Welcome. My fiance Mohammed and I are going through Cairo on K1. His interview was on 3/30 and we are now waiting out his processing. If I remember properly, it took about 2 weeks for our papers to move from NVC to the Embassy. Then about 3 or 4 weeks for him to get his papers from them to schedule his interview. The interview took about 2 months to schedule after the Embassy received his papers.

You will find lots of helpful people here. If you have specific questions, let me know. I know this is a stressful thing. The waiting is so hard. I haven't seen Mohammed for one year now. What type of visa did you interview for in 2000?

Honestly, the Embassy won't try to make trouble for your case on purpose. Their job is just to be sure there is no fraud. It might be a good idea to sit down with your fiancee and think of any type of "red flag" that may be on your case. A red flag would be something the Embassy might see as strange or odd.

Example, a red flag for Mohammed and I is that I am older then he is. The Embassy will look at this closely and in the interview they asked Mohammed specific questions regarding his feelings about our age difference.

If you are gathering up all the proof you can, that's a good thing. Be sure to keep a copy of EVERYTHING in case you might need it in the future.

I have children too. Take any proofs with you of contact with her children such as chats, pictures they send you, things like that. Other members here are in very similar situations and have gotten their visas approved.

I can really understand your panicks. Mohammed and I both suffer them too. Just stay close to your habebe, stay patient with each other even when you want to scream with frustration, and alhamdulellah you will get through this even closer together then you are now.

Please feel free to come here any time and post about anything if it helps you. We all support each other so feel free to share.

Do you have msn, yahoo or an email address? If so, I can pass it on to my husband. I'm sure he would be willing to fill you in on what he knows about the Cairo Embassy from first hand experience. His interview was last July.

Welcome Michael! There are others who can tell you more about Egypt than I can, but I wanted to add I doubt your refused tourist visa will be a problem. Many of our partners had been refused tourist visas in the past and it hasn't been a problem for anyone that I've seen.

Welcome to VJ,

I don't know much about filing for K-1 visa since my husband and I went the DCF route. I just wanted to say good luck to you and your fiancee and that my husband is from Alex, Egypt too. It was very beautiful there when I last visited there.

Another piece of information, just relax and breathe. Theres no need for you to drive yourself to panic this early in the process. You and your fiancee should practice some techniques so that you won't be so nervous or panic at interview time.

I haven't ever heard of the Cairo consulate not looking at evidence. That seems to be a Morocco/Casa thing.

My husband's advice is to remain calm and wear a suit for your interview.

Also, be patient :) The visa process takes awhile, so no need to freak out. Freaking out increases your stress level and I'm sure you have enough stress as it is.

While you're waiting for the visa process to go through, start tying up your life in Egypt. If you graduated from college, get your certificate certified. My husband got a bunch of stamps on his from his university to prove that it is legit. Also, look into taking an english class to fill your time while you're waiting. Improving your english will definately help to get jobs here. If you have any bosses or professors that you want to serve as your references for jobs here, get their permission, have them write a letter of recommendation and get their phone/email.

Above all, remain calm! No sh!t will hit the fan inshaAllah.
