Your fiance cannot do his interview in Iraq. This means he must do it in another country. He needs to start trying now. My husband was rejected three times before he finally got into a country that would allow him in. None of the countries want to let Iraqis in anymore because they have too many Iraqi refugees already. For your fiance's sake, he must begin trying if he will want to make his appointment. You can chose where you want his interview to be and if you have to, you can change the embassy location. NVC considers Iraqis statelss so they don't have to provide proof of residence in order to do their interview somewhere.


Married: May 28th, 2007

Arrived in the US: December 10th, 2008

I asked the NVC before and I was told I need to write an email with my wife's current address and where I want here interview to take place.

Anyway I didn't try it. If you look at the NVC web site you can see Iraqi applications are handled by four US embassies (Jordan, Egypt, Morocco and Turkey). I believe it is doable but you have to do it ahead of time to get an answer.
