Consulate Review: Peru
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 31, 2007
Embassy Review : My fiance and I just got back from our interview! He went to go buy a phone card so we can call our families so I am writing this review in the meantime because I am so excited!!

Our interview was at 730 AM so we arrived at 7 as requested and waited in line, went through security, etc. By the time we got in the embassy it was 730. We waited about 5-10 minutes and they called us. Window 13. The lady asked for the forms DS 156 (2 copies), DS 156K (OF 156K in the packet), DS 157 (for guys only)... medical exam envelope... payment receipt... passport... birth certificate... police certificates, etc. She then asked us for photos and asked my fiancee a couple questions (she didn´t talk to me) like how we met, where we met, about the times I came to Peru, what his ocupation was. Then she told us to sit down and wait. We were prepared to wait an hour or so, but they called us after only 10 minutes! This time to door 15. I was nervous because I´ve heard stories about door 15 and the mean guy with the glassess... lol. But, we entered and it was a nice american lady. She looked at our forms and everything we had already given. She asked us some questions, a couple to my fiancee, the same questions as before like where we met and when but then she started to talk to me in English (my fiance doesnt speak English) and asked me where I work and about our relationship, if I live with my parents, where we are going to live, and when we plan to get married. She looked at the photos that I had sent in my petition and only asked me about one photo (where we were with his sister and niece) and then said she didn´t need to see more and everything looked good and that she was going to approve the visa.

We left in amazement at how easy it was. I think it is definately the people we talked to and that we were very prepared. The whole interview only took about 50 minutes and we left the embassy at 820.

Im so glad!!!
Ask me if you have any questions!

Local US CIS Office Review: Tucson AZ
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : September 18, 2007
Embassy Review : We went to our AOS interview today and it was APPROVED!! Yay!! Our interview was at 9:03AM but we got there about 8:30 and waited. There was only one other couple there. A lady called us at about 8:55A and we went and sat in her office. She interviewed us both in Spanish since my husband doesn't speak English. One of his friends came in case he needed an interpreter and they wouldn't let me translate but luckily the lady spoke Spanish. She asked to see our passports and ID's and then asked a few questions like how did we meet, when did we meet. She asked me how many times I had been to Peru and I told her about 8-9 times and she was like..."Really, that's expensive, how did you afford that" like she didn't really believe me - but I just told her that I worked and saved money to go and when I was younger my parents also helped me out and also my church when I went on missions trips there. She asked me what my husband's parents names were and how many people came to our wedding. She asked us why we wanted to live here instead of in Peru. She asked him for our home address and telephone number and his social security number and some of the "No" questions. She had a HUGE file of basically every paper we've ever sent in. She asked to see some documents of stuff we have together so we showed her bank statements, medical/life insurance and a letter from my dad stating we are living in his house for the time being. I asked her if she wanted to see my wedding pictures but she said no. I was disspointed b/c I worked really hard on our photo albums of our wedding. She asked what we had in common and why we were attracted to each other. Then she had us sign a paper saying that the green card was only conditional and that in 90 days of expiration we need to apply for the conditional status to be removed, blah, blah, blah and that was it - she said he would receive his green card within 30 days. All that only took about 10 minutes - we were out of there by 9:10 and we never even showed all of the other documents. At least that is over and we get a break for 2 years!!!!

*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
