"Detailed Personal Interview"?????

55 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I have our interview scheduled at the US embassy in Bogota Colombia on May 3, 2019.  When the NVC transferred our 129-F application to the embassy there was the following remark written in RED INK.... "Age gap, Detailed Interview".

 

My question to my fellow visajourney members is have any of you had similar remarks on your 129-F?  If so, what king of interview questions were you asked that differed from the routine?  Were both the beneficiary and Petitioner interviewed?

 

After all the time, work and stress put into this process, I'm now stressing even more about the idea of a "DETAILED INTERVIEW"...

 

Help? Suggestions?  or advice would be greatly appreciated.

How were you able to see the processed I-129F petition after it was transferred to the Embassy??? I don't recall having anything sent to us at that stage of the process or do you know someone who works at the Embassy who  gave you that info???

A copy of the 129-F along with instruction packets 3-4 were emailed to my fiance after he submitted his DS-160

Different consulate but if it is any consolation,  I am walking around the mall of America right now with my fiancee and our age gap is greater 

Indeed that is consolation. Did you have a detailed interview? Why were you denied on your first interview? was it related to age or the interview?

Wow thats a first.  Perhaps every consulate works differently but it’s almost good that you have that heads up.  Thanks for sharing with us all.

The common ones, About how we meet, where we were married, who was there, if I meet her family.  Questions about my job.

 

Then about where we traveled together and why we were living in Mexico.

 

It wasn't too hard.

WOW!  That is almost frightening, those questions were so random and crazy... When was your city founded????? How many employees in your company????  I am so glad you got approved, but now I'm more nervous than ever.
