Review Topic: K1 Visa

Had interview booked for 1030, the entrance is super easy to find, went up to the stall that was outside at around 10am after sitting in Starbucks beforehand which is a short walk from the embassy.
The outside of the embassy was pretty empty, I'm not sure if that's the norm or not. At the stall outside I was asked for Passport and DS160 and then told to continue into security.
Going through security is easier than an airport just make sure you adhere to their guidelines on what you can and can't bring. I only had a bag with documents and normal, phone, keys, headphones wallet.
Once past security it was just a walk following the signs, still no queue, up to the desk where I got given a number and told to go to the first floor and go left then left. The ticket on my DS160 had the number and which window to sit by, this was away from the large amount of people on the same floor, and there was only a handful of people.
First window was simple, fingerprints done,... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

First, a bit of logistical advice: if you're staying in an outer part of London and your appointment is early, do not count on the availability of Ubers or taxis or whatever else to take you directly there. I learned this the hard way, though fortunately I had left enough time to get to the embassy comfortably on public transit instead.

My appointment was for 9.30. I arrived at about 8.20, and dropped off my bag at District cafe for £10 (they said that most coffee places in the area offer bag storage for a fee). After a quick coffee and breakfast, I went over to the South Pavilion entrance for roughly 8.45. The queue on the left (for US citizen services) is the one you need to join. Despite reading every review advising me to join that queue, I wavered in the heat of the moment and joined the one for visa services. Thankfully it was short, and they gave me directions to enter anyway – I didn't have to queue again. They checked my passport and my DS-160 confirmation p... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

I had my K-1 Visa interview appointment at 9:30 am, but I made sure to arrive at the US Embassy 40 minutes early. On arriving, I was met with a sizable queue and, unfortunately, I initially stood in the wrong line. A heads up to others: you need to approach the desk by the doors first. There's a bit of confusion because, although the K-1 visa is technically a non-immigrant visa, they process it as an immigrant visa. There were clear indications that some signage improvements could be helpful, as another lady there for the K-1 Visa also seemed perplexed by the same issue.

After clearing the initial desk, I went through a security check, which felt akin to an airport security but with a more relaxed vibe. The officers at security hinted I should bypass the general "visa" line and proceed directly to the front desk. A minor hiccup again - you actually need to use the 'US Citizens' line for this.

The front desk team were efficient; they took my DS-160, passpor... read complete review
