Consulate Review: Chennai, India
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 8, 2008
Embassy Review : I want to re-cap my fiancee's experience at the Chennai consulate.

Arrived at 8.30am.
Was allowed to enter the building at 8.45am.

At 9AM was called to present all the documents she was carrying and the person who went over the documents was a young Indian lady in her 20s.
She basically grilled my fiancee for a good 30 min.

she was asked the following questions

1.Why are you getting married? Does your parents know about it?
2.Why not pursue K-3 instead of K-1?

and this I think is almost getting personal.
3. She asked my fiancee if she was wearing the wedding chain(mangalasurthram)
and asked her to show the chain around the neckline.

4. How do your parents know each other?
She intently looked into the engagement album and pestered my fiancee with
several more questions.

Around 2.15 she was called to the counter for face to face interview with an
American lady in her 30s.

She asked the following questions:

1. How do you know each other?
2. How did this alliance come about?
3. You saw each other once and now planning on getting married. How come?
4. How would your parents come to US if you are getting married there?
5. What does your fiance do for living?

That's it...At the end she was told her passport will be couried home along
with the Visa.

*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
