Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 20, 2009
Embassy Review : Well my fiancee got to the USEM around 5am with a 7am appointment. She was the first one to be called in to be fingerprinted, prescreened and Interviewed. She was the first one into the USEM and the first one OUT! VERY SMOOTH and no delays.

Pre screener: was an older woman who looked like she could cut you down with words of spite. But actually, she very nice and cordial to my fiancee during the interview. She had asked very basic questions as typical to any other visa interview review. She ask my fiancee to tell about our love story. The prescreener collected the docs (it's important to ensure your docs dont have any discrepencies nor out of order) and went right to asking my fiancee the questions. She answered tactfully, respectfully, and cordially and she got right through with no hassle just being honest and straight foward.

Consul:My fiancee said she looked alot like the late Princess Diana and she was very professional and very nice. She asked basically the same questions, reviewed paperwork and the interview went very smoothly.

To conclude: Be very respectful and understanding to these folks. They deal with alot of applicants everyday and different kinds of people. It must be alot of pressure, and alot of tolerance to keep the true folks from coming in and being approved and from the frauds and the "bad news" from out of our country.
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
