Consulate / USCIS Member Review #30909

Ethiopia Review on March 29, 2022:



Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Arrived at 7am after being instructed to arrive at 7:30am for 8am interview. Were able to stand in line as the first ones.

My husband was let in at 7:18, I (naturally) had to wait outside, so I went for a walk. When I returned later, the people on duty were very kind and said it wasn't a problem for me to sit in the area and wait for him to come out.

Husband said the interviewer was very friendly and easy to talk to; she made him comfortable. He was asked if he wanted an interpreter and declined.
Questions he was asked:
-How and when did you meet your wife?
-When did you propose?
-Where was your honeymoon?
-Has she/you been married before?
-Have you met her parents?
-Are her parents divorced? (I thought this was an interesting one. They're not.)
She asked if he brought any photos, which he provided. She made general small talk, commenting on the wedding, etc.
She asked questions about where certain photos were taken (the answers I had written on the back) or who was in them. She asked him questions like, "have you ever been to Hawassa?" One of the photos was taken there, so I suppose this was another way of checking his answers.

The whole interview time took probably 15 minutes.
