|Embassy Review :
||first round with an Indian - she took my passport and sealed medical report and then asked: who is calling you there (spouse), have you completed fingerprints, when did you meet petitioner last time, why did i have a notarized affidavit to support my birth certificate (answer: because my name could not be included on birth certificate due to a government regulation that name cannot be included on the birth certificate if the certificate is requested after 15 years of birth). she returned all my civil documents and took ds-260 confirmation copy and later gave the pamphlet about rights in the US and asked me to go through it later.
after that, waited for approx. 15 minutes when name was called out for the next round:
second round with an American - She asked which language would I like to be interviewed, then asked me to read out/take the oath. Then asked: who is calling you there, when did you get married, was it a love or arranged marriage, where did you go for your honeymoon, when did you meet petitioner last time, where does he work, with whom does he live there and then she said 'congrats, your visa is approved'. She then handed the page with instructions to pay $165 and said we should pay it before I land in the US.
very pleasant experience at the consulate. both officers were extremely polite throughout.
