Review Topic: K1 Visa

Medical : I had my medical scheduled at the Euroclinic 2 weeks prior to my interview date. It all went pretty fast and easy, all the necessary vaccinations were made there. Just had to go to the pharmacy and buy them. If you have health insurance which would cover those expenses (like IKA) make sure you'll bring your health booklet. X-Ray and blood tests are done and will be all send directly to the embassy.
Embassy: Interview was scheduled for 8:30am. We (my daughther on K2 and me) left the building at 12:45pm. So it all takes a few hours but didn't seem that long since they keep calling you for several things. And it took an hour to get through security check because they only take one or two persons in at the time and we were about 40 people waiting to get in. Most of them for temporary visa though and they were all scheduled for 8 or 8:20am. If you don't want to wait till last like we did, you should tell the security lady out there that you are there for immigrant visa. see... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

The people working at the Embassy are so friendly!I have been going to that Embassy since 2008 getting all sort of visas like a J-1 (exchange visitor), a few B-2 (tourist), and F-1 (international student), and every single time I have been treated great. Today, both ladies (Greek and American) were awesome and they practically asked the same questions; however, I wouldn't really stress over it - they were simple questions that you could definitely answer if you are in a serious relationship. The only downside to it was that they hadn't received my medical, so they now have to reach out to Iaso General for them to send them(medical), and then issue my Visa. Also, make sure you bring a book etc and eat beforehand because you will spend at least three hours there.... My appointment was at 8:30 and I didn't walk out of there till 11:30 am. All in all, it all went smoothly!

MEDICAL!

I had my medical done at Iaso General a couple of days ago. When I booked my interview I was told by the doctor that I should get my flu shot before my medical appointment with him; my app was at 10:30am, so I got there about 30 mins early just to be safe! Mr Doumazos was very polite and asked me a few questions regarding my fiance and I just so he could break the ice. Once he filled in the vaccination checklist and examined me, he gave me a receipt and then I had to go downstairs to get my blood test done, and then head over to Building A to get the final part of the medical: the X-ray! The whole process took about two hours and went really smoothly!

My interview experience at the Athens embassy was relatively pleasant.
You are asked to turn your phones off and hand over all electronic devices and leave them in the security area before proceeding to the waiting room.

My advice here, bring a book or magazine because the wait is quite long. There were only 5 of us in the waiting room all in all for immigrant visas and I was there for close to 4 hours! Or even better, strike up a conversation with the nearest person, trust me it will make the time go by quicker.

Once in the waiting room I was given a number by the security guard stationed there (she was very nice) and asked me to wait and keep my eyes on the screens.
After about 25mins later my number was called, and I was asked by the embassy employee to hand over my passport then told me to go back outside and wait.

About 40 mins later my number was called again and the same lady that took my passport asked me to sit down. ... read complete review
