Consulate Review: Argentina
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 30, 2022
Embassy Review : We arrived to the appointment an hour earlier and signed in with the staff at the embassy. They were actually happy we were there early. Inside the embassy I sat in a waiting room and was the first person in line. I was asked for my passport and some of the documents listed in the emailed instructions (three days earlier I went to the embassy and left a packet with all of the required documents needed for my interview, I still brought another copy with all of the documents with me to the interview). She asked for my birth entry (I printed the digital copy), she made sure I had the form I-134 and the interview confirmation and asked my fiancés full name before getting my fingerprints. This was an initial step and she was only interested in making sure I had everything I needed for the interview.

I had to wait again for 10-15 minutes for the interview with the consul. When I was called, I went to a small room where a woman was waiting for me with a big folder with a lot of my documents, etc. She asked if I preferred speaking in English or Spanish and then we had a pretty casual conversation where she asked:

- Full name of fiancé
- Address, and if this was where we would live when I moved to the US
- How did we meet
- How many times did my fiancé visited Argentina
- How many times did I visit my fiance in the US
- If I’ve met my fiancé’s family and he met my family
- She asked about my career, if I wanted to work in the US and if I had previously worked in the US before

After this she said my visa was approved and that I would receive an email with the confirmation (the system was down for the day and they couldn’t give me a written confirmation). They kept my passport which I will get back with my visa in the next days.
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
