Review Topic: K1 Visa

I arrived at the embassy at 9:50am (Appointment at 10:30), I handed over my passport and DS160 to the guy at the tent and went straight in and through security within 3 minutes.

Once I reached the next area I was sent to the front of the queue (I assume everyone else was queuing for tourist visas), the ladies at the desk advised me to take the lift to the 1st floor, once I got there I turned left and followed the signs to windows 19-24 which is the immigrant visa section and was almost completely empty. As soon as I walked around the corner my number was called.

I spoke to a very nice officer who took my documents, my fingerprints etc and we just chatted while he processed everything. He informed me my medical hasn't yet arrived :'( When we were done, he advised me there would probably be a bit of a wait until the 2nd officer sees me so to call Knightsbridge and see what's going on.

I called Knightsbridge and they told me it will be sent ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Very quick and efficient once I was seen. Snacks and drinks were there but not available! I was desperate for a drink as I had to wait 3 hours. Security took away my perfume and said they would discard it but the nice man spotted me on my way out and returned it. (Very small glass bottle).

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

So arrived about 30 mins early for the interview at the new embassy. Was a little nervous but all the staff and even police outside the embassy are very helpful and calm you down!

Proceeded through security, its airport style. They allow small backpacks in BTW. got through security and proceeded to enter the embassy.

Once you walk in, you approach a desk where they ask for appointment letter and passport. they then check these and stick a sticker onto the appointment letter. Your appointment number is on the sticker. Don't lose the sticker!!! They then explain your appointment number to you and tell you where to go next.

You then go up the elevator to the first floor, which has loads of interview windows. The Immigrant visa windows are left out of the lift and round a corner. Once there, you sit and wait for your number to appear.

Once your number appears (took around 15 mins for me) you proceed to the window where they chec... read complete review

Review Topic: EB-1 Visa

Well that was a waste of time that might have life changing repercussions for me.

Interview scheduled for 9am January 30th at the new London embassy. Got there early, but allowed through at 8.30am. Process was smooth as I was in an immigrant visa category, and I got to skip nearly all of the queues. Immigrant visa petitioners end up in a separate private section away from everyone else two left hand turns from the elevators. This is where things stopped being smooth.

The process is in three parts: 1) submission of documents, wait and then 2) actual interview then 3) pay visa fee.

1) Spoke to the lady at the window. Volume on the speaker was really low so was a struggle to hear her. Find out at this point that they did not have my medical file but get through this part ok. They keep your original birth certificate at this point and don't tell you, so a few of us were wondering what was going on.

2) Get to the interview properly... read complete review
