Review Topic: K1 Visa

In short, my experience was great and the staff was very nice and efficient.

My interview time was at 8:30 am on a Friday morning and I got to the entrance of the HK Consulate around 8:15am. The security guard checked my interview letter at the gate and let me in even though I was a bit early. After going through a simple security check, the guards led me to the US citizens line instead of the non-immigrant visa line, which was SIGNIFICANTLY shorter. I was very glad I didn't have to wait in that long line.

After going through more security checks and leaving my electronics in the locker they provided, I headed up to the 1st floor since that is where the immigration unit was located. I'm guessing 8:30am was the earliest interview slot because the windows were open yet when I got there so I waited a bit until one of the staffs called my name and waved my over to the counter.

First, the staff who called me over was a Chinese speaking lady who a... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Fiancee arrived just after 8 AM for an 8:30 appointment. Many people out front but after being directed to the blue line, there were only a few for K1 interview. DS160 was checked and figure prints taken then sat in waiting room. First officer was Chinese and quite helpful and pleasant. Checked for fee receipt and took NBI. Checked out pictures but did not look at her handmade book of evidence. After another wait, second officer was Caucasian, probably American. She was efficient but curt. Also checked original pictures but not book of evidence. Asked why she did not have police report from Dubai, where my fiancee had worked 10 years ago. We had sent an inquiry to the HK embassy previously about the need for this report and they had replied with the travel.state.gov statement that it was not necessary unless she was physically present in UAE, so this is what she said, and the subject was dropped. Also asked her birthday, how we met, and how long ago. She took the the I-134 and supporti... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Interview was quite eventful, appointment was 9.30am and i left at 11.15am.

I arrived early, and i saw 3 queues in front of the entrance: 2 queues by appointment time (8.30 - 9.00am) / (9.30 - 10.30), 1 queue for American Citizen
I went to the queue for 9.30am. The officer in front of the queue looked at my paper and asked me to go to the american citizen line where i can go straight in.

I went up to a bag check desk, the lady then pointed me to the general queue, which i didnt feel right. I told them I'm applying for immigrant visa. I proceeded immediately to security scanning. They asked my to take my shoes off and then a person fainted they have to stop letting people in for a bit.

It was a small room with 4 windows, basically there's only 1 consulate throughout.

It was so loud that I get to listen to everyone's interview. 


I queued up at window 1 to give them my doc pack. I sorted them nea... read complete review

Very pleasant experience - the consulate was well organized. Nice officers who were very patient in explaining what to expect for the interview.

The actual interview was short (maybe lasted a minute at the counter, through a glass window - asked how we met, what my (then) fiance does for a living, and congrats! your visa is approved!

Review Topic: K1 Visa

The officers took a really quick look at my fiance's package, and didn't ask a question about our relationship at all. They proceeded to explain all the legal stuff, including the number to call the police (911) if there were any signs of domestic violence, and afterwards took my fiance's passport and asked her to go home and wait for the new visa to arrive.
