Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 5, 2022
Embassy Review : The whole process ended up taking around 2.5-3 hours, of which about 6 minutes was the actual interview. Staff managing the queues were friendly and helpful, and kept us moving as best they could. Unfortunately, the upstairs windows seemed to be having some trouble and so I and others were stuck downstairs in the lobby for a long while awaiting the "okay" to send more people up.

Interview process itself was painless, first window checked my documents and took fingerprints. No fuss. Second window was the questions and again didn't take any more time than was necessary, officer was very friendly and was more than happy to clear up questions before sending me on my way with the immigration pack.

Hey, did you do anything after the NVC received your case? We received our approval 9th Dec and emailed the NVC yesterday. We had a reply they received it but it was in a queue to create a case file. When was the first time you heard from the NVC?

Hey sorry for the late reply! After we sent off our application it took about 2 weeks to get our case file created and us notified of our tracking number, we didn't contact them we just waited it out. Hope your case has progressed some!

*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
