Consulate Review: Mumbai, India
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 13, 2019
Embassy Review : my fiancee had her interview on oct 10 at 7:15. got there at 6:30. there is no line just people sitting and waiting outside. 7:15 appt people were called at 7 am. She chose Punjabi as her language. people with Punjabi preference were put in separate line. A Punjabi guy sorted her paperwork. only took i-134, W2 and may be tax transcript. didn't take job letter or pay-stubs or bank statements. she was interviewed by a Punjabi speaking guy. Not a English speaker with translator as i thought it would be.
Asked Who is calling you? whats your relationship to him? whats the address? Where does he works? How did you guys meets and when?
and a trick question about where did we go after marriage? to which she answered not married yet and planing marriage in USA. Why not get married in India? we had our other reasons but not wanting to stay away from each other after marriage seems to work fine. what is your qualification? Do you work? she did before and answer with where she worked and is free now....> Approved.
Ours is arranged marriage. I front loaded out application with everything pics, passport stamps, tickets, boarding passes, ring receipts, hotel receipts, and notarized personal statement from relatives that arranged out meeting. interviewer was very soft spoken and nice according to my fiancee.
Rating : Very Good

Hey congrats, so you have to booked the interview or they send you the interview letter and nvc process is only 1 month , right? It says the interview time took 2 months after your case left from nvc so they take 2 months or you made an interview after 2 months ?

Got my second approval in mail which was approved on 09/09/2019. My question is this when can I schedule my appointment with Embassy in Mumbai India? I mean once I received case number  or should I wait to schedule until it reach to Mumbai?

Did u receive the packet 4 over the email or they mailed u a physical packet? When can we schedule the medical interview? Is it only after you receive instructions from Embassy?

*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.
