Consulate Review: El Salvador
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 27, 2019
Embassy Review : My fiance arrived at the embassy and was asked for his appointment confirmation letter and gave him a number.
He waited to be called and they asked him for the following documents: Passport, Police Solvency, DS-160, original certified birth certificate, MRV receipt, DUI (identification card/ ID)

He was asked to wait until his number was called. Once called, he went up to a window and the officer started the interview.
He asked:
1. What is your name & date of birth
2. What is your fiances name?
3. Where does your fiance work?
4. How did you meet your fiance?
5. (Follow up to #4)So you know her mother?
6. Why did you decide to get married in the U.S. instead of here in El Salvador?
7. Why are you getting married?
8. Have you committed a crime and been convicted?
9. Have you traveled to the U.S. before?
10. Have you lived in any other country?
Do you or your fiance have any tattoos?
11. Do you have photos?


My fiance said the interview itself was very quick, the waiting to be called takes the longest. He was handed a paper that explains how he can track his passport.

Although we took the I-134 and supporting documents they did not ask him for them.
Rating : Very Good

*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
