Consulate Review: Bangkok, Thailand
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 9, 2007
Embassy Review : Her appointment was at 7am. She arrived at embassy at 7:45am as attorney told her too. Her paperwork was turned in at 8am and she begin her wait. She was the third girl to be called. Her interview ended up being at 10am. The interviewer was a Japanese male. Not the Japanese woman that has been doing a lot of the interviews lately. I found out later that this was his FIRST day. He asked her several questions:
1)How did you meet?
2)What does your fiancee do for a living?
3)Did he kneel when he ask you to marry you?
4)What was the name of the place were you had your engagement party?
5)How many times has your fiancee been married?
6)Have you been married before?
7)Where does your fiancee work? What company?
8)How many times has he visited?
9)Does your fiancee have any children?

After the questions, the interviewer just said; "I can give you the visa". That was pretty much it. He didn't smile, joke, or congratulate; he was very somber. I don't know what the deal is with BKK embassy. I guess all the interviewers are Japanese now. Don't know if he spoke Thai or not. He only talked to her in English. He asked her several questions twice.
My fiancee told me as the interviews progressed, he was asking even more questions to each girl. It seems since he is new, he still is learning the "trade". My fiancee told me that one of the girls interviewing was rewarded her Visa, however when she came to pick the Visa up, the embassy could not locate some paperwork and she had to get the paperwork before they gave her her Visa. Apparently it wasn't her fault; the embassy lost her paperwork. I think she got it taking care of though.
I will not rate this embassy a 5, simply because of the the interviewer was new and did not know his job too well. Other than that it went ok.

I hope this helps.

Rating : Good

POE Review: Los Angeles
Event Description
Entry Date : 2007-08-21
Embassy Review : I wasn't with her when she arrived, but it went easy and quick. The officer made one comment that she was going to marry "someone rich". I am not rich and I don't know why he said this. He didn't ask her any questions and she breezed thru. They didn't do a bag check either. She only had three hours and made it to her connection in the terminal with 1.5 hours to spare.

*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.
