Comments : It took me about 30 minutes to get to the CBP officer, as the line was a little bit long and there was only 2 officers working at the moment.
When I got to him, I handled my passport and my package, and while he opened it we were chatting about random things and he was extremely nice!
He took a picture of me and asked for the address where i am staying. Then he handed me my passport with the stamp and said welcome to the US! I would say that all the interaction we had took around 5 minutes.

Consulate Review: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 30, 2023
Embassy Review : My experience at Rio Consulate was really good. My interview was schedule for 7:20 am I got there around 6:40 am. When it was 7 am, some employees came out and started organizing the huge line of people waiting outside. I stopped one of them and said I had an interview for K1 Visa, he scanned my passport, wrote something on the ASC sticker, put a green plastic inside of my passport and told me to go inside.

After going through the security, a security guard saw the green thing inside my passport and told me go to the second floor. When I got there, another employee gave me a sheet containing the order that they wanted the documents and told me to organize it. After couple of minutes he called me back and checked everything. He told me to sit on the chairs right in front of the interview windows. After a while I was called to go in the first window, where another employee recheck all the documents and ask a few questions. When she was done, she handed me a sheet that talks about the legal rights for victims of domestic violence and told me to wait for the interview. As soon as I left the first booth, the consular office called me in another window, collected my fingerprints,the asked me to take the oath and the interview started, in portuguese.

1. Who is sponsoring your visa?
2. Have you both had any previous marriages?
3.How did you meet?
4. Has he already come to Brazil?
Visa approved.

He handed me a flyer containing informations on how to track the visa and my original birth certificate.

I left the consulate exactly 1 hour after I went in.
Every employee I talked to was very polite.
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
