Husband's Visa Approved then Asked for Second Interview

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is from the West Bank (Palestine) and he had his Visa interview at the American Embassy in Jerusalem on August 23rd. He answered all of the typical questions and then the lady told him that his Visa is approved. She took his passport and told my husband that he will receive it with his Visa within 1-2 weeks due to the holidays coming up. He then got a call back a week later and they told him that they scheduled him for ANOTHER interview on September 11th. Is this normal? Do you think they will then hand him his Visa on that second interview?

 

Background Info: I am an American citizen - born and raised here. We had our wedding in the West Bank (Palestine) on August 11th but I had to return to America due to work. He has no criminal record and neither do I. We have ample proof of our relationship/wedding and we are of the same cultural background and religion. He works in Israel which is a good thing because Israel even performs significant background check before letting Palestinians work there.

 

We have been together for almost a year and a half and I am miserable just waiting in America for him and I want to know if this is normal or not!

 

Thank you all for your time!

It's not typical (at least at most embassies...I can't say that for sure at every embassy) if that's what you're asking. It doesn't mean there's reason to suspect a refusal either....it means during some processing after the interview, they came across something that they need to review with him. I don't think they will hand him the visa at the interview...a visa isn't official until it is issued, which has other AP processes that go on behind the scenes (i.e. they won't issue a visa and then interview somebody to determine if they are still eligible for it).

 

Good luck!

no, I don't think they will hand the visa to him on that day. They never work that fast....They would send it by courier or if he has permission to be in Israel then he would pick it up....we always used the courier service
