Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 28, 2010
Embassy Review : I travelled to London early, dropped all my electronics at goulds pharmacy which cost me £5. Also be aware you need 2 American sized passport photos, which can also be done at goulds.

My interview was for 9:30 am... I arrived at 8, and trust me brace yourself for wait. Well after 20 minutes of waiting and getting checked over, I finally went into the embassy. Handed them my letter and was given a number....

3 hours later....

I was asked to go to window 13, he took my fiancées W2 and proof of support. My criminal record check, my Birth certificate and he asked me to pay the fee then give him the receipt. He then gave me a pink paper to fill in then asked me to take a seat.

30 minutes later....

I was called to window 15, had my finger prints taken and was asked questions about how I met my fiancée and when we planned to marry... What state he lived in and how long he had lived there, what was the exact date we first started this process. Then she told me I was approved and she hopes I have a lovely wedding..

To be honest even though it was the longest wait of my life it was worth it, everyone was friendly and made me feel at ease..
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
