5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello guys, 

 

I needed to know what happens after waiver has been approved and they have set up the appt. Do you have to do medical exam in the host country or would it be okay if i did it in the United States. I wanted to do at least the vaccines in the US that way only thing left would be the exam itself if i have to do in the my home country. Would we expect the decision at the end of the interview or afterwards.... is there a guide for what kind of question they would ask... 

 

I am really anxious/nervous/scared any help would be helpfull... 

 

Thanks

The medical exam must be done by an embassy-approved panel physician. This would be a facility within the country where you interview.

 

The CO may or may not say you are approved after the interview. Either way, nothing really matters until CEAC shows the visa as Issued, which would only occur after the interview and they complete processing & printing.

 

The exact process varies by embassy.

Oh okay is there guides on how to do well for interviews ... what kind of question they would ask and all ? 

The questions they ask vary heavily form case to case, but they are generally things one in a bona fide relationship will know (and if not, then just answer as such). Things like when/where did you meet, what do you like to do together, questions about previous meeting s and travel, questions about how you communicate, etc.
