Event Description
Review Date : January 24, 2019
Embassy Review : My fiance said the interview was very easy and everyone was very nice.

She was asked:
1) How did we meet?
2) What are our wedding plans?
3) What was my occupation (petitioner)?

The CO looked at the paperwork we provided, smiled, and said, "Congratulations, you have been approved."

Rating : Very Good

Hello, congratulations! My fiancé will have her interview in Guangzhou in a couple weeks. Did they really only ask three questions?

Thank you! They did only ask my fiance 3 questions. The interview only lasted 5 minutes. My interview seems to be abnormal, not the rule. Some factors that may have made it easier: My paperwork was immaculate. My fiance speaks perfect English. We are same age/religion. The interviewer was laughing and seemed to relate with my fiance. We just got lucky.

Also, congratulations to getting to this point. I pray that you have an easy interview also!

Random question, on the checklist of items to bring for interview there is one that says "Online Registration Confirmation Page", which is from when you sign up on ustraveldocs.com. For the life of me I cant figure out where to find that? Do you recall?

I was thinking that was the DS-160 confirmation. Join the China WeChat group and ask your question there directly for a better response. https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/692769-k-1-visa-cr-1-visa-wechat-group/

*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
