Review Topic: K1 Visa

I got to the embassy 10 minutes before my appointment. A security guard asked for my identification card and checked my name off a list and told me to wait outside until I was called. Once I was called, I went through security and was told to take off any belts or electronics. They gave me a card and directed me to the interview office. I was the only one there! The first lady asked me for all my paperwork and checked everything off a list, then told me to go to the next window. They got my fingerprints and then told me to wait sitting down. I was called and was asked to swear that I was telling the truth. Then she started questioning me about my fiance; how we met, for how long we have visited each other, what he does for work or study, what my family thinks of him. Overall it was a good experience! She was friendly and we ended up talking about how her aunt is a dog groomer in the US. :P
She told me everything seemed fine and to pick up my visa in 2 weeks. I thanked her over a... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Our lawyer told us to change our processing from the Uruguay Consulate route to the local-office-in Boston route since we were already here visiting for 6 months. We were in and out in 15 minutes. Since we have two year-old twins, they didn't question anything. They just asked the same lawful questions we had to answer on the AOS forms.

One thing though! They never received our file from NVC! They couldn't put it in the computer that we were approved! They have to wait for our file before they can put the Green card into production even. That said, they said after they get the file, it will arrive in 2-3 weeks probably. My lawyer said, sometimes this can happen at the fault of the USCIS.

I arrived at the Embassy around 8:45am for a 9:30am interview. I made my way to Gould's Pharmacy to drop off my belongings (now let you take in tablets/phones and backpacks - only had to leave my laptop with the pharmacy!). I lined up around 9am and it took about half an hour-ish to get through both lines and security (I wasn't wearing a watch so it was a bit of a blur!).

Anyway, when I entered the Embassy I was given my 'I9--' number [be aware that they don't call them in order so don't worry!] and I made my way to the waiting area. I waited around 20 minutes or so to be called to the first window where I gave my documentation and fingerprints to a gentleman. He then asked me to be seated until my number was called again. [From what I can gather, there is only 2 consulate officers interviewing]. It was actually only another 10 minutes until I was called and I was sworn under oath before the interview started. The CO was a lovely American woman who put me a little more ... read complete review

This embassy was actually very nice and helpful. When I called, the woman was so nice about answering my questions. Whenever I had a question or worry, I would email them and they would respond with-in 24 hours...usually much sooner.
