~Moved from K1 Process to Caribbean Regional Forum~

~At this stage of the process, instructions/requirements are often embassy-specific~

(organizer hat off)

The DOS K1 visa FAQs are somewhat vague about your specific inquiry: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/immigrate/types/family/fiance-k-1.html

Suggest that either you contact the embassy, or see what responses you receive at the regional forum. Hopefully there are similarly-situated folks that know the embassy-specific process at SDO.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

If a child is following to join do they need to attend the interview and does their visa fee need to be paid with the beneficiary.

For the Dominican Republic, if the children are following to join (meaning that they will travel at a later date after the main K-1 Visa holder is in the US) ... then they do not have to attend the interview ... nor is any additional money you need to pay for them. You will need the children's birth certificates.

Please refer to this wonderful D.R. guide that MrTee12 has put together. http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/Dominican_Republic:_After_Receiving_the_NOA2
