Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Overall I am very please with my experience! I did have several bumps along this road but my Visa was granted today and I could not be happier!! They were very kind at the Consulate and during my interview. I needed further documentation which I send and it was approved very quickly. So very Thankful!

Alright so my appointment was set for 9:00am. This time means that they will physically let you enter the consulate at that time, not that you will be in front of someone at 9:00am. There was a line up of people outside, some of whom were 45 minutes early. I'm an anxious person, so I was one of those people. The thing is, it doesn't matter how early you are because security will not let you enter until your appointment time begins. So I went to the second cup and got a smoothie- this will probably be a saving grace for everyone with winter interviews!

At the time of your interview, they'll call forward anyone in the line with that time. At 9:00, myself and one or two other people came forward. You can enter the building but will be stopped between the doors by a security guard for COVID-19 screening. After that, you'll be permitted to enter the ground floor where you will sanitize your hands and be asked to put your belongings in a bucket, much like at the airport, to s... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

After 706 days after being DQ I finally got my interview. I've put a lot of stress on my shoulder for nothing ! The interview took about 10 minutes and I was approved. I arrived early at 7:20 AM, my interview was at 8:15 there was already 8 other people in line. The security guard first ask everybody who had an appointment at 7:30, 7:45 etc by 15 minutes bracket. One inside with the guard you have to show him your passport and then he confirms your appointment on his list and send you inside where you pass security. Had to remove my watch, my cellphone (and turn it off), belt, stand inside the X-Ray scanning machine then was instructed to deposit my phone in one of their lockbox and you keep the key.

Questions asked during the interview were routine and like what is my current job, what is my spouse job.
How did we meet ?
Longest stay in the US ?
Have I ever been arrested ?

He then said all my documents were good and he'd go ahead and... read complete review

I had my interview on September 3rd, 2021. I got to the consulate by foot but if you plan to drive, make sure to adjust expectations because there's a LOT of construction at the moment that makes driving a little bit tricky. I was COVID screened and then asked to put my electronics into the small locker. It turns out I could have brought a purse (there were others in the waiting room with bags and purses) but all I had on me was my wallet and my phone, plus my paperwork, so I just popped my wallet and phone into the locker. The waiting room is pretty spacious, but the wait times were incredibly long. I dropped my passport off at the first desk, waited about 45 minutes, and then was called up to the window where I was asked for my birth certificate, marriage certificate, and spouse's proof of income. They did not ask for the 2019 proof of income, only the 2020, which we had not uploaded onto the site, but luckily I did have it with me so that was fine. I was not asked for any other docu... read complete review

Interview went really well.
i got there at 10am and was out at 10:45am.
I was first called to a window where this lady asked couple documents and passport.
Then, they made me sit in the waiting room.
i was again called to a second window where the interview would take place.
the guy asked about my job, how i met fiance, how long, his date of birth, his name his profession, if have ever been married before if i have kids and that was pretty much it. He then gave me the pink letter saying welcome to the USA and told me i am good to go he wll approve my visa!!! 45min looks like a long time but most of the time was spent in the waiting room other wise, i probably did 10 min at each wndow.
