Consulate Review: Auckland, New Zealand
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 10, 2019
Embassy Review : I was absolutely terrified going into the Consulate - I have anxiety so it was flaring up really bad. I stayed up the night before my interview combing over the reviews here, and looking at all the positive ones I hoped mine would be just as smooth.

After going through security, I went to window 5 to hand over my passport and check in. Was met by B - she's as lovely as everyone here says! She was very kind and calming, and at one she was just like "Okay before you move to the next window, take a moment to breathe because you look like you're about to cry. It's okay!" which yes, I was tearing up 😂 I pay for the fee, and then I wait for a little over 2 hours. It was a very busy day in there. The wait was excruciating, no clock inside to keep track of time so I recommend getting a watch. Once my name was called the talk with the officer hardly lasted 5 minutes. He just asked me "When and how did you meet? What are your shared interests?" and it turned out our shared hobbies were also a thing the officer did too! And well, boom, I was approved! I had to ask "Wait, I'm approved?" because I was so shocked at how fast it happened.
Rating : Very Good
