Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 27, 2010
Embassy Review : Very smooth and easy process.

We entered the waiting area at 5am. They called for Immigrant Visa applicants at 6:30, which included K-Visa applicants. We entered the Immigrant Visa section (although K-1 in non-immigrant) and we submitted the DS forms and received our applicant number and waited for 2 hours until our pre-screening interview.

The pre-screener was very polite, and only asked when we met and how we met. Asked for Cenomar, NBI, and Birth Certificate from Flor. I-134 and 2009 Tax return from me, as well as emails and Photos. That was all the documents that were asked from us. Very easy.

The final interview was a nice Consul. Very polite and easy to talk to. She asked where we met and when. Who made first conversation, and why. If we have any arrests, and when we plan to marry. Then she said, "your Visa has been approved!"

Alot less stressful then we anticipated. We were very pleased with the experience.
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Seattle
Event Description
Entry Date : 2010-11-11
Embassy Review : Immigration was simple and easy. The first officer asked when we plan to marry, and forwarded us to the next desk. The 2nd officer checked the papers in the brown envelope, and stamped Flor's passport. He told us to make sure we marry in 90 days, and told us "Welcome Home."

Nothing to worry about.
Harassment Level : Low

*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
