Review Topic: K1 Visa

Let me start the review of by saying that I do not live in Colombia. I'm an Aruba citizen and was sent to Bogota, Colombia for my visa process.

Arrival:
I had my interview set up for Jan 27th at 8:00 AM. The hotel I stayed at was a block away from the U.S Embassy so, I can't speak for how the traffic is for making it on time. I've read several reviews saying not to come super early so I arrived at 7:32 AM. Still thinking it was a bit too early, I went up to the officers at the gates anyway. They checked my passport, my DS-160, and my interview confirmation and asked me what visa I'm going for. Once everything was cleared I was let in. Once inside I had to wait in a line for about 20 minutes with other K visa applicants / Resident visa applicants. My appointment was set for 8:00 AM, but that doesn't mean you will be interviewed at that time. Just make sure you are there, and inside before 8. They call out groups by appointment time and let you in.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I arrived at the Embassy at 7.30 in the morning. There was already a long line outside by the parking lot. Within 10 minutes they started to let everybody in to the parking lot where they have tents. Here they gave us information about security and what is allowed and not into the Embassy. Cellular phones, big bags, CD, USBs and dark plastic binders are not allowed into the Embassy. Make sure you don't take these items cause you will be denied entrance at the first security check point and you will have to reshedule your appointment. After this brief information they started letting people in by their appointment hour. At the first check point I told the lady that I came from Aruba for my K1 interview. She gave me a small form and I headed to the first security check point. Here they checked if I had any CD, USB or cellular phone with me. The security guy even made me drink out of the bottle of water I had with me. From here you go will walk inside. If you have a K1 interview you don't... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

We were told the Embassy was going to send me a packet with instructions but they never did. After more than a month passed since we had received the letter from the NVC, I emailed the embassy myself to ask when I should expect the package. They emailed me back immediately telling me my interview would be in three weeks and giving me a whole list of documents I had to gather. They didn't want anything sent to them, they said I had to bring all the documents myself at the time of the interview.
I went through three weeks of incredible stress but I did finally manage to get every single document they asked for.
The interview itself was a breeze. My appointment was at 8:30 am but I showed up there at 7:00. This was actually not necessary because they really stick to their appointment times. I went through one security check when I arrived. You must take care not to have ANY electronic items with you. Not even a cellphone. And no lighters either.
Then I sat and wait... read complete review
