Review Topic: K1 Visa

Had my interview at the Amsterdam Consulate two days ago and it went extremely smoothly. Everyone, from the guards to the consular officers, were very helpful and friendly. The whole process didn't take more than an hour and my visa is on the way as we speak.

WE GOT APPROVED...the long wait is (almost) over :-)

Nothing much to add to what has already been said.
Positive experience with the consulate, supper friendly workers, they make you feel confortable. I had a smooth process (second in line).
All I can say is, rehears the sample question (they ask questions based on your situation) and make sure you have all your documents with you (almost forgot the passports for both me and my son!!!) I had to rush back home before catching the train to Amsterdam. So I would advise you to leave on time and check check double check your stuff!

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My interview was 9/19 at 1330--I arrived about 15 minutes early. At exactly 1330, security guards came and opened the doors to the embassy for appointments. Do NOT bring cell phones or electronic equipment--this will delay your interview.

I carried all of our documents in a backpack, so my bag was searched and I went through something like airport security before being seated in the waiting room. I was initially called to Window #5, where a very encouraging, polite, and friendly woman asked for my passport, passport photos, the affidavit of support and birth certificate. She asked me about my fiance's children--how many, their ages, and then asked that I sit in the waiting area again.

After a short wait (maybe ten minutes), I was called to Window #6. The man there, who was also very friendly, courteous, and supportive, asked that I swear that the information we'd provided was true, and I signed the documents that had been required be sent ahead of the ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Thursday July 25th is when I had my interview appointment at the Consulate General in Amsterdam at 13:30h (1.30pm local time).

I was the first in line and when I entered the building, I had to show my passport and appointment letter at the main desk. I also had to walk through a scan, similar to the ones you have at the airport. This is also where they scan your bag(s) if you have any with you.

Make sure you don't bring any electronical devices!!!
I didn't have one with me, but the security officer told everyone who did have an electronical device with them (such as a laptop or mobile phone) would have to wait +- 40 minutes to 1 hour longer than other people.

After they checked my passport, appointment letter and bag I had to walk to desk 5. This is where I had to give my birth certificate, 2 passport-style pictures, 7,70 stamp for registered mail and the I-134 including supporting financial documents.

When I gave al... read complete review
