Interview in Tunis - Necessary for USC to go?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello :)

I need answers from people who are experienced with this embassy and its general rules.

My husband is a Tunisian national, and I am a United States Citizen (his wife). My question, is it absolutely necessary for me to attend his interview for the CR-1 / IR-1 visa? (It will become IR-1 visa in July)

If I do attend, will I be allowed inside? Will he be able to show the CO my passport as proof of me being there?

Is this a discretionary rule dependent on whatever the CO wants? If the CO decides they want to question me, will they set up another interview if I'm not there?

Any help is greatly, greatly appreciated.

Not even the gods above can break,
Baby what we have"

Nothing? Please, I need guidance on this before the interview which will likely be less than 2 months away.

I did not attend the interview, and it is not required, you can go with them and wait but from what my husband says they didnt interview the spouses there and told them they couldnt be apart of the interview but noted they were there. The interview went easily for my husband and they expect you to speak english. If you have any questions feel free to message me back :D

It seems like such a mixed bag with this embassy. Seems like half the COs are easy and half are very scrutinizing! With my luck, I know he will get the very difficult CO. I really want to save the money, but I don't want to have any regrets. Plus, I would like to see his family one more time before the big move (fingers crossed). Thank you for your response :)
