Comments : Atlanta was a great POE. He went through everything with no trouble at all and it took very little time. They were very friendly and even were joking around with him about some of the food he was bringing through. He said it was a very nice experience and his nerves were calmed by the way they treated him and everyone around him.

Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 13, 2005
Embassy Review : Overall I think our experience at the embassy was ok. They were fairly timely in answering emails and were helpful when you could actually reach them on the phone. Andre said that they were friendly and that he felt at ease with the people at the embassy. The actual CO that interviewed him the first time was cordial but not overly friendly. He was issued a 221g so he went back for a second interview about 2 months later. He got the same woman and he said that she remembered him and was all smiles and laughing and making jokes. He had to deal with a supervisor for a few minutes and she was a bit rough but overall professional. The embassy is not the most put together and they will tell you something different every time. We were asked for more proof of a relationship and then at the second interview they didnít even want to look at it- and it was the same lady! If you are willing to run with the run around and jump through the hoops over and over you can make it through the process in one piece. Kingston is not organized but they are easy to work with. Just my two cents. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want more detailed info.

*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.
