Hello, 

 

My wife has her interview soon in the Abu Dhabi embassy for immigration. I know they offer Arabic/Farsi/Urdu/Hindi, but none of these language work for her can we bring our own? An interpreter over the phone, video conferencing, in-person or can I join here while she dose her interview so I can translate? 

 

 

Thanks

Marhaba,

I think you have to ask the Consulate in Abhu Dhabi either by calling or emailing them way ahead of time. In my own opinion, I dont think that they will allow you to be her interpreter as you have an interest in the outcome of the interview. They might think that it is bias.

But, there is no harm in asking way ahead of time. So you can prepapare and maybe hire someone that can legally and competently interperet without bias.

Goodluck,

NG

We tried to expedite it, but got rejected. They told us if we come to UAE they will expedite it, so we did so.

Sorry, for the late reply just been really busy.

 

We both went there on a visitor visa and scanned our passport to show we are there. It took us about 4-5 week to have our appointment set but it was set for 3 month ahead.  it basically took us about 5 month to get everything done.

Thanks for the reply, I just didn't get the visa part, so did you travel to UAE on a visa and then sent it to NVC to show that you were there and then after 3 months you got an appointment? did you have to stay there the whole time? 

or did you go visit and then went back to iraq or US to wait for the interview ?
