Interview Day In A Couple Days

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My interview is in a couple days. It is set for 8:30am.

How early should I get there?

Is 6:30am too early?

Can my sister enter the embassy with me?

Is there a waiting area for people who are accompanying you?

Are we broken up into groups when we get in: CR1, K1, K3 etc?

Is there a waiting area for people who are accompanying you?

:unsure::unsure:

i think 1 hr early is fine.. :thumbs:

NO, your sister cant go inside the USEM.. :no:

there is a so-called waiting area for your kasama, but then it's outside.. :(

hmmm, im not sure abt the group thingy..

i think when u enter USEM, there's a line for every case..

but for the interview none, ive noticed it's by appointment..

cos my CO interviewed a family before me..

and before them a girl under k3..

goodluck and godbless.. :dance:

Good Luck on your interview. You cannot bring a "kasama" inside and they will have to wait outside. But the petitioner can accompany the applicant, and he/she just have to present his/her US Passport to the Guard. I had my interview at 6:30am and me and my husband went to the Embassy at 4:30am and there's already a long line waiting. CR/IR and K visas are processed the same way, there's a different area for the non-immigrant/tourist visa applicants.

Hello,

At least be there an hour before your interview. Your sister can't go inside USEM. She can wait for you outside USEM, there's this somehow waiting area with vendors around. When you get in, ask the guard where to line up for k1 visa interview. USually, it's a short queue.

Goodluck on your interview.
