Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 10, 2019
Embassy Review : Got to Vauxhall station at 10:40am (my appointment was at 11:30am) so took the scenic route to the embassy along the river with a coffee - it takes about 15 minutes and is a lovely walk.

Arrived at the embassy at just before 11am, having stopped at the big Waitrose next door to grab a drink (you can take bottles in the embassy, as long as they’re sealed and made of plastic - definitely worth grabbing a drink and a snack, as you may be in there for a while and there’s no vending machines).

There was no queue outside and no queue to go through security - all very quick and simple.

Once in the immigrant visa waiting area, I was called to the first window after about 10 minutes, where I was asked for my current passport, reaffirmation of intent to marry (my petition expired last month, hence me needing one), my ACRO, birth certificate, affidavit of support and supporting proof (2018 tax transcript). I wasn’t asked for anything else.

There was then a wait of about an hour until I was called to the second window - although I believe that was pretty quick - two ladies who I was talking with were, both waiting for around 2 hours for their second slot.

I was at the second window for about 4-5 minutes - and had a nice chat with the interviewing officer - the only questions she asked me were around why I had a B1/2 visa and when I planned on moving - however, I do talk a lot, so maybe I answered some potential questions without being asked 😆.

She then told me I was approved and I should get my visa within the next couple of weeks 🎉 🎊 🇺🇸 .

Both interviewing officers and all members of staff I spoke with, including security and reception, were all very friendly and helpful.

*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
