Very smooth process. You wait on the other side of the road until they let you in. Go through security and then sit down until they call you to the window. Wait time was less than 10 minutes. You go up to the window and give the person the documentation that she/he requests. Make sure that the police reports are original as well as the divorce certificate if you were married before.

3 days later they return any original documentation, passport, and the packet for the immigration officer at the point of entry to USA. Don't open the packet as this is for the immigration officer at the point of entry.

The overall interaction was friendly, efficient, and smooth. Excellent experience.

As others before me , reviewed the embassy process ,everything went well . No cellphones past the security booth . In the building a romanian lady checked my papers ,then I had to wait in a room with other couples . The american CO asked me if I want to have the interview in English but because of the stress I preferred to answer in Romanian . He asked me questions in English and looked through the pictures .We had a joint sponsor and submitted I 134 for my fiancee and I - 864 for the joint sponsor .
The embassy employees were all very polite and profesional . A very good experience !

My experience was very similar to a lot of the other reviews here. Due to nerves, I got to the embassy one hour early and waited across the street until the appointed time. At 1 PM, we crossed the street and two at a time, the security guard invited us in after checking our passports in order to confirm our appointment (my DS-160 was visible but he did not check it, probably because it was in sight).

Once inside, I was given a basket to put my belongings in and my phone had to be switched off. A scan followed. Any electronics were to be kept there and picked up upon return as we were all given little slips with a number on them but bags could be carried in. (I assume they will not allow big or voluminous bags however)

Once the security check was completed, I was directed to a second, bigger building inside. Right after entry, I was called to present my documents and have my fingerprints taken then told to take a seat in the waiting area. Since I was one of... read complete review

I have arrived 1.5h before appointment and decided to sit outside on the bench until 10:30am(my interview was scheduled on 28th August for 11:00am).

Before you enter the building, in front of the security search there will be a lady/gentleman asking for your appointment hour, passport, confirmation of interview and/or your DS160. They will guide you to the security check door.

The security check is similar to the one at the airport. All metals(belt too),phone and gadgets will be put in a tray(if you carry water with you, they will ask to take a sip to check if it is water and not something else). Once you get outside, you will see the main entrance and inside at the reception, the lady will ask again for your passport and DS160. She will stick a number on the DS and that will be your waiting number for the interview booth. The lady will guide where to go for you interview.
When you step out of the elevator, you walk left and then left again until y... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

We had our visa interview yesterday (August 22, 2018), so I wanted to share our experience. Overall I was incredibly impressed with the experience. The embassy was organized and efficient, the security and staff were all friendly and patient, and the wait was not bad at all.

Here's how things went down to the best of my recollection:

-Our appointment was for 1pm, so we (my wife and I) arrived around 12:45pm. We waited across the street in a bus-stop style waiting area. At close to 1pm, a security offer waived at us to cross the street and stand in front of the security entrance. He then called out the names of everyone on the scheduled list and checked their passports. He also checked the passports of those accompanying applicants (for example me, the USC). So be sure to have your passport with you if you accompany. Also, be sure to call or e-mail the embassy in advance if you (the USC) wish to attend the interview. They will add you to the appointment lis... read complete review
