Hope everyone is reading this in good health. I wanted to know if the petitioner attends the interview may that person be in the same room? Does it help even going? Any experience with ISB embassy? Alot of questions i know so do your best I know i do.

Nope, the petitioner have to wait in the waiting room until the interview is over. It's same for all the us embassy. My father in law, had to wait 2 hours until his fiancee finish with the interview, that was not cool, but oh well.

Not true. It completely varies by country. Some embassies don't allow it, some do. Send an email or phone call to the US embassy in Pakistan and they will definitely let you know.

Good luck!

Hey Jay,

When I had my K1 interview my fiance was with me in the room. Its basically a big hall with lots of people waiting for different type of visa interviews. Your fiance can sit with you in the hall. Your name will be called for the interview and all you have to do is go to that particular window for the interview. Its good to have your fiance with you because it makes your case stronger.

During my interview, again my fiance was with me and that was a positve point towards the interveiw. The interview lady even called my fiance to ask her a few questions, just to check if we are on the same wave length. So that is totally upto you if the petitioner would like to tag along with you on the iterview date. My advice is that if possible petitioner should go with you. The waiting time is a killer though so your partner will keep you occupied because it does get very boring in there :) Either way I wish you the best of luck. Cheers dude.

It's same for all the us embassy.

No it's not. I went to the K-1 interview with my fiance and again to the CR-1 interview with him two days ago. Both times we were together, and there were plenty of couples there.

even though I moved over somewhat in advance, I still flew back for the interview so i could be there to support him!

thanks for the responses! the current situation in pak is making me nervous so i hope inshallah to be with her during the interview. Would it help if I made any suggestions such as asking to get the visa earlier?

I wish it was that easy. I don't think your suggestions will work at the U.S embassy. They will grant the visa when ever they please! Trust me dude, geting a visa, specially the part where you get stuck in Admin processing for K.1 is like looking a for needle in a hay stack <_<. I guess in these cases patience is the key to success.
