Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Well, how it works is pretty well known from previous reviews, just as a reminder: Let your phone and other electronics at home or in your car, it only costs you more time if you don't!

The papers that matter were all perfect when I came at the first window.
One thing though: When you get your birth certificate, make sure to ask for an INTERNATIONAL one, not jsut a normal one with translation, I know that's what it says when you get info about getting documents, that you needed to get a translation, but they don't find that good enough these days,
in my case it didn't cause problems because it happens often.
Also she said at the first window that taking a lawyer really isn't needed as long you read everything carefully you're fine, lawyers just cost alot of money mostly.
Also she wasn't a fan of visajourney because she had alot of people crying at her window because they followed advice from here.

In other words: make sure that... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Here's my review about my interview (rescheduling) experience...

I was visiting my husband in the States when I finally got word from NVC that they forwarded my case to the consulate. I had received my interview date one week later on jan 13th. Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the scheduled interview date, they scheduled me on feb 17th, the day I was flying back to the Netherlands! Crazy timing. So I emailed them, they gave me instructions to first make an appointment for the medical exam...which I ended up scheduling on the day I flew back into the Netherlands. Wao crazy. Fly, land, medical... Then one day later I got an email from the consulate that I could come in the following week for an interview on the 26th of Feb, so basically one week later - they wouldn't give me the interview date before I had my medical, but said there isn't a long waiting time after they would receive medical results.

I brought so much paperwork with me for the interview, I ev... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Went relatively smooth, short summary:

First of all: Please do not bring a phone or any other electronic devices. You won't be allowed in while carrying one.

Because I don't trust the dutch public transportation system I drove to Amsterdam, and parked at the Qpark parking lot. This is 2 euro's for every 20 minutes or part thereof, in total I spent 20 bucks on parking because I got there very early and I didn't go home straight from the interview.
I arrived at the consulate around noon, 90 minutes early, just to be sure I was on time. They had a tent pitched outside to keep you dry what was very nice. Since I was so early and the doors really won't open before 1:30, I decided to get a bite to eat downtown which is only 15 minutes away by foot.

Around 1:15pm more and more people gathered around the entrance of the consulate, besides me there were 2 more gentleman for the R/C-r visa, the rest seemed to be non-immigrant visa applicants.... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Today, I (Jeroen) had my interview at the Amsterdam Consulate General.
It was a very quick and good experience for me.

If you come by car; park in the "Q-park Museumplein" parking garage under the Museumplein, the entrance is right across the "Concertgebouw" and under the Albert Heijn. This way you don't have to worry about getting back to your car on time or getting a parking ticket.

There is no need to be at the Consulate General any earlier than 13:15. This is just the line for getting in and going through security; not the order in which people are being served by the CO. The security guard will line people up outside first. Immigrants (including K1) line up at the front of the line and go in first, all Non-Immigrants have to wait and go in later.

OK. You have made it inside of the Consulate. Have your passport and original interview confirmation letter in hand, since you will need to show this to the security guard inside, befor... read complete review
