Consulate Review: Frankfurt, Germany
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 5, 2008
Embassy Review : A very nice experience! It's all about having your documents and papers ready...make sure you have all which is required (police certs,birth cert,etc...).

The actual interview with the Consul was a very brief:
-"So how did you meet your fiance?"
-" We work for the same airline!"
-"Oh, ok...now the fingerprints,please!Thanks.You'll get your visa in about a week!"

That was it!

I spent the night before the interview at the Hotel Alleenhof, the rate was EUR 60.- including breakfast. The walk to the embassy takes about 15 minutes.It is no problem to leave luggage at the reception and to pick it up after the interview.

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be!

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
