Consulate Review: Tokyo, Japan
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 31, 2020
Embassy Review : I was extremely nervous for my emergency interview.
The person who collected my documents and the officer who took my fingerprints were nice. One of them even greeted me in Portuguese (my native language) which was nice.
The interviewer officer was okay, she asked very simple questions such as:
Have you lived in any other countries?
How did you meet?
How was the proposal?
Have you ever been to the US?
What is the reason for your emergency interview?
Then she said she was giving my passport back because they "couldn't issue K visas". I was very confused. She said I would have to mail my passport when they started resuming services. I tried asking more questions but all she kept saying was that they just couldn't.
I always knew I would be very nervous and it wasn't going to be a pleasant experience but that day was terrible. I was so upset when I left I could barely explain what had just happened to my fiancé on the phone.

Rating : Poor


POE Review: Los Angeles
Event Description
Entry Date : 2020-08-29
Embassy Review : I did not have to wait at all in line. At first the officer didn't seem so nice. But as he was opening my package he asked simple questions like
where I was coming from, why did I live in Japan, how long I lived there for, if I spoke Japanese, if I had seen the 90 day fiancé show, how I met my fiancé, and others I can't really remember.
Just basic questions, it felt more like just chatting. He showed me the K1 expiration date, and that I had to be married by then. Talked about AOS, just some friendly reminders.
Customs did not check any of my 4 bags, except to take an apple that I forgot to eat on the plane. Yet the person who took it was really nice and kept making conversation.
It was way more relaxed then I thought it would be!
Harassment Level : Low

emergency but they said they can't process K visas now, so very confusing.

*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
