Review Topic: K1 Visa

My fiancé was there for just about an hours and the interview portion was less than 10 minutes. We didn't deviate from the K1 cover sheet provided in the P4 but he said that some of the people before him were asked for photos with their partner. They told him he was approved and that it would take up to 3 weeks for him to receive his passport and package in the mail but he had it in hand within 3 days. Overall, it was a pretty smooth experience.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

The security guards were nice and helpful and directed you where to go each step of the way. My appointment was at 8am. I got to the 10th floor at 7:45 and was the first one to arrive. I was directed to a desk where someone went through my paperwork. She made sure I had all documents that were on the checklist. She put it all in a folder and instructed me to hand it to the person at the desk on floor 59. I then go through security and leave my belongings there in a cubby and head up the elevator to floor 59. You get an appointment ticket, sit down, and wait for your number to be called. You give your paperwork that's in the folder to them. She kept every document that was on the checklist, including i134's supporting documents-3 years tax return transcripts, letter of employment and bank letter. (our paperwork included 1 years worth of pay stubs and bank deposits as recommended by other VJ members-- no one even looked at these). She took my fingerprints and had me go sit down to wait f... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

my husband had his review yesterday and had an appointment time of 10:30, but arrived at 8:30 (and was out of there by 10am). We arrived, got the documents checked, went through security, then went to the 59th floor. You take a ticket, wait, get finger prints. Then they double checked some of our documents, then got called up to the interview window. The interview lasted about 5 minutes, and we got asked where we were going to live, what we planned on doing for work, and some small talk. It was really easy, really fast and everything was approved (pending medical results which haven't yet been sent from Melbourne). We should expect his passport back within 3-4 weeks.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Interview time was set for 11:30am but my wife and I arrived an hour early.

Going through security and sorting of paperwork on level 10 took less than 15 minutes. It was pretty empty thankfully. We were up level 59 with ticket in hand by 10:44am

From there it probably took a little over an hour to be called up. The lady checking my paperwork was very straight faced. I had my wife by my side to try calm my nerves and kick me if I started talking too much. The only hiccup was her questioning where my sponsors financials were but she must have found it as she handed me back my mountain of paper and told me to wait for the interview part.

I felt a little better about my case as I could hear several people interviewed before me with...well what sounded like not the strongest cases and they were all approved.

The wait was probably a further 40 or so minutes. Without watches or a clock anywhere in sight it was hard to tell. I was eve... read complete review
