Consulate Review: Singapore
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 10, 2018
Embassy Review : My interview was on the 10th July 2018 at 2.15pm,
I arrived 15minutes before and went through the security checks, there was a slight delay because the embassy actually made a typo in my interview letter where it said Wednesday, 10 Jul 2018 instead of Tuesday, so I had a mini panic attack there. After collecting all the electronics/battery operated items, I was allowed to enter and had to go through another round of physical bag check.

The room itself is very bank-teller-esque. There are 8 counters but only 2 were open (counters 7 and 8) and there were only 3 other people there so all this went relatively quick.
For our application we used a joint sponsor, therefore some questions pertain to them.
Staff were friendly and professional, and some even came off stern, but it was expected since they're there to sniff out any fraudulent activities.

The person at counter 7 (document collection) asked me the following questions:
- Is the petitioner currently working?
- How is the joint sponsor related to the petitioner?
- Does the joint sponsor have any dependents?

Then for the actual interview at counter 8, I was asked:
- How did the petitioner and I meet?
- When did we meet for the first time in person?
- Did the petitioner come visit me? When did he come over to meet me.
- Does the petitioner work? Where did he work before/what will he be working as soon?
- What does the joint-sponsor work as?

* The interviewer was very stern/expressionless and seemed a bit skeptical about our story, so I told her I had pictures of him visiting me and my family. She prompted me to show her our relationship evidence, so I showed her pictures of my fiance with my family, extended family, our boarding passes from when I left the USA and from when my fiance left Singapore.

After she was convinced that we were indeed in a legitimate relationship, she gave me a warm smile and her congratulations and told me to expect my visa to be delivered in about 2 weeks.

*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
