OK here we go .. with my London Interview experience.
I travelled down the day before and stayed at a hotel just yards from the US Embassy; this meant that I only had to roll out of bed at 10am for the 11.30 appointment. A quick trip down one of the other side streets near to the Embassy brought me to Goulds Pharmacy and a chance to get the real US Visa style photographs. Not cheap at £7.50 for 4 but the real deal never the less.

So to the big day and after the exhausting 50 yard walk I came to the Embassy, a look up and down for the “ZZ Top” man with the clipboard alas he was nowhere to be found, just a young girl with mirror shades who was hopeless and thats being kind . People often ignored her and strode straight up to the guy checking names off a list and this caused not only delay but a fair amount of discontent in those actually queuing. Eventually I made it to the guy checking names …. He was as useless as the girl, and so slow that I thought we ma... read complete review

Cannot comment on the actual staff at the Embassy as Im still waiting for my interview, but so far numerous phone calls and emails all seem to be met with the same response... "Nothing Yet". I called this morning and at first was told they couldnt give me any information on the phone. When I explained again that all I wanted was confirmation they had recieved my file from NVC (Which was sent 27th July 2005), I got the reply "Oh sorry is it a visa your waiting for?" I explained again that I filed for a CR-1 and everything was finalised and sent from NVC on 27th July they then told me "Well I cant see anything on screen but its probably in the building"
I hope they really are as friendly and efficient on the day of the interview but so far in my personal experience, if you need to contact them via email or phone dont expect an immediate reply (I sent an email 14 days ago and still havent had a reply only the generated FAQ they send telling you to wait 24-48 hours for a reply), and... read complete review

They were difficult to contact when an instant answer was needed, and their method of receiving mail and signing for it needs to be looked at, but when it came down to it they went above and beyond to sort things out and on the day they were polite, helpful and very friendly.

Apart from standing in the queue outside the embassy for a chilly 35 mins, the rest of it went beautifully and I can't complain at all. Except maybe that they called me so quickly for my interview that I didn't get time to drink my coffee! I was in and out of there so fast I couldn't believe it, must have been about 35 mins all told. The staff who dealt with me were all very friendly. I never used the expensive phoneline, just email and got the date I wanted with minimal waiting. The longest wait for me was for Packet 3.
