Consulate Review: New Delhi, India
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 23, 2006
Embassy Review : My fiance had her interview on Dec 20th at 8am. We reviewed all the questions that our lawyer gave us the night before, and then tried to sleep off. Since we couldn't sleep we ended up talking at 3:00am on the 20th. We then left for the Embassy at 7:00am, and arrived at 7:25am. We were in the embassy by 8am after which we had close to a three hour wait till my fiance was called for the interview.

The interview lasted only two minutes with two questions being asked. After which the interviewer looked at my fiance's passport, and noticed a lot of visa's for Europe. At which point he asked are you planning on taking a trip? She replied with yes, as I said before I am a researcher and was invited to a conference in Europe, but couldn't go because I had to submit all my documents to the VFS center. The interviewer then said well your a surely a very smart person, and then told her that her visa was approved.

Now it was 10:00am, and the two of us were on top of the world, and then went back home.

In all the New Delhi US Embassy staff was really nice.
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
