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

Easy interview, fiancé was only asked two questions and was not asked to show any of the relationship evidence that he had brought.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

they don’t allow you to bring a backpack in the embassy and I was not aware so I had to go find some place to leave it. I left it to the doorman of an apartment building near the embassy.
I had to wait around 30 minutes before I got called to give my passport. They gave me back my original birth certificate and asked me which countries I’ve lived in for more than 6 months and checked they had the police certificates from all of them.
After that I had to go back and wait to be called by another person for the interview.
We started by taking my fingerprints and then she asked me what is my fiancé’s name, where we met and how long we lived together. Asked if he’d like to come back to Europe too since we lived together here before and then she saw I am from Athens so started commenting on how much she likes it. After that she said I’m approved officially and my passport will be ready in about 2 weeks. She was very nice!
Good experience overall apar... read complete review

Everything went smoothly. The people were nice and professional. My husband didn't have his original divorce decree only his translation so they gave him an extension so he could mail it in. Then he got his passport in the mail.
