Review Topic: K1 Visa

He said they were very nice, just asked how we met and how things were going.
It lasted about 10 minutes, and my husband left much more relaxed than when he went in.

In a nutshell, don't stress yourself out too much over it.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My husband and I had been to the Embassy two weeks before our interview to get a document requested by the Slovene authorities for my husband's residence permit for Slovenia (a process that has been much less transparent, pleasant, straightforward or worthwhile than getting my greencard!). At that meeting, the consular office recognised our names and talked to us about my US visa, as well as checking my file and taking my fingerprints (electronically). All we then had to do was return for the interview appointment with a statement from the County Court that I didn't have any legal actions pending against me (the embassy had asked for this by email just after the NVC had sent my appointment date, so I had plenty of time to get it).

At the interview we were asked a couple of questions about what we intended to do work-wise on moving to the US, and then the consular officer told me he was approving my visa, and they would call me in a few days when it was ready to collect.

The whole process was very friendly, fast and straightforward. The consular office wasn't busy so we didn't have to wait (Ljubljana is a very small city).

I took a lot of time researching the entire application process and ensuring that we didn't omit anything at any point, and I think that helped. Even so it's taken a while (about 11 months from start to finish), mainly because of the time taken for the USCIS to process the petition.

But we're very happy to have finally reached this stage, and we'll be moving to the USA in 2 months.

My fiance had no problems at Croatia. Everyone was very nice and he was able to get his visa the same day as his interview. If you have any questions, contact me through visajourney and I'll be happy to give more details.

K-1 VISA INTERVIEW – Zagreb, Croatia on March 11, 2003


Nice, sunny, and very warm day. What a perfect day to get my visa after waiting 6 months and one week.

They don't schedule interviews, you can walk-in any Tuesday and Thursday from 8am to 11.30am when you have all papers needed.

I was at the embassy at 7:58 am. I was asked for what kind of visa I’m coming for. Guard said I need to wait few more minutes and it would be the best if I take a short walk for 5 minutes. Oh my…how hard it is to kill 5 minutes, I thought it will take for ever.
When I came back at 8:05 am they let me in and security checked me as if I’m brining something they don’t want. Guards were friendly and nice. Then they allowed me to get in a room where some people were already waiting. I was waiting for about 10 to 15 minutes when I was called to a window with bullet proof glass. Nice and friendly lady brought my medical exam results and our approved I-129F. She first gave me my x-rays and told me that I should take them with me when I’m leaving. Then she made a copy of forms which doc filled at medical exam and results of my blood test. She took a list and asked me to give her documents in order as she will say.

So I gave her:

3x DS – 156
1x DS – 156K
1x Birth Certificate (translated in English)
1x Police Record (translated in English)
3x ADIT pics
1x I-134 with supporting documents (I gave her employer letter and tax returns)
1x visa fee payment receipt
my passport

She took a quick look to see if everything was ok and then asked me to sit down until my name will be called when it is my turn. I was watching people coming and going. Most of them came for tourist visa and they were filling out the new DS-156 forms, because everyone who had forms already filled out didn’t know there are new ones out. It took about 15 more minutes when I heard my name. I walked to another room with same bullet proof glass window and there was a lady waiting for me. She asked me first if I’m fluent in English. When I said yes she smiled and started to browse through all papers.

Here are questions she asked me:

- Where did you meet your fiancé?
- Did you ever apply for US visa before?
- Did you visit US? (I said yes and then she looked at me and asked how come if I never applied for visa. I explained that I’m coming from one of the countries who are using Visa Waiver Program and that’s why I don’t need visa to travel there as a turist. She looked at my passport and said “ Oh ok…your from Slovenia…right”
- When, how many times, and for how long you have been in US?
- Did your fiancé ever visit your country? When, how many times and for how long?
- Is he living in a house or in apartment?
- Is he living alone?
- What does he do for a living?
- Have you ever been married before? What about him?
- Where is he working and for how long?
- When are you planning to get married?
- Do you plan to work in US?

Then she asked me to swear that what I said was the truth and after that we both signed DS-156K. She told me that I have 6 months to use my visa, 90 days to get married after I enter US and if we don’t get married I need to leave the US. I was told to come back between 3pm and 4pm to pick up my passport and papers. I was done at 9:10am. I had a lot of time to wait and since it was so nice, warm, and sunny weather I decided to go around town, found something to eat and later I found a bench in a park near the embassy and read my book.

At 3pm sharp I was back to the embassy. There was some people already waiting to get in and get their visas. I waited 5 minutes for my turn. I was searched again by security. When I came back to the room where I was in the morning there were about 10 people already waiting. But I was lucky and I was called first. I got my passport with Visa and the mysterious sealed brown envelope. Nice lady said I should not open this envelope and I need to give it to immigration officer at my POE. I looked at my visa, checked everything to see if its ok. Lady wished me good luck and then I left.

When I came home I went online to talk with my Sweetie….I scanned my visa and sent him an image. After short while he said….Oh my…..I thought your birth date is 26SEPT and not 16SEPT. I was sure he is making fun of me and that he is kidding. I opened my passport where visa was and got shocked. My birth date was really wrong and I checked so many times before I left the embassy and still missed that. I was so very upset and very mad at myself. I wrote email to embassy staff in the middle of the night explaining what happened.

I got a phone call in the morning. They were calling me from the embassy. Lady apologized for a mistake and asked if I can come back cause they need to issue new visa. So I’m going back on Monday March 17 and I’m sure I will be very careful and check 1000s of times if everything is ok this time!
