Review Topic: K1 Visa

The usual process as mentioned by others - dont bring bags, some did bring in document bags, leave electronic valuables at security hut, waiting room/interview hatches etc.

There was a last-minute hitch with my DS160 doc and the Embassy were helpful - called me before arriving to highlight issue, facilitating change, allowing me to delay arrival time past the 8am appointment.

I was at the embassy from about 9:20 to 10:15. A few more arrived after me. Overall, Id guess about 30 candidates being processed for various visa types on the morning, perhaps an off-peak time of year.

K1 questions were straightforward about how we met, communicated, our families, work etc.

Just a general note on the K1 visa process at the Dublin embassy as I encountered it, don't see this written elsewhere:
Within a few days of Embassy receiving paperwork from State Dept they emailed us a 14 page PDF with info on docs to prep for interview ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Interview was scheduled for 10:30am but I received a phone cal the day before asking me to come in at 10:00am. I arrived at the embassy 15minifes early, went through the security and was sent to the consular section. Gave my name and sat down for around 39 minutes, then I was called up to give my documents and was told my photos wouldn’t be accepted due to there not having enough space above my head in the photo.

I was given a return slip and told to go to a local chemist to get the retaken.
I was back in the embassy in 10 minutes and went straight back to the window and we continued the process.

I then sat down and waited for my name to be called for the interview.

I wasn’t called until 12:45! So it was a fairly nervewracking wait but the interview itself a fairly nonevent. I was asked who petitioned for me, how did we meet, when have we met each other, he did ask me and asked every other K1 applicant for photos of us together... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I was extremely lucky that I was given an interview appointment after they had a cancellation. When in contact with the embassy regarding my appointment I asked them to please put me on a cancelation list, the following Monday morning I got a call to say they had a cancellation for the next day and I took it.

The interview was very quick and relaxed. I was in and out of there in around 30/40 mins. The questions were all very conversational, I was quite nervous going in but everyone there made me feel very at ease. All of my answers were honest and never questioned further, he just responded with simple nods and okay. I was told I was approved there and then!!

Some questions I was asked (that I can remember)
• Explain how you met and the progression of your relationship.
• Why did I choose to move to the U.S. and not him choosing to move to Ireland?
• Do we have any wedding plans?
• What is my work and what work will I pl... read complete review
