Consulate Review: Bulgaria
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 2, 2010
Embassy Review : The Consular said she could see from our pictures and Christmas cards how much we love each other.After all the waiting and worrying they were extremly nice and asked me no more than a few questions like what's his name,work,how we met and if he knows my parents.When I told them they cried when we told them we're engaged she asked if I'm a single child :"It's 3 of us actually" I said and we laughed My advice-bring the best pictures you have-kissing,hugging and showing its true love.That's what they care about I think.And good luck
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
