Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 11, 2019
Embassy Review : The interview and process at the embassy went very well! It’s a beautiful building, very grand!

I was let in 15 mins before my interview at 10am.

I accidentally had a glass bottle of perfume in the bag I took with me so I had to throw that in the bin when going through security!

The queue inside was very long so I remembered people saying jump the queue which I did. It felt very unnatural and un-English of me 😂 The last at the desk stuck some stickers on my DS160 then I went in the lift to floor 1. A guy working there who was standing on floor 1 told me to go to the right but I realised I needed to go to window 20-21 which was to the left and around the corner.

I waited a short time for my number to be called. A young man who was really friendly took my documents. After that I waited a lot longer, like 2 hours until my number was called again! I was too nervous to read my book so I just say people watching and watching the numbers pop up on the screen!

Finally. It was my interview time. The man was friendly and asked some very simple questions about our relationship that I answered enthusiastically. He then told me my visa was approved and I cried 🙈 I was so overwhelmed, this process has been really hard on me, I’ve had a lot of anxiety!

Now I am SO happy and relieved! ❤️🇺🇸🇬🇧

Overall it was not as horrible and scary as I thought it was going to be. Just be prepared as possible, go OTT! I have so many things they didn’t even ask to see but I felt better in myself for having them ready in case! Good luck!

*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
