Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 19, 2010
Embassy Review : Our appointment was at Kingston embassy on May 7th for 9:30. Lucky we had my fiancee brother drive us there so he knew exactly where he was going. If you have cellphones, lotion, handsantizer they have eager local ready to hold your stuff for a fee. Ok there was a small line but the embassy came to us asked for the interviewee name. Then she ask who I was, I said his fiancee. she asked for his passport and the passport pics. she sticked them in the passport and said to right your name lightly in the back. We proceeded inside through security. then went through another set of doors to a shed. We saw a lot of people sitting outside and could not understand why, so we sat down. Then I said to my fancee I think we are doing something wrong duh!!! Well we was to follow the signs past the shed and enter thorugh heavy glass door and get our number. We got our number and enter nother room. our section was on our right for all A visa. We waited about a hour and half before our number was called mind they are not called in any order. we went to the window and the ladie asked for everything step for step as he received each document she checked of her checklist dsk156, ds156k and ds157 in duplicate, police record, impediment, i134 and supporting docs. last but not least sealed medical. we have everything YAY me!!! She them told proceed to window number 17 for fingerprints ok done. Then we went to sit down and wating for interrgoration. I told him dont be nervous. we was the last to be called she sweared us in and then told me to have a seat. He picked up the phone and asked him how and when we meet, If i have kids which i do have he every meet them, have he ever entered the US, what do I do for work, how many times have I been to JA, have i meet his family and who. Then he asked for pictures. Now I use shutterfly to print my pics and had a nice hard cover book made. so it could nt fit through the slot so she ask me to hold the book up and flip through the pics she smiles at the pics and said lovely book. The picture where not posed pics like me and his sisters getting ready to go dance me and him fooling around in the yard. ETC anyways in the endshe said APPROVED!!!! my advice be calm have everything and DONT fumble when they ask a question. One woman fumbled and the CO told her that her husband must come for a petitioner interview. JUST ALL BE CALM AND HAPPY ITWOULD BE A BLESSES DAY !!!!

*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
