Consulate Review: South Africa
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 17, 2019
Embassy Review : I stood in the queue outside from around 7:30am. We were let in at 8am, and I was #15.
When I was eventually called up to submit my documents, I was asked for my birth certificate original and copy, my original and copy of divorce doc as well as a copy of my fiance's (so glad I had this!!!!), I134 and other financial proof (NB they want tax transcripts!!!!!), as well as all proof of relationship - only paperclips allowed, no plastic sleeves etc.
I was then sent back to my seat to wait for the interview.
I said an oath,
She handed me the legal sheet explaining rights in the us re domestic violence etc and then chatted about it briefly.

I then was asked:
when did you meet and where/how?
when did you see him last?
Tell me about your first visit.
How much does your fiance make per year?
Questions on how I validate my short relationship pre engagement.
Questions about kids following to join.
What are your wedding plans? - what date are you marrying and where?
Then she said well, all looks good, we will cancel your tourist visa and put in the K1, and post it to you, but that may be delayed as you first need to email us your fiance's tax transcripts ASAP. and then that was it!

*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
