Being stressed and overly worried isn't going to help, the CO will pick up on your nervousness. Try to be relaxed and prepared, answer honestly. The consulate knows that newly married couples don't have a lot of intermingling finances, especially when living in separate countries, not having a joint bank account at this point won't result in a denial, it will be more important at the removal of conditions stage. As long as you have plenty of evidence spanning the entirety of your relationship will suffice. If you have visa stamps in your passport showing the dates you arrived and departed in your wife's country, along with corresponding boarding passes is strong evidence, I would bring copies of those. Other than that what you have seems to be enough. Just try to be as relaxed as possible, dress nice, be respectful and honest. Remember the interview is for your wife, not you, so try not to keep her calm, tell her to be confident and truthful in her answers and I bet she'll do great. Good luck!!!

Don't worry you will do fine! I brought tons of evidence of relationship for my fiancee's visa interview, and they never asked to see any of it. They just asked her a lot of questions about us, and our relationship. We were approved no problem.

Hey, just relax, from all the reviews here it see,s they will ask a few questions to your wife which she should know. Just keep your calm. Bring the proof you mentioned earlier, make sure that the police certificate is the latest available from the website. I really wish you the best. Keep in touch, I will be expecting a review for the medical and stuff , my wife is traveling to bogota late jan to do everything on her own.

I filed for my Colombian Husband and had my interview in Bogota. Everything went as smooth as it could.(I got denied because I miscalculated the amount my sponsor made and it wasnt enough money :( worst day ever! but it was my own fault that day my sponsors wife filled out a second affidavit of support and mailed it to us and we got it to the embassy ASAP! there was no need for a second interview. My first interview was in September and my husband was here in November so the hiccup cost me two months) I only submitted The required paperwork of course, photos, proof of expenses from our wedding, proof of travel(which was only 3 trips including the one where we were married), chat history, and that's about it :) Being nervous is totally natural. You have been waiting so long and want things to go well so bad it's to be expected. lol Just go in knowing you are doing all of this out of love and it will show :) they barley talked to me(the U.S Citizen) anyways hehe The most important thing is that you are very very organized! The interviewers love that! I used dividers with colored tabs to separate everything in the order shown in the instructions. I think you'll be fine though. If your on this website writing about how your worried obviously you care ;) Good Luck!!!!
