Event Description
Review Date : May 25, 2021
Embassy Review : Interview was 10:45am , medical was done same day in the morning . The medical was a smooth process took about 90 minutes , the employees at andrews were very pleasant and friendly. I lost my vaccination card so I had to get 4 vaccines that cost in total about 15k


There were about 4 persons in the line outside but they were J1 applicants I was the only k1 . After the young lady check that I had the appropriate documents I was sent to the security that check temperature, then I was sent inside to the security screening . After that I proceeded to the courtyard which was empty . I went straight to the desk where another lady checked my documents then placed a number on it . She took me inside to the immigrant section , there was only one lady there and she started her interview as soon as I got inside . I was called up to the first window she verified my address name etc .. she also collected the documents I brought . She was so nice as well and told me I could sit and wait for the interviewer I was the only person seated in that section for immigrant cases .

Waited for about 10 mins I saw the interviewer going through my documents and checking stuff on the computer . She then called me up and I took the oath .

Questions in no particular order that I can remember

1. Where does my fiancé live
2. How long we’ve been together ( she answered herself because she read through the packet , I just confirmed when she said it )
3. She asked where does my fiancé family reside
4. She ask where I plan to get married
5. Ask if we had kids
6 if we’ve ever been married
7. Ask if we plan on having family at the wedding
8. Ask when was the last time we saw each other

The questions felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. She was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. She said the medical would take about 2 weeks then 2-3 weeks for the embassy to process it .
1 week later I saw issued 😊 took about a week to get back my passport . But the whole process was pleasant.
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
