Review Topic: K1 Visa

Well it’s alarming that the US embassy in Paris, France does not offer sooner interview dates for K-1 visas. I guess the policy is that student visas are processed first. Our NOA2 approval was processed and accepted by the NVC then sent to the US Embassy around 4/14/2019. This process has been draining and disheartening. I would hope to give them a better rating if they were able to respond back quickly but there are too many holidays and other things happening there. I can only imagine the work load is high.

My appointment was at 10:45am, I went to the first security check on the outside of the embassy at 10:30am, then a lady put in order some papers : Passport, DS-160, medical and police certificate. After that there is a second security check where you have to leave your phone.

Once inside, there is a "visa" sign, got in line, only one person before me, and then went to the first window. In addition to the documents cited above, the officer asked me for my birth certificate and 2 pictures. He took my fingerprints and gave me a copy of my I-129F approved. Then he told me to go sit and wait for them to call my name.

I was called around 30 minutes later. The officer was extremely nice ! He asked me to raise my right hand and take the oath and also took my fingerprints again. He then started to ask me some questions, in french, I was surprised as I was ready to speak english with him, but all the interview was in french. Only a few questions :
- How did ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Portuguese K1 had to go to Paris for my interview.
Spent the whole morning there (around 3h) because I was the absolute last person interviewed (they had 6 people processing French citizens and only 1 person processing Portuguese citizens).
Overall it went quite well, the interview part lasted about 5 minutes.
First, a lady processed my case, asked for my medical exams, photos, certificate of birth and passport as well as the Chronopost envelope to send my stuff back. Then I went straight to the consular officer which asked me 4 or 5 questions, mainly what did I work at, how did we meet, etc. Very chill. He then told me I was approved right away.
It has been two weeks now and I still haven't got the envelope with the passport and the documents so freaking out a bit. Hopefully I will know something soon.
Good luck!

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My appointment was at 11 am.

1st window : French lady asked me: 2 pictures, my birth certificate, police report, medical envelop sealed, my judgment of divorce and his judgment of divorce (but she saw that they already had it).
She asked me few questions about my background.

Then, she told me to wait until they call my name for the interview.

Less than 5 mn later, they called me and asked me some questions:
How and where we met? Our last trip together? My previous trips in us? Questions about my other citizenship? Kids or not for both of us? Previous marriage for both of us? ( it took about 15/20 mn)

Made the oath and he told me that we are approved.
Receiving the visa within 2 weeks

Around 45 mn I spent in total at the embassy.

My fiance was able to enter with me inside but they didn't allow him to stay for the interview.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Hi all, so I went to my interview on the 8th scheduled at 9:30am.
I was there at 9am at the main gate, had to go through security let my phones and earphones power bank. I had a small pocket with electronics so I just gave them the whole thing. Very nice people welcoming you.

then you get into the building the security officers will tell you where to go so no worries.
Ground floor, you have this room, I told the lady I was there for k-1 and she asked me to just sit and they will call me. It was like 9:10
Inside it is counter where you just stand there and talk through the window I was very surprised. I expected a more formal interview sit down with an officer and so on..

Then I was called at the counter 7 where the man requested those documents:
- beneficiary's birth certificate + translation + copy
- police certificates (France + Singapore)
- asked me if I lived somewhere else other than France and Singapore... read complete review
