Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

first of all, admin I am terribly sorry if I am posting to the wrong place.

I have a couple of questions for an interview in Germany, IR-1 Visa.

I read somewhere that they ask for snapshots of chats, emails, phone call logs, etc. between me and my wife.

We do not have much chat and call logs as we have been living together for the past almost 3 years.

we have the following:

1- joint bank account.

2- joint family insurance.

3- city hall registration with both our names (in Germany when you live somewhere, you have to register in the city hall)

4- join tax declarations (filing taxes in Germany as married)

5- mails from drs., the government, etc. with both our names to the registered address.

6- pictures of us together in different countries, with family, etc.

7- boarding tickets to planes.

8- me and my wife are following the same religion.

9- I am 4 years older than her.

what else should we provide?

are like call logs etc. essential? Like we are living together.

thanks a lot guys and good luck to everyone.

p.s: how long does it take frankfurt consulate for an interview after CC?

I think you are all good, all those snapchats and facebook stuffs are easy to counterfeit, it might colorize your package but to be very helpful, I don't think so.

Hi, I did DCF through Frankfurt so all my paperwork was submitted before the interview, but on the day the CO only asked me what our wedding date was and how we met. I don't think you will have any problems with what you have. My husband and I had only been living together for one year when we started the process and we didn't submit ANY chat or phone logs from before we lived together and when he was deployed (we are military), we didn't get an RFE and we weren't asked for any of that stuff at the interview, although we were told that providing a joint lease/mortgage can be a big help.

Everyone at Frankfurt is really friendly and efficient, I was there about 90 minutes from start to finish and my passport was back with me within three days.

Good luck!

I'm from the UK, hubby is from Michigan and is a retired US Army Officer.   We are currently stationed overseas.
