Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 9, 2008
Embassy Review : wow!! visa approved. I'm just excited!!
My fiance got to the consulate at 6:00AM and by 7:35AM he already got his tag number(IV #).He made a payment of $131 for the visa fee and was interview by the lady in window 12. The interview went well.The duration was about 15-20 minutes. Below are the questions asked:
1. TELL ME ABOUT YOUR FIANCEE
2. HOW DID YOU MEET HER
3. WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT HER
4. WHAT DO YOU GUYS HAVE IN COMMON
5. HAVE YOU MET YOUR FIANCEE'S PARENTS
6. HOW MANY TIMES DID SHE VISIT YOU AND WHEN LAST DID SHE VISIT
7. WHEN AND HOW DID YOU PROPOSE TO HER
8. PLACES YOU VISITED WHEN SHE CAME TO NIGERIA
9. DID YOU HAD AN ENGAGEMENT PARTY.
10.PICTURES AND EMAILS

NOTE: She read through our emails and was particular about the dates before the filling and the content of our discussion. She didn't ask for all other documents like call history, bank statement, tax returns, tax transcripts/W2s, letters from employment, pay slips etc.

ADVICE: Don't include pictures you took at the studio. Make sure all pictures were "real-life" pictures at locations and not at a photo studio. Because my fiance took a lot of our studio photos which made her to ask more questions. So just save yourself the stress. Thank you...

*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
