Hello everyone,

My fiance is Polish but currently living in Scotland, so we applied for his visa through the embassy in London. We've sent in packet 3 and are waiting for an interview date. I'm concerned though because my fiance's English is not too good. Do any of you know if its possible to get the embassy to provide a translator for the interview? If not, will I be allowed to attend the interview and translate for him?

This waiting for an interview is rough! I'm going to call the DOS tomorrow thought to see if he's got a date yet. Thanks for your help!

I would contact the Embassy directly by email with your question.

The chances of the US Embassy in London having a Polish translator are slim. I would definitely email or call to find out. But requesting them to provide one in Polish is not their responsilibility. You can definitely attend the interview with your fiance though.

Hello,

I just wanted to post what I found out, in case anyone else ever runs into a similar problem.

I contacted the London embassy with my question via e-mail, after getting the secret code for the subject line of the e-mail over the phone. They responded to my e-mail the day I sent it. I was impressed by this.

They told me that he can provide is own translator, but that I need to give them the name of the translator before the interview so that that person will be allowed into the consulate.

I am going to give them both my name and the name of one of my fiance's bilingual friends so that if I can't attend the interview there is a back-up plan.

Thanks for your help and suggestions :-)!!!
