Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Husband arrived 30 minutes early. He was greeted by the officer that does the initial small interview to gather the required documents. Affidavit of Support and W2 were required among the other necessary documents to provide. They were very nice and helpful, assisted husband in organizing and turning in the documents they needed.

There were three other people in line ahead of him and he ended up being last to be called. The wait was a little less than two hours from walk in to actual interview. The interview only took about five minutes. The final consular officer for the main interview was very nice as well.

Some of the questions asked that he remembers:

What is your full name?
Are you married?
Have you ever been in the military?
Have you lived in any other countries?
Have you gone to the US in the past?
When did you get married? (Asked twice during the interview)
Where were you married?

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

The experience was good. We got there early as we git emails with two different times and wanted to be sure. We had to leave our phones by the Old Age home (hogar de ancianos) that's on the same side of the road as the embassy.

To get in was relatively smooth. There were only 3 people in front of us. Our documents were taken and put together. Only civil documents. We were offering the financial documents but we were told maybe the next person would ask for it. We were only asked for address and marriage date, which I got incorrect.

The longest part was to wait for the actual interview, there were like 5 people after us but they were all called first and we were left for last. Scary. When we were finally called up again about 90 minutes had passed. We were asked how we met, and marriage date. Nothing else then were told we were approved.

We were worried about the email from the embassy that had said civil documents had to be apostilled but t... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I got there almost 10 minutes after my appointment hour (thanks Uber -_-) but they took me in no problem, so not to worry if you get in there a little late, just explain and the embassy is very understanding.
My appointment was for 1:30 Pm and after having been put through security (mind you, anything metal that you have on you will have to take off, I even had to take my heels off!)
It was a non busy day whatsoever, there were no lines or anything of that sort, and the first guy is essentially is a person who scans your DS-160 and takes your medical)
I got my ticket and the moment I went in they were already calling my number (probably cause I was the last one)
The first lady was extremely nice (mind you, there's a distinction between the first people who tend to you and the consular officers themselves, as for the latter these are actual U.S. citizens)
She was very polite and asked me for financial evidence documents, I-134, civil documents (mi... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

We waited there around 4 hours with a toddler. The officer was intimidating but we understand he was just doing his job ( trying to find a weak point in the application/ interview) but we answered every question with the truth and at the end he said “ well, I couldn’t find a reason to deny your visa “ .
Honesty works so just make sure you are telling the truth.! He did the interview in English but we also speak Spanish , he basically just ignored my husband ( he is the petitioner)
