Consulate Review: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 14, 2007
Embassy Review : We arrived the day before our interview on the 4th of Dec. We made sure that we had the correct fee from Citibank and check our list from Visa Journey twice. We went the day of the interview at 7am, and asked the guards which line we needed to be in, they were very helpful. When the admitted the K1's at around 8am we went upstairs and were the 4th people to have our visa papers checked for order and the first not to have to correct this. The order stated on the embassy page here is perfect. They took our papers and we waited for about another hour while all of the papers were imputed. We were the second interview called, it was very easy. Sandra and I were able to go together and the interviewer only asked us a few questions. How did we meet, how many brothers Sandra has and what hobbies I have. I think she was happy as well that I have learned Portuguese. 5 minutes later we were approved. The interview was on a Tuesday and we had the visa by that Friday. All I can say is that if you follow the guide for the embassy here you will have no problem. Another woman behind us was going for her interview after us and they had an attorney to the work for them. She was told that she did not have all of the papers required so make sure you check that list twice.

*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
