Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

The interview was straightforward, just to give you some background info my wife is a dual citizen, Kenyan and American. She went to school in the US for undergrad, worked a bit then came back to Kenya and has been living here for the past 5 years.

On the day of the interview we arrived early and parked our vehicle at Warwick center next door to the embassy. After the short walk to the embassy, went through security where they retain all your electronics (so carry some reading material since you will not have your phone with you) after which you are directed to the 'reception' desk where they confirm your appointment and provide you with a ticket number. You then take a seat in the outside waiting area and wait for your number to be called. The numbers go in sequence so you can estimate when you will be called. After about an hour my number is called and we go up to the counter and a Kenyan lady collects our documents. This include birth certificate and copy, marriage ce... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

As others have said this is a very tough Embassy with good reason. Just understand all the Visa overstays and fraudulent documents of Kenyans and others who have come to the USA and overstayed and you will understand the skepticism of Counselor Officials. No phones, bags of any kind are allowed in the Embassy interviewing. We were are a same-sex (gay) couple. We requested anonymity in the interview (like a separate room) as Kenyans tend to be homophobic. It was not a worry as no one really seemed to be listening.
After the usual waiting for 15 minutes, I was called, finger printed and sworn. The Counselor Official asked me a lot of questions: How we met, what did my fiance do, how many times we saw each other (total of 7 times) after 2013. So we had a history, locations, what he liked in cuisine, dislikes, year of birth etc. She wanted chat records, affidavit of support, photos as well which she kept.As I said lot of questions. At the end, she approved and gave me a sheet on rel... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

I've written and submitted this 3 times now! Hopefully this one works. Husband is from Uganda, but no immigrant visas issued from Kampala, so all are routed to Nairobi, Kenya.
We have a solid relationship, and have lived together in Uganda since day 1 of our relationship. No red flags, our only period apart was for 6 months while I came to USA to file the I-130 and work to get funds for immigrating.
Anyway, consular officer in Nairobi already had a denial letter on her desk when my husband entered the booth.
Fortunately, we had a GIGANTIC binder of documents and proof, so everything she asked for, including things not required or requested by them, he was able to pull out and hand over to her. He said she was impressed but also looked slightly disappointed by how prepared we were, like it was a bummer to her that dhe didn't get to deny him.
She asked him many, many questions. Some we're normal, how we met, etc. Others we're invasive (how did he feel abou... read complete review
