Exceptional service! The consular was very helpful the first time around that we had to file our petition. Now, second time we go through the process, and again, the first contact with the embassy was very helpful!

According to my Fiancee, her experience was the following.


She arrived at the consulate roughly an hour before her interview to prevent the possibility of being late. From what she explained, it was very similar to how the Department of Motor Vehicles operated in the U.S. You'd obtain a number, stand around, and wait for your number to appear upon a screen before a specific window where someone would assist you.

There was a moment where there was a group of people (including my Fiancee) whom had not been called by number. The faculty simply told everyone to stand in line to simply keep the process going. As my Fiancee finally made it to her turn, she spoke with the associate about her meeting with a CO. The associate apparently couldn't find her name on a list at first.

With a bit of insisting, the associate double checked and thankfully found it, to our delight.

Afterwards; She was brought to another window where... read complete review

#March 23 2017#
My appointment was on 8:30, I went in at 8:30 and I had to go in to a little room to talk to a Greek Consular and hand over documents like:

*Receipt
*Birth Certificate
*2x Photos
*Passport

She asked me some simple and short questions and then she told me to go wait at the waiting room for my interview with the American Consular. I waited for not more than 10 minutes, then my number was called. The Consular was a really polite woman, she put me under an OATH. The questions she asked me were:

*Where is your fiance now?
*How and where did you meet?
*When did you meet?
*When was the first time you met in person?
*How did the relationship go after you met in person?
*Have you ever been in the US? (answer was no) But you tried to go (I had applied for a tourist visa before and got denied because I had relationship with ny fiance)
*Has he met your fam... read complete review

Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing


** Update 15th June 2016 ** Scroll to the end


We are doing DCF in Athens, Greece. I am Greek and live in Athens, my husband the USC who has been living here (LPR) since 2013.
I want to make a few notes on translations: In the US Embassy Athens website, it states that documents not in Greek or English should be translated. This is repeated in form DS-2001.
** This is NOT true ** You need to translate ALL Greek documents and they will ONLY accept the translation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (10 Arionos str, Thissio).
In order for THEM to accept your original copies, you MUST have an Apostille (Sfragida tis Hagis) on each. The US Embassy does not require one BUT the Ministry will NOT accept them at all without it.
They are actually quite rude and the waiting time is VERY long.
Their translations are of very poor quality. Syntax and grammar is terrible and some sentences don't even make sense. Loads of spelling error... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Generally my experience with the American Embassy in Athens was very good. My interview was scheduled for 8.15am and I arrived there at least 45 minutes earlier just to be sure. There were already about 20 people waiting in lines. A polite and patient Greek police officer was right outside the building giving information and gathering the passports for the inside security. She kept saying to us that the arrival time should be at least 20 minutes prior to the interviews and not sooner (to avoid a long wait). When it was time, the officer allowed groups of 5 people at a time to enter the building. My turn was at least 45 minutes after my arrival. The whole procedure generally takes a long time so make sure you eat before you get there, because food is not allowed in the building. I first went through security and they asked if I had any electronic devices with me such as mobile phone. They also gave me my passport back. If you do have a mobile phone you must leave it with security until ... read complete review
