Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My husband's interview was on 15 October 2019 and I came with him to ensure everything was OK. His interview was scheduled for 10:30 AM but based on other reviews, we went to the consulate when it opened at 8 AM and got in pretty quickly. We also made sure not to drink anything before we went, based on those reviews, as there are no bathrooms up on the 59th floor. There were 2 ladies that helped us put the necessary documents into a clear sleeve and then went through security. I brought my phone so I had to give that to security to hold for me and then we went up a secure elevator with a guard to floor 59. We took a ticket and waited for about 10 minutes before we went to a window to have my husband's photo and fingerprints taken and to look through the documents to make sure we had everything needed for the actual interview. We waited another 15-20 minutes and then we were called up to another window for the interview. A very nice man did the interview but he was definitely thorough... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Hello everyone!

I just got approved for my K1 Fiance Visa on the 1st of October at Sydney US Consulate in the MLC Centre. Yayyyyy it finally happens 😍 after 7 months we have been waiting since my fiance submitted his petition 129-F application.

My fiance flew over to Sydney from Phoenix to support me with the final interview, his presence really helped and gave me more confidence.

The night before the interview. I barely slept 😂(may be an hour I think haha), in my mind I was just thinking about the interview, I was very excited, anxious and a bit nervous at the same time.

So my interview was at 8AM in the morning, my fiance and I tried to get to the US Consulate a bit earlier like around 7:20AM, though when we tried to go up with the elevator around 7:30 or so, it was locked and no one can use it except the people working there I guess. So my fiance and I just sat at the cafe on the ground floor and waiting for the tim... read complete review

Excellent experience, exactly as everyone explained here, all the info I received was invaluable, thank you! Took my ticket at 0803 and was out by 0903. The officer asked a lot about my fiancé’s previous denial of entry to the US, but otherwise no issues. If you follow the instructions here you’ll be prepared. I cannot thank everyone enough for their guidance!

Just had my interview today (24/09/2019). Most of the reviews seem very accurate. Thought I'd pitch in my experience because everyone else's experience helped me out a lot!

My interview was scheduled for 8:00 am so i arrived approximately at 7:30 am. Getting around the consulate is fairly easy. There's a food court down below, and if you enter the consulate through the food court area, you'll make your way up two sets of escalators. Once you've gone up two sets of escalators, you'll find yourself in a foyer area, with a few tables / couches / seats and a small cafe. I waited here for about five minutes, until I realised that I could go up to level 10 without waiting. To get to level 10, you'll take the set of elevators on the right. Level 10 will appear on the touch pad. From here, you'll follow the signs towards the US Consulate Security checkpoint, where, you guessed it, you'll go through security.

Before you go through the security process, you'll enter... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Interview at the Sydney Consulate was great. Security checks were very thorough and serious. Once through security, the waiting time to be seen by a Consulate employee was approximately 30 minutes. This is when they check to see if you have all your paperwork, i.e. originals and copies etc. You hand over the paperwork and they ask you to sit down and wait for your number to called. There's no privacy, you can actually hear everyone's story, interview questions and answers. The waiting time from handing over the paperwork to the "interview" was approximately 90 minutes. The interview for me was great for other people not so great. I heard quite a few people being asked to come back or even perhaps being rejected. Like I said, very serious and very thorough process. The waiting is quite nerve wrecking as you can hear everyone else's interview questions and answers. I liked it though, I liked it that it was so formal and thorough.
