Consulate Review: Bucharest, Romania
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 25, 2010
Embassy Review : Ok, 3 hours wait (1-4pm)
officials were very nice always!
Fisrt to arrive, last to leave, being early does not help!
Biometrics (fingerprints) --have clean fingers. One person was rescheduled because they had a wound on their finger (a small wound).

Engagement ring was looked at.
How did you meet? Where exactly did you meet? When did you meet in person? How long did you meet with fiance last time you meet?
Does fiance want to have children? When do you want to have children?
Does fiance work or go to school?Where do they work or go to school?
Do they have brothers/sisters? Does fiance parents know about the marriage?
Do your parents know about the marriage? Has fiance met you parents/ siblings? Have you met fiance's parents/siblings?
Does fiance own a house? Does the bank own the house or fiance owns the house? (I had submitted house documents for I-134)

This is all I can remember right now. Seems like easy questions to fill the time (5 minutes) If you really have a relationship, this interview is easy.

One girl being interviewed (not us) was asked how many times she had sex with her fiance. This is shocking, I know, but it happened.

It seems they do a lot of checking. I am in my 3rd career (back in school again for 2nd degree) and they knew to ask about school.
They checked...

So, just be honest and take lots of evidence-- they are very nice in Bucharest, dont worry! Oh and stay at Hotel Intercontinental. Its 50 meters from the embassy. And Bio-Medica was only $70 USD for medical. Hope this helps some Romanians to be together!

I'm rating them a 5 because they were lenient and granted the visa without intimidation or pressure.
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
