Review Topic: K1 Visa

In Italy it works that only the embassy of Naples release the K1 visas, and when you book the interview through their website, they automatically book the medical the day before the interview itself.
The medical is done at a clinic called Varelli and it costs 220 euros.

Here’s my experience of the medical - Naples Italy - 11.02.2020

I’ve booked the cab the night before with the app FreeNow that worked perfectly. I get at Varelli very early in the morning around 6.40 because even though they say the appointment is at 8am, it’s better getting there early, in fact I was the number 2 of the line. After a little wait they start to call you in a room where they take your passport and start to fill some forms on their computer.
Then new wait, and another lady called me into another room where she took out my blood (you don’t need to fast btw) and gave me a little cup for the urine sample. In Italy they only check for sexual related diseases... read complete review

Hopefully this review will help some of you.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience.

Location:
Both the doctor’s office and consulate were easy to find and offered parking (for those arriving by car).

Medical visit:
Everyone at Istituto Varelli was very friendly and upbeat. We were in and out in about 2 hours.
My husband’s visit was the standard €220. If you need vaccinations, you'll pay additional fees. If it's flu season, you'll be required to get the flu-shot.

-Have your vaccination record with you. You can get your vaccination records from your local ASL or doctor.
-When entering the doctor’s office, it’s best to arrive as early as possible. My husband and I arrived at 7:00 a.m. and were let in right away.
-Don’t forget to locate the number machine and to push ‘’C’’ for consulate when entering the medical... read complete review

MEDICAL VISIT at ISTITUTO DIAGNOSTICO VARELLI (Naples)

The instructions say that applicants are expected to arrive at 8:00am for the medical examination. I was in front of the Varelli by 6:45am and I already had 3 people waiting in front of me. The place opened at 7:00am and I went inside. I found a ticketing machine and I pressed "Consulate". My number was C1 and a young lady started calling for people that were there for the consulate. I sat in a waiting room and then they called me from one of the rooms nearby.
Exams in order:
1. Blood test;
2. They sent me to the bathroom to collect an urine sample;
3. They checked my DS-160 confirmation page, they took 4 out of the 6 passport style pics, they checked my vaccines/immunization records, they asked for my address in Italy, my future address in the US and my e-mail address. Unfortunately after they checked my vaccines records, I was missing the one for influenza (it wasn't available at the ti... read complete review

Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing

My visa was approved yesterday! Overall, it was a pleasant experience, and staff, both at the clinic and the consulate, were super friendly.

HOTEL: I stayed at Hotel Mergellina (Via Giordano Bruno 115 Napoli) which is just a 5-minute walk from the consulate and the metro station; staff were really helpful and were able to call a driver for me very early in the morning to go to my medical examination appointment. The hotel is very close to a famous pizzeria where I had the best pizza ever. Mine was a solo trip as my husband is currently deployed. If you are, like me, a spouse of a deployed member of the military, you can attend your interview without the petitioner.

MEDICAL EXAMINATION: I went to the medical appointment an hour earlier the time indicated on the instruction received after my I-130 was approved, and I was already third in line. I would highly recommend that you come there early so you don't have to wait too much. I was out around 9:15. First... read complete review
