  1. I think it would be helpful to tell my experience to those people who still have lot of doubts or questions about the interview in Naples, Italy (K1 VISA). FIRST DAY: I arrived to the ISTITUTO DIAGNOSTICO VARELLI for the medical exam around 7:40 am and I had already 8 people in front of me waiting, so I suggest to arrive probably around 7:30 and not at 8:00 like the Consulate suggested. I had the blood tests, urine, the chest X-ray and all the vaccines required. At the end they asked me questions like: "do you smoke?" "did you ever had surgery?" "do you have kids?", basically they just wanna know something about you, it was really smooth. I spent 271 Euros for the visit (and not 220), because I forgot the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella). (They will ask you the pictures 5x5 so don't forget to bring them with you at the visit and of course, the passport). SECOND DAY: My appointment was at 9:30 am, I arrived at 9:00 but I had to wait in line for awhile ( I guess they don't let you in if you arrive too early). I was really nervous but I was trying to appeare normal so I went inside. Two girls asked me if I had all the documents required, such as the DS 160, birth certificate, criminal records, affidavit of support and the pictures (5x5), after checked all the documents they asked me to sit and wait my number. After a few minutes it was my turn and the woman (she was italian) asked me the copy of the payment of the request fee (225 Euros), the DS 160, birth certificate, criminal records, the pictures (5x5), my fiance's tax return and Affidavit of Support. Unfortunately my fiancèe didn't have enough income so she asked if I had a JOINT SPONSOR and lucky for me I was prepared for this. We asked to my fiancèe's dad to help us so I brought with me all his documents and she accepted them. She asked me to sit and wait for the interview with the console. The lady who interviewed me was really, really nice. She was speaking in italian but she had the american accent. I spoke in english the whole time but I guess you can choose. She asked me: - How did you met your fiancèe? - How many times you visit him? - You ever met his family? Does he ever met yours? - What's his job? What's yours? - Why you want to get married in the US? - How did he propose? - Have you ever been married before? - Can you show me some photos? I brought 45 pictures of us, so she was satisfied. Of course I had other proves like chat logs, screenshots, tickets, cards but she didn't care. The photos were enough. I think these are the usual questions for a K1 Visa. But at the end of the conversation she said "YOUR VISA HAS BEEN APPROVED. WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES". I was so happy that I wanted to cry! Well, THAT WAS REEEEALLY EASY. The only advice I can give you is: don't be nervous. I know its hard not to be but if you have all the documents everything's gonna be alright. DON'T FORGET TO MAKE COPIES OF ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS. Good luck guys!
