Yep...the beneficiary is interviewed...and sometimes the petitioner goes along for support. I, for one, plan on being there in Montréal, if the interview is when I can get off work :)

Yep, the Beneficiary is the only one the is interviewed. I was able to attend my fiances interview in Egypt and I was not allowed to say HI or BOO! If you are planning to attend the interview you should check with the embassy first. Some embassies do not allow the fiance to even walk inside the door. :huh:

At my K-1 interview, my fiance was allowed to go with me and stood right beside me during the whole interview process. He was asked a few questions too, but they were mainly interested in me, the foreign fiance.

I was glad he was there to be with me for support and to calm my nerves a little. No one else had their fiances with them at their interviews on the day I was at the Vancouver Consulate, so I felt very lucky to have mine there.

Good luck and best wishes at your interview.

Actually if you're in Montreal, you'll get interviewed as well as it usually ends up that the USC gets asked more questions then the alien fiancee will. But technically, only the alien fiancee is required to be present for the interview.

If you go thru the Dominican Republic, it is highly reccomended that the USC fiance attend the interview. I hear that it's a sure denial if you don't.


Julia and Hector

9/26/04 Met Hector in Sint Maarten

talked on the phone until....

12/27/04 - 1/10/05 Flew to the DR to visit him and his family

1/11/05 - We were engaged!

2/11/05 - Sent 129F to

3/7/05 - APPROVED!!!!

3/21/05 - forwarded to Santo Domingo

3/29/05 - DR Embassy received case and mailed packet but they can't tell me what it contained. DR has changed procedures in March and no one really knows what the changes are.

4/20/05 - called the Embassy, they said they will not mail out another packet until a month after they mailed the first one. That would be 4/29/05

4/29/05 - Called again and turns out that they made a mistake. They will not send out a package until an appointment is scheduled.

2/28/06 - Called the NVC and I have an interview 4/17/06! YEAH!!!

Anything can happen at these interviews and the policy changes at each embassy and with each embassy officer. There is "NO" steadfast answer to your question. Be prepared and go if you can make it to the interview. As Peter in Miami said in Bogota they do routinely ask questions to the petitioner if they show up at the interview. As of recent an immigration attorney who handles many Fiance visas is telling his clients to make the trip if possible. That's not to say you won't get an approval if you don't show but showing up at the interview shows alot about the relationship to the CO :yes:

Congratulations on your upcoming interview! The Embassy in Santo Domingo received my husband's I-129F on October 12, 2005 (or at least that's when they logged it). As of February 28, 2006, he was #14,000+ on the waiting list. Did you track the progress on line? I guess we are looking at the end of this year for an interview.
