Recommended Posts

HI everyone ! I'm pleased to bring ya'll GREAT NEWS! today I went to the Kingston consulate to do my Beneficiary Interview aka followup interview.

I arrived at 12PM at the consulate and gave one of the baggage holders my bag. My 221G paper was checked and then I proceeded through security. I waited for about an hour in the court yard before I went inside the consulate. Inside, I handed over my documents ( Christening certificate / High School registration form ). I was told to sit at the back . I waited for about 30 minutes or so, then my name was called randomly. The consular asked :

Why do I want to go to the USA ?

Have I always lived with my father ?

what happen to my biological mother ?

How long my dad and step mom have been married ?

Are they living together ?

Why aren't they living together ?

Guys I'm so sorry I can't remember the rest. Tip : for every question that I answered I tried to expound on it so that the interview can be shorter . It's not advisable to do it all the time, you just have to know when to do it.

Over all it was a GREAT INTERVIEW! At the end the CO said that "everything looks ok " and asked how i will collect my VISA.

I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to all those who helped me during this process :)

TO MY FELLOW FILERS WAITING : God has answered my prayer and he will answer yours just BELIEVE ! :)
