I had a great experience with my IR1 visa interview with a short waiting and interview time. The officer's main question was why I had not applied earlier, and when I answered him that it was due to the 2-year residency rule of my Fulbright scholarship, he sympathized with me! He did not ask me to review the originals of my documents and accepted a missing document via email. I submitted it about three days later, and my visa was approved and printed within the next 3 weeks. During the time prior and after the interview, the consular officers corresponded with me via email if something was needed, and they responded to my questions very promptly.

The whole process at the Embassy lasted about 45 minutes.
My advice is to be early enough as it works in first come and first served basis.All people waiting for interview were sitting in the order they arrived( I arrived second,one hour before the interview).
Initially, a Greek lady asked me my name,my parents’ names and how long I was married.She also asked me about my job and my husband’s job.
She took my two photos and told me to sit down and wait to be called by consular.
About 15 minutes later consular called me and she asked me what we have in common with my husband,what is his job.
The consular was a very friendly and young lady.
She also asked me what do I think about life in US and what does my husband’s brothers think of this marriage.
Then she asked me to show her any photos from our relationship and wedding.
And that was it.
I was confident and smiling.
I noticed she was looking at my face expressi... read complete review

They had some questions because I was a refugee to Greece and had been arrested. They needed more documentation on that so we went into AP. We originally brought the wrong paperwork. Call or email the embassy if you have any questions about what papers to bring; they are very nice and helpful!

We eventually mailed the correct paperwork in, went for a second interview and were approved!

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!

Review Topic: K1 Visa

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
