Consulate Review: South Africa
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 5, 2020
Embassy Review : We arrived at our appointment 15 min before. From the get go everyone was friendly and very helpful. We all received a number. They started exactly on time. They called us one by one, first you go to the application counter where they take all the required documents. The lady made small talk with me while she was taking my paperwork. But enough smalltalk to also be questions about Our relationship. I handed her every document she asked for and she laughed she said when she saw my folder she knew I was prepared and that everything will be in order. She told me to go sit and wait for the next person to call me.

About 10 min later I was called and he made me take an oath and my daughter also wanted to and he giggled. He told me she can go play while we’re busy. He went through my docs and checked and stamped it all. He then asked me my first question - what does my fiancé do for a living? And where is she working?
He then asked me do I understand my rights in the US and that any form of abuse is a crime and should be reported.

He then smiled and said your visas has been approved. Welcome to the United States of America. Congratulations. We will have your passport and visa ready in 7-10 working days. I said thanks and we walked out after about a hour and a half. We were about 16 people. But not all K1 as they do CR1 and all other permanent immigrant visas also.

Wow! Looks like your whole process has gone very smooth and quickly! Congratulations. So happy for you! We received our NOA1 on 9/23/19, then received a request for additional information end of January 2020. We were asked to provide proof of our intentions to marry once in the U.S. The USCIS received our reply for more info on March 3, 2020. I sure hope we get a positive answer soon. Any advice you could give at this point in your journey? Thank you!

*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
