Everything went well and they asked him questions about our relationship, how long we've known each other, how many times we've met. He was done in 1.5 hours. Thank you God

The embassy in Abu Dhabi was quite pleasant. Everyone was polite. I would get there as early as you can as everyone has the same appointment time and you line up outside and wait to get in. So the sooner you get there the sonner your papers start getting processed. They have a shaded area to sit in line and up towards the front they do have fans which can help quite a bit when the heat is bad. I did accompany my fiance for his interview and was allowed to take part in the whole process. We had to check our bags at a security station but if you had a reason for keeping a certain bag they seemed to listen. All the interviewers were quite polite. We did have to wait a long time before we got our decision. Granted we were one of the last people there but we had been there from 7am to almost 3pm. We were starving. They do have a vending machine that only takes dirhams, so bring dirhams!

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

US Embassy of Abu Dhabi:

This consulate does not respond to email inquiries AT ALL.

My husband went for his CR-1 interview on December 11th. They told him "he passed" the interview, but that we needed to get a Joint Sponsor. Additionally, they reiterated three times that ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING will take 1 month. HOWEVER, the Department of State contradicted this time frame and said the Consulate OFficers are not giving accurate information on real processing times. It is now 1 1/2 months and our case is still in AP.
I have since found out that other Iranians going through Abu Dhabi have been told the same disinformation and are also waiting longer than expected.



Do not beleive the Consulate Officer if they say administrative processing takes less than 1 or 2 months.

Nearly an hour i was called again, then it was a different lady, basically 3rd lady, she asked almost the same questions but in a different manner. In general my interview at the American Embassy Abu dhabi UAE went well. the three ladies who was interviewed me was nice and polite.

My fiancée had her interview at Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. on the 15th of July. She took all the papers which were examined by a clerk at the first counter. He said that all the papers and documents are complete and in order.

Then she was questioned by a consul officer. According to my fiancée he made fun of her, was condescending, that I did not spend enough money on the engagement ring, that our relationship is not compelling, we did not have proper engagement ceremony, etc.etc….
Her two children who were included in I129F were not interviewed.

My fiancée informed at it is not customary to have such a ceremony in our community, and she urged him, (even though she was upset) to read the email; look at the telephone log etc.

After looking at the emails, he informed her that he was satisfied with the relationship, and gave her a BLUEP PAPER marked 221g.

He also told her that it may take some time to get her the visa; she needs to... read complete review
