Do both beneficiary and petitioner attend interview?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

Just wondering if it is necessary/helpful for both beneficiary and petitioner to attend the CR1 interview (London Embassy)? I am planning a trip to see my husband before too long (I'm going crazy waiting) and I just wanted to make sure I planned my visit accordingly if I needed to be at the interview.

Thanks!

It is not required but may be helpful depending on the consulate you are interviewing at. I would estimate equal numbers of CR1 visa applicants with and without their spouses where we interviewed (Montreal.) The Montreal consulate does allow the petitioner to be present but that is not the case in many others. Perhaps someone with experience at the London consulate will have some advice. Good luck.
