Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 13, 2009
Embassy Review : My fiance's interview experience went rather quickly. His appointment was for 9:30. My Mother-in-law called me at 8:44 to tell me he was already inside (wow)He handed the paperwork in at the first window but forgot to give them the I-134. They told him that was okay and gave it to the interviewer.

When did you two meet?
When was the last visit?
What are the children's names?
Where did you get engaged?
Write her name and yours underneath.

Visa approved!

My Mother-in-law called me and said they needed me to come, then she quickly said "Mi a joke", Visa approved. My fiance called me and told me everything.
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Philadelphia
Event Description
Entry Date : 2009-11-03
Embassy Review : According to my finace, things went rather smoothly. It took them some time. I still can't imagine why because the plane he flew in on was relatively empty. He said the officer was very kind to him and ask when were we getting married. He told him Boxing Day, which is 12/26. The experience for him was rather painless.

*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
