Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 13, 2010
Embassy Review : I arrived at the MLC centre at 7.15am for my 8.00am appointment, jumping out of my skin and hanging to get in there and get through this D-Day! We all went through security and took a seat. There were 5 or 6 rows of seats, and after 10 mins or so the front row of people were called through to the interview area and grabbed a ticket and waited to be called up. I was waiting around seven minutes before i was called up to hand in my Visa fee receipt, passport and pre-paid satchel. I was asked to sit down again and a few more mins later was called up to sign a few things, she said that everything seems to be fine and to sit down again and a consular officer will call me up for the interview.
Only took a few more minutes and the lady asked me a few really basic questions, such us what does my partner do? Where does she live? Did she go to college? When are you getting married? Before she even asked me anything i could see my file sitting in front of her with a big 'APPROVED' stamped on it She said it's all fine and that was it. I asked her..."That's it?" and she smiled and said "Yes" and then gave me some details about what happens next.... the interview was always stressful to think about, but in reality it was extremely basic. I saw a few other people not have certain information they needed, and get delayed..... so make sure you have EVERYTHING at the interview that is asked for. I wasn't asked for any evidence, or anything beyond what was asked for...but of course have your ongoing evidence handy just in-case they do want to see something. So simply...if you are prepared and have everything they have asked for, you really should have no problems!
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
