Consulate Review: Sydney, Australia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 9, 2022
Embassy Review : I had a great experience. It didn't make up for a year's delay due to relocating the consulate from Martin Place to Nth Sydney but the whole process was smooth and I was in and out in 45 min. The interview itself was barely 3-5 min.

Go in for security, gave them my phone and car keys (I drove and parked at Greenwood Plaza directly opposite so I could leave everything else in the car). Went up in the lift to lvl 5 and stood in line to hand over my docs. First lady asked for original and copies of civil docs, most recent taxes, I-134 and medical. Then I did my fingerprints and got given a number to sit and wait for my interview. It was quite informal and we all sat on huge benches at the windows and chatted to each other.

Got called up around 20 min later, the interviewer was really lovely and asked a few Q's: how did you meet, last time you met, who is the petitioner, what does he do for a living, and that was it. I was told I was approved, luckily had all my docs in order and so no yellow slip to send in anything else. CEAC status changed to AP that afternoon and 'issued' by lunchtime the next day.

I got an email from VFS which is now handling the passport dispatch instead of the consulate the day after it changed to issued and passport/visa is in hand today! (4 days after emailing VFS with my nominated mailing address).

Hi, newbie here. I read on one of the groups that you had trouble receiving your NoA in time, with delays - much like me. We filed in Jan 2021. I also saw you said your NoA1 was backdated? I'm really confused between received date and notice date and how you know which one to use? Also, how maybe you know it is backdated, after all? Thanks, clearly a bit too angsty, here!

*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
