Interview in 7 days and SO nervous! Help!

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance's interview is in 7 days and I am SO nervous. I dont suppose I have any reason to think they we might get denied, but I just so want him to call me and tell me that he was approved. Im getting SO nervous about it.

Everyone says that London interviews are very laid back and quick.

Am I correct in thinking that the major approval part in back in the states waiting for the NOA2? Isnt that the main approval....or no?

Im freaking out here! lol :blink:

The main approval is the Consulate Interview.

Relax, it is always stressful, I worried about my wife's and she is Chinese not an English speaking Brit. As long as you both are prepared and know the answers it will go good. Peace


In Arizona its hot hot hot.

The interview is really just to make sure he is who he says he is, ask a few casual questions and that's it. Its not an interrogation and the officers are usually very friendly. Good luck. Nothing to stress out about. :)

People have misconceptions about the type of questions that they ask. Its just stuff like where did you meet rather than what colour is her toothbrush. Its the kind of questions that if you are a legit couple the answers should come naturally, they are not designed to trip you up. However if they see something in your file that they want clarification on they may ask about that too.

Chillax.

Its not an email but a letter from the embassy. Takes about 2-3 weeks after they receive your packet 3 and medical results. But you can call the deparment of state on 202-663-1225, tell them your LND case number and they'll tell you if/when the interview has been booked for. Good luck.

I googled sample questions and one was "who is your fiancee's supervisor?" I have always referred to her as my supervisor. I was thinking ummm uhoh. I told him as soon as we talked again but I suppose if they ask something like that you just answer "I don't know her name but I could tell you this about her..." so they can ask the other party a question to verify if they think something is up. So apparently we are worrying too much about it as well?

I have never heard of such questions being asked.

If I had been asked my response would have been I do not have a clue.

You are worrying too much. If you will look at the lighter blue menu bar at the top of the page and find Reviews:Embassy, there are 500+ reviews where many tell the questions they were asked in London. The only thing you need to worry about is showing up with the right documents like birth certificate, police certificate, Affidavit of Support, etc. You need no further proof of your relationship, engagement, emails, photos together. London does not look at them.
