Review Topic: K1 Visa

I have to say, I had a very poor experience going for my K1 interview here.

I was scheduled for 1pm - Arrived at 12:45 and everything went smoothly as other reviewers have mentioned. No electronics can be brought in, have to go through metal detectors, and so on.

Got in to the actual waiting area which is a large room with some seating - interviews were to the right and other issues (mainly for US citizens, it seemed) were to the left. I went right and waited in a queue. There were two interviews in front of me.

It was very inefficient. My interview was due to take place at 1pm, as I said, but didn't actually take place until about 3pm. There is nothing to entertain yourself with for the hours that you'll be there, which is a shame, but not that bad in the grand scheme of things. The interviews take place at a window, similar to a bank, and you can hear pretty much everything that's said between the Immigration Officer and the person they ... read complete review

We had to reschedule our interview due to circumstances. Embassy was very accomodating and were able to reschedule, date given suited us and was the best available for the given timeline. Interview process 2nd time around lasted 1hr and was very straight forward.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my interview on the 30th of November and was approved!! It’s definitely not as scary as it seems and goes smoothly once you had the correct paperwork.

My appointment was at 1pm and I arrived at 12:50. I was brought into the security room and put my belongings in a tray. It was very much like airport security. The guards put my mobile phone in a locker and gave me the key to be worn around my neck and directed me to the right of the building where I met another police officer who directed me to the visa processing. At this point I was the only person in the room but it’s soon started to fill up with 4 other visa applications behind me and about 8 people waiting for passports on the other side of the room.

I was called to the desk after about 10 mins to hand in my documents. He asked for:
• passport
• 2 pictures
• DS-160 page
• birth cert
• police cert
• affidavit of support ( I-134)

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Finally I get to give a review, and it's a good one (Yay to approval). Shout-out to all the other couples leaving reviews and information, you helped calm my nerves.
Overall, the whole process was smooth and incredibly fast. My appointment was at half one and I was out of the embassy by 1.50.
I first arrived 20 minutes before my appointment time and was told to come back 10 minutes beforehand. Once inside, I went through security, similar to airport security. I had to take off my shoes (doc martens made the scanner go off). I was then pointed in the right direction to the document intake.
The lady behind the counter was really friendly and helped calm the nerves. She tooked all of the required documentation - birth cert (original and photocopy), police cert, sealed medical results (she handed me back CD of chest x-ray), affidavit of support and supporting documents, passport, and recent passport photos. She asked me general questions eg fiance name, dob, my countr... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my visa interview on August 27th, 2021 and my experience was very pleasant. My advice for anyone going in is to be very calm and collective as it is not as scary as everyone makes it out to be. As long as your relationship is genuine you will have nothing to worry about.

I arrived for my appointment approx. 10-15 mins before my scheduled time. I had to click the button at the front window to check in (which I didn’t know at first until someone else waiting in line showed me). Once checked in the security guards brought me in and I went through airport-like security. My phone and keys were left in a lock box and they gave me a visitors lanyard with the key attached. I was directed to the right had side of the embassy for my interview.

When you walk into the room it is very similar to a tax office, with little booths for the embassy staff and public to face each other, there was glass separating the two of you and a microphone was used for communic... read complete review
