Consulate Review: Vancouver, Canada
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : August 19, 2010
Embassy Review : Hey Everyone,

I can't believe its my turn to type a review! I had my k1 interview at the Vancouver consulate. Got there 15 mins prior to the interview. Once there, they called my name after ten mins. Please make sure you have all your documents organized. I used a portfolio and labelled everything with post it tabs. So it was very easy to find.
I submitted the following forms.

- Letters of intent
- DS-230
- Passport + copy of info page
- $350US ( CASH and exact change
- 2 passport photos with name on back
- 2 copies DS-160
- 2 copies DS-156K
- Original long form birth certificate + copy
- My police certificates + copies
- Affadavit of Support + supporting docs (W2 from my fiance, letter from fiance employer,pay stubs)
- My medical results
-Xpresspost envelope

Then I got my fingerprints done. After 40 mins, I was called for the interview part. The interviewer was VERY NICE and friendly.He asked me where we met, asked about my current job and asked a few questions about how often we saw each other. Confirmed a few things about my fiance current job. Looked at additional pictures that I had brought with me. Then he said you are approved!!!! :dance: He went through the restrictions of the visa and it would take two days to process.

Everyone at the Vancouver office was very friendly and they are very organized. :thumbs:

***no need to bring your xray.
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
