You will have to go through 4 checks before the actual interview. 2 Security checks first then 2 to check papers. Everybody was nice.

Event Description
Review Date : May 13, 2022
Embassy Review : After security and a booth to check papers we were sent upstairs for the interview. We got called about 10min after the time of the appointment. After taking the oath, she asked all identification papers I could have then if we had any new documents to give, so we gave the update papers for affidavit (not requested but we brought the 2022 W2 and paystubs we had). We showed his insurance papers and bank statement with my name on it, and the internet bill that I pay, and an album with new photos.
We went through the yes/no questions from the form. She asked my full name, birthday, address, his birthday, where do we work and when did we meet. Asked if we had any questions.
She was very nice.
Then she said all looked good but she didn't give any decision.
I received an email the day after, stating an action has been taken on my case and about 8h after the email, it showed approved on the website.
Good luck to everyone!
Harassment Level : Good

Hi :) First, congrats on your approval!! I’m applying for my k1 visa from Portugal, so my interview is going to be in Paris. I would like to ask you if you were part of a lawsuit to schedule your interview. Thanks so much and good luck with your next steps :)

*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
