Consulate Review: Morocco
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 22, 2007
Embassy Review : On February 7, 2007, My fiance was interviewed for about 15 minutes. He was asked detailed questions about me and my family. He had about 80 pictures of me with him and with his family, and the CO looked at them all. He took logs of Skype calls (our principal means of communication) as well as printouts of chats, emails between us, and emails between him and my parents. The CO did not look at any of that. He was given Form 221(g) and placed in administrative processing. On February 14, 2007, the consulate called him and told him to return to Casa the next day with his passport. He did, and they sent him away, saying there was a problem with a machine and they could not issue the visa, and that he should return on February 20. He did, and was again told to return the next day. I emailed Casablanca to ask about the status of his case. The next day, February 21, 2007, he received his visa with an expiration date of August 13, 2007.

*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
