Consulate Review: Ankara, Turkey
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 11, 2023
Embassy Review : I accompanied my fiancé to his interview. Although I was not allowed in, I was able to wait outside the building. His appointment was at 7:45AM and he entered the building around 8:00AM. His interview was complete and he exited around 9:15AM. No bags, phones, electrical devices of any kind were allowed in with him. I held onto all of his stuff. He just carried his required documents. He told me they were very friendly inside. He used a translator (he chose to do his interview in Turkish). Both the officer and the translator asked him questions. Some questions asked were:
When did we meet?
How long were we together?
Have either of us been married before?
Where are we going to Marry and when?
They also asked him about his time he spent in Spain and also about a person he named on a prior DS160 from a few years ago.

At the end they told him he was approved and a few hours later it showed approved on the website. Overall was a good experience.
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
