Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Vancouver, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 25, 2009
Embassy Review : Got there in by one, and was one of three people to be interviewed. I was last. Handed in forms, did fingerprints, then was called up to the window. Spoke with the woman, Hong, and she was very nice. Asked basic questions, hardly looked at proof of relationship. We were worried about the finance part, but we have enough assets that it satisfied her. Visa was approved. She also smiled and laughed with me.
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
