Consulate Review: Ankara, Turkey
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 16, 2009
Embassy Review :
Well, on the day interview which was early in the morning we went to the Embassy with my fiancée, I showed my passport to the guard and he let both of us in very fast, after security we got a number and sat for 4 hours until they called our number.

Both of us went to the window, the CO asked me if I the petitioner, which I said “yes” he said, thank you for coming but please have a seat!!!

He asked my fiancée:

When is the last time you saw him?

What is his favorite food?

How long you know him?

What does he do? (Work)


What do you do? Is it a Gov. job in Iran? (She said no – the truth)

What did you study in Iran?

CO had a copy of our engagement album and he went through it with her and asked about photos, that who is this, who is that!!! And then he said, nice place!!! Then he gave back all our photos, emails, bank statements, Tax
returns.

Then he said, I have approved your application, you will receive your passport and visa in the mail within 3-5 days, I recommend you stay in Ankara and check the UPS website to track it.

We both left the embassy very happyyyyyyyy, in the afternoon we checked the UPS website and we saw that they mailed the passport so we continued celebrating.

The next day UPS showed up at 3pm and gave us the passport with NO VISA but a blue paper for Administrative processing. we were devastated

I went to the Embassy the next day, the guard wouldn’t let me because it was Friday and they said I don’t have an appointment, after arguing with him for few min. that I’m a USC and I have to see the CO regarding my fiancée’s visa, he started making phone calls and then he let me in and immediately CO called me to the window and told me that there is Administrative processing on her file which we didn’t know about it and we found out as soon as we started printing the visa, this may take about 2 weeks, 2 months or longer, please check the website!!!!

The next day, I flown back to US and she went to Iran, Couple of days later after weekend I checked the website and she was cleared!!!!!!!

After couple of months, she went there and picked up her visa, no question asked.
Rating : Moderate

*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
