Consulate Review: Peru
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 13, 2009
Embassy Review : The waiting was long, but everybody was very nice.
The normal questions, where and when did we meet, when and where did he propose, when and why I had previously been in the US ... if you don't remember, say so, I have been in the US many times, so it was not important to remember the dates and time spent in every trip ...
One recommendation is that you should bring all the pictures that you attached with your I-129 because in my case, they weren't in our case file ... they even asked me why we hadn't attached any pictures! I told them we had attached about 50 pictures and I listed all the places we had been together ... I guess they believed me because they gave me the visa.
During the interview, they were very nice and efficient.
Rating : 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
