Review Topic: K1 Visa

My interview was scheduled for 8:15 am and we arrived at 7:45 am. Interviews are now in the new building which is in the side street behind the former main building facing the large street. I had written previously and confirmed that I can have my fiancee with me. The guard outside took our passports and checked them. Then we went through and went into the immigration visa line. This took a while, around an hour, so if its winter, dress warm. After, we went inside and were given a number. There were 20 tickets before us. We waited about 2 hours and then a russian employee took my main documents, she was VERY nice. Super polite and even photocopied my passport for me when i realized i didnt have a copy. Then I sat back down and waited 20 more minutes and was called to have my interview. The consular officer was very nice, asked me about 2 questions, how we met and when the relationship started, was polite, in a good mood. He asked my fiance a question about his kids and asked a confirmi... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

All of the information that was asked for was not reviewed. Only Birth certificate, Divorce certificate, and Marriage certificate to my US husband. The interviewer questioned the US marriage certificate because it was a copy with original signatures. The document was authenticated and ultimately accepted only because of the original signatures and the Apostille certification.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

We arrived around 8 am to the US Embassy in Moscow (30 minutes before the appointment). After that, the security guard checked our passports and allowed us to enter the next section (the beneficiary's and the petitioner's. They will allow the petitioner to attend.) The next section is also outside the embassy. There is a window where they asked us for the confirmation of returning the passport via Pony Express. Then, they allowed us to enter the embassy itself. We passed the second security zone, airport-style.
Once already inside the embassy, we did the line for immigration cases and they reviewed the required documents: Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Photos, Tax Returns, etc. and took my husband's fingerprints. We took a seat again and waited to be called to the interview itself.
When our turn came, the consular officer asked my husband to swear to say the truth and started to ask questions. We were asked about how and when did we meet, what he studied, where... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

We came to the interview together. It was a chilly rainy day. After waiting outside for about 30 minutes we entered the building and got our number. The next was mostly sitting and waiting. The building is brand new and quite spacious. The process was rather simple, first you get your number and wait, later you are invited to submit financial documents and have fingerprints taken, finally, you talk to the officer. We waited about one hour and a half since our appointed time, but we came 40 minutes earlier. The interview itself was very quick and the officer was nice and polite. She only asked us where we met and what work my petitioner does. She mostly talked to him. After about 2-3 minutes of the interview she said that the visa is approved and it will be delivered in 10 days.
All in all, it was a positive experience!

I arrived at the embassy 10 minutes before the appointment time. It took me around 10 minutes from entering the premises to getting my queue number. The interview was quick and easy, it lasted less than a couple of minutes. Overall the embassy did a great job handling the case. Can't say that about the USCIS (although they sent the green card within 2-3 weeks, which was rather quick).
