After reading the topic of denied visa at second interview now I wonder...

I knew my wife for 2 years from just skype and emails.. I went to visit her to complete Fiancee visa and we decided to marry when I was there.. I was there for only 11 days..

We went to a banquet at the American Embassy and discussed our options with the consulate..

I have plenty of receipts from buying flowers, gifts etc..,. Tons of skype logs and emails. I am 56 and the wife is 50.. I hear about red flags and now I worry about her interview.. Georgia is not a high risk country when it comes to visa so I hope this helps...

in high fraud countries, like China, Morocco, Nigeria, this can be a problem.

For other countries, with low fraud rates, this is not so big of an issue.

IMO, it's country specific.

For China, (again IMO), 3 visits prior to interview day seems to be a good thing, but as always, it's the totality of the casefile that's important.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Brother Darnell is correct. Furthermore, your ages (as quinquagenarians) are also not typical of those of fraudsters.

quinquagenarians--now there is a word I haven't seen in a very long time, but you may not be aware of the rule that once you become a quinquagenarian (assuming you can pronounce it), you forevermore are allowed to divide your age by two, so if you are let's say 56, then of course you may tell everyone that you are 28 !! Makes it ever so much easier to be one of those quinquagenarians !!

No, you're not tired; you're a quadragenarian, si man.

I was tired yesterday and am tired again today, so that makes me re-tired, si man.

There is nothing wrong with that.

You look a bit old in that photo , so why not say yes after the 1st visit ???

It is ABSOLUTELY your and her right to do so .

As long as your wife also feels the same way about you . They will ask her a lot of questions to be sure that her marrying you is not for immigration purpose only. This is essentially what the law is concerned about . Everything else is bull.

I am sorry to speak so blunt . Just want you to feel confident.

is the casefile your referring to the stuff we send in prior to the interview?? or is it the evidence we bring into the interview to show them?? Thanks, Long.


To quotes a movie, “So how does it happen, great love? Nobody knows... but what I can tell you is that it happens in the blink of an eye. One Moment you're enjoying your life, and the next you're wondering how you ever lived without them.” I felt I found something with Kieu that is rare in life... true love.

Brusik...

Dont worry about it! People do that quite frequently. I knew my husband just short of two years via skype, facebook and phone. I went over in february and everything that I thought I felt for him was intensified in person! SO WE GOT MARRIED!!! Who wouldn't want to get married in such a beautiful place such as Georgia ;) We got married in Sighnaghi and let me tell you that NO place in the USA could produce such a georgeous background for our wedding pics! Ya simply cant help falling in love!!!

That being said, all you need to do is show them you are in love! Print out everything you can think of to show a consistent ongoing relationship and you should be fine. Georgia is not a high fraud country and as a nation are usually considered to be very honest, hard working, hospitable people! (I know my hubby is lol) I just dont foresee this to big a stumbling block. If anything maybe you can set a precedence in the consulate so mine will seem normal when it comes across their desk in a month or so.

Good Luck and Stay Confident!!!
