Successful CR-1 interview in Paris

So here is my review (while memory is fresh):

:star: :star: :star: :star: :star: Five stars to the embassy in Paris!..

IV appointments start at 1 pm, but the guards will let you in if you are a little early - so no need to que in the cold (or rain). If you brought food/drink/any electronic equipment with you - it will be checked in and you can have it back on your way out.

I got inside a waiting room and took a ticket (my place in virtual line, I was first). I was called to the windows three times:

1 - turn in my ticket number and appointment letter.

2 - hand in one by one all the documents listed in packet four. I was also asked to show my French residency card - Titre de Sejour. The lady was French and very nice and thorough. She seemed to be surprised that I had everything right. :lol: I was also asked if I or my husband have children and if we had previous marriages.

3 - interview with consul. I was asked 5 questions: How long have you been married? How long have you known each other? How did you meet? What is you profession? Why do you want to live in the US?

My answers were found satisfactory ;)

I was not asked to show ANY evidence of ongoing relationship, although I brought in like 6 pounds of it. I am sure the consul saw my many folders... and made a wise choice not to get too close to it :lol:

She said "we have everything we need to approve your visa, you will receive it in 7-10 days and do you have any questions?"

With that we happily parted our ways...

Thank you VJ!

Sorry, yes,

I had to give fingerprints - there was a little scanner at the third window and consul took my prints before asking the five questions.
