Review Topic: K1 Visa

We had our interview yesterday 2/24/15, and everybody at the consulate was very nice from security all the way to the consul, we arrived at the embassy at 6AM our interview was at 7:30AM but there was already a line forming, at 7AM two ladies came out and gave us a list of the documents we needed and the order they had to be in, after that we passed threw security and went to the embassy they provided us with a number, like 20 minutes later they called us to window 8 they checked all of our documents and told us two wait for my fiancées name to be called up. 30 minutes later the consul called us to window 3 and spoke to my fiancée asked her 4 questions and told us congratulations approved you will get your passport with visa in 15 days. the consul was extremely nice he even joked around with my fiancée.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

We had our interview today. We don't live in Bogota, so we stayed at the Tryp hotel across the street from the embassy. The interview was for 8:30 am but we arrived by 7:30.

After we got through security, we were given number 26. The numbers are for a preliminary interview by a Colombian employee of the embassy. They were on 14 when we arrived so maybe it took an hour for them to get to 26. The waiting area is outside. There is a roof, but you get sun and the cold. At the preliminary interview, they asked a couple of questions about my husband's previous visits to the US. Then we waited for a couple of hours.

Around 10:20 am we got called up by name, and the state department employee, an American diplomat, asked us a couple of questions: when did you get married? have either of you been married before? how did you meet? The guy was friendly, and then he told us we were approved. He said it will take about ten days to get the passport with the visa back. W... read complete review

Review Topic: General Review

My wifes apt was at 8:45am we got there at 7:30 thinking appt times really do not matter, just a way to stagger the people arriving. At the front gate you give your name and they check the list. My wifes name was not on the list so they sent us around the corner to a Visa Store that took my wife Visa info, entered her in the computer and miraculous when we went back to the back she was on the list. Passed thru security, was giving a number, waited 15 min, my wife went to the window, was asked some questions like was your husband married before, for approx. how long, what's his date of birth, where will you live? then she was told to wait. About 35min later she was called again to the window, this time a different agent. He asked her if I have ever shown signs of being abusive, asked how we met, how long together, have we travelled together, where did we travel too? Explained to her about her rights in regards to domestic violence. Then told her congrats she was approved. The v... read complete review
