Consulate Review: United Arab Emirates
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 28, 2018
Embassy Review : Interview went well, was shorter than I imagined. The officer only asked for my documents and didn't seem to go over them, he asked about my relationship with my fiancé (very basic questions - you will know if your relationship is genuine). He told me I was approved and I should receive my visa in a 2 days time and gave me white slip of paper saying the same.

Rating a 4 - because it was still stressful!
Rating : 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.
