Once we arrived at the Consulate, we had to wait outside the building for approximately 45 minutes (We were really early).

We then were called by an Officer to get in line, of which we were then split in two different lines, one for resident visa applications and the other for non-residential visas. Several questions to the officer later, he explained we had to rip open the medical envelope of my fiancee's since no closed envelopes are allowed inside the Consulate.

We were then allowed to go inside the building to again wait until everybody had gone through the metal detector as well as releasing any makeup, drinks, electronics, etc.. a la airport security. After, we were given a number to pickup our items once we were done with the interview. After security, we entered a large holden area with several chairs. However, we got there so early, that all we had to do was go directly to the second metal detector screening to finally enter the Visa Applicants ... read complete review

I will not give a detailed description of the US Consulate office since Mike did solid job of describing the place. Every detail he gave was a 100% accurate.

We were scheduled for our interview at 8:00 am and arrived at 7:30. My fiancťe forgot the two required photos in the hotel but luckily there was a man that approached us and offered to take pictures on the spot for $20. We then went through security check and got a number (207). We waited for about an hour and 15 minutes before we were called up. We were serviced by a female clerk. She asked for different documents. We had a hard time hearing here since she was behind a thick glass window and it seemed like the intercom was not working at all. We had to ask her to repeat herself several times which only made me more nervous than I already was. Also, she was not as friendly as I would have hoped. Once she collected all the forms she asked for our evidence supporting the validity of our relationship. She asked why we... read complete review

Our interview was scheduled for 8:00 am and we arrived at 7:45. We didn't know it until we got there but the Embassy opens at 7:30 and we were given number 206 (6th in line)at the second security check. The security checks are no different than going through the security at an airport, except as stated in previous reviews, no phones, water, etc. and they do have you open your medical envelope before entering. Once past the second security point, you sit in an air conditioned room (which was great since it was 95 degrees that day,lol). There are 6 windows and a separate door ( bulletproof glass, a small pass through tray and terrible microphone/speaker system). On this day 4 embassy employees working the windows. There are two restrooms and a small play area for children.
We waited about 1-1/2 hours before my fiancee's name was called and we both went up, introduced ourselves and passed along papers as the clerk asked for them. The clerk quickly learned that I don't speak a lot ... read complete review

Most of the reviews for this Embassy is quite long and detailed that cover the basics so I will keep mine brief and highlight the differences in my personal experience.

We showed up at the Embassy by 7:30 for our 8:00 appointment. There were a lot of people waiting when we arrived but this did not seem to hinder the process. I can't remember exactly but I think the whole process took about 2 hours.

The guard asked my Fiance his last name and shorty after that we lined up and went through security. They do not allow water, chap stick and things like that...they will check it and give you a number. One odd thing at this point was they asked my Fiance to go outside and open up the envelope that had the medical papers inside. Strange but did not seem to matter with the person in the interview, which I was a tad worried about the fact that they would not accept the forms in an open envelope. Once through security we were directed to a sit and wait to ... read complete review
