Second Interview

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi...we are waiting to hear back about when our second interview will be after responding to an RFE from the first interview.

Has anyone else had to go back for a 2nd interview? How long after you submitted RFE materials via the courier provided were you notified of its date? I know there is a 4 month legal time frame from when I-129F is approved and for when visa has to be issued..and that is quickly approaching...

Also..if anyone HAS had to go to a second interview to discuss RFE (proof of relationship et al.)...how did it go? Same person? Similar questions? Deeper questions? Longer? Shorter?

Trying to give my fiance some peace of mind and any shared experiences would be really helpful!

Thank you!!

Joseph22,

A second interview, following a request for evidence from a Consular Section is unique, yet not unheard of.

I would surmise that this "particular" evidence requirement is the reason. After the evidence is evaluated, the interview should be based around it only.

Are you willing to share the evidence requirement, for the education of VJ?

Edit to add: By the way, a Consular Officer can extend the validity of your I-129F approval. Rest easy on that.

Joseph I have heard of second interview after submitting the evidence. They may ask more questions and depending on what evidence you submit they may also have one or more persons interview you at this time. If they are satisfied they will issue the visa if all the security checks have completed and came back clear. Good luck.

Ok..so to give you a bit more information...

...The guy that interviewed her told her that once she submitted the materials, he would contact her.

Now, after thinking about this, I'm wondering if she interpreted it as a 2nd interview, when that isnt what was implied. The paper she was given was literally a copy of the things you bring with you that she HAD brought..(I-134, birth cert, all that stuff, and then a few items to RFE)

The thing is, they DIDNT keep her passport at the first interview, so it seems that no matter what happens, if there was going to be an approval after reviewing the stuff, that she'd have to go back right? Or would they request she courier the passport in at a later date?

The information requested was additional evidence of our relationship prior to engagement and copy of previous passport/I-94 regarding the time she was denied entry at POE for unathorized work. We had checked that there was no ban on her or anything for that (voluntary departure...application withdrawn) so perhaps they wanted her to help them review quicker any possibility that she'd need a waiver based on that trip...but no waiver was mentioned at all during first interview. What was really going on whas the officer was atleast making her feel like that previous trip was signifying that our engagement was for immigration purposes, which of course is not.

So...I guess then we wait to see what type of notice they provide to us....whether it IS actually another appointment, or if it is documentation. I guess the best case scenario would be a request to courier the passport in cuz its been approved!!!! Praying for that!!!!

Does any of this help any of you see where this might be going?
