Review Topic: K1 Visa

The Visa Interview was a not the scary experience I had been expecting. The consulate staff were all welcoming and friendly, whilst being very professional. On arrival, you are given a number and you then take a seat in the waiting area, until your number is called to go to a member of staff at one of the desks/windows. The interview has two parts, the first being a document check, which takes around 5 to 10 minutes. You then seat back down in the waiting area until your number is called again for your interview. At the interview window, the member of staff has all of your paperwork from your initial application through to the current. The interview did not take long and was mainly confirming who my fiance was, where she lived and our wedding plans. It felt more like a chat with a friend than an interview. Following the brief chat, the lady I saw, smiled and said "I am happy to tell you that your Visa has been approved." I was then advised that it would take up to 17 days for my passpo... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

We had applied through DCF. The interview was at 11:30 on the 16th March. We arrived 45 minutes early, there was only a short line, and when I told the girl at the awning that there were three of us (petitioner and two beneficiaries), she noted that my name was not on the list but that it was no longer an issue and I would be allowed in. We almost made it in, but she saw at the last moment that we were early and told us to come back at 11:15. So we just sat by a memorial until about 11:10 and then she let us proceed. No line, through security in moments, and into the front entrance. Helpful desk clerk sent us up to the visa waiting area and before we had sat down and gathered our thoughts, our number was on the screen, for window 13.
The guy there was very friendly and helpful, and while I popped to the neighbouring window to pay the fee, my wife was sorting through the papers with him. He took the original and copy of the expected list: Marriage certificate, my naturalisation ... read complete review

Brilliantly speedy and efficient process that was made as non-stressful as possible by the friendly staff. At no point did I feel pressured and all my anxieties of waiting were alleviated as soon as I spoke with members of staff.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

The interview itself took about 30 seconds, and the overall visit was about an hour and a half from start to finish. Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the entire process! I spent a majority of the time waiting to be called up. You initially have to go through a scanner, similar to what happens at TSA in the airports. For those of you WITH a co-sponsor:

My fiancée's dad was our co-sponsor due to the income requirement. My fiancée had still given me an I-134 of her own, just to be safe incase they wanted to see hers- even though nearly *everyone* has sworn they would not care about hers. The officer I had asked to see hers despite having her father's, which had more than enough income to prove I would not become a public charge in the U.S. I'm really thankful she decided to write one out just incase! Maybe it wouldn't have been a problem if she hadn't, but I'm glad that I had it on hand so when he asked me for it, I was able to give i... read complete review

No queue when I got there at 11:30am (there was a huge one about 2 hours before that when I first walked by). Was quickly sent into the waiting seat area. Promptly got the first part done and spent maybe 40 minutes waiting for the 2nd interview. This went painlessly and I was approved. I was there for about an hour.
