Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 18, 2007
Embassy Review : K1 Interview as told by my fiancé:

His interview was for 8:00am on April 17, 2007 and he arrived at 7:30. As he waited in the queue and there were six individuals ahead of him. At 7:50am a young lady came around and requested passport identification and interview letters from everyone waiting to enter the Embassy. Upon entry, my fiancé was required to surrender his cell phone, Ipod, and belt. At that point, he followed the Embassy representative around the building to the Counselor Section. He was given a number, told to have a seat and wait until his number is called. He waited for 15 minutes and he was called to the window to surrender and sign forms DS-230 Pt. 2 and DS156K. The representative also requested his birth certificate, police records, evidence of support, and passport. She made copies of all the information and have him back his documents. From there, he was told to return to his seat. About 20 minutes later, he was called to the window by another consular officer and told to go pay his $100.00 application fee and return to the window. After he paid the application fee, he returned to the window and she told him to pay the postage for his visa. He was not asked any questions about me or our relationship!!! She did not ask to see evidence of a relationship either?!? He asked her if she had any questions and she said, “No.” He also mentioned that she was a young lady, no more that 25 years old. The last thing she mentioned was that the visa would be delivered within 5-7 working days.

And that was all she wrote!

*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
