Review Topic: K1 Visa

Let me share my experience of the K1-Visa at the France US Embassy. I did my interview today, May 5th 2021.

I am Portuguese, so I will comment on my experience and what was the necessary documents for a Portuguese Citizen. If you are not Portuguese the required documents or what they check could be different.

Embassy sends an email 3 weeks before the appointment.
You should book your medical appointment 15 days before your interview. The embassy says that you will get an envelope with the medicals but that information is outdated. After your medical they send the results by email to the embassy (If you do the medical in Lisbon). You don't receive anything. The medical exam is: Blood analysis, eye exam, chest x-ray, check your vaccines and do a general touch on your whole body to see if you have any lumps.

The police certificate is a document that you can get online. You pay by card and you are able to download the document. The docum... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

I ended up arriving at the consulate about 1h before and was told they would only start admitting us 30’ before the scheduled time. There were 2 security checks before getting into the building.

Once in, I was asked to show my DS260 confirmation and take out my police certificates. She put a sticker on the back of my passport and directed me to a window where a woman was reviewing documents before the actual interview. There were 3 people ahead of me, which took c.45’.

At the window, the lady only took my original police and marriage certificates, as well as my long form birth certificate and translation. She then asked for a picture and the printout of my appointment registration.

The wait before the actual interview was short, the officer asked whether I wanted to continue in French or English and asked me to raise my hand and swear to tell the truth.

The line of questioning started around biographical questions, e.g... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My husband had a good experience in Paris in the beginning of March. His interview was at 10:15, and my husband showed up to the Embassy around 9 am. There were five or so people in front of him. A US official called in people who were waiting for notarial or passport services until about 9:30, then visa appointments started being admitted. It was not very crowded at all, and he did say one spouse was asked to wait outside while her husband had his interview (it was unclear if she was American or not, but assuming this is a Covid precaution).

After going through security, my husband first met with a desk official/agent who checked that he had brought the correct documentation for the interview. They did check to make sure he had translations (even though as a citizen of France they were not required to be submitted with the DS260). He was then ushered to another officer, and then finally a third person, the consular officer who conducted the interview.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Very smooth experience.

I went there 30min before, passed security and entered the embassy building. Then a person helps you prepare the documents you need for the first booth.

First booth:
they recheck your identity and the documents (DS160, photo, police certificate, birth certificate, letter of intent of marry, medical case and proof of payment for your interview), and prepare your case folder that the officer will later review. Also there's a finger scan. Then you sit down.

Second booth:
They call your name, you go to the booth (it's not an interview room but a simple booth), they ask you if you wanna do it in English, I said yes. Most (if not all) people before me did it in French. First you swear that you're gonna say the truth, scan your fingers. The the officer ask your some questions. Why do you want to go to the US, How did you meet? Do you have a picture of your first meeting? Have you lived abroad?... nothing compli... read complete review
