Welcome to the Islamabad, Pakistan - IR1/CR1 Visa Interview Thread

Hello all,

This is the interview thread I am opening for all the interview inquiries, reviews, experiences, questions and answers for Islamabad Pakistan embassy. I didn't find any specific thread related to Islamabad embassy so thought it will be a great idea to open up a thread where we can all go and get a valuable information from each other.

Please share your interview dates on this thread, post any question, share your interview experience, medical experience, and any other inquiries related to your interview. Lets help each other out through this hectic process.

Not all applicants are taken to the interview. Normally it's a glass window. But very few are taken to a room for detailed interview

I just want to knw how Interview room looks like :)

Interview room is usually a big room with lots of chairs and then there are windows where different CO sits and you get called by the token number you receive when you enter the embassy.

Please share the information of this thread and encourage them to post their questions and inquiries here as it will help many fellow Pakistani visa applicants.

Thank you and good luck with everything.

Thank you so much meandmine for the prayers and wishing the well being for me and my family :)

I know, I was having a hard time finding one platform where all Pakistani visa applicants could come to and get answers to their questions through experiences others have already went through.

Please share the information of this thread with other Pakistani visa applicants and encourage them to post their questions, interview experiences, timelines and any other inquiries here as it will help many fellow Pakistani visa applicants.

Thank you and good luck with everything.

My wife paid her fees in Rupees. You can call the medical center where you will be having your medical and ask them if they accept dollars. Good luck!

Great info

M worrying about my medical also i have a tonsils problem in winter specially dnt knw wht happnd :(

You will be fine. I don't think tonsils is too big of an issue during your medical but you can take some precautions and stay away from cold drinks and should gargle every night that will make things better. Good luck!
