Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 28, 2010
Embassy Review : My fiance's interview was on 07-27-10 at 9:00 am. In short, it just took a lot of time for her to get to the first IO and then to the second IO but both of them were very polite. The interview lasted only a few minutes and was very conversational.

I believe as long as you have a genuine relationship, required documents & open to your partner/IO, you will not encounter any problems.

The only things my fiance was asked at the interview were:
(1) I-134
(2) Employment verification letter
(3) Pay stubs
(4) Her birth & police certificate
(5) They already had tons of boarding passes, hotel receipts, chat logs, emails, phone records that I sent with NOA1.

Overall, a very very positive 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
