Consulate Review: Sydney, Australia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 29, 2019
Embassy Review : My fiance's interview was scheduled for 11AM. He had no issues getting to the consulate, and arrived about an hour early. As others have posted, he went through security and they kept his phone. They also went through his documents quickly and put them back into a folder to take with him.

After getting off the lift, he took a number and sat down (10:15AM). About 10 minutes later, his number was called and they took his birth certificate (copy and original), police check, I-134, and supporting documents. He sat down again and waited approximately 1 hour before his number was called again (I assume mainly because he arrived quite early). His actual interview lasted less than 10 minutes.

Questions that were asked:
1. How did you meet?
2. When have you visited each other?
3. Have you been married?
4. Do you have kids?

They did not look at any of the "proof of ongoing relationship" documents we brought. He was immediately told that we were approved, and to expect to receive his passport/visa in approximately 2 weeks.

*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
