Review Topic: K1 Visa

Interview was very easy and simple, it took me about 3 hours the whole process, got there at 7:30am, first thing you do is the security protocol, best advice is to not bring anything aside the paperwork embassy asks for, there's 2 different security check out, then someone from either window 1, 2 or 3 asks you for your passport and medical exam letter, they have you sit down again, then someone from either window 4, 5 or 6 (an american) calls you, it was a lady in my case, she asked me how I met my fiancée, her name, her occupation, how our families get along, any wedding plans, she asked me for pictures and I handed them over to her, she looked all of them, then she said that I was approved and I'd get an email from CargoTrans once my passport is ready for pick up.

Overall staff is really friendly except a lady from window 3, she's unable to respond politely

The interview is definitely anxiety inducing. In my case I wanted as much info as possible, so I hope this review can help.

1. Appointment was at 7:30AM. I arrived at 5:45AM because I was traveling from Rivas. If you have the 7:30AM slot try to be there as early as possible, and you'll be the 1st one in most likely (I was). At 7:30AM, the security guard asked everyone to line up, and have the passport & interview letter ready (he checks if you're in a list)

2. Security was easy as I had nothing but my documents. They don't want sealed envelopes so make sure everything is loose in your folder/binder.

3. I was instructed to go directly in to the area where interviews are conducted. Here the lady next to the door asked for my passport, DS 260, and Cargo trans confirmation page. She also advised me to have all my original civil docs, police report, passport & passport photos ready for the next person.

4. It took 5-10 mins for me to get called to the first window. This person was Nicaraguan. He asked for the previous mentioned items, and he proceeded to take my fingerprints. After that I was asked to sit down.

5. After around 20 mins, I was called to another window for my actual interview. The American lady was really nice. She first took my fingerprints again, I was sworn in to give truthful information, and then she asked me basic questions such as: What's your husband's name? , when, where and how did you meet? , when & where did you get married? , have you had any trouble with the law?
As far as documents she only asked to see relationship pictures. I had about 30, and she only saw 4 pictures. She then said my visa was approved, and that I should receive my passport in 2 weeks. She returned my original docs, and I was out.

*** I had my medical at Vivian Pellas, and they sent it digitally to the embassy, so I was not asked about it at any point.
*** The interview itself took about 5 mins.
*** Got in at 7:30AM, and I was out by 8:20AM. Honestly it took this long only because they kept having problems with my fingerprints, otherwise it probably would have been even faster. I can see how interviews scheduled after 7:30AM can take 3-4hrs, the place was full by the time I got out. You are mixed with non-immigrant applicants but the line & windows are different for immigrant visas. After me, 4 more IR1 were already waiting.

Hope this helps! Good luck everyone!

Hello everyone, i had my K1 visa interview on 3/4/20 at the U.S embassy in Managua, Nicaragua. Im just trying to help others who are going through the same process as me. This is my experience of my interview as i went through it.

To start off i got to the embassy at 12Pm because my interview was at 12:45. I took the shuttle bus from Plaza LaFe to the embassy because there is no parking for personal vehicles. The shuttle fee was 3$. YOU CAN NOT TAKE ANY ELECTRONIC DEVICES OR PURSES INTO THE EMBASSY. You have to leave them outside at a desginated spot that the embassy has. You have to pay for this service i can not remember the amount but it was't that much.

Even though my interview was at 12:45pm the embassy did not open until 1pm because they were at lunch. In order to get inside they ask you to open your medical exam envelope. (Do not open any envelopes until they tell you). I went through security and i had no problems. It was like going through security at the airport.

Then i got to the first agent (A Nicaraguan Agent) they checked my documents. The agent asked me for my phone number and my fiancee phone number. The agent organized my packet and put the most important papers on top.

After that i went through security again to get in to the waiting room with next set of agents who were going to continue my processing. I started waiting for my turn. When my turn came i got to the next nicaraguan agent who asked for my passport and my medical exam. The agent also did my fingerprints. (The agent kept my passport and medical exam with him).

After that i waited for 1 hour. Then i was called by the american agent for my official interview. First the agent asked my name and then i did more fingerprints. Then he started asking questions about me and my fiancee about how we met. He asked me to show my proof of my relationship. He also asked me questions about my fiancee family. He asked me how many times my fiancee had visitied me. Since i was previously married before. He asked me many questions about that. Also since i traveled to the USA before he asked me what i was doing when i came and how long i stayed when i came. At the end of the interview he told me congratulations and that i could pickup my passport from the place i selected when i scheduled my interview in 2 weeks.

Overall my experience was good. I didnt have any major issues at the embassy. I would recommend to bring some cash and also make sure you have extra passport sized photos. Some people lost their photos or the pictures that they had were not up to the standard for the embassy.

I pray everyone has sucess in their K1 visa process.
