Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

my interview took place on March 4, 2020 at 8:45 a.m. we arrived around 8:15 a.m. but we only entered the embassy at 8:45 a.m. before being able to enter in.
At the embassy the guards present in the tent checked my bag and if I had a phone. then always in the tent there is a counter where I gave to a woman the following documents on her request:

passport, extract of criminal record, the page of confirmation of appointment where is the address of shipping of the visa. and the Ds-260 confirmation page

we then pass through a room where our belongings are scanned and we pass under a detector like at the airport. you are asked to put all electronic devices in a security pouch. we will give you a badge to collect them at the end.
once in the embassy i waited about 5 minutes before being called to a counter where i was slightly yelled at due to a misunderstanding between the agents who refer in the embassy and the agent at the counter. <... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My interview was scheduled for 10.45am this morning. I arrived 1 hour early.

Outside, the guards checked my bag, asked me if I had a phone and made me turn it off, then the first check point asked me for my passport, my criminal records and my DS-160. He put a sticker on the back of my passport' checked the papers and gave me all back telling me to give them to his colleagues inside.

Then I went through the second checkpoint where they checked my bags and asked me for my phone, keys and lipsticks/makeup. They put everything in a little plastic bag with a number on it and gave me a sort of pass with the same number to pick my stuff up on my way out.

Then I really entered the embassy, went straight ahead following the "Visa" sign, they guided me to the next booth available, where they asked me for my address and phone number, as well as the papers + passport I already had in hands, my birth certificate, my divorce decree and my fiancé's, the... read complete review

Review Topic: General Review

We got married in a different country from our own. Mine, US, her's, France and this cost us extra delays and hassles from both governments.

Since we lived in New Zealand for one year we needed a police report from this country for my wife. I did not know this while filling out all the paper work. I thought we did it all.
We had her PR from France, but he immi officer wouldn't let this slide even though her France record was squeaky clean. We understood. Who know's? If you let it go on one person, why not let it go on all.

I couldn't be in there with her so I only found out later. We were heartbroken, we had all the hope that we would fly back together. More heartbreak was to come unrelated to the embassy.

They did their job. It didn't work in our favor, but they fulfilled screening prospective immigrants correctly.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My fiancé scheduled an interview at 10:45a and arrived at 9:30a to go through security checks. With the craziness going on in Paris he wanted to be sure to arrive early just in case. He didn’t call me until 11:52a to let me know we’ve been approved.

The process has been the same as the previous reviewers:
Arrived early
Security check
First document check
Wait to be called

The officer that interviewed my fiancé only asked him a few questions.

1. Where did you meet?
2. Show me your favorite pictures and why

He didn’t look over my w-2, our I-134 or anything.

My fiancé said they kept his passport which I think is normal since he will be issued his visa.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My interview was scheduled for 8.30 AM today. I arrived at 8 and stayed in a line (outside) until 8.30 when they started letting us in.
First : security check
Second : first (quick) document check
Third : documents submission (they only took originals of my civil documents : birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree, police record) + biometrics
Fourth : actual interview - super friendly and easy going.
Questions :
1. Where are you currently working? What kind of job is this? ("it will be super easy for you to find work in the US")
2. What is your husband doing?
3. When did you meet and how?
4. How many people were attending your wedding?
5. Where did you like to live better Paris or Zagreb (my hometown in Croatia)? (I think this one is just to chat while he is processing documents lol)
He said at one point, everything looks perfectly fine and your visa is APPROVED. You should be receiving yo... read complete review
