The CO will ask the questions base on what is in your petition like Mrs Bonsu said and also whatever supporting evidence you provided that day. CO reviews your case file before the interview begins.

You don't need to know the questions beforehand if your relationship is real. You don't need to rehearse, you just answer truthfully to any question you get and you'll be perfectly fine.

Some people have commented that the evidence brought for the interview was never looked through. Is the beneficiary able to pull things out of the binder while interview is going on? like When applicable is it ok to demonstrate?

If the examiner asks a question that can be answered with a document or photograph(s) can it be pulled out:
For example, if the examiner asks, "What does your family think of your husband?", giving a picture of couple with your answer; "They like him very much. Here is a picture of him with my mother and father at my parent's home."

would this be allowed?

I really think it's gonna depend on the consular officer you get, some won't except this type of pics with your answer, most of the time they don't look at what you bring they mostly concentrate on what was recieved in your petition from NVC and that is also how they base the questions by what's in your file, no one can really say they may ask one person 10 questions and the next person they could only ask 2, we can only post based on experiences of our selves or people we may know, during the interview for my husband the consular asked us to bring things of certain proof and I printed those items out, while at the window she didn't wanna see these items that she asked for so I shoved them in her window, Was I wrong? Maybe, but she started with a bad and I ended with one, but don't follow my bad apple experience lol, I see people posting now that they are not letting us in with your fiancée or spouse, with they way they treat people in there in sure someone showed out far worse than I did, good luck ?

Try that at a job interview and see, how many skilled job interviews you nail.

It has nothing to do with real or fake.

If OP answers questions with long stories or long background stories, CO would cut the interview short and OP will miss the opportunity to land at the answers.

So you need to practice and know how to answer questions precisely and straight to the point.

When I see folks from easy embassy with this attitude like [ if it's real you get through]. How many of the divorce and marriage scams haven't you read about on here? Those "real' people got here. While genuine couples had to go through more than 2 times to get approved.

Go through the Ghana embassy reviews and see the type of questions they typically ask. That will give you an idea on how to prepare.

But in all, everyone agrees that truthfulness, confidence and brief answers should be your focus.

Good luck!

Most cases revolve around the same exact questions.. Name of fiance, name of petitioner, dates of birth, names of children, are you engaged, were you ever arrested, dates of your fiance divorce, kids names what are your plans, etc etc, 99% comes right off of your application and any questions might be generated from that.

You should prepare so you wont be nervous. You need to look cool and confident, look them in the eye. Know your fiance and they should know you.

Obviously you've never been through Ghana embassy, they don't use a book and will lie to your face and make up issues!

No I have not been through the Ghanna embassy but have friends that experienced it. These higher fraud countries are always difficult, but I haven't heard anyone that the CO is pulling things out of thin air. They are basing things on your application or trends that country specific things experience. That's why preparation is important and examining country pages to see what others experience. It's a shame that a few unscrupulous people make it hard for the honest ones.

You don't need to know the questions beforehand if your relationship is real. You don't need to rehearse, you just answer truthfully to any question you get and you'll be perfectly fine.

not true. practice practice practice. and word your answers wisely too. i know because i have a real relationship and we have been through that embassy. for instance the question of, " have you had a knocking?". instead of " no" which is the only answer the consular wants to hear. you say " no not yet, that will be done once i get there" that makes it completely different because now you told the counsular that , hey a plan to have such an important part of the traditional custom will take place, it just hasn't happened yet. more convincing than a plain no with no feeling.

also make sure your answers are short but informing, however not robotic. practice ways of answering it. Ghanaians tend to be pretty timid when talking to americans. maybe because of an accent they may or think they have. so when you practice , even if you speak the best english , your answers will be clearer and just sound better. and when nervousness strucks. someone can ask you if you have kids and though you may not have any, you spit out a number hahahahah and then your like " maame sorry i did not hear you " trust me if you do anything like that, " DENIED" so please listen. go through the ghana portal you will see questions and also my portal, i put a lot on there. and if i am not mistaken, i sent you a whole list already lol good luck.
