Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

The wait is finally over! My husband is finally by my side!!
My husband said that at the interview they only asked him a few questions:

Do you swear that you're about to tell the truth and nothing but the truth?:
Who is petitioning for you?:
What is she to you:
When was the last time you saw her?:

Congrats your Visa is approved!

I wasn't able to make it to the interview which made me a little nervous but thank God everything came out great!

Good luck to everyone that's going through this process.... my best advice is to be patient and pray a lot. :-)

Review Topic: K1 Visa

We had our appointment at 7:30am....We arrived at 6:30am and there was a long line waiting for the embassy staff to come out to start the process. The embassy staff came out around 7am and broke up the line according to the visa type. For our K1 visa we end up on line 3. Once on line 3 the embassy staff gave us direction on what order they wanted the documents in. From there we cleared security and went to window 4 where a Colombian embassy staff reviewed the documents and asked question about me and my fiancee and they asked just to sit and wait for her name to be called. In about 30 minutes, the American Consul called us and asked her to swear the she will be telling the truth. 3 simple question were asked. 1) Where will you live in the US 2) when and where did you meet 3) when did he arrived from the US on this trip. The she advised her that the visa was approved.

Overall a great experience

Review Topic: K1 Visa

We had an appointment for 8am. We arrived at 645.

The short line was for K1 VISA

We were well prepared thanks to this site.

Interview on the phone through the glass in an outdoor plaza.

The female officer spoke Spanish to my wife.

She never spoke to me but acknowledged my presence.

We were done by 815am , approved.

Positive experience.

Review Topic: K3 Visa

We had no problems with our interview or paperwork. Best thing is to make sure you are prepared with ALL of the required paperwork. I think most people laughed at my three inch thick folder but we left with an approval and that is the desired result right? This process is real easy if you have a real relationship. I wanted my wife to be able to plan her wedding but if we would have waited until she came, we wouldn't have had answers to many of the interview questions. We studied all of the typical topics like each others family members and our experiences together but the details of our wedding plans seemed to make a big impression with the interviewer. Best to be relaxed and honest.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my appointment at 10am, there was a huge line but just for tourist visa, so I just walked to the front and asked to the helping lady what should I do, I told her I was there for my K1 visa, she said I should wait in line #3 and someone else will help me, after 5 minutes a guy asked my name and find me in the list he already had, and gave me a green sticker, after that he said i need the papers in the following order: DS-160 confirmation page, Birth certificate, criminal records (Pasado Judicial), medical exams, Affidavit of support I-134, passport and 2 pictures. after pass the security point I was in, and a second lady asked me if I had all the documents in order, I said yes, so she said I could go and do the line in the window #4, there were just 4 people so it was pretty quick, the lady behind the glass asked me to leave all the documents in a envelope she got me and she started to asked me questions over the phone, she checked my case number and bring it, it was a big file :D... read complete review
