Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 24, 2009
Embassy Review : We got there about 8:55 for our 9:00 appointment. We went right up to the front of the line the woman checked out paper work and put it in order and in we went through the metal detectors. When we were in the courtyard there is another woman who gives you the yellow piece of paper that you write your passport number on for DHL.

We go in check in and get out number A151 so we go into section A and it is crowded we go and stand along the wall with the counter and just check out what is going on for a while. Finally our number is called and we go to window 6. The lady takes all our paperwork and tells me that I am very organized and I responded well I have been waiting for this day for along time. We go and sit back down and wait for our interview.

We get called up around noon to window 8. He pretty much approved everyone if they had all their paperwork there, those that didn't he gave a blue slip too. I think there were only 2 or 3 fiance visa's in that section that day the rest were family based visa's.

So we go up and he asks for our passports and then goes around the corner to look at them. Thought that was a bit strange. He comes back and tells us raise our right hands and says do you swear to tell the truth and then the questions start:

When we met?
Where we met?
How many times have I been to Jamaica?
Have I seen him on every trip?
When did you start dating?
When did you get engaged?

I answered all those questions.

He then asks Conmar to go sit at the back of the room and for me to pick up the phone.
I pick up the phone and then the questions just start pouring in:
When did I get there?
Where did we stay the night before?
Was it just the two of us there?
When am I going back home?
Have I met anyone in his family?
What are their names?
Has he met anyone in my family?
What is her name?
When was I divorced?
Do I live with anyone?
Does he live alone?
Do I live in a house or an apartment?
Do we talk about what I do at my job?
How often do we talk?
What do you guys talk about?
Where does his son live?
Who does his son live with?
Who is he closest to in his family?
Does he know my daughter's Dad?
Is my daughter's Dad involved in her life?

Then he tells me to send Conmar up and for him to pick up the phone.

He asked him:
Have you met anyone in her family?
Have you met her daughter's Dad?
Who are you closest to in your family?

And that was about it for him…he said congratulations take this to DHL for them to arrange for your passport to be delivered to you.

We were both so excited and I don’t think that the smile has left our faces yet.

*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
