Comments : We had a good interview experience except the officer gave us a RFE! He said Othman needed the varicella shot. I asked him how come we didn't get an RFE before today and he said that he just got our file. In my opinion, whoever had our file for the past 4 months should have looked over it and sent us the RFE.

Review Topic: K3 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 16, 2006
Embassy Review : OK here is what Othman told me yesterday about his interview. First he waited for 4 and a half hours for the interview. The CO started asking him questions in french but his french was not clear. So, he asked Othman "do you speak english" and he replied quickly "yes sir". The questions:

1. When did u meet her?
2. When did u meet in person? After Othman answered, the CO said "u met after a year that sounds good".
3. What is her work?
4. What is the name of the company? After Othman answered, the CO said "oh a good company".
5. What did she do before?
6. Does she have children?
7. What are their ages?
8. How old are you?
9. How old is your wife?
10. How long did she spend here?
11. CO asked about the cities we visited there.

He looked at the wedding photo album and he wanted to know why there was not many people there for our wedding. He told the CO only my little family. The CO then looked at the other photo album. Made a comment about a city we had visited. Also, when the Co gave our marriage paper back to him, he asked Othman is this the paper you were signing in the photo. Othman says the CO had a big smile. Also, whenever Othman answered questions the CO would look at the computer in front of him. Othman believes the decision was already made before he even had his interview. At the end of the interview the CO gave him a small green receipt and told him to "please come tomorrow at 3 pm to get your visa and we will keep the passport until you get it tomorrow". He was very surprised since he saw too many refusals and pending visas. He says the two ladies were so ugly. One lady was the asian lady and the other was the "evil blond". He believes the CO knew what he was going to tell each one at the interview. Thank God that Othman had the male CO.

*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
