Comments : In El Salvador we have two interviews, so the date is the second interview. We were delayed with the visa because they told us we can´t have a co-sponsor for the K1 visa and requested a letter of employment for the nonUSC fiance, which took us a week to get and submit, then they had to review it. So, those who don't go through this extra step may get the visa faster, after the second interview.

Consulate Review: El Salvador
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 8, 2008
Embassy Review : The embassy ranks well as far as responding to emails and mailing Packets 3 and 4 by email. As far as the interview, the first person my fiance talked with (the first interview) was EXTREMELY rude and seemed like she was looking down to him. When she reviewed his financial info (well, my financial info) she told him that the K1 visa can´t have a co-sponsor and that I don´t qualify to sponsor him because I have lived in El Salvador for 2 years and haven´t filed taxes (which is why we had a co-sponsor...). She kept opening her eyes really wide and saying ¨You CAN´T be a BURDEN to the STATE¨ and ¨We need PROOF that you´re going to WORK.¨ Even though he has worked him whole life and I have too and neither of us have ever had any troubles with the law or drugs. She told him he had to get an ORIGINAL letter fom an employer in the States saying that they were offering him a job, the position, number of hours per week, and salary. I have to run, but I´ll be back to finish this tomorrow...

*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
