Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Arrived at 9:30 for my 10:30 appointment and was told to report back to the desk outside at 10:00, so after a little walk around a very pretty but chilly Grosvenor Square, I went back and showed my passport and Courier booking confirmation print-out, which also had details of my appointment on. I was ticked off the printed out list and shown to the security hut. After having my bag scanned and walking through the body scanner (no pat down or anything), I headed towards the consulate entrance round the corner, showed my passport again and was given a sheet of paper with my number on to look out for on the screen.

The room was very busy and I took a seat and waited for my number to come up. I was I902 so when I901 came up, I knew I wouldn't be long behind and ten minutes later my number came up, so I headed to the appropriately numbered desk. Unfortunately the person in front of me was still at the desk handing over paperwork, so I kept a respectful distance behind him an... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Jon's interview was Friday January 6th at 12:00 PM. We arrived that day from Norwich via the Greater Anglia train, which thankfully was running on time with no delays. (They were having issues almost daily on the train we had to take so that's why I made note of it.) We arrived at Liverpool St Station at just before 10:00 AM and grabbed a taxi to our hotel which was centrally located near Holborn Station on the Central line.

We checked in so that we could drop our bags in the room and head to the embassy. We had a short walk from our hotel to the Holborn station. We got off at the Bond Street exit and the embassy is a very short walk from there. It took us about 10 minutes to leisurely stroll there after checking with google maps to see exactly where we needed to go.

We arrived at the embassy around 11:15 AM and were greeted by a nice young English girl to check us in. There was no line at all when we got there and we only saw the two entrances (one for US... read complete review

Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing

I had my interview on Jan. 4 at 12:30pm for the CR-1 visa. First I got to the tent outside around 11:30 and the woman checking interview letters made a group of us stand off to the side and wait until 12:00 to enter. At 12:00 she checked my letter and passport then sent me to security where they do a routine airport-type security check. Then you walk around to the entrance where reception is, they print out your number and stick it to your interview letter and advise you to sit toward the front of the room. It is essentially like the DMV, the immigrate visa people are meant ionsit up towards the front of the room and the non-immigrant visa sit in the back. After about 5 minutes I got called up to the first window. A very pleasant man asked for my documents. I gave him all the documents written on the checklist and nothing more. For the I-864 I tried to give him an explanation of taxes and intent to domicile and he gave it all back. He double checked all of the documents and then told ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My interview was back in August 2016, however I forgot to write this review. I still wanted to share my experience as hearing other people's stories really helped me feel assured and know what to expect.

Looking back, I was so nervous about the interview even though I had no reason to be! I guess it's because it's such a big moment you build up to and by that point all you want to be is with your partner.

My appt was at 12, but I arrived around 10.30. Luckily I lived in NW London so the commute was pretty painless. They didn't let me in until 11, but once I was in it was kind of like going through an airport. Your bags go on a conveyor belt and then you are then 'checked in' at reception. I was given a number and told that I would be called up to a window twice. The first time I was to hand over all the documentation I was told to bring and the second time I would talk to someone and be approved or denied.

The man who I spoke to at the firs... read complete review
