Visa Interview--Approved!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good day to you all,

Thank you Visajourney. You've all been a tremendous help to us. Many thanks to those who answered my questions and provided great feedback. Special thanks goes to Saylin during the NVC process.

My wife's visa interview in Vietnam was quick and easy. Only a few questions were asked.

- How, when did you meet your spouse?

- What does he do?

- Where does he live?

- Who attended the wedding? How many?

- How many times did your husband visit you in Vietnam?

Stuff like that. Nothing too serious or tricky. I think my wife got it easy because we had it prepared pretty well ahead.

I don't know about other countries, but I think the consulate in Ho Chi Minh City no longer hands out the pink slip. They'll take your passport at the interview and will send it back to your address with the visa attached.

Good luck to you all!

Total Time: 260 days from NOA1 to Visa Interview/Approved.
