Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Interview went smoothly. Appt. time was scheduled for 7:30am. My husband selected English for the interview, so unfortunately we had to wait around 3 hours for them to get through all of the interviews using translators. We had been told this would happen.

I had a ton of proof at i-130 stage, and submitted more at NVC stage, so we knew it would be a fairly easy interview.

Are his parents ok with our age difference? how do they feel about it? (they love her! )
What does he currently do for employment? (currently unemployed)
where did he work for last job? (described position and title)
What high school did he attend? (odd question since he is college graduate)
What is the age difference between you and your spouse? (I am 20 years older than my husband and Caucasian)
How many times has your spouse visited you? (9 visits/5 years)
Do you have photos?

Visa approved

Review Topic: K1 Visa

It was quiet smooth for me with no hassle at all. The only thing I want to highlight for other's is if you are coming in for 7:15 AM slot please make arrangements for your bag and electronics because the locker facility opens only post 7:30 AM.

Arrived at Consulate by 6:30am. Interview was scheduled for 7:30am. Was allowed to enter by 6:50am

At the gate you need to have all the docs. They will tell you all the things you need. Passport and immigrant letter at gate. Once you get in, you have to have *passport, DS-260, interview letter, marriage certificate, birth certificate, PCC along with a copy of each*. Once you are all done, they give you a number (ex. G2) and thats your number. When that comes on screen, you have to go to the counter and they will collect all the docs along with originals and give you some legal rights papers. At that time, they asked me my mother's maiden name?
Have you visited any other country?
Have you applied for a Visa before?

Then he said “Ok wait for interview” and gave the paper with the legal rights of immigrant and green card fees instructions.

After like 20mins I got called up to another counter. Interviewer made me pledge I am telling the truth. Then fingerprints and asked the following questions:

Was it arranged or love?
Where did you go for your honeymoon?
How many time he came to India after marriage?
When? -in September
Where does your spouse/petitioner works? -answered
Role / job description of spouse? -explained (in detail)
Spouse education?
Where did he studied in India or US?
How long has he been in the US?
How did your spouse came to USA?
Do you have any photographs of September trips you had?

Then he gave a paper that said my visa is approved with big bright smile.

Whole process took about 1hr and reached hotel at 8.30am.

One big tip: have all the documents above at easy access with the original and copy together. This saves time.
