Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 27, 2010
Embassy Review : My interview at the US embassy went well!!.. I arrived there around 5:30am prior to my interview at 7am. The Filipino pre-screener and the American Consul officer were really nice. Just follow the embassy rules and you will not find any problem at all..Patience is a virtue!!...I was nervous but I was optimistic about what will happen..I gave my best SMILE(your ultimate weapon)..be polite and respectful and dress properly for the interview...stay humble and avoid being too over confident...The consul officer asked me few questions(personal ones) and said that there's no problem with our papers, my fiance and I are both single and young(no children), we are both professionals and he was able to meet the income requirement and she said that we are approved!!( I even cried!! She was so nice to say it's ok to cry..hahaha)..ahhhh..God is always so good!!..She then told me wait outside..after few minutes my number was called and I was given the "pink" slip!!..yehey!!...I paid 253 pesos(since I'm from Bacolod)..and then I went back @ the hotel with a great&happy smile!!..Thank you Lord for all the blessings..thanks to the VJ members & site..and thank you to my one and only, Matt(my fiance)..
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
