K1 Interview in Venezuela

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi :) We are unsure if I the petitioner from the United States needs to be at the interview with my fiancee in venezuela? I will be flying to Venezuela in August to help her bring her things here to the United states. We are still waiting for the NOA2, but she should have the interview by april or may hopefully. We received NOA1 Nov. 10 2012. She is currently a doctor in Venezuela and speaks fluent English. It is explensive to fly there twice so does anyone think it is necessary for me to fly there again just for the interview? Thanks for you help

My fiancee is Venezuelan also. As far as I know, you don't need to be at the interview for a fiancee visa, but wait more experienced replies- we're just starting the process. I plan to be at our interview, but I don't think it is necessary- I just want to participate and I figure it can't hurt in terms of showing a relationship. Hope your journey goes well

Hey there!!

I don't think you need to be in the interview either. we haven't decided if I am going to be at the interview with my Fiance either.. some Embassies don't even let you go in if the appointment is not for you.. so it may even be a waste of time to travel other than for moral support but I am not sure if that is the case in Caracas!

keep us posted on what you decide to do :) we are right behind you guys!!

Good luck!

First, it’s not required for the petitionary (U.S. citizen) to attend the interview at the Embassy in Caracas (unless they specifically ask for she/him to be there). Second, bringing the petitionary to the interview might be a double-edge sword; good because it shows the existence of a real relationship but also on the other hand the CO might wants to interview both over and over.

It happened to us four years ago during our interview for the Fiancee visa. CO kept us there for about one hour interviewing us one at time to compare our answers. My daughter (9 years old then) who was included in the petition as K2 attended too, and the CO also interviewed her. So, it seems that this CO in particular likes talking to everyone that attends the interview regardless of age. However, not all CO work the same way. So, it’s up to you both to decide what is the most convenient.

Good luck.

Thanks everyone for the information. I decided I am not going to the interview. I feel confident she will do well :-) She speaks fluent English, She comes from an educated background and is currently a doctor. We have visited each others homes twice so we have lots of pictures. Also we do have a wedding date set for November 10 so those papers will help hopefully to show the relationship is real. With all that said, that's what is helping me come to this decision. I will visit her when she is on her way to move here and come back with her:-) I can't wait till that day :-) :-)

Hi Im a vzlan beneficiary, and they are right. Is not necesary. In my case, we rather to be together at the interview appointment :) He wanted to be with, but sure you'll not have any problems if you don't come.

The other thing I wanted to talk about is that Vnezuelan consulate take too long to give the interview appointment :s keep that in mind so you can organize well. I'm a september filler (Sep 19) and we recieved our Noa2 back on January 19 (amazingly 4 month thanks to vermont :D) and the Caracas embassy gave us our interview appointment to April 3rd. Almost 3 month later, thanks God we asked right away when NVC gave us our crs number.

So march and april is not a probable date for you. If you recieve your noa2 this month (hopefully :D) maybe by middle june. I thought that after we got aproved, that process would be shorter and quickly and its been 2 month since we got our NOA2.

After you get your NOA2 you have to call like a week later, call the NVC and ask for your CRS number (You need this number to ask for the interview appointment) and keep update about your package. When they say "it was delivered to caracas" wait like a week and THEN write them asking for your interview at immigrantcaracas@state.gov (check the website) adding all your numbers (receipt,crs etc) DONT WAIT FOR THEM, THEY DON'T CONTACT PEOPLE!!

Thanks god we didn't wait, but I heard from people who waited 2 month and nothing.

If you need anything let me know.
