Review Topic: K1 Visa

Arrived at 12:55pm for my 13:00pm interview.

Processed through security and given card number.

Was called via intercom to the first window where I dealt with a South African lady who was really sweet and conversational. She asked for a few documents and asked some questions. When last did I see my fiancé? When are we getting married? The rest was just casual discussion about immigrating.

Submitted the following paperwork at the first window;

Police Clearance
Unabridged Birth Certificate
Affidavit of Support (Tax forms)
Evidence (Continuation of relationship)
Passport photo’s X2
DS160
Proof of Payment and Appointment Booking

After submitting the above documents went to the interview queue.

After 15 minutes I was called to the interview window. Swore to tell the truth etc. and the interview began. She asked easy questions, how we met? When last ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

my fiance said the interview was simple and to the point and took only 10min. He had a big book full of evidence but the interviewing person told him to take some evidence that she didnt want to see the entire book (plus it was too big to fit through the pass through window)
questions he was asked
1. where are you going to live in the USA
2. how many times did I visit
3.what kind of work did I do
and she then said all looks well your visa will be ready in 7-10days

Very friendly staff, as nerve wrecking it can be I'll give the same advice everyone else here gave me, be calm and relaxed it goes very smoothly.

Arrived 8 AM for my 9 AM appointment, they let me in as the consulate was very quite, the whole process was under an hour.

Arrived at the consulate and gave the help desk my passport, filled out some piece of paper with case number and my contact details, they applied a sticker on the back of my passport for my pick up location.

Proceeded to sit in the line and wait to be called to counter 4, handed over all the required docs for the k-1 visa.

Then waited to be called to window 6, raised my right hand and confirmed all info supplied and answers are true etc..

Questions he asked:

where did we meet
When did my fiance visit me
what is my background in my studies and work
was I married before/ was my fiance married before

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my appointment last thursday at 1pm. I got there super early like 11:40 am and then the security guard said I should go to the mall and get some refreshments haha. So I came back at about 12 :20 and there were only two couples lined up on the benches. Met some lovely people going through same or similar processes. We were then called to line up and the man checked out names and photos to make sure they are the right size. Then off we went through security and then through to the main building. Everything honestly went by so fast, we filled out a small piece of paper with our contact info and then went to go sit down and wait for our number to be called. I was number 3. I chatted to some people while we waited as I was a little nervous. About 5 min later I got called to the first window where I met a lovely SA lady who asked me for all my documents and fingerprints:
- DS 160
- PCC - she kept
- UBC - gave back but kept a copy
- passport photos
-... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Had the K1 interview yesterday - it was about 2.5 hours from walking in to walking out (most of it is spent waiting to be called to a counter).

After submitting all our documents, I waited and was called to a different counter for the interview. It was actually quite short - about 15 minutes.
The interviewer was friendly, and asked:

- When was the last time you saw your fiance?
- How and when did you meet?
- Tell me your story?
- What are your wedding plans and what are your plans once you've entered the US?
- What kind of job/work are you going to do once you're able to work (Green Card issued)?

She said well done our application looks really good and we had all the documents they required. Congratulations, and she'd approve it later in the day.

Done!
