Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 20, 2010
Embassy Review : Interview appointment was at 8:30am, so I arrived at around 8:10. There was a small queue, mostly students. Finally got inside just before 9am after going through security and getting a number. About an hour and a half later I finally get called to the interview window. Hand over my affidavit of supports, passport and birth/police certificate then was told to fill out this pink courier slip and wait again for my number to be called. Another hour later I went back to another window when another gentleman saw me. After asking me when we got engaged and explaining to him how many times we had seen each other he asked me to write her full name on this form then sign it. After that he told me that he had already gone through our packet and everything looked perfect... approved! Told me to pay the courier fee and the visa + passport should be back with me in 3-5 days.

Just a word of caution, Bring something to read/do with you or you will be bored out of your minds like I was!!! Also take some water or something.. coulden't see a vending machine in there like others have said.

*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
