Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

I attended my interview at the (new) US Embassy in London on April 18th 2018. From start to finish the process was painless and straight forward. My interview was scheduled for 10.30 and I arrived at 10 am. Upon arrival I was asked to present my passport and my D-260 receipt page outside the embassy. Immediately after this I passed through airport-style scanners and then made my way into the embassy where I was filtered into a queue. However, an attendant noticed that I was holding paperwork for an immigration visa application, spoke to me to confirm this, and then walked me to the front of the queue.... so it is possible that I had joined the wrong line in the first place and was standing with people that were seeking non-immigrant visas?

No harm done... So I proceeded to the back of the hall area and took the elevator up to the first floor where visa interviews take place. Upon exiting the elevator (doors open on opposite side to entry side), I entered the large waiti... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I went to the US embassy on April 13th, 3 weeks after my medical exam. My fiancé who is visiting was able to come with me inside the building which was very pleasant to have it by my side.
1st tent outside, the lady only took my DS-160 and both our passports. We went through security easily, my fiancé had his backpack with him it didn't cause any problem at all. Inside the building, the reception took again my DS-160 and passport, and invited me to get to the first floor.
At a first window, my number was called after 10 minutes. A gentleman that I could barely hear asked for my DS again, passport, photographs, police records, birth certificate and affidavit of support. He also took my fingerprints and asked me to take a seat.
Then, I was called at another window for THE interview after maybe 15-20min. It was the easier part, the lady was absolutely lovely, she made me swear I was saying the truth and took my fingerprints again. She only asked me how my fiancé ... read complete review

Firstly, parking near the embassy: there is none. Although there is a Waitrose underground car park right next to the embassy, it's only free for 2 hours as long as you're a Waitrose customer. I decided to chance it and parked there. I bought a bottle of water before going to the embassy and then had food in the cafe after so I had two receipts just in case. Advice: I wouldn't risk parking there again, the fine for overstay is £90.

My interview was at 11:30 so I turned up at 11:10 to go through the airport style security. I was the only one in the queue. A lady came outside and took my Embassy appointment letter and passport, disappeared inside. Came back out with a written note on my letter and went through security. I had a bottle of water that I hadn't opened yet and it wasn't an issue.

I absolutely love the new embassy building. Walked inside to another reception area, where I was asked for my DS-160. A bunch of stickers with my queue number were pla... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My interview was in London on April 5th 2018 at 11.30am. I arrived at the embassy at 11am and I was the first in line at the little booth outside. A few minutes after 11am a girl came over to me and took my appointment letter and also my passport, she also took my fiance's US passport as he was coming into the embassy with me, we went through security and then walked into the main building. There were no queues at all so I walked straight up to the front desk and the girl asked for my DS160 confirmation page, gave me back my passport, and she gave me a number which I would need for the interview. We went up in the elevator and headed round to the immigrant 'waiting room' where there were about 7 people already seated - it was actually a pretty small space. We sat there for about 10 mins then my number was called, I went up to the window and I handed over some docs i.e. my police certificate, my passport again, the i-134 and I think that was about it. The person behind the window asked ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

So my interview at the US Embassy was literally the easiest part of my process so far! I was worried about a couple of things the night before- firstly, I noticed that my letter from employer document didn't have an original signature, and secondly the weather was AWFUL. I had to catch a train from Birmingham to London the next morning and it was literally blizzarding in Birmingham the night before. But luckily, it was all fine in the morning and my train ran as expected!

I got to the Embassy about 40 minutes before my interview and went to the South Pavilion entrance. I had printed off the online booking confirmation for my interview, and I showed them that and was granted entry. I had with me a small backpack (containing snacks in case I was kept waiting!), a ringbinder containing all my documents and a bottle of water. I was asked to take a sip from my bottle of water, but everything went through the airport-style luggage scanner without any issues.

I... read complete review
