Consulate / USCIS Member Review #33000

Madrid, Spain Review on March 3, 2024:



Review Topic: K1 Visa

Overall, an alright experience. My main hiccup was when I went to the embassy for my document review. Security would not let me enter with my small backpack, refused point blank. Someone else arrived to have their documents checked at the same time as me and they only had a canvas bag with their documents in it. The security team wouldn’t even let them use the canvas bag and make them take their documents out. I was very stressed and ended up quite upset, and they didn’t seem to care at all. I ended up having to leave my backpack at the newspaper stand across the street. The odd thing was, when I went back for my interview, everyone had their bags and backpacks inside. So I honestly don’t know, its very conflicting, but I wouldn’t risk it if you can avoid it. They were also very strict about the photo, and made me retake it on their machine there - I wouldn’t bother taking one in advance! Otherwise, the interviewee was very friendly and the interview portion was over in less than 5 minutes, after a 2 hour wait.

- How long have I known my fiancé?
- Where did we meet?
- When did we last see each other?

At the document review I was advised to bring updated proof of relationship to the interview, but on the day no additional paperwork was asked for.
