Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 18, 2010
Embassy Review : We arrived at the consulate a little early for our 9:00 a.m. appointment on January 13, 2010. We provided our interview letter,4 passport photos, and both copies of 156,156k, and the 157 to a lady out front before we were allowed in through security screening. The lady pointed out some things that we missed that needed to be filled in on the forms. Please have a pen!! We went through security and then filled out the missing info on the forms that were circled. We checked in and was given number A136. We were told to go into the right of the building to have a seat. We waited for what seemed like forever before we heard our number being called. We went up to window 5 and was asked to provide interview letter,4 passport photos, and both copies of 156,156k, and the 157. We were also asked for non-impediment record, police certification, and the I-134, with my 2008 W-2 and tax transcript. We were told to go to get my fiance's fingerprints and then come back and have a seat and wait for our number to be called again. We sat down and was just trying to stay positive and focused. We saw a variety of people that received blue slips for things such as needing medical exams completed or more proof or newer birth certificates. Finally our number was called up and we both went up to a guy that was giving out mainly blue slips all morning.
So we both are asked to raise our right hands. We did. Then I was asked to go and sit down while my fiance was asked to pick up the telephone.

He asked him the following questions:

1. Where did we meet?
2. When do we met?
3. When did we start dating?
4. How do we mainly communicate?
5. How often do I visit?
6. How often do we talk?
7. Do I ever send him money Western Union and if we had any receipts?
8. He asked if he had ever been to the U.S?

He then asked if we had any photos? I jumped up cause I still had our purple folder with everything organized and prepared. I walked up and was like here baby. I didn't go back and sit down at this point. The interviewer looked at the complete photo album. He then asked if we had any cell phone records, which we had a few months worth. (We both had changed cell phone numbers through the course of our relationship and we explained that as well). I then provided a few of our many e-mails. Then the interviewer asked for my passport which I provided. He was looking at something on the screen. I then asked if he needed copies of my boarding passes, he replied no. He stated that the Visa was being issued and to please go to the DHL counter to schedule pick-up. We thanked the interviewer and went to DHL to schedule pick up of Visa.
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
