Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

I can't get over how unprofessional my interview at the american consulate was.

The first step is to go a first booth, where they check documents before the interview.
They only asked for my passport, pictures, my marriage certificate, my birth certificate and my DS 260 confirmation page (which is about 1/10 of all the documents I had brought, not to mention copies and translations. But I can't really complain about this)
The lady I talked to didn't like my marriage certificate from Denmark. She didn't say it to my face but she talked about it with her colleague, saying how those weddings were Las Vegas style, and how this document was not super reliable.
Then she told me my birth certificate was too old. They needed one dating from less than 6 months. I was surprised because I have never read this anywhere. It's not mentioned on the official interview checklist PDF for exemple. What was mentioned though, is that they needed the original documents... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I came for a K1 visa interview on Sept 4. It was the earliest date I could pick when I scheduled it on May 28.
My appointment was at 11am, I arrived at 10:50 at the bag check outside the consulate.
A woman asked to see my appointment confirmation letter, passport and sealed medical enveloppe.
Then I went through security, had to turn off my phone and leave it there with my other electronic devices and my tube of hand cream..
I walked in the consulate and had to line for 25 min until I got to a window for an administrative review : the woman made me confirm some basic information, took the appointment confirmation letter, passport, sealed medical enveloppe and asked for the birth certificate, police certificate, 2 ID pictures and a letter as my fiancé emailed then wrote a letter to the consulate and asked for an extension of our expired petition as we were not able to schedule the interview before that. I was given a whole copy of the petition file, even wit... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Some feedback on my interview at the Paris Embassy :

Appointment at 10am so I got there around 9.35am. They make you wait in line in front of the embassy, around 9.45 they let the people "in". You go Under a "tent" for a precheck (they check your bags, ask to turn off your phone, be careful as laptops are not allowed!), then you go to a desk where people put your paperwork in order. Then you go Inside the building, with another security check (this one is like at the airport). You will have to give them your phone, electronics, chargers, usb key, keys… They give you a number in exchange).

Then you go in, and you follow the line for visa and you wait for the first step :

I waited around 45 minutes, then you go to a desk and they ask to confirm name, phone number and adress. They also asked me for my passport, 2 ID pictures, Birth certificate, wedding certificate, police certificate.
After that, they make you go wait in another un... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Interview lasted about 3 minutes. The consular was very friendly and didn’t make me panic whatsoever. He asked me to tell him about “how I met my fiancé, what he does for a living, why I like him, what do my parents think of him, show him my favorite picture of us... Everything looks good to me & your visa has been approved. Congratulations!”

Review Topic: General Review

Interview went faster and easier than expected. A lot of the prepared documents weren’t asked for. The agent asked a few questions about me to my beneficiary fiancé and then he said we were approved! The whole interview took around 5 minutes. When you enter the embassy you immediately give the documents they ask for and then you wait to be called to speak to the agent.
