Consulate Review: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 3, 2007
Embassy Review : All interviews for K-1 seem to be scheduled at 10 AM. My fiance arrived at 7:30, they reviewed her document stack at 11 and let everyone out to go to lunch. Finally at 3:30 she was interviewed but the transalator asked what was essentially the ethicity of my previous spouse instead of where she was born ( US ). There impression at that point was that I had not disclosed all information. This resulted in a a blue slip and we spent the next week preparing a package for review. To our delight the day it was submitted, she was asked to wait and 90 minutes later or so she was given the pink paper ( approval ) for VISA. The consulate people seemed relatively friendly but business like. Since we had success I cant complain.
Rating : 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
