Consulate / USCIS Member Review #31860

Tirana, Albania Review on March 7, 2023:



Review Topic: K1 Visa

Consulate called a few days before the interview and requested my fiance to bring a notarized and translated name change form. We submitted this during the initial I129F, but we only submitted an updated and not translated form after receiving packet 3. The Tirana embassy website said we didn't need to get any civil documents translated into English that were officially issued by Albanian authorities. All this to say we were really grateful they gave us a heads up to bring in this form prior to the interview, avoiding a 221g.

The interview was very easy. She brought in proof of interview payment, updated relationship proof, receipts of judical records from the post, copy of NOA2, the email from the consulate (packet 4), the instructions page for the interview, a copy of the DS160 confirmation, and the requested name change form.

Consular asked how did we meet, how many times did we meet, when was the last time we saw each other, where did the petitioner work, what did the petitioner do for work, and questions about the beneficiaries time in other countries for more than 6 months (why where you there, what did you do).
