Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 12, 2008
Embassy Review : My So said the Interview only lasted 3 mins. He arrived at 0730 and waited almost 4 hours before he Interviewed. However, once he was called it was very quick. The Co was very nice he said. Just asked a few questions..then told him congratulations...enjoy life in USA...and have happy marriage always
He was fingerprinted and paid the DHL fee. All within 3 Mins. He was so Happy and relieved when he called me at 1030. Way to go Cairo Consulate for making my SO feel comfortable and relaxed. Of course for approving visa too.
Rating : Very Good

*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
