Review Topic: K1 Visa

We had the appointment at 10:30am. They recommend you arrive 15min early. We arrived around 10:10am and approached the security checkpoint around as we noticed others going in. There weren't many people wanting to go in. It was probably because of the time of the interview. I decided to attend the interview with my fiancée against the advice in previous reviews saying they would not let you in. This is true because as we approached the security check point, I was told that only my fiancée was allowed to enter. I explained that I was the petitioner and wanted to accompany her. They still said no. Still I'm glad I went as I will later explain. At this point she gave me her purse as they would not let her in with it. I stayed outside waiting.
At around 12pm one of the assistants who makes sure all the paperwork is in line with what is needed came out calling my name. She then informed me that I was being called in as they wanted to interview me as well. At this time she also told... read complete review

Review Topic: General Review

My wife and I arrived just on time. We left the Guayaquil airport and took a taxi at about 8:30 am and it took the taxi driver about one hour to take us to the consulate (“atajo”).
Once at the consulate, my wife (the petitioner) was not allowed to get in. The guards told us that this is a new policy that was implemented a few weeks ago. I had read in a few reviews people recommending that the petitioner attends the interview. Don´t waste your money. They will not let the petitioner in. We argued for a little while with the guards about my wife´s right to be inside (as an American citizen) but they just ignored what we said.
Once inside (after passing the security check) I waited for about an hour to be allowed to get into the building. Once inside the building, I realized there were too many people applying for resident visas. About 100 waiting.
After about two more hours my name was called to a window. An Ecuadorian woman (dark hair, probably in her 50´s)... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My husband and I arrived early to the interview and were allowed in. There was not a line to go through both security checkpoints, at that time. When we entered we were told to sit in the waiting area and listen for my husband's name to be called. We were called about an hour after arriving to a window where a lady took our paperwork, proof of marriage, and fingerprints. She asked a few questions and she was kind of rude. and impatient Then we were told to sit again and listen for my husband's name for his interview. His name was called about 30 mins after. The interview was held at another window. The guy that was interviewing us was nice, calm, and joked around. He asked us how we met and even gave him the advice to get his citizenship before moving abroad. That interview only lasted for about 5 mins. He told us we were approved at the end of the interview. His passport was ready to be picked up at the DHL office about a week later. You cannot bring cell phones or electr... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My husband and I traveled to Guayaquil for our interview. Once we got to the consulate I was not allowed to enter for there were to many people and I had to wait outside. This bothered me a bit, I believe the interview is for both of us, but there was nothing I could do. Once he entered a heap load of people had the same interview time and date, which made him take a VERY long time. At first they asked him for some additional information on our sponsor (which I don't understand why they didn't ask for before the interview) and sent him to the vice-consular to receive an official letter stating that we required that information. Once he got to the vice-consular, the man was VERY rude to him, he treated him like a criminal for no reason, he even made stuff up without proof. He told my husband that "he probably didn't even know the sponsor" (the sponsor is a friend of mine, and yes, my husband knows him. Besides the fact that there is no obligation for the sponsor to be a family member or... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

10:30am Interview
Waited for two hours!
Called to window, requested documents (only i-485 and taxes; criminal certificate and medical sealed envelope.
Asked questions like:
Was your wife born here in Ecuador?
Do you both have children together?
When youvisited the US on a tourist visa, did you stay longer than 6 months?
The officer pulled out the original I-130 packet with all the pictures/relationship evidence and said, “wow you have a book!” my husband sband replied “my wife is very detailed oriented” haha
And he was approved!!!
<3 Very happy!!!
