Review Topic: IR-5 Visa

My parents were interviewed together by a friendly officer. They were interviewed about 2.5 hours after their scheduled appointment (8am).
The interview lasted around 20 minutes. They were asked to provide a new police certificate (which we fortunately had), marriage certificate, their birth certificates, and my birth certificate. They were asked about how I got to the USA, information on my employment history, where my sister lives and why they decided to relocate to the USA and not where my sister lives.
Besides the wait, they had a very pleasant experience and they are extremely grateful that they have been approved.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Visa interview scheduled for 9:15
At 9:00, everyone began queuing outside of the consulate, the guard will show you where to wait. At 9;15 they began checking that everyone had the correct photographs. Then they checked that everyone was on the list, I was not on the list but after showing them my visa interview invitation they added me onto the system. We waited outside the consulate until called, this took over an hour.

Families with children went first, and then they went according to where you were in the queue. Once entering the consulate you have to hand the guards your phone, they will put it into a lockbox and will give you a number to collect your phone when you are leaving. After that I was led into the visa interview area, and waited until called.

When I was called to the first desk I had to hand over all evidence and civil documents (make sure that your birth certificate and marriage certificate are unabridged). After this I was told t... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

We arrived at our appointment 15 min before. From the get go everyone was friendly and very helpful. We all received a number. They started exactly on time. They called us one by one, first you go to the application counter where they take all the required documents. The lady made small talk with me while she was taking my paperwork. But enough smalltalk to also be questions about Our relationship. I handed her every document she asked for and she laughed she said when she saw my folder she knew I was prepared and that everything will be in order. She told me to go sit and wait for the next person to call me.

About 10 min later I was called and he made me take an oath and my daughter also wanted to and he giggled. He told me she can go play while we’re busy. He went through my docs and checked and stamped it all. He then asked me my first question - what does my fiancé do for a living? And where is she working?
He then asked me do I understand my rights in the... read complete review
