Consulate Review: Sydney, Australia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 3, 2009
Embassy Review : Friendly staff members at the embassy, always be prepared for any questions and you'll be right. Particularly questions that may not relate to you but could come up to test you. I was nervous as hell, but a good look out the window with the sights helped that, even a guy from WA was there lol. all in all a good experience.
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
