I was able to get inside ten minutes before the appointment. They asked me for the papers and then I have to wait for a few minutes for the interview. The interview was short and the questions were quite simple. I wasn't asked for additional proof. Both the interviewer and the first lady were very nice.

Hi all,

I had my interview this morning and it was quick and easy. The interview was scheduled for 10 am, but I arrived around 9:40 and was able to enter earlier. The security control was fine, although I had forgotten that I have a tiny swiss army knife in my keyring and they asked me to throw it into one of the bins outside the building, and pick it back later. They dont hold these items for you.

Once you enter they checked my printed email with the appointment confirmation, and then I went to the first floor. Once there I waited around 10 minutes until my number appeared on the screen (by the way, thed did not call me or made any sound when my number came up, so you need to check the numbers at the booths oftenly).

In the first call they asked me for my passport, only one picture, and my birth, marriage and police certificates (including the translations, if applicable). They took my fingerprints, and asked me if I had been in the US bef... read complete review

All good and simple. They will first ask you for some more documents before the interview. Short wait and a consular officer sked a few easy and simple questions about my relationship. Total time, less than an hour.

HEY ELECTION DAY INTERVIEW!!

We got to the Embassy twenty minutes early and we took a picture of my husband outside by the United States Embassy Sign, and were promptly told to show the security guards the photo. They saw it and it was all OK but It didn't occur to me about not taking photos. They were very kind.We checked in with men at the front gate, and then moved through the metal detector. (They will keep your purse/bag and your cell phone (which must be turned off) Walked into the actual building and the woman let us through into the waiting room. We waited about 30 mins and he was called to the DMV style window (you do not go into a room, it's all done in the open main room).

Here were the questions:

-How did you meet?
-When did you begin dating
-How long have you lived together
-Have you (immigrant) ever lived outside of Spain?
-What was the date of your marriage?
-Why did you decide to get married... read complete review

We had a great experience with the US consulate of Madrid. Even before the date of the interview, they were prompt and helpful when we emailed them to ask to expedite our interview due to the concern of another lockdown (which they approved for us).

I got there with my wife 20 minutes earlier than the appointment time, and they let us both in, only asked for our passports. We went through security and then to a waiting room for around 5 min, the woman in the booth had us confirm some basic info (email, phone, delivery address, etc), asked for some originals (passport, birth, marriage certificate, courier delivery sign up, police clearance, etc), she kept those and asked us to wait in the same room for my name to be called.

After less than 10 minutes, we got called up to another booth (all within the same big room) and the interview happened there. The guy asked us if we were comfortable with having the interview in English and started writing after we conf... read complete review
