Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

I had my interview on the 21st of September at 8:30 am.
I arrived around 30 minutes earlier. I was given a number (5) at entry. Once i got through all the checkpoints, i was lead to a room where i was a given a paper with instructions on how to organize all the documents in a certain order. Then i sat and waited there for about 45 minutes before my number came up. I was asked to remove my mask for identification, then had my biometrics taken. I was then asked for my civil documents and i was asked a few questions like what’s my husband’s name and where does he work/live. He then asked me about my tattoos and what they mean. Then I went back to my seat and waited roughly 10 minutes before i was asked into the interview room. The person who interviewed me was a lovely lady. She asked me:
If my husband has siblings + their names
How and where my husband and I met
Where do we plan on living
Why did we decide to move now
If and Where I currently work
Then she said congratulations you’re approved!
The interview took 5 minutes.
From start to finish everybody at the consulate was very helpful, nice and mindful of how nervous some of us might have been.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My fiance arrived about half an hour before his interview. He went through the first security checkpoint where they check you to make sure you're not bring anything in, then secondary security where they ask to see your passport and appointment letter. Then security sent him to the counter where he was asked basic questions like

What's your email address and phone number
Have you ever been married
Has she ever been married
What's her job

Then they gave him a slip with all the required documents to be put in a certain order and was told to go to take a seat to wait for the interview. He waited there about 1.5-2 hours when he was called up to meet with the officer.

He was asked just a few questions:

How did you meet?
Have either of you been married before?
What are the dates for her first and second trip?
What's her job?

He looked only at our pictures and said Welcome to America. You're apprVisa. We will keep your passport to put your Visa in it. Please walk over to the counter so you can register to pick it up when its ready.

And that's it! The officer who interviewed him was the same one that interviewed him the last time for his tourist Visa (that was denied) and both times he was pleasant and super nice with a friendly demeanor. The only bad thing was that they had rescheduled his appointment but as long as we are approved it doesnt even matter anymore

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My fiancé's appointment was set for 10am. He went in at 8:30, they said to come back at 9:30am but they let him in anyway right away.

He had to show his passport at the first counter, then DS-160 confirmation at the other counter. They asked for his interview appointment email confirmation and a photocopy of his passport and said this was required. This was not shown in the required documents in the packet so make sure you bring them!!

He was given a checklist of required documents so he can order them properly. His appointment came last so he went in for his interview at 11:30am. It lasted exactly 10 minutes. The lady consular was very nice. He had to first give his pledge and got his fingerprints taken. He was asked several questions, but they were easy for the most part. He said there was another immigration desk clerk who asked him more detailed questions (e.g. where my dad works, what he does etc...) Questions he was asked by the consular officer:
How did you meet your fiancé?
When did you first meet her?
When did you do the engagement?
When was the last time you saw her?
When was she born? When were you born?
What does your fiancé's father do? Where does he live?
Where was your fiancé born?
What do you do for a living?
Did you do Kateb Kitab (Islamic Marriage)? (we didn't and plan to do so after his arrival in the US).
When will you get married?

She asked for pictures but just saw 2 of them.
She then said everything is good so congratulations, you are approved! She told him that he will get a text once his passport is ready for pickup.

Such a relief!!! :D
