Consulate Review: Chile
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 30, 2010
Embassy Review : The interview was scheduled for August 4th at 13:30, I arrived 45 minutes early. There were other people waiting outside. Security guards let us in at 13:30. I was lucky number 3. They called me around 2:00 pm; the receptionist requested me (in Spanish) the documents she needed. I gave her my birth certificate, criminal records certificate (with their respective translations), I-134 form (along with the backup documents), passport, Chilexpress visa fee receipt and DS-230 part II, (although she didn’t ask for it, I gave it to her anyway). She asked me to sign form DS-156K (sworn part). Only question she asked about our relationship was my fiancé’s birthday. She asked me to go back to my seat and wait for the consular officer who was going to ask me some more questions. They called me again around 3:00 pm and the consular officer asked me if I spoke English; after my affirmative answer I had my fingerprints taken and she went through the documents. She didn’t ask for any more papers or evidence of our relationship, but did ask how we met each other, what he does for a living, where he lives, among other simple questions. My fiancé sent evidence about our relationship, like photos, when we filed I-129 form, so she looked through them and asked me where we went or where we were in the pictures. After that, she said: “ok, everything seems to be in order, go to DHL stand, take this ticket with you and gave it to the agent. The process may take 3 weeks, so don’t make plans until you receive your visa along with your passport… and congratulations!” I received my visa 4 days later! Last thing I would like to say is that every single person at the American Embassy was polite and cordial.
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
