Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 19, 2008
Embassy Review : Well, after a couple of visits to the Embassy in previous years for J1 visas, i knew where the place was and what to expect...just about! My interview was at 830am and the lines outside were so small that i only waited outside for about 40 minutes (on both previous occassions i had to wait 2 hours, before i even got inside!). So then got in and took a seat whilst trying not to fall asleep after only 2 hours sleep the night before. Had the pre-interview paper collection then the interview with a nice american guy who was training a new girl i guessed. Got through the standard questions like where did u meet, why america and not UK, and that was that, went to pay the courier and went on my way home!
Absolutley no need to be nervous but, of course, being human nervous is a very natural feeling!
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
