Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 4, 2010
Embassy Review : So today was my fiance's interview and he was approved, YAY!!! He stayed in a hotel in VI just so he could avoid that Lagos traffic and make sure he was at the embassy early. He made sure to bring the visa fee in dollars cause we had heard of people getting turned away for not having dollars. He said his interviewer truly grilled him, the interviewer asked him questions like:
- What is your fiance's name?
- What does she do for a living?
- How often do you talk on the phone? The interviewer remarked on how it appears like we're constantly on the phone, our records are massive since we talk at least once a day.
- What do you talk about?
- How did you meet?
- Why did people introduce her to you? (we met through family friends)
- What qualities does she have that you like?
- Have we made any wedding plans?

So after the basic questions, apparently it got more difficult, they ask him since we talk so much:
- What is the name of my church?
- What is the name of my pastor?
- What did I do this weekend?
- Why do we want to get married in the US instead of Nigeria?
- Why does he want to go to the US? What makes the US better than Nigeria?

They truly tried to stump him but he passed with flying colors. After answering all their questions apparently there was several minutes of silence and then the interviewer announced he was approved and gave him the slip to come back and pick up his visa next week! YAY! I've been doing my little two-step dance all day long!!! Thank God for this wonderful 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
