Consulate Review: Bangkok, Thailand
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 29, 2019
Embassy Review : Interview comments: Pooky arrived 90 minutes early for her interview. They took her into the interview room where there were 4 other couples on k1 Visa interview. Lots of people for travel visas. They spent 30 min looking at her documentation she brought with her-Passport, proof of being single, birth certificate. She then met with a interviewer who spoke thai and English, but asked only 3 questions in English-Where did you meet, where is he from, and what does he do in his job. Okay, Visa approved. You should receive in 7 days. Visa arrived in 3 days.

On April 3rd, I received a RFE letter, which arrived today April 8th. I forgot to check Yes or No to question #55- Did you meet your beneficiary through the service of an IMB? (International Marriage Broker). All I have to do is check No and return the self addressed envelope.

*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
