Consulate Review: Ghana
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 25, 2011
Embassy Review : As nerve wrecking as the last 12 hours been I am happy to report that we were approved today, January 25, 2011. My fiance arrived at the embassy in Accra at 5:45am. I talk to him up until 1 hour before 7:30am when they let everyone in. My fiance said he was the 2nd to be attended to. They call him to a window where they took all the documents and his payment. Some of the papers they return to him. Probably my paystubs. He said they did not ask many questions. They asked him to write your fiance name on a sheet paper. then they asked, How did we met? She came to Ghana on vacation. Of all places, why did she choose Ghana for vacation? She came with a friend. How many times has she been to Ghana? 3 times. Where does she live? He gave city and state. Then he gave him a sheet up paper to pick up visa on Feb 3, 2011! I really cannot complain. My K1 journey has been smooth sailing.Petition got approved in less than 1 month and sent to Ghana within 2 months. The longest wait was 5 months waiting for the interview day. In total, Part 1 of this journey was 7 months. Now its time to prepare for his arrival, marriage and then the AOS! Good Luck Everyone! :-)

POE Review: Washington DC
Event Description
Entry Date : 2011-03-12
Embassy Review : POE process at Dulles International airport went smoothly for my fiance. The plane arrived 5:30am, before the schedule time of 6:11am. He told me they had to wait until 6am until the immigration officers began duty. He was asked How we met and when we would get married. They also asked what he had in his luggage? The whole process was less than 30 minutes after they deplane, because I arrived when the plane was to arrive and I did not wait more than 5 minutes when he came out pushing his 3 suitcases. :-)

*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.
