Generally for Canada, there's only one interview. I've never heard of a 2nd interview for Canadians.

Your USC fiance can come if he/she wishes to.

i am not sure about how many interview/s for Canada. But here in the Phils, we only have one interview.

during my interview there were a few petitioners who went with their fiancee during the interview. i wound not say it is THAT helpful that the petitioner is present. there were 3 that were declined that day who were with the petitioner. your fiance being there with you doesn't guarantee approval. it is the documents that you present that still counts. if neither of you have been married in the past, well documented, then your interview will be a breeze!

if one / either of you have had marriages before, make sure that you have all the paperworks needed (marriage certificates and annulment / divorce papers) and make sure you know all information that might be asked about the previous marriage/s. there was one case where in the interview went as follows:

(the petitioner was present, this was during my interview date)

CO: "So how long has he been divorced?"

Benificiary: "About 5 years"

CO: "I see. how did you guys meet?"

B: "We met here last year during his vacation at Subic Bay and kept in touch since then."

-- CO asked couple other questions NOT related about the Petitioner's previous marriage --

CO: "Where will you stay when you get there?"

B: "At his apartment."

CO: "Who will be living with you?"

B: "Just the two of us."

CO: "What year was he divorced?"

B: "Uhmm.. 2002, i think"

This raised a flag -- she was hesitant to answer and was not accurate with the date she gave. She was asked several other questions and her fiance was not allowed to speak up for her. They were asked a few more questions and had a hard time with some other questions. I think their interview went on for like 25mins.

so yeah, not just because the petitioner is present means that you will be approved. make sure you are well documented and know all information about ur fiance (especially dates) and watch out for trick questions! lol!

you still have ample time to prepare your documents and know about everything you need to know abotu your fiance!! good luck!! <3

interview takes place at the consulate (or consular section of the embassy) - moving to US Embassy and Consular Discussion. You may also wish to check out the Canada regional subforum.


Improved USCIS Form G-325A (Biographic Information)

Form field input font changed to allow entry of dates in the specified format and to provide more space for addresses and employment history. This is the 6/12/09 version of the form; the current version is 8/8/11, but previous versions are accepted per the USCIS forms page.

Thanks for all the great replies. I am sure I can handle the interview alone. I just want my thoughts together and to get it over with smoothly, so I can get my visa and get moved.
