Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 21, 2011
Embassy Review : Arrived at Embassy at 430 am . Took a while to get in .First showed the Appointment Letter and the Approval Letter . My Fiancee was then interviewed by a pre-screener (pinay) . Then she waited for a while for her name to be called .Next was the finger-printing and more waiting until her no was called .
She was then interview by a very polite and courteous american woman .Some questions include : where did u meet? , How long is yr relationship, when did yr fiancee visit u in person , how long did he spend , what places you visited together, what is his work , is he married , how many children he has , where does he live , what is her work in the Pi , if she has met my parents or my siblings , when do she plan on travelling to the Usa, when is our wedding , and if we plan on getting married within 90 days .
She asked for some photos of us together --my fiancee was showing her an album (500 photos ) --she only looked at 1 pic. Then she said the magic words '' your visa is APPROVED.
My fiancee smiled and thanked her and left immediately and shared the good news in her hotel room via Skype . It was one of the best moment in our journey together.
I will travel within a month to see and accompany my honey to Florida , Usa. I will soon have my honey in my arms again .
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
