The interview went very well. It was at 1 pm, I arrived 30 minutes early but they only let you in 10 minutes prior to the interview. You then walk in and leave any electronics in the first checkpoint, then walk to a second building and go through a second checkpoint. You get a number and wait for the number to be called. They first ask for some of the paperwork you brought with you and you give them your fingerprints as well. Then you seat and wait for a second officer to call you by name (this is the interview portion) - the questions were very straight forward (where/when did we meet? when was the last time we saw each other? does my fiance know Spanish? etc), he asked to see more pictures which I had in hand.

I didn't get approval that day because they hadn't received my medical examination, but today (Oct. 17) I checked the CEAC website and it states my visa was 'Issued'. !!!

My biggest take-aways:

• Bring a paper copy of the P4 email with you. My fiancée’s name wasn’t on the list as having an interview that day and having that printout was the only reason why we were not turned away.

• If the beneficiary has long hair, please read the passport photo instructions closely, and make sure that his/her ears are visible in the photo.

• Bring cash, just in case. $5 bills, $1 bills, or “moneda.” There’s a machine for passport photos that accepts bills, and there’s also a vending machine. The Security Guards there are very nice and helpful, but they don’t always have change.

• Organize your documents in the manner that they request you to do so in the P4 email. If you can find an “accordion style” folder with the tabs, that is very helpful.

• Bring a book, magazine, or a sketchpad. They don’t get in a hurry to do ANYTHING there. 

We arrived about 30 mins early. When we arrived the men at the entry gate told us to wait there. There was a large group of us waiting outside there in front of the gate until we could enter, about 45 mins. Finally, when they allowed us to enter we walked up a hill to the buildings above. There we passed through security and were not allowed to bring anything besides the binders we had for the interview. Don’t bring the medical cd, you can’t bring it in. Then we entered in another building and were told to take a number. We waited about 20 mins until our number was called. We went to the window and the woman asked for all of our paperwork. We turned in everything that we were told to bring in the email from the embassy. Then we were told to sit down and wait for the beneficiary’s name to be called. We waited about 20 mins and when they called his name we both went to the window, however they told me, the petitioner, that the interview would only be with the beneficiary. He did t... read complete review

The issued of my visa was delayed because the medical results was not in the embassy the day of my interview. There is only two officially doctors in the city, then is difficult to get an medical appointment with enough time before the interview. The interview was simple and fast.
