OT: food inside USEM

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi! i hope all of you will indulge me on this. i just need to pose this question to all who recently went in for their interviews. my parents are having their NIV (B1/B2) interview tomorrow, and am wondering if the USEM allow snacks (just biscuits and water) to be brought inside the premises? :unsure: my parents' are diabetics and hunger pangs may cause their sugar levels to rise. thanks.

I cannot answer your question for sure and it is too late for you to call the Embassy. As a past diabetic, I would suggest that your parents explain about their diabetes to the guards outside. I doubt the Embassy would want a hyper or hypoglycemic reaction. Glucose pills or bars may be a good alternative.

just wanted to thank you guys again. my parents did get to bring their snackbox inside the USEM premises and left with their tourist visa approval :dance::dance::dance: ...now we are praying and keeping our fingers crossed that it will be a multiple/10 or 5 for both of them.
