Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.]1st Cor 13: 4-7

The US Embassy has waived the requirement of scheduling interview for my mother so I was told she can go any day from Mon-Fri. Her medical isn't cleared yet though so I'm planning to call the US Embassy tomorrow to find out if she can get the interview ahead of the medical clearance if her sputum test returns negative tomorrow. If they let her, then she'll go for an interview on Monday, Oct. 15 and I'll let you know what they ask her. Otherwise, please let me know what they ask your in-laws please. :)

How did you get the requirement to schedule an interview waived? I have never heard of that. I thought the NVC had to schedule it.

I requested for an expedited processing from NVC and they forwarded my request to the US Embassy. The US Embassy approved it so NVC sent my papers over to the US Embassy without scheduling an interview date. The US Embassy then told me to come whenever my mom's medical has been completed.

Is there anyone who can let's us know what questions my wife's parents will get at the interview? This is for parents of a US citizen. Do they need to bring anything? Any tips would be great.

Basically, the consul would ask about your parent-child relationship. I will post the questions my hubby was asked during his interview (his father was his petitioner). Maybe it's safe to assume that your parents will also be asked the same, just in reverse.

1. What's the name of your petitioner? Petitioner's date of birth and place of birth?

2. What's your relationship with your petitioner?

3. When did your petitioner go to the US?

4. How did your petitioner acquire his green card/permanent resident status?

5. What does your petitioner do for a living?

6. Where does your petitioner live? (Give exact US address)

7. Who are the members of your petitioner's household? Their jobs?

8. When did your petitioner naturalize?

9. When was the last time your petitioner visited the Philippines?

Your parents must bring original copies of (they should have their own copies since they will be interviewed individually):

- your (petitioner's NSO birth certificate)

- their NSO birth certificate

- their NSO marriage certificate

- NBI clearance

- petitioner's latest ITR and W2

- their pictures together with the petitioner

Is all of this really needed? I thought they already had all of these things. With parents of a US citizen don't they just need to show up for the interview. Maybe bring a few family photos.

The consuls can ask for any document regardless if they were already submitted to NVC or not.

Better to be prepared than to go thru AP.

Being the immediate relative of a US citizen doesn't make an applicant immune from the consul's scrutiny.

Good luck. :innocent:
