3 hours, or less, to complete the whole interview process and walk out the door is not out of norm.    

 

The embassy has to be opening more windows for interviews.

 

What I am curious about with the scheduling - is what is showing on the calendar for K-1 only and immigrant visas are processed other days?   Immigrant visa interviews are setup through NVC contacting the embassy.   
 

It is possible to sort openings by visa type.

Most immigrant visas are not directly scheduled, not all.

Really hoping we can get a spot on the 20th, too doesn't clear until Monday 😕

 


Time Line:

Spoiler

 

We've known each other online since we were teenagers, almost 2 decades later we started talking a lot more online, and we finally met in person. I am lucky to have a good friend who works for the airline and therefore gives me flight benefits (I pretty much travel for free) Which is why I go back and forth a lot.

Anyone get a CO or see a American working in the Embassy IV area, who is about 50 years old , Average built with grayish hair and a ponytail?

 

His name is Jack and he is from Grand Prarire Texas, I chatted with him for a while when the US Embassy was closed for All Saints Day, he was sneaking out the front door area where you enter for the interviews
