Consulate Review: Frankfurt, Germany
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 11, 2018
Embassy Review : As many have stated before, the interview in Frankfurt is easy and nothing to worry about.
I had my appointment at 08:15 and was back in my car at 09:05. Parking is hard to find, so plan in sufficient time to find a parking lot,
The lines were short, everyone was friendly. Security inside (where you go through the metal detectors) could be a little friendlier though - rude Germans, what can I say...
Wait times inside were short for me, it didn't seem like a very busy day (not knowing what a busy day looks like...). The interview was fairly short. Questions asked were along the lines of: how did you meet? describe the engagement? what are your travel plans? do either of you have kids? is it the first marriage for both of you? when was the last time you saw each other? All in all, nothing tricky. Got told I'm approved right there, handed back my originals and told my passport should be there within the next 10 days.
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
