Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 7, 2008
Embassy Review : Griff had the 8:00 interview and was second in the queue. Once inside the embassy, he had no troubles. They asked for his paperwork, where they remarked at how well organized he was. He then sat down, waited 2 minute before his name was called. Went up to the window, exchanged a pleasantry and was asked 3 questions:

1. Where did you meet?
2. When did you meet?
3. Why will you live in the US rather than the UK?

Said once the medical results were back he'd have his passport and visa within a few days. Then wished him a good day. And that was it!
Rating : Very 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
