Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

I contacted the consulate about changing the date of my interview, and they were extremely accommodating and nice about it. I ended up having my interview at Kaisaniemi the week before they were moving back to Kaivopuisto. I went there just 5 minutes before my scheduled time and was buzzed in immediately. As has been said previously, the wait after that was long and we were all kept in the hallway. I'd say there were close to 10 of us there. One by one we were called in - me being the last one. Inside I went through security and was escorted to a waiting area. There were still a couple of people there waiting. I got called up to be fingerprinted and then sent back to wait again. I ended up being the last one to be called up to actually have my interview, and that wait was a wee bit unpleasant as the waiting area felt like a fish tank with all eyes on me. Anyway, I got to talk to a super nice lady who asked me some pretty basic questions. The interview was over in probably five minutes ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my Visa interview this Monday at the consulate in Helsinki. First of all, it was easy to find. I walked a short walk from the train station and the door to the consulate was situated between Robert's Coffee and Steam cafe. Because I was over an hour early I went inside a cafe to wait since they don't let you in until right before your appointment time. There were a lot of people standing outside with folders in their hands close to 9 am. My appointment was at 10am.

9:57 I pressed the buzzer at the door and told the machine who I was and why I was there. The voice asked me when my appointment was and I told them and I was let in because it was almost 10am. They adviced me to go through the doors (both the front door and the next one work with the buzzer so I went through them quickly so I wouldn't get stuck in between haha) and to the second elevator on the right. Confusing thing was I could only see one elevator but then a sign on the wall said "consulate 5th floo... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My appointment was at 9am and I arrived at 8.50am to Kaisaniemi. I had to wait outside in the staircase for about 20 minutes with a bunch of other people. After I was called in, I had to go through a security check and had to leave everything but my papers at the coat check.

After that I was showed into the waiting room, where I spend the next 25 minutes mostly waiting for my turn. I was first called to bring my passport, medical info and a printout of completing the form DS-260 to one Finnish speaking clerk. After that I was called to give my fingerprints to another Finnish speaking clerk. Then last I was called for an interview.

The interview took less than 5 minutes, and was mostly friendly small talk. Here are the questions they asked:

-why are you moving to the U.S?
-how long have you been married?
-where did you meet? Which university?
-do you have kids? How many? Are they already citizens?
-where are you mo... read complete review
