Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 1, 2008
Embassy Review : Barry arrived early for his 8:30 interview. Very few in line so he went to Starbucks for coffee. He returned to the line and proceeded quickly through security. He left all electronics at his Mum's, even keys. After his entry he was informed that his interview was supposed to be rescheduled for July 10th, but after a quick check since he didn't receive a call, all was well and he sat down. He said there were only about 8 for immigrant visas, so he was called quickly. They only asked for police certificate, birth certificate, passport photos, and I-134. They asked for letter from my employer and pay stubs, which they returned...that's it...no other documents or evidence requested. He was fingerprinted and paid for visa and courier.

He was quickly called to interview and was asked...how did we meet? He said poetry site. Was asked...who his favorite poet is. Then he was asked if he has been to US...he replied yes several times....has your fiancee been to England? Yes she just left last week...chuckles from interviewer...Who do you plan on living with?...my fiancee...what kind of work do you plan?....I have several options....I notice your Malaysia stamp on your passport...was it a holiday?...no I practice tai chi and my master lives there....I was visiting him....He was reminded not to open the brown envelope...turn it in at POE and reminded we have 90 days to marry. He was informed his visa should arrive within 3-5 days.

Barry called me from his Mum's at 9:45....very quick and easy according to him....
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
