Consulate Review: Croatia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 18, 2010
Embassy Review : Only compliments to Consulate in Zagreb. My interview was scheduled for 10:00AM and I came 20 min. earlier, gave my fingerprints and then wait for the interview.
I heard my name and went in the front of the first window where the Consul was. We started to talk on Croatian and he asked me if we can talk on English and I confirmed. We talked on English till the end of the interview. The consul was very polite and cozy and we talked about 30 min. He asked me where and when I met my fiance, how old is he, what is his job, did I visit him in the US, did I see his family...he didn't ask me for any evidence of our relationship and at the end he wished me a nice life with my future husband and said: Welcome to the US! I was so happy and rushed to call my fiance to let him know that I passed the interview and I will get my visa for a few days.
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Washington DC
Event Description
Entry Date : 2010-04-29
Embassy Review : The customs officer was so rude and provocative and I was astonished because I heard only compliments about this POE.
He started with the tricky questions about K1 and he was so arrogant. Our flight was long and I was tired, just hoping that he will check my papers and let me go. Thanks to my husband I survived this torture. I tried to be patient and polite and hardly waiting to finish with all of that and go home.
He also checked my I-94 and gave some comments...what to tell...I had a bad experience.

*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
