|Review Topic: EB-3 Visa|
Had a generally good experience, and not all too different from when I applied for F-1 student visa at this same embassy many years ago. Many fewer people now, however, after covid measures were enacted. The waiting room was practically empty â€“ two applicants for immigrant visas before me, and only 1-2 people for non-immigrant visas. Still a fairly long wait for me as they only had one window for processing of documents for immigrants. Waited around 30-40 minutes after my 8:35 arrival for this. After that, they also only had one booth for the interviews, so that was another 1-1.5 hour wait. In the end, I was done at 10:50, so about 2 hours and 15 minutes total.
The interview itself was rather straightforward. They asked about my future employer, the position offered, my experience/education (all degrees, even though I had gotten a master's degree after applying that wasn't relevant). They didn't approve me on the spot as my medical exam was not done yet (lack of appointments), so I got a letter stating my visa was refused (scary wording :S ) temporarily, explaining that it would be processed once that was received.
