Review Topic: K1 Visa

Arrived about 7:15
Waited outside until 8 or so. Weather is perfect in UAE winters.
Lots of people inside, the entire process was three hours including fingerprinting and interview.

The interview was straight forward because my fiance and I met in person in the UAE and have been together since 2012. Didn't get immediate approval because I didn't have the tax forms and according to the guy enough "chat". Had to explained that she lived in the UAE for five years so there weren't chats for that time.

Returned January 6, 2019 with tax papers and more chats from the times we were apart.

Will pick up passport within three days.

Interviewed with a man, pleasant but serious. Good luck everyone.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

My husband stated that the interview went smooth. They ask the following questions:
-Where did we meet?
-Where does his wife work? How long has wife been in UAE?
-Has he ever lived in another country besides the UAE and Nigeria?
-Where will he work?
-Where will we live in USA?

We had every document that was needed and made a copy just in case. They only asked for the following:
-Original Marriage Certificate
-Original Passport and passport photos
-Original Police Certificate from Dubai and Nigeria
-Proof of Domicile
-Medical Report

Overall my husband had a great experience. Being well prepared is the key and making sure you have everything they need just in case they ask for it.

The waiting was longer than the interview itself. The questions were just about our personal information.
