Consulate Review: Ghana
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 5, 2010
Embassy Review : It went pretty well. I wish we would have known though that we had to get criminal background checks done before Timothy(my fiance) left Europe and went back to Africa. We didn't find out until he got his packet in Accra. Because of that we were delayed because we had to try to get them from Accra. It proved to be quite difficult with the post being so slow and people not being honest with us. Luckily, we got them in the nick of time and his second interview went great with an approval status. I wish we could have found out exactly what he needed before he got the packet at home.
Rating : 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
