Zimbabwe Embassy

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone...

Ive been researching this site for a while now and I figured its time for me to start posting. So last week I recieved my embassy case number from the NVC so i assume its time for interviews and such. I basically have two questions/concerns. I'm born and raised in the US. I have lived in Zimbabwe Africa for a portional of time and have had several horrible experiences wih the US embassy there. So therefore I'm concerned with what my fiance will have to go through. So I wanted to know if anyone has been dealt with Zimbabwe's US embassy using K-1.

Also I wanted to start sending my needed paper work to my fiance so I can "stay on top of things" and help smooth out the process but I wasnt sure which Affidavit of Support form to send. So anyone ideas/help/counsel/ or have any previous experience at this Embassy?

Zimbabwean US embassy is tough, they declined my mom twice for a visitor's visa. Now that I'm a US citizen I'm trying again, this time for her permanent residence (I-130). I'm waiting for NVC to approve her case and I'm nervous about her interview and would appreciate it if someone who has been through the interview can share their experience from Zimbabwe. And what type of questions they received. Thanks.
