Interview at Syrian Embassy

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has an interview scheduled at Embassy in Syria early next month, for CR-1 Visa (I-130). My question is, during the interview, do they conduct it in English, or the native language? Cause my wife does not speak too much English, so I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this Embassy and if they do the interview in Arabic instead??

Please advise if anyone here has any knowledge of this.

Hi Trekkin,

Welcome to VJ! They will ask your wife which language she would like to use during the interview. Its ok that she doesnt speak much english, what is more important is that the two of you are able to communicate. For example, if you the two of you communicate in arabic than that is ok. However if you only speak english and she only speaks arabic they embassy will want to know how the two of you are able to communicate. This could be a possible red flag if you don't share a common language.

Good luck!
