Consulate Review: Madrid, Spain
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 17, 2019
Embassy Review : My interview experience in Madrid couldn't be better. I arrived outside and on account of me having crutches, I skipped the outside queue and went directly to the check-in desk where they took my passport briefly and gave it back with two labels and a ticket with a number. Once on the waiting area, I had to wait for about 35 minutes before I was called into a window.
The very nice lady spoke Spanish and asked for my passport, medical examination and envelope with the X-RAY. She proceeded to take a look at the medical examination and stapled it to my file. She then told me to wait to be called for the interview.

I waited for around 45 minutes and I was called to a different window with a different lady. She was also very nice. She asked me why I was in crutches and was happy to hear that I didn't have much longer. She asked me to swear that everything I was going to say was true and started the interview.

The first question was about how and when we met, and how did the relationship develop. She asked me what did I liked and disliked about my fianceé, what did she do and then she asked me for photos of our relationship. She then switched to English and asked me how I learned it. Afterward, she asked me about something that I honestly can't remember but I answered saying that my fiancée and I had just signed a lease and at that moment she abruptly interrupted me and gave me a sheet of paper saying that my visa was approved!!

I was in a bit of a shock because of how sudden that was, but I am very happy with the outcome!

*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
