Comments : Other than the super long line at LAX my immigration officer was pleasant. He asked me what was bringing me to the United States and I finally got to answer - "to marry my fiance"
He then asked if he was a US citizen and I handed in the yellow envelope.
He opened it, and it had a copy of our original petition as well as my medical, he just flicked through it and made a few notes. Asked a few questions, like how we met? if we had a wedding date set? What he did for work? and then he smiled and said Congratulations, welcome home! Surreal feeling.

Consulate Review: Sydney, Australia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 26, 2018
Embassy Review : My interview was scheduled for 10:30am, but I met with another fellow VJ downstairs at 9am, and her interview was at 9:30am so I thought i'd try my luck and head in with her (and I wanted to watch the victorious moment she was approved)
We both went through the security check area together and tbh they didn't even ask me what time my interview was so I just strolled on through.
Like others have explained in previous reviews you RACE others out of the elevator to get the first number ticket (jks)
The first time your number is called it's purely for fingerprints and they take your documents.
I probably waited around half an hour before being called to my interview and I had the pleasure of listening to others love stories and proposals, LEGIT you can hear everything.
I thankfully got called to a counter they'd just opened right down the end near the window so I had no audience but I was asked the following questions.
- How did you and your fiance meet?
- How many times did you see each other in person before he proposed?
- What does he do for work?
- What do you do for work?
- Have you ever lived in any other countries?
- Where do you currently live?
and BOOM approved.
I took a massive display folder filled with further evidence but I wasn't asked for it (seems pretty standard)
By the time I was outa there it was ALMOST 10:30am so I got super lucky and the whole process was completed an hour earlier than I expected!
Just follow your checklist provided and make sure all your documents are in order and it'll be a smooth run!

I am located in Melbourne and my passport was delivered on the 5th business day after my interview.
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.
