Consulate Review: United Arab Emirates
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 6, 2019
Embassy Review : Arrived about 7:15
Waited outside until 8 or so. Weather is perfect in UAE winters.
Lots of people inside, the entire process was three hours including fingerprinting and interview.

The interview was straight forward because my fiance and I met in person in the UAE and have been together since 2012. Didn't get immediate approval because I didn't have the tax forms and according to the guy enough "chat". Had to explained that she lived in the UAE for five years so there weren't chats for that time.

Returned January 6, 2019 with tax papers and more chats from the times we were apart.

Will pick up passport within three days.

Interviewed with a man, pleasant but serious. Good luck everyone.
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
