone interviewing in baghdad. be prepared to starve to death. I got to the embassy at 7 am and had my interview at 2 pm! and they only offer you water and no food and you can not bring food with you. javascript:emoticon('')

*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
