Costa Rica Review #23677 on April 23, 2018:

Review Topic: K1 Visa

All of the staff were very professional and courteous. The document review was first and that went very quickly with no questions. The interview was second and was relaxed and fairly quick with the questions centering on how we met and how many trips I had to Costa Rica during our relationship. From start to finish, the process took just under an hour.

I had my interview scheduled for Monday April 23 at 11am. exactly 10 working days after I had my medical. I emailed last week to check they had sent it, for my own peace of mind more than anything else!

I arrived about 10 minutes earlier, the lady in the tent outside took my DS-160 confirmation page and scribbled on it, went through security and went through a reception where another lady took the DS-160 and stuck some stickers on it. No queueing at all. She gave me instructions to go to Level 1, windows 21-25.

As soon as I got to the immigration area, a man at window 21 waved me over before I even sat down. He took my DS-160 confirmation, Passport, Photo, Police Certificate, Affidavit of Support and Birth Certificate. He gave me back my chest x-ray CD. He then did my fingerprints, and asked if I had been married before, and if I have lived anywhere other than the UK. I told him I was born in Zimbabwe, but have lived in the UK since I was 11. He didn't ask anything following on from that, and told me to have a seat until my number was called again.

About 10-15 minutes later, a young American lady called me to a different window and asked me to take an oath, before doing fingerprints. She was very nice too, and asked me how long I had lived in Zimbabwe, where my fiancée lives, how I met her, whether either of us had been married before, if she had her own house, and I think that was it. She gave me back my original documents the first officer had taken, and said everything was in order and that she was going to approve the visa! No further support evidence required. I was shocked and asked if that really was it...she smiled and said yes, and that I should receive my visa in 1-2 weeks! And off I went, not even 20 minutes after my scheduled interview time!

Hope this helps someone, best wishes to all on their journey towards getting a visa. The interview is one of the more pleasant experiences!

We Arrived to the embassy around 6:30 AM, our appointment was scheduled for 7:30am. We waited outside for about 45 minutes. At the entraces they check your appointment comfirmation page and also the pictures they were very picky, if the picture is too white to dark, or pixels are too notice they will make you take new pictures inside the embassy for the cost of 18 soles for 3 pictures. Once inside they will call you to one of the windows to collect all the documents they requested please make your you take the receipt of the D-260 is we did not have it because they didn’t ask for it on any paperwork they send you but they ask for it at the window also if possible make sure the Petitioner is there, one lady was there by herself and she was ask thousand questions before the interview why he wasn’t there, is a very important step and should be there, I went there with my fiance and we were ask about 4 questions (how we met, where she is gonna be leaving, when you planning to get marry in the states), make sure you know the requirements to get marry in your state. The interview was quick they look at our pictures and the CO said the visa is approve gave us a paper with intructions how to pick your passport and your packet he said it takes about 2 weeka but our interview was April 18th and April 21th the packet and passport was ready for pick-up
