POE Review: Toronto
Event Description
Entry Date : 2018-08-25
Embassy Review : 10am arrival-
Was sent to a special line for Visa holders. There were only 5 ppl in front of me. Got to the window in about 3 min and told the BP officer I was entering with a K1. He took my finger prints and photo, collected my documents and walked me to secondary screening.
There were three booths there with agents and three ppl waiting in the room for inspection. I waited about 7 minutes and was called to the window. I tried to spy what was in my yellow packet but the only thing I did see was my fiancé's letter of intent.
They did not ask me for any other documentation. The agent simply asked me when the wedding was, stamped my passport and sent me off.
Took about 15 minutes max.
Harassment Level : Low

*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
