Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my K-1 consulate appointment on March 4, 2020, shortly before things got really bad with COVID-19.

My appointment was for 7.30am. I got there at 7.15am to wait in line and was told to come back at 7.30 sharp. I came back at 7.25am and was second in line; there were maybe 8-9 people in line total. A few minutes past 7.30am, we were let in. First, I gave my passport to a woman at a podium; she handed me two identical numbers. Then we went through security. I put my bag, coat, belt through the X-ray machine. A security guard had me take my phone and headphones out of my bag and check them; I was given a key for those.

I headed up to the first floor as instructured. I waited 5 minutes before being called to the first window. I handed one of the numbers to the clerk. I didn't receive a laminated sheet with the order to put my documents in, probably because there were so few people. She first asked me for my fiancé's name, address in US, and my address ... read complete review

Consular Interview in Montreal, Canada

I arrived in Montreal the day prior. It started off a little bumpy, as there was some mechanical issue with the first Westjet plane at Toronto Pearson Airport so we had to disembark and board another flight to Montreal.

I took an Uber from Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport to my hotel at Residence Inn by Marriott (cost about $33 CAD). I chose this hotel because it was a 3-minute walk away from the US Consulate General. I also had “gold” membership status (thanks to my American Express which I obtained for immigration purposes) and received a free upgrade and a late check-out at 2 pm.

I arrived at my interview at 0915. My appointment time was 0930. As expected, I was turned away by the security guard. They would not allow me to wait out the time in the hallway because of the RBC security guard so I went over to Second Cup to pass the time because it was raining. I returned at aro... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Here is a detailed review of my experience at the US Consulate:


My appointment time was at 9:30 am. I went around 9:25 am and was turned away by the security guard. The line was completely full.

I came back at 9:30 am and was permitted entry. The security guard let another lady in after me, she was turned away twice already and her appointment time was at 9:30am as well. We waited in line for around an hour.

The security guards were definitely off of their game. They were gossiping about other people who were present (there was an incident where a lady raised her voice because of the wait, they were gossiping about her.) Another lady went through the metal detector and the officer asked if she had a belt on, as she set it off. She said no, but she’s wearing an underwire bra. He rolled her eyes and scoffed- as if it was wrong of her to do so. She said sternly: “SORRY MY BOOBS ARE BIG.” I chuckled at that. They were also bicker... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

We arrived about 10 minutes early and the security guard allowed us in (others reportedly have had to wait until 5 minutes before their scheduled time). There is airport style security screening now. While our jackets were being scanned, a girl took our passports and put stickers on them. We were handed 2 number tags which were our call numbers once in the Consulate. Many people had wallets and purses, so maybe they are less strict about it with the security scan? We didn’t bring anything with as per previous instruction, so it wasn’t an issue.

We took the elevator to the 1st floor as instructed. We waited about 20 minutes until we got called to the first window. The children were able to go sit while I provided documents to the clerk. She did mine first, followed by the children. She scanned our passport photos and gave them back. She gave me back my CD of my chest X-ray. I was asked for hubby’s W2 (we didn’t have our 2019 return back yet). I was NOT asked for... read complete review
