Consulate reviews

hello all,

 

Just my opinion, but it would be really advisable and helpful if those of you who have had experiences at the US embassy Ghana to review in detail to provide more insight for those who still await this process. The point of this forum is to receive all possible help. It is sometimes disheartening to see people who have been approved and choose not to even post their positive news to provide positive feedback for others. We are all in this process together, to help the next person. When it goes well for you, be kind to share your experiences with us all. Do not think that you've received yours so thats it. There were others here to help before you got your good news. All feedback even if negative is beneficial to the next person.

I agree with you, Andybella.

That fellow Ghanaians who have passed through this hectic US embassy in Accra, should at least give a brief story of their experience, but that is not the case,some of us  are too secretive and also superstitious as well.

Anyway, I'd wanted to write a review on my experience, but when I click on my timeline and on review, it tells me to register, but already a member. So I will write the review here to help someone going through this embassy in Ghana

While not dealing with the Embassy in Ghana obviously, I definately will support your desire for people to put in reviews and their experiences with all embassies. It is a very good source of specific information and gives people a small peak at what they may experience. Obviously a lot of people do write reviews; but there are so many that do not, and they really should.

Is this my first marriage?yes

How long have I been married.I answered

He asked me to take a sit and will hear my name at a different window for the interview and he wished me well

Exactly after about 10min I heard my name called at window 6.the CO was a white man and he greeted meand asked me to take a biometric only my left four fingers excluding my thumb. I raised my hand to take an oath ,whiles he was busy typing and checking something on his computer.

I want to believe that, the co take a decision, before the actual interview is done, or maybe only in my case.this is my opinion. I looked keenly on his desk to see my passport and my passport pics and didn't see,until he pulled out the blue sheet from a file that I saw it. 

Before he asked me any questions, he started given me my evidences,pushing it through the small outlet.

Now, these are the questions asked.

1) have you travel before.

2)is this your first marriage.

3)how many times have your husband visited?

4)How did you meet your husband.

5) what are his hobbies?

6) where does he work.

7) did he come for the christened?

8)describe the kind of person your husband is in the state? 

Well,  am approving your visa and pick it up in two weeks at dhl, at north ridge and not at the embassy. Hope this help someone in his/her visa journey. Please be confident and calm, not timid or afraid of the co. I remember i gave an answer to a question and he raised an eye brow and said no,no I don't like what you have rehearsed or someone has told you, that was question 8. 

Please do not lie ,look at his eyeball and not rush with your sentence.

All the best to everyone and more approved cases in Ghana

Honestly I didnt read the the reviews people wrote until a week before my husband interview, but I read almost every post that people posted on this forum. It took me a long time to start posting on here. Once I joined the group I read post from two years ago about how tough this embassy is
