Consulate Review: Moscow, Russia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 19, 2011
Embassy Review : Went to the embassy half an hour before the interview at 08:00 am. Had all my documents in one big folder + medical exam envelope. Before they rook all my documents and medical results. Consul (it was a nice young brunet) asked what's the name of the petitioner, and who is he to me (I said he's my future husband if I'll get that visa). When she asked where did we met first time and second time. Do my parents know his parents and if they like each other. All interview took about 2 minutes when she said that my documents are in order and I'll get visa in 7 days. We're happy and excited.
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
