Review Topic: K1 Visa

First thing first you'll melt under the sun if you go during the summer, you must wait outside the guard house because you must pass through security check one by one and it will take about 1 hour.
Inside the waiting room there are seats and air conditioner, toilette, passport pictures kiosk, visa fee atm and a vending machine.
For those whom apply for a k1 visa I suggest to take the tax returns of the petitioner anyway even if not self employed and print the visa fee receipt and if you do so you'll turn will last 3..4 minutes maximum, it was a torture to wait hours for other people having lack of documents, I'm been waiting 6 hours and half for just 20 persons before me and 4..5 employers working so hard, each ppl lost more than 20 minutes some of them even 1 hour, only those who have all that the embassy wants in the instructions will end their turn in few seconds and get the visa approved, the others will just make everything so long for themselves and for others wait... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Overall: very pleasant, the staff is nice and the process smooth (if you are on VisaJourney!)

As stated previously, the interview process lasts two days. I hope my review can provide some further insights to people that like me are a bit anxious! lol

Day 1: Medical Exam at Istituto Varelli

*Documents asked at the Medical Interview:
- PASSPORT!
- 4 pictures (fototessera 5x5)
- vaccines record (you can get them for free at your local ASL or ULSS)
- case number (the one that starts with NPL...)
- receipt of payment for the interview (where your case number is at - it's the confirmation email they send you)
- 220€ (I ended up paying 249 for the antitetano that had expired)
- your current address and the address where you will live in the US
Remember that you CAN have breakfast (no fasting required before the blood test)

I got an Airbnb near the US embassy, so I took a taxi... read complete review

Everything went smooth from the medical exam to the interview, very cordial and nice people.
I was asked alot of question about my relationship, the pre interview took like 30 minutes, then the final one around 5 minutes.
After that they said my visa was approved :D

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Whole procedure takes 2 days . 1st is medical examination and next day is interview at consulate.

Day 1. I took bus number C12 which goes not directly, but quite close to Instituto Varelli. I came first (had to wait another 20 min in front of closed door) as followed advises to come earlier. I also recommend to do so, as after 5 minutes after opening people start coming non stop. In reception you need to choose category C and I had ticket C1 and was first to be called.
Everything went fast. First they took you urine and blood, then they check you vaccination records (I am not from Italy, and document from my home country was accepted just fine), as i had all vaccines they took 220 eur and 4 passport photos and I went for TB check. Last step was to check my blood pressure, questionnaire about my health etc. Important, if you wear glasses or lenses take it!! I did not take my glasses and had bit of trouble to check my vision, but all in all we agreed with doctor th... read complete review
