Review Topic: K1 Visa

The whole interview process was quick and easy. We had front-loaded out case with photos and other evidence which might have helped in the consulate officers having little to no questions to ask.

Here is an overview of the consulate experience:

My interview was scheduled for 8:45am. I arrived at the Citigroup building at 3:28am and took the elevator to the 3rd floor.

Once you exit the elevator you are greeted by a security officer who asked me what my purpose for visiting was. I replied by letting him know I was here for a K1 visa interview. He radioed the office and then told me to go through the security line. After going through the line I was told to put any electronic devices in my bad and he placed my bag and documents through an X-ray machine. He then instructed me to go through a metal detector. Afterwards I was given a card with a number and told to give him the card back once my interview was over. He placed my bag in a locker an... read complete review

I wasn't there personally but my fiance said that getting through security at the consulate took longer than the interview itself. Since he arrived early, he was the first one at the window. He said the officer was pretty friendly and asked the basic questions (i.e. what's your fiance's name, what does she do for a living, etc.). Funny story, the officer actually complemented my fiance on how organized all of our documents were (all thanks to VisaJourney!). My fiance was approved for the visa in less than 5 minutes and that was that.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

It was a pretty quick process to get in, do the interview, and out. There were a few others in line with me and we went to one window and dropped our passport and Large Foolscap Courier Self Addressed Courier Envelope then we went to the next window where a person asked a few questions about our relationship and our documents. Then they handed my documents to me and said I've been approved and it'll take about 2 weeks to get my passport with the visa back. All together it was about a 45-minute process.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my interview back in September 2019, I remember being quite nervous, I was allowed to take a book in but I managed to only read one page.
My Fiance and I waited approximately 45 mins to an hour, the interviewer asked simple questions about our relationship, maybe 4-5 of them before she went away to look at paperwork i presume.

I was approved and have never felt more relief in my life :P

Everyone there was absolutely wonderful and helpful, even after my blunder with the payment haha.

The staff were really nice. From the security guy who checked me in to the lady who interviewed me.
It was busy and I had to wait for 40 minutes after my scheduled interview time. It was fine because I brought a book to read.
Overall it was nice to leave with being approved!
