Called back for second interview after 2 year wait

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When my fiancé and I were first dating, he applied for a tourist visa to come and visit me in the US. He is a Norwegian citizen but born in Iran, so was told he would need to undergo additional background checks and has been in AP ever since the interview two years ago.

 

The other day, he received an email from the embassy requesting him to come back for a second interview.

 

We were pretty surprised as we had moved on to AP for our fiancé visa and had pretty much given up hope on the visitor visa.

 

We are not sure what to expect at this second interview, but guessing he needs to bring updated proof of his intent to return back to Norway in the event they are ready to grant him a visa - does anyone have any insight as to why they would call him back to the embassy after this long?

There is no way of knowing.

Let me get this straight,

1. the beneficiary filed for visitor visa to come to US 2 years ago and has been in AP since.

2. September 2018 beneficiary had K1 interview and is in AP since

3. Now you say you were called in for 2nd interview. Well that would be for the K1. 

 

Make sure he has proof of his residency in Norway when he goes (Resident card, whatever you have in that country to prove he is a legal resident).

 

All he can do is go and see what's up.

Thanks for the response - yes, you are correct, but his visitor's visa interview was done at the embassy in Oslo, Norway. Our fiancé visa interview was done in Stockholm, Sweden, as the embassy in Norway does not handle fiancé visas.

The Oslo embassy is the office that is asking him back for a second interview regarding his visitor's visa.

I guess we'll just wait and hope it's good news.

So he was never denied a tourist visa, just entered into ap? Wonder if they’re looking to deny him his b2 at second interview to continue to process your k1?

Why would they go to the trouble of an interview just to deny a visa?

That's what I was thinking. They will never approve a visitor visa while a K1 is in progress.

That’s not true. It’s more difficult, sure, but people have been issued them.
