|Review Topic: K1 Visa|
The visa interview for Vladi was very easy actually; much easier than we anticipated but I think being overprepared helped. Vladi received a phone call from the embassy on the same day that I received the NOA2 letter from Vermont Service Center (I was amazed at their timing!). On that phone call she was able to schedule her interview, and so one month later she went in for her interview in Bratislava, SK. The interview itself was a quick and easy process except that she had to walk to the post office to pay the fee - on the embassy website it says you can pay at the embassy itself, but this isn't actually true. Once she returned to the embassy from the post office one of the staffers entered her information into a computer.
At this point one of the US consular officials came into the room and asked one question - "When is the last time you saw Jeremy?". She answered "2 weeks ago" since I was just there visiting , and that was it! He said that she was approved and to come back next week to pick up her passport with the visa.
Simple and easy! We could not be more pleased!
