Medical examination in Amsterdam, The Netherlands at Dr. Schulte/Van Goyen Clinic.

I would like to leave a review of my experience at the doctors' office because it is something I would have wanted to read more about before having to go.

Practical things. The docs office is right down town, and going by car and parking in front of the docs office is possible. There's also a parking garage called Museum Quarter in the same street as the docs office. Ofcourse this is all very expensive. An alternative would be to park your car at the P+R of the Olympic Stadium and take tram 16 or 24 down town. Don't throw away your tram ticket because when you scan it when you go get your car back, parking will be only 1 euro per 24 hours. A tram ticket costs 2,90 euro to get into town. The tram stops right in front of the stadium and takes you to the Museaumplein area in about 15 min. I like this option very much, its easy and cheap. Theres also a couple of hotels in the st... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

First of "DO NOT BRING YOUR PHONE"

It's clearly stated to not bring your phone but again on this day there were several people that got sent to the back of the line because they brought phones.

Apparently if the number is not to great, they will let you in after the rest of the people, but if they run out of room to store them I guess they sent you home.

Change from last reviews:
Show up on time and wait in line. They no longer pick out the immigrant visa's and it's first come first serve.

Staff is extremely nice and helpful.

Immigrant visa's open the door (yes it is heavy) and go to the room on your right. (window 5)

ones it was my turn the aid wanted to have:
Passport
Birth certificate + copy
Police certificate (VOG) + Copy
I-134 (original wet signature!!)
3 years worth of tax returns

And wait to be called to window 6
Got sworn in.<... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my interview at 13:30 and arrived at 13:15. You leave all your belongings at the security desk, except for your wallet and paperwork. And yes, bring no electronic devices!

I had to wait for about 13:45 to take fingerprints and hand over the following items:
* Birth certificate + a copy
* Verklaring goed gedrag + a copy
* 2 US style passport photo's
* Form I-134 (+ supporting materials)

Getting my fingerprints right was difficult as I had dry hands. The Dutch lady at the counter was very friendly to me, but the next guy apparently showed up with wrong documents and I heard her giving him hell like your strictest school teacher.

The interview was pleasant and quick. Before the interview, you take fingerprints again and you swear to tell the truth with your hand raised. My interview questions were
* where did you meet?
* when did you first meet?
* is your fiancÚ divorced?
* is this y... read complete review

Review Topic: Other Experience

First of all, thank you all so much for your reviews, it really helps reading what you can expect before going trough it yourself.

I am a DV2015 lottery winner (unfortunately that wasn't one of the options I could select in this post) and I had my interview on June 11th at the US consulate in Amsterdam.

I applied in October 2013 for the lottery, found out I won May 2014, got married October 2014, and my Case Number became current (ready for an interview) in June 2015. My initial interview date was on June 2nd, but when me and my husband arrived at the embassy his name wasn't on the list. Very strange since we submitted his documents online to KCC, and KCC told me both were processed. I was still let in and tried my hardest to get my husband in as well, without any luck. I was first in line, and when we came in I could immediately submit my documents at window 5. Then at window 6 I did a small interview, which was pretty laid back. Then the CO said that o... read complete review
