Consulate Review: Moscow, Russia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 7, 2008
Embassy Review : Arrived at 7.30 am, a crowd in front of the gates, under the rain....but didnt wait for a long time, plus most of the people waited for other types of visa....

I waited for may be half an hour till i was called. Mmmm, cant say the CO was super friendly but well, may be he had a head ache that morning...We spoke in Russian even after he discovered i spoke english. He only asked me
where and how i and my fiance met, how long we lived together, where he works and where i studied. Then he said that my visa could be approved BUT i needed a police certificate from israel, where i spent 6 months. My heart sank and I told him that according to the information that i found, i didnt need it cuz i didnt spend there more than a year...the CO wasnt convinced but checked smth in the computer and said Ok, u dont need it !!!!! OUFFFFF

so, besides this little incident, it was very easy! 5 minutes really!

*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
