Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 8, 2021
Embassy Review : The Embassy was really welcoming and nice, my appointment was at 11 am and I arrived around 10:15 am (they don't give you a waiting number until around 15 minutes until your interview so I waited in the reception area). I was out of there by 11:45 am. They have very clean bathrooms (once you complete and exit the airport-style security area turn left) in case you need to freshen up before your interview.

There were 2 rounds, first with a gentleman who I gave my interview confirmation email and passport + 2 US size passport pictures of me and originals of my birth certificate and police certificate. He then asked for the updated letters of intent with both of our signatures. Then he asks for the MRV fee proof of payment and Affidavit of Support (Form I-134) with supporting evidence (I handed over my fiance's letter of employment from his manager/boss and also his W2 and tax transcripts for the last 3 years). He asked a few questions like what's the best number to contact you and when I plan to travel + other simple questions. I sat back down in the waiting area for my second round.

My number got called again on-screen and this time it's a female, she made me take an oath and then proceeds with the questions. Below are the questions she asked me:

1. When did you first meet? (I asked for clarification and she said when was the first time you knew about each other's existence).
2. What are your wedding plans?
3. How many times has he visited?
4. Is your family happy with you moving to the USA?
5. What State does he live in?
6. Has he always lived there?

These questions will probably be very different and mixed when it's your interview as I'm sure there's a pool of questions they pick from so don't rely on them asking the same questions for you, too.

She then said that I have been approved (yay) and that my passport with the visa will arrive in 1-2 weeks (my interview was on a Tuesday and it arrived the following Tuesday). She also handed back the Affidavit of Support and supporting documents I provided and also the originals of my police and birth certificates. They kept the letters of intent.

Hope this helps as general guidance and good luck with your interviews!
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.
