Consulate Review: Dublin, Ireland
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 5, 2019
Embassy Review : So I completed my interview with the embassy today, It was reallly straightforward. I had the following documents:
Affidavit of support +copy of petitioners tax returns.
2 x Passport pictures (5”x5”)
Police cert + copy
Birth Cert + copy
Copy of police report from my previous stolen Passport
Evidence of relationship - I had print outs of pictures from the last 6 months. I saw other with physical photographs but I just had a word doc with all the evidence.
Sealed medical.

I had other documents but I wasn’t asked for any of it.

The pre interview was a breeze, got called to 1 window to give in all The above documents. The Irish lady behind the window was a litttle miffed that I’d sent in my notice of readiness before my medical came back even though I had it on the day. There were a few people ahead of me and I overheard the majorities medical hadn’t come back in time. If this is the case for you, go do the interview and send in the medical after. It’s perfectly normal and acceptable.

The actual interview was quite pleasant. The CO chatted to me about my Fiancé and my life. He asked the following:
Tell me about your fiancé, who is she?
What does she do for work?
How long has she worked there?
Where is she from?
What part of DC does she live in? (He trained in DC so was just checking i had my facts right)
Has she met your family?
What do you do for work?
Where are her parents from?
Wedding plans?

I think I’ve covered it all. He then said, ok we’re all set! He congratulated me and wished me well. About 45 minutes after i walked into the embassy I was approved. Delighted.

PS - I had a few business visas denied in 2017/2018 and the CO didn’t even mention them so if you have a similar case.. don’t worry.
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
