If all submissions are to NVC, what is needed at...

OK, I am a bit confused. I have gone thru the Fiancee Visa process before, and many documents were required at the interview at the US Foreign consulate along with the interview. Now, with the I-130 approved for my Kenyan wife, and just waiting on the NVC to get the case, I provided tons of documents with the I-130 to "prove" our marriage and ongoing relationship (up to the time of the I-130 submission). I was approved. Now I know I have to prepare and submit my financial documents to the NVC, and my foreign wife submits her visa/immigration application to them also, along with support documents. (At least I think that is what happens) I will act as agent, and submit her documents when the time comes, as I have already downloaded and had her fill them out and I brought them signed, back with me when I visited her last.

OK sorry for rambling, but I guess my question is, outside of the medical, which will be done in her country, what am I to expect at the interview? I plan to go, but will I be required to provide vast additional quantities of documents showing our ongoing relationship? Is the interview process as abusive and difficult as it sometimes is for a fiancee visa?

I think it is a good idea for you to attend and becuase it can alleviate any problems or suspicions. I would HIGHLY advise you to bring as much evidence a spossible becuase I have seen many people sent to obtain more evidence of a bonafide relationship. I would consider evidence of financial support, your passport with your visits, emails, chat histories, evidence of gifts and anything else you can think of. I found them to very rude there and suspicious of everyone. Also, the process will probably be a 2 day.

Prepare your self well!

Oh, I will prepare myself well. What do you mean "the process will probably be a 2 day"?? I know we will have to come back to pick up the visa.

Gene, as of December the process has changed at the Nairobi Embassy. The nolonger allow US citizens to accompany their foreign wives to the interview without an appointment. As you time approaches, please contact the embassy to make an appointment - to avoid inconviniences at the embassy.

All the best. We wish you a speedy process. You are in our prayers.

Do I need to wait until an interview date is set, and then contact the embassy for an appointment for both of us??

Have the interview date first. Then set the appointment for both of you. Inform them that you are accompanying your wife for the interview - incase the ask the reason for your appointment.

OK, so I want to be very clear in my understanding. An Interview date is set (as normally done) and the beneficiary is notified. At that point I contact consulate and ask for an appointment for BOTH OF US, and this appointment (for both of us) will take the place (instead of) of the standard interview that would happen without me?

You have to have your own appointment letter to get into the embassy. if you dont have you will be left waiting outside. Once you receive her appointment date - email the embassy with a request to accompany your wife to the interview on that date. Ask them to reply with a confirmed appointment with both your names - without that you may be barred from entering the embassy. The rules were changed in December of last year.

Thanks, that is the precise type of detail I was looking for. Can I assume there will be less "intimidation" of the wife with her U.S. Citizen husband present?
