What was your experience like at the 27th April Visa J-Day

by admin » 30 Apr 2007, 09:21

Calling everyone who attended another successful Visa J-day at the U.S Embassy this past Friday on the 27th April

We wanted to get your feedback from what was another great day at the U.S. Embassy. For those who have been in the past they have experienced the regular wait times of 5 hours plus. We had an average wait time of 2 hours for most applicants and some were out in under an hour.

We wanted to get your reaction so any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

Camp America Team

was really good, apart from the fact that getting to London was the worst journey ever, i dont recommend getting the coach down, i queued up for about 20 min, got in and called about 2 min after i sat down, then waited about 5 min got called again and i was out another 5 min later

Camp America staff were a great help making sure we had all out papers and all in the correct order.

My appointment was at 8am. It did not take too long to get in. I was out by quarter to 9. I was so happy it only took 45 minutes, would definately recommend a J-Day, quick with lots of help from staff when you don't know what to do.

Fine day.

Waiting for around two hours, which was not too bad.

It would have been better if there were some directions to the embassy, or even some signs on the approaching roads... but overall not too hard to find.

Very friendly people at the embassy, as well as everyone else there :)

Only one was the security guy telling me to hurry up to go through the metal detector, Always have way too much junk in my pockets :roll: :lol:

Overall very good, but directions or signposts would have been even better.

m appointment was at 9- i gotthere for quarter to. queued outside for an hour but it wasnt so bad as atleast u can chat to the other people in the queue! Once i was in though it took less than 10mins! you need to be on the ball!

TIP : put ur CA sticker on the back cover not on the front as the CA leaflets tell you. I dont know why but the man was really pleased when id done that (i saw some1 say it on here before!), i think they maybe put their own sticker on the front or something?

My appointment was at 2pm, I got in the embassy at quarter two and was back out heading home by half past 2.

My day was really easy, it was great that the representatives were at the entrance to the queing system checking everyones documents and the order of them!

I could'nt make any of the J days and from the feedback they sound much easier. I had my visa appointment yesterday at 2pm. Got there at 1.30 and left the building at 6pm. Yes 4 and half hours. I was the last person to have my interview and leave the embassy. I got a bit worried cause there was at least 100 people who arrived after me and was wondering why I was being left til last. But it was ok in the end just took ages. My advice Go on a J day.
