Consulate Review: Tirana, Albania
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 7, 2023
Embassy Review : Consulate called a few days before the interview and requested my fiance to bring a notarized and translated name change form. We submitted this during the initial I129F, but we only submitted an updated and not translated form after receiving packet 3. The Tirana embassy website said we didn't need to get any civil documents translated into English that were officially issued by Albanian authorities. All this to say we were really grateful they gave us a heads up to bring in this form prior to the interview, avoiding a 221g.

The interview was very easy. She brought in proof of interview payment, updated relationship proof, receipts of judical records from the post, copy of NOA2, the email from the consulate (packet 4), the instructions page for the interview, a copy of the DS160 confirmation, and the requested name change form.

Consular asked how did we meet, how many times did we meet, when was the last time we saw each other, where did the petitioner work, what did the petitioner do for work, and questions about the beneficiaries time in other countries for more than 6 months (why where you there, what did you do).

*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
