Visa Interview-US Consulate Sydney

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone on here attend the visa interview in Sydney with their husband/wife/fiance'?

I emailed US Consulate asking them if I can attend my husband's visa interview, to my suprise they told me I was welcome to attend the interview. I want to be there to support my husband during the interview...but this just means there will be two of us very nervous individuals to screw it up instead of just one of us. What do you think? :help:

You should change your flag if you're interviewing in Australia. the flag is about where you're processing, not nationality (so people give country specific advice)

If you want to go to the interview feel free. Australia is very easy so it's not required but if you want too feel free. You'll be surprised how relaxed they make you feel once you're there. Plus if your relationship is valid you have nothing to be nervous about or to "screw up".

Our relationship is legit...this whole process is nerve wrecking.

Trust me I felt the same until the interview. They were just so nice and smiley and friendly... immediately put at ease. They don't try and trick you (not on purpose anyway... my guy looked at my FIL's name instead of fiance :P) and it's simple. please feel free to read my review and others from Aus. When he told me I was approved I was like... soo... that's it? lol. It seemed so anticlimactic after the stress I put myself in!

Thanks for changing your flag :) This will also mean your posts come up in the Aussie portal :D

Thank you for suggesting I change my flag and for your reply. I'll try to put my mind at ease.

If you're concerned regarding the age difference etc., visit the India forums and definitely attend the interview if you're able. Sydney's an easy place to interview at if you're Australian, but since your husband is Indian on a study visa it may differ for you.

Best of luck and fingers crossed for both of you ... :star:
