Consulate Review: Moscow, Russia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 15, 2010
Embassy Review : Svetlana arrived at the embassy at about 9:00 for the 10:00 am appointment. The interview went very smoothly and lasted only about 5 minutes tops. Actually the interview pretty much wrapped up when Svetlana handed over our pictures to the woman case officer at the embassy. The case officer just asked 2-3 questions when Svetlana offered our pictures. The woman case officer looked at the pics, gave a big smile, and said 'you're approved." I have read about interview encounters from others going back years...., and have heard about some bad experiences, but according to Svetlana, the woman case officer is one of the nicest and warmest people we can meet. I hope your experience is as good as ours.
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
