Review Topic: K1 Visa

Our interview was on 01/31/20 and the time was scheduled for 8:00 am. My fiancé and I arrived 30 minutes early, but we were let in. I have read about cases where people had to wait until the scheduled time, but that did not seem to be the case with us.

As many have written before, you first have to register and then you will be sent to a window where they take your passport etc. Then, you receive a number and have to wait a bit, until you are called to another window, where they compare your data and make sure your name etc. is correct. I had a different birth name then my current name since my parents married when I was a child, so they asked me about that, but it was no problem since I had a document proving the name change.

Our interview took around 5-10 minutes. Our officer was friendly, but not as hyper friendly as some people have described.
The questions were:

When did you meet?
Did you live abroad?
How long di... read complete review

Review Topic: General Review

I had my interview on March 3rd 2020.
In Frankfurt, you have to wait outside first before you can go through security. I waited for around 50 minutes, which was fine, because it was sunny and I had a warm jacket and a scarf with me. So you should bring warm clothing and an umbrella, just in case it starts raining. I had to go to the left line first and I needed to show them my passport and they gave me a waiting number. Then they told me to line up for security at the end of the right line.
I went through security and they told me I couldn’t take my x-ray cd with me, which my doctor told me to bring to the interview. But it wasn’t a problem, since they just gave me a number and kept it for me in exchange.
You can’t bring any sorts of electronics so leave you phone or laptop in the car/hotel/at home.
After passing security, I went on a small path from the security building to the actual consulate building, where a woman at a reception welcomed me, t... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

In general, the process at the embassy is pretty self-explanatory - you will know what to do if you listen and follow the directions from the people at the consular

I had my interview early in the morning and I was there 20 min before the appointment. First advice: During this time of the year, bring warm clothes because you will be waiting outside for a while before you get to go inside. I checked in with my passport + appointment confirmation and got a ticket with a number on it (keep this ticket on you). I was then asked to go to the next line (still outside) where I waited to enter the first building. This is the security check. (No phones - leave them at home/in the car!) After security, I walked to the main building.
In the main building, I went to the receptionist that told me to go directly to a booth. Notice that the main building is split into an "immigration" and "non immigration" area. For K1, everything happens in the immigration ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my interview at 10 am and went to the embassy around 9.30 am. I first had to go to the left line for the Visa applicants and someone crossed my name from a list with all the people that had interviews today. After that I got a number and had to go to the right line for the U.S. citizens. I waited about 30 minutes and was called in to go through a security check (I didn’t had my phone or anything with me that wasn’t allowed so i went through without any problems). The officers told me to go to the next building to check in. There I had to tell why I’m there and had to go to the window with the number 22. When I went to the window there was a man that told me what’s gonna happen and kept my passport with my file that I sent in after the package 3 and told me to sit down until my number will be on the screen. After maybe 15 minutes a very nice lady called me and went in German (English is possible too) through the most important parts from my DS-160 with me again to check if... read complete review
