Review Topic: General Review

My appointment was at 11:30 am, so I arrived 15 minutes early. I walked in without any issues and everyone was very nice and helpful. The only issue was that I couldn't go inside with my backpack, so I had to find a locker nearby to keep it during my appointment. The whole process took around an hour and a half including going through security, taking a number, giving all required documents, and waiting to be called. The actual interview process took around 5-10 minutes including an oath to tell the truth plus a few questions. At the end, the interviewer told me that it would take 1-2 weeks to process the visa.
1) How did you meet? Describe your love story.
2) Have you met the future in-laws? Do you get along with them?
3) When did we leave Germany? (this is where we met)
4) Where in the US will you guys be living?
5) What type of work will you expect to have in the US?
Overall it was a very positive experience - the only downside was the waiti... read complete review

Very simple and stress free experience. Took about 3 minutes - asked just a few simple questions. Officer mentioned we were approved and will receive the visa in 7-10 days.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Arrived to the embassy about 5 minutes early and was able to enter inside with no problem. Seemed to be about 10 total interviewed at our same hour. We were there for a total of 1 hour and 15 minutes. They gave us a number at arrival and then we waited to be called. First woman reviewed that we had turned in all documents from Packet 3 and asked for beneficiaries' medical exam. They returned the package to us after looking inside with a new seal on top and said not to open it. We then waited a bit more for the interview. Agent asked to speak with the beneficiary only - he asked my fiance how we met and how long he had been living in Madrid. He then called me to the window and asked where we were moving to and what I did for a living. He then told us we were approved and would receive the visa in 1-2 weeks!

Super chill, super nice and relaxed -- Only note is the embassy felt a bit different, I guess because they are still closed to the public? I'd been before for other p... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

The interview was August 2nd, 2021. To preface: we didn't realize we would need 3 police-related certificates from Peru: Policiales, Judiciales, and Penales. We only sent Penales in Packet 3, so we needed to get the other two. We got Judiciales online, the Embassy approved it via e-mail, and are still in the process of getting Policiales.

Everyone at the Embassy was so nice! The administrative woman asked for these forms: 1. The appointment booking, 2. Proof of fee payment, 3. Medical docs, 4. His passport, and 5. A print-out of the aforementioned Judiciales. She then told us the Policiales doesn't need to be apostilled and that it can be mailed directly from Peru to the Embassy.

I went with my fiancé to the Embassy. Daniel told his interviewer I was there, he called me over, and I did the interview with him! :D Questions: 1. "How did you and your fiancée meet?", 2. "Samantha, when did you leave Spain initially?", 3. "You were together in person for over... read complete review

The interview was great! Officer was kind and we even laugh at some point! The embassy is very organized and the only drawback was that it was a busy day and it took me 2 hours but everything was good.
