Comments : Washington DC Dulles Airport was easy for port of entry and fast for Immigration Inspector to check yellow folder I had from Consulate with Visa then he just took pic of me and tried the finger print but it seams that he found that already in my system file,asked me three qst when Im planing to get married my fiance? How long my brother knows my fiance ? and how we met that was the first qst sure after welcome home sir how are u doing ? it was an Asian looking Inspector so nice and professional one. I had just 2hrs to catch the next flight so I was close to miss it but Hamdo Allah we flow later then scheduled time by like an hr and I was running the whole long hall to D2 hhhh the customs heck point was full of non Citizen tourists my luggage was checked in Washington DC and they put a note after they done their job correctly and put everything back like it was never touched.they opened just one.
it was a very nice experience since Casablanca,keep in ur mind u have the visa u deserve to join ur fiance or wife just be calm and always get to the departure gate once u arrived from first place at least u will have one stop for me had two one in Frankfort and one in Washington DC then Final destination was DFW.
Good luck to everybody

Consulate Review: Morocco
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 22, 2011
Embassy Review : Salam Alikom wwb to All VJ Family,
First before to start this review Note for all my Experience in Consulate of US in Casablanca,Morocco.I would like to say sorry for this long delay before to write all these,I was first busy then stressed waiting for news from Consulate.
Alright first I was good prepared for 'already' all Information about my fiancée and her family close members. Then all evidences I brought with me were good organized like advised from many members from MENA specially dealing with Casablanca Consulate one of the most high fraud country "sure in US Consulate Staff eyes".
My Interview was in April 4th 2011 at 9am,I arrived there in just 5mins earlier and passed by the first security check point outside of Consulate building they asked to see just my passport to verify if my name exist in list of that day Interviews, for a detail my fiancee was in country during my Interview waited for me outside which was a good support to have and evidence that we are really serious in all these processes since the beginning until the end.
Then walked to Consulate first window outside where Moroccan Man asked me for all paperwork "Interview Letter,Forms,2 Pictures, Affidavit of Support I-134 plus supported Documents, income tax 2010,Letter of Employer” checked everything was filled correctly. then I got in the Consulate passed by second security check point for steel stuffs. anyway once I got in the waiting place I found the case where they told me in last Security check point to present to the cashier just the Interview letter and pay the MONEY “3010 Dhs” and took a set just first in front of the Interview windows that’s how I was hearing everything happening for all tourist visas which the blond nice lady took them and approved like 99% of them so I was watching the Tv and asking Allah to be interviewed from this nice CO,so after like an hour almost they called my name to pass by the window 7 “the only one that is separated in a room close to the TV in the bottom of the place” Moroccan lady asked me few simple qsts :
- first asked to get my cell #.
- Where I would like to marry my fiancé. America
- If I traveled before in oversea. Never
- Which language I would like my Interview to be in. English
** Then she told me to go take a set and wait for my name to be called again.
During she was gathering the whole file since USCIS until last forms and paperwork I gave then in first window outside of the building.
After like another hour and half finally they called my name “they took all tourists Visa after the room was full for like 30persons I found myself just alone with anther VJ member applying for K1” it was a very stressful moments to see all Approved Tourists visa and maybe one or too of K1 or CR1.I felt so nervous and thirsty by the end of waiting time
The Interviewer was a young blond CO who asked me first.
- How I know my fiancé ?
- When I started talking to her?
- How my brother introduced us to each other?
- How long my brother worked with my fiancé in the same place?
- Where my Fiancé is working? For how long ? where she was working before? What that company activity?
- How many sister does have? Where they are living ? if anyone of then is married?
- Where my fiancé’s parents are living ? what they are doing for living?
- Her brother where he is living and what he is doing in life?
- How my brother traveled first time to US? When ? maybe she introduced my fiancé to me first time just to find me a way to get to the US?
- How my sister arrived to travel to US ? he know about her before I told him that her Lottery visa was denied ? why ?
- --- During the Interview the CO was watching the Album of pictures back and for like three times. it was the only evidence he got from me .However I brought with me everything Calls logs,emails history, chatting history, cards, letters.
- Asked me about the persons in the picture of my mother,my fiance’s Mom and grandmother with some of her sisters ‘because she traveled to US to visit my brother and my fiancé’s family.he liked so much when I told me Mom was there to visit my fiance’s family.
- How many brothers and sisters that my Fiance has? Where they are living?
- One of them asked about her son’s father where he is now ?
- Last qst where is my fiancé in now?
By the end he gave me my passport back and took a paper from his desk and selected last option to tell me that my visa is approved but they will still need to make some Administrative Processing and call me once they are done.
Walked outside the building with a feeling of glory because really it was so hard to wait for all this long time and see all people leaving with a positive decision to come back in couple days to pick up their visa.
They didn’t call me until now.
Rating : Very Poor

*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.
