Event Description
Review Date : November 19, 2020
Embassy Review : My fiance said the interview was very pleasant. They asked how we met, whether our families had met, and what I (the petitioner) do for work. They gave him the photos I had included in our 129f application, and gave him a green slip to pick up the visa next Tuesday (after a Thursday interview).
Rating : Very Good

Hello what was your RFE about?
Green_rabbit on 2019-12-19 said:
For meeting in person. I had visa stamps, my hotel receipts, emails organizing that I would take classes at the school where my fiancé works, and an affidavit from a teacher at the school which said he had met us and we were a lovely couple, but he never directly said he had seen us in person together on a specific date, so they wanted proof of that. And apparently you have to send in a copy of the affidavit-writer's ID in order for it to count, and we hadn't done that. So we got 2 new affidavits with ID, a letter from me and one from my fiancé describing how we met, and my fiancé found a selfie he took that I'm in the background of.

Hi, Did you receive your interview date this month?
Green_rabbit on 2020-02-14 said:
It's a K1 so we made the appointment ourselves, but I think it was on Jan 29 that the payment was approved on the website and the calendar opened for us.

*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.
