My interview is coming up

Hi Adenicole,

 

It is hard to say, because people do get both approvals or denials, or can got into administrative processing (221g for missing evidence or background check issues), at the interview.  There are no guarantees.

 

Just make sure you double-check all the requested information and that you have everything as it should be, plus ensure you show additional proof of your ongoing relationship (with any new physical evidence such as boarding passes, plane ticket info, photos, etc., or additional communications/IMs, phone records, signed reaffirmation of being free and able to marry in 90 days letters, etc.).

 

If you have all that and your vaccinations and medical done, you are meeting the requirements you need to show.  But now you need to show sincerity about your relationship and the questions they ask, at the interview.  Channel any nervousness into energy that keeps you positive in your interview.  Some people get very tough interviewers, while others are nice.  Some people get 4 questions, some get 30 minutes of questioning.  I'd recommend checking out the Nigerian embassy forum to see if you can find others who have interviewed there and what kinds of questions they were asked and their reviews of the embassy.  

 

My fiance and I found lists of questions online, compiled them, and went over them. It was more a practice to cover any questions that could possibly come up, so he would feel more confident in the interview.  But of course we know each other so well, so it came easy for him.  The reason you want to go to the USA, if asked, is always to marry your fiance(e).. sometimes they ask questions to trip you up - maybe you also want to get good work and provide for your family, or whatnot, but I've heard of people being denied for answering that simple question incorrectly.

 

I don't want you to fear the interview.  Remember that you've been preliminary approved, gotten through the NVC background screening, and if you've shown good evidence in the first petition and in the documents you bring to the embassy to support your relationship, then there will be less you have to 'prove'.   

 

I posted the questions we got on our timeline.  You can also see others who interviewed at the Nigerian embassy on this page: http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Nigeria&cty=Lagos (on the right hand side) and see if they left reviews.

 

I found this posting of an interview in Nigeria. It was for a spousal visa, not a K1, so some different questions; but it gives a very thorough review:

Good luck to you!

@soulsticker what's your experience at lagos embassy and how did the CO deals with K1 visa applicant. I just want to know cos have not applied for U S Visa before and have heard a lot of negative things about how they handle Nigerians.  I just need someone to give an expo on what I will be facing soon, so that I can prepare myself. Thanks

Really you should know within yourself if it's a genuine relationship and if you have prepared properly, if you have everything ready then your chances are good, and no I don't have experience with your countries process but it just comes down to how thorough you are with the preparations.

Read the reviews and be prepared and confident. Tats all anyone can tell you. Even a couple with many visit, no red flags no issues get denied. Hopefully you had a good quality petition package you submitted to USCIS so the CO has something to review before you even come to interview. Because really the decision is already made before you even arrive. So say to yourself "what did we submit to give a co the best possible picture of our genuine relationship."

Thanks ks to everyone here for your advice and support.  Got my interview on Thursday and I won't call that an interview cos the CO didn't ask me anything than, What's my name and my fiancee name, what do we both do, when did we see, the next thing was a white paper to pick up my visa. Thanks everyone.  I have a question, please it will take how many working days to get my passport back?
