Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

thank god this journey is over now. visa approved. Ill just write a quick overview of the interview. We arrived at 6:20, my husband said there were 4 people in front of him. They opened the doors at 7:12 am and at that time the line was really long behind him. his ticket was 604 (4th one). They do not start till 8 am and he was out of the embassy at 9:34 am. i was shocked when he called me that early/ fast.

He said overall the experience was smooth and very professional. they mostly focused on asking him questions related to me (his sponsor).
My only hint is, be ready with documents. We had to prove domicile (re-establishing cause we both live in UAE). and i had all these documents ready. overall the interview took less than 5 minutes he said.

visa issued same day and passport was shipped around 7 pm (just waiting for it to arrive to local post office to pick it up)

best of luck!

Review Topic: General Review

Arrived at the interview early. Woman conducting the interview was very professional. Reviewed all documents and asked a lot of questions about my past marriage and age difference. Everything went smooth until the end. They returned her passport and stated that we needed to provide proof of our text messaging history to prove the relationship. Hundreds of pictures, travel documents, passport stamps (we had traveled together for vacations) and it still wasn't sufficient. They didn't deny it, but gave us a 221g and told us to bring back the information along with the passport. Over the next couple of days we sent in, what we thought, was sufficient copies of our text messages only to be continually told that it wasn't enough. Finally, on the 3rd attempt, we provided our entire 4 year chat history. At this point we were approved and were allowed to turn in her passport for issuance of the visa. Though I thought it excessive to provide over 400k text messages, I'm thankful we kept them all... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Arrived at 7:10AM and there were already a lot waiting outside the embassy. They started to let us in at around 7:20AM and the counters opened at 8AM.
Waited for my token to be called. All the staff were very nice and approachable. The interview went smoothly and only took me 5 mins. I was done by 10AM.
Questions asked:
1. What is your name
2. Where do you live
3. How long have you been here in UAE
4. What is your work here
5. In which company
6. Have you lived in any other country for more than 6 months
7. What did you do there
8. Where did you meet your fiance
9. What does he do
10. Where does he live
11. When did you first meet in person
12. Did he visit you again after that
13. What are your wedding plans

CO gave me an IMBRA pamphlet after and said that everything looks good and gave me a white slip saying Congratulations!
