Hi Everyone. My husband had his interview on September 10th, 2012 at the US Consulate in Tirana, Albania. After reviewing all his paperwork (all updated) the officer had asked him the following questions:

1- How long have you been married?

2- How many times has your wife traveled to Albania during this time?

3- Where were your children born? (We have two daughters together, both born in USA)

4- What does your wife do for a living in USA?

My husband had worked in Greece for 5 years prior to our marriage and they wanted the police certificate from Greece, which my husband had provided (by obtaining it in person from Greece), but apparently the US Embassy wanted him to apply for it through the Greek Embassy in Albania and then the Greek Embassy had to forward it to the US Embassy. That process lasted 3 weeks. The US Embassy called my husband this morning to tell him that his visa was approved and that he needs to send his passport in to receive the visa. We are extremely happy right now :dance::dance::dance:

Thank you so much to everyone here for all of your support. Good luck to you on your journey waiting to be reunited with your loved ones. I know it is a long, painful and stresful journey, but in the end....IT IS ALL WORTH IT :)
