Interview Update - Approval

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am writing for my fiance who has just finished his interview. I just wanted to briefly share his experience as many of others posts have helped us.


He said the process went fairly well! He arrived at 5am for his 7:30 appointment. The filipina consul only asked for his birth certificate, NBI clearance, passport and cenomar. She didn't ask him any other questions.


With the female american consul she asked his full name, my full name, my address here in the US, if we have any kids together (we are expecting), so then she asked my due date, how we met, when the last time we saw each other was, if he had any pictures with him of us, and what our course was since we graduated together recently. She did not even ask for our affidavit of support I guess knowing we are just fresh graduates? My fiance informed me that they were very polite to him and felt relaxed even being interviewed by the female american consul. After that he was done! He just clarified that he will pick up his visa at MOA and went home. He was home by 11am to call me.


I just wanted to take the time out to say thank you to those that have really helped us in this process. I do not post much but I have read tons and tons of posts to gather information as to what we would have to do next. Thank you thank you thank you!

I doubt it was because you are fresh grads. It just seems to be standard policy as of late

Congrats and thanks for the update
