Consulate Review: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 22, 2011
Embassy Review : We arrived @ 6am, 3rd in line. K-1s line up by the door. We entered @ 715am and went upstairs to the waiting room. The assistant in the room had us organize our papers and checked them. Then we were called into an interview booth for an officer to review the papers. This was not the interview.javascript:emoticon('')She gave us back some papers and the our # and told us to go sit and wait. We waited another 20 mins for the real interview.

INTERVIEW:
A nice young woman greeted us and asked ChaCha to sign & swear. She asked about 8 questions, mostly about our relationship. Unfortunately, I didn't include my tax info with the I-134. So i had to email it to them. Otherwise APPROVED!
Total time: 2 hours

Word to the wise: Relax, dont stress, and be patient. As long as your love is real and your paperwork is correct (and presentjavascript:emoticon('') you will have no problems.
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
