Review Topic: K1 Visa

Pretty standard visit, though a lot longer than I was expecting given some of the "in and out in 20 minutes" that I'd heard here...! (this is my last chance to partake in the national British pastime of "moaning" so please indulge me!)

10:30am appointment so left from Cardiff around 5:30am; parked at Westfield shopping centre near Shepherd's Bush, £6 to stay all day! If you set up an account with credit card it'll take payment automatically from your car number plate. Then got underground (1 x change) to Vauxhall.

Arrived at embassy 10:15am, security was a breeze but then we were all left queueing outside in the freezing cold for another 15-20 mins; could've done without that.

Only waited about 5 mins for first interview; asked to provide passport, birth cert, police cert, I-134 form; he asked for proof of my sponsor's earnings and luckily I'd got a copy of their recent tax return so all was fine. Fingerprints taken.

Then I ... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Had my K1 Visa interview today and it went very well and is so less stressful than what you may think, it was a breeze and it is all pretty much straight forward two discussions and bam approved.

Started off outside the embassy where the lady asked for me DS-160 and my passport, she then signed my DS-160 and handed it back to me and said to come back 30 minutes before 11:30 which I did after I spent that time hanging out at the nearby Waitrose around the corner.

Returned and went through security easily enough, through to another building where they asked for my DS-160 again and passport and put a little receipt with my number that is called forward on a screen and the two windows that I should sit by to wait to be called. 2 minutes aftertastes 11:30 schedule I was called up to a very friendly chap who asked for two passport pictures (US size) my birth certificate, name change document (surname was changed years ago) and affidavit for support. He asked how... read complete review

Review Topic: K1 Visa

So we went really early for the interview so there was no line luckily. My US fiance was able to come inside with me to the embassy as he had brought his passport with him! We had only a 10 minute wait and then he was able to come up with me to the booth where a friendly lady asked us a few questions. They were easy, normal questions you'd ask a couple and then she approved us! When we left, there was a long line so we were lucky we had an early appointment!

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Interview date: 17/12/18

I arrived at 11:00 for my 11:30 appointment. Was directed straight to the airport style security, and then into the embassy to queue for a reception desk where you will be given a sticker with a number on, and told to take the lift to the first floor, turn left and then left again. Took about 20 minutes to get through the security and queue for reception.

I sat for about 5 minutes before my number came up on the screen and I was directed to one of the booths. Very friendly officer asked me for - ds160, passport, 2 passport photos, birth certificate, police certificate, i-134 (i also handed over 4 payslips and letter from HR confirming annual income), and took my fingerprints. She asked me: have I ever been married before? Have I ever lived abroad for more than a year? She was super nice and was commenting on how different i looked on the photo on my police certificate to now and saying she liked my hair!

I took a se... read complete review
