Consulate Review: Chile
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 28, 2011
Embassy Review : My interview was scheduled for march 2nd at 2 PM, Paul and I went to Santiago about 10:30 am so we will have time enough to pick up my medical exam results, then we had lunch (yummy lasagna hehe)and afterwards we took a taxi to Santiago Embassy, once there (1:45), we went trough security and they gave us a token with the number 5 on it, that meant that there were 4 people before us all waiting for their visa interviews, there were 1 more couple waiting for the K-1 as well. I was a little bit nervous cause you never now what would happen plus all the experience with the LONG USCIS process wasn't too pleasant to make me feel comfortable with the american immigration officers...but I was wrong, everyone at Santiago Embassy was really nice and polite,Paul went to the window with me as we saw another couple did same thing before (different window though) but the lady asked him to have a seat and asked for my papers (Chile express receipt,Birth and police certificates with their translations, medical exam results, form I-134 with all the backup documents)then she made me sign the DS-156K sworn part, She asked me to go back to my seat and wait for the consular officer who was going to ask me some more questions. Then we just waited for the second part of the interview with the Consular Officer, we were just talking and being goofy as always meanwhile my name would be called again. Finally they called me, the consulate officer, a really nice lady named Rachel, talked to me in spanish, asked me how we met, what our plans were, she asked me if I spoke english, I said yes :P and then she asked if Paul spoke spanish, she laugh when I looked at him and said not much, after that she called Paul and told him "we were talking about you" then she asked him a few question about his work and asked me if we had wedding plans,I told her yes on march 12th, she smiled and said I'll see what we can do about it, because DHL supposed to deliver Visas in a range of 7 to 10 days, we already had plans to travel back to US on march 8th so it was a little bit overwhelming at first but, as always, Santiago Embassy did their magic and mailed my visa 2 days after my enterview!!
To God be the glory! He was in control of everything
We were not asked for any additional evidence but is always good to be prepared.
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.
