London/UK Interviews

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is there anybody here whose Beneficiary had his/her interview in London/UK? What sort of questions were asked? How long did the interview take, and what was requested in terms of documentation?

This question is coming waaaaay in advance of when we'll need it, but it will help us to know what is most imperative for us to save, and what we need to do/get in the next few months that we don't already have. Thanks in advance for your input!

My husband had his last Friday...July 28th

We filed a CR1...

Questions were:

Were you in the military?

Have you ever had an alias?

When will you be moving to New York to be with your wife ?

That was it.

No questions pertaining to the relationship, how we met or any other supporting evidence was ever asked for.

Not to say this happens to everyone...

I sent him with joint bills, our bank acct statements, photos, e-mails, our wedding invitation - to our surprise, it was quite simpler than we imagined.

Some folks have been asked for pictures, and aksed how they met.

London is quite easy-nothing like the inquisitions that occur elsewhere...

Do not worry, and best of luck for a speedy journey.

All The Best,

There's an entire thread dedicated to London and the interviews there. See the 'Foreign Embassy and Consulate discussion' section of this board. Also the UK regional section of the board is good for all UKers to browse.
