recent interviews for k-1

8 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I am curious as to how recent K-1 applicants who had their visa's approved interviews went. Anything specific did the CO ask? I know most people have different things that the CO asks but I'm just looking for some experiences because me and my fiance are a little nervous about the interview. Don't know what they will ask or how they will judge us, so anything would be helpful. Thanks ^_^

Just tell the truth, and you'll be fine.. You really cant prepare for something that you should already know. They'll ask how you met, so answer it.. They will ask where your fiance works, lives, etc.. all basic information that you should already know. Remember the CO are just trying to prove that you two are really in love (and know each other well enough) and plan to get married in the US and not just so you can go to the US to get a visa...

Also, if you prepare your evidences neatly in a folder with tabs, most likely they wont even ask you anything regarding the evidences. I took my interview and basically just ask simple questions like where we met, and where my fiance works.. and then jumped to what I do for a living in the Philippines. After about 3 questions, I was so at ease, coz it felt like just making conversation..

The pre-interviewer will ask most of the questions about the relationships, how, when and where it started, what's your fiance's job, his age, your work experience, have u ever been out of the country, and stuff like that, just the basics so nothing to worry about.

For the Consul, actually just the reiteration of some of the questions that the pre-interviewer asked. If there's no problem with the documents and the legimitacy of relationship, the most you can spend at the cubicle is 5mins and voila, visa approved! Good luck! :)

These are the common questions that are ask/ were asked to 99.9% fiance and spousal visa applicants. :yes:

My fiancée had her interview a few weeks ago, and it wasn't bad at all. She said the pre-screener looked at the documents, so the consul didn't even ask her many questions. She had a middle-aged, married woman as her consul, and she was very friendly and made the interview more like a conversation. I wasn't there, but my fiancée told me all the details, and the consul made her feel very relaxed. She really focused more on the personal side instead of the technical details since the pre-screener already examined those documents. She asked things like what's my name, how we met, when was the last time we met, and where do I work. She seemed to enjoy reading our story (and emails lol) from the original file I submitted to USCIS, and she even asked her questions like "Does your fiancée know Cebuano"? and "When did you go to Bohol? I've been there with my family", etc. It really made me smile when my fiancée said the consul told her we make a good team =).
