  1. Hello! We submitted our paperwork to NVC on 4/18 and we just received approval from NVC yesterday - YAY!!! I am wondering when we will hear about interview date in Casablanca, Morocco? Does it take a few weeks for us to find out the date of interview? Will NVC notify us by email? If anyone knows how far out they are scheduling too, that will also be helpful. TIA!
  2. Is anyone else waiting on an interview? I keep checking the status on CAEC. From what I can see on people's timelines it will say when it has "left" NVC, is that correct? I am really trying to calm my nerves here lol. I haven't sent my husband his binder yet, I am stalling a little in hopes I can hand deliver. I am seeing and heard from a few of you that it takes about 3 weeks after DQ. We were approved 6/28. Please let me know if I am missing anything! Ty guys!!
  3. Good morning! I am a little confused on what to provide for my husbands interview in Casblanca (not yet scheduled, just trying to put things together now)! Can someone clarify what this means? If you are married: Your original marriage certificate, sworn English translation, and a photocopy. If you were previously married: Your original divorce or spouse’s death certificate, sworn English translation, and a photocopy. If you are older than 16 years of age: The original police certificate from your country of current residence and countries of previous residence. If these three items are all true, you must bring a more recent police certificate to the interview: You are older than 16 years; You obtained a police certificate and submitted it to NVC more than one year ago; and You still live in the country that issued the police certificate. I find the wording very confusing. I am the petitioner, I know my husband has to provide his police and court record with translations and copies, but I am not sure what this means for me. Is this something I provide? Any help would be appreciated!

  5. Hello, I was wondering if Direct Consular Filing is available in Morocco? I am a US citizen, newly wedded with my Moroccan husband residing in Casablanca, currently undergoing the process of obtaining carte sejour. I intend to live in Morocco with my husband until a green card is issued. How do I go about the process for filing a DCF? How do I go about filing petitions outside of the US? Thank you for your time, Salima
  6. Hello, I need help understanding the process of changing consulate locations for my fiancé's interview. I have only heard that they received the petition and it will likely be a few more months before it is accepted or denied. I filed an i-29f for a k1 visa in July 2021. My fiancé lives in Turkey as a student, and originally is from Morocco. I have been reading reviews and it seems like the Moroccan embassy denies a lot more than the Turkish one and has a lot more problems. Also, it would be more convenient since she is living in Turkey currently. Thanks so much for the help!
  7. My sister lives in Morocco married to a moroccan USA citizen-since 2017- she had interview 2020 ended up with refusing visa - her husband hired a lawyer who filed new application, she had interview on October 2021, she submitted everything they asked for- till now March 27 , the Casablanca Consulat still having her passport and all documents without any answer. please help
  8. My husband (in Morocco) and I (in the states) submitted all docs to NVC yesterday. In the beginning of the application process on the CEAC (Consular Electronic Application Center) stated "If your case is processing electronically, please scan and email your documents to NVCElectronic@state.gov". This confused me as we submitted the documents on the website. While researching the information, I found "only email documents if instructed. Submitting documents by email when not instructed to will delay the processing of your case." So now I am not sure what to do. I don't want to email if it is redundant and will delay our case. I am second-guessing this now. Should we email even if we submitted online? I can't find a single piece of information on this anywhere. Did anyone else do this? Help or guidance would be appreciated!! Ty!!
  9. First trip we spent lots of time near Marrakech. This was our 4-wheeling moment. We look like we are from the 70s! No complaints here though 😊
  10. Hello everyone! My husband’s visa was approved!!!! 🥳 Alhamdulilaah!!! ♥️🙌🏼 He had his appointment at 10:00am but got there an hour early. He waited an hour before they interviewed him. His interview was less than 5 minutes and he was interviewed by a really nice gentleman. He was asked: -How did you meet? -How many times did I visit him in Morocco? -Does his family support our marriage? -Who is your co-sponsor? -What’s my job? -Why didn’t I work last year? -What did I study in college? My husband did his interview in English and saw one other man get approved. He did mention that he saw more people being denied than approved 😔 He thinks this is because the people were interviewing in Arabic and seemed very nervous. His biggest tips are to be confident and polite. Be confident in how you answer the questions and that it’s okay to be friendly. Prior to meeting the officer a woman collected the following documents and asked him twice in what language he wanted to interview. -Original Marriage Certificate/ translation -Original Police Record/ translation -Original Court Record/ translation *The court record we submitted to NVC expired on 12/13 and we uploaded a new one on 12/16, however, they did not want the new one. We brought both just in case. All of the documents were returned by the officer. The officer did not ask to see any pictures, messages, etc. He then provided my husband with an approval form and welcome packet. The officer’s final words, “Your application has been approved and your passport will be ready next week, Mubrouk! (Congratulations)”. I will post a more detailed timeline soon, thank you all! 💛
  11. Hello so I'm marrying an American citizen and I saw on the website of USA consulate in Morocco some informations. on marriage and I saw they were listing the names of some specific translators but the problem is that my fiance is coming here to Morocco for just few weeks so to gain time we agreed on him translating the documents in the USA but we don't know if our documents will be rejected if we don't get them translated by the translators listed by the us embassy in Morocco ?! Can we translate them in the USA or not?! Thank you
  12. For a little background, my Moroccan sweetie and I met as language exchange partners through HelloTalk in February 2020, and have spoken nearly daily since then. We are both Muslim, and conventional dating isn't really a thing for us, but we realized that we really had begun to care for each other and began to talk seriously about courting in January of this year. During the three weeks that I was visited last month (my first visit; COVID squashed my plans to visit last year when we were still friends), I met his parents and sisters and stayed with his very traditional Amazigh family for much of the time. At the end of the three weeks he proposed to me so that we could continue to develop our relationship in a halal way, and a way that respected his family customs and our mutual beliefs. To celebrate, his family threw us a little engagement party, and we took a lot of pictures of us, the engagement rings, and the family. It was a lot of fun, and we were both so happy. I wanted to include those photos in our package as we build our case for a bona fide relationship for a K-1 visa (I will be visiting again early next year, and we'll most likely submit after that), but I am a little concerned now because I see that some people have been denied for including photos like this because the consular officer suspects that the marriage has already taken place. Does anyone have any experience with this? Please share any experiences that you have had specifically with the Casablanca consulate, or other MENA consulates. (I appreciate your willingness to give advice from other places, but I think it may not be relevant to my situation.) Thanks in advance for your help 💗
  13. Yes, another beautiful picture of Chefchaouen and of course, Hatim and I 😊
  14. Another beautiful picture of this amazing town.
  15. Beautiful as always! This town is so amazing!
  16. Our first visit to Mediq in December 2020. Eating street corn and loving life! Love being with him more than anything!
  17. One of the most beautiful towns I’ve ever been to. Also the town most likely that I would pass out due to the massive hills that you cannot escape. Except by taxi…one try by foot, I said never again! I’m was so impressed with all the people who were walking up it like it was nothing! Goals!
  18. My fiancé Hatim and I during my visit in July 2021. Amazing time spent together and Mediq is breathtaking.

  20. Hello! Anyone who has traveled to Morocco in the last year or so, do you know where I can get a PCR test in Morocco which is required to re-enter the U.S.? Flying out of Casa. Thanks in advance!
  21. Hello! 😄 My fiance's case has been "ready" for his interview since July 8th. He did his DS-160 and has printed the confirmation page. Moroccan government offices were closed last week due to the Eid holiday, so this will put them back a little schedule wise. It says on CEAC for us to wait for them to contact us to schedule his interview. Does anyone know how long this process should take? There is no backlog anymore to my knowledge of K-1 in Morocco, so just wondering if we should try to call or just give it another week to wait for the email. Morocco schedules the interviews through email, so just want to make sure they didn't miss us in the stack of papers or something. 🧐
  22. Hi all, I've been reading a bunch of posts in the forums since returning to the US, and I'm concerned about our chances for approval, mostly due to us having a traditional engagement ceremony, including an exchanging of rings. Some background: -I'm female American (25) and he's male Moroccan (21), no prior marriages nor children, etc. for either of us. -We met initially in mid-2019 when I visited Morocco, kept nearly daily contact, began romantically seeing each other late 2020, and got engaged during my visit to Morocco last month. -I am not muslim (more agnostic) while he is muslim. We're both fine with this as long as our children are muslim, inshaallah. I'm okay deferring to his preference since he is more religious. -I just visited him and his family for 3 weeks in Morocco, but both of my visits to Morocco are within the 2 year period for filing. -He is proficient in English as that is our main language of communication, and I know some elementary Arabic / Darija. -I also keep in frequent contact with his brothers as they consider me part of their family. I also talk to his parents, but they don't know any English, so our conversations are less frequent. -We do have a shorter engagement period (which is I know is a bit of a yellow/red flag), but we are both people who exercise caution with those we date and don't want to 'waste' our time on a superficial relationship. -He has never traveled to the US / outside of Morocco We have plenty of evidence as far as photos, chat logs, etc. are concerned, but I am now anxious because I have seen so many threads warning against having an engagement party before filing. It was a simple ceremony, lasting less than 30 minutes. We exchanged rings, fed each other a date and milk, kissed each other on the forehead, and held hands in front of his family. After that, we took pictures and had a homemade lunch. We wore traditional Moroccan clothing for the ceremony that his mother ordered in advance of my arrival. They don't match exactly, but it's obvious that we are together. There is the possibility that I could not include the photos in my file, but we exchanged the photos over whatsapp, and I don't want to lie if we get an interview and they ask if we had an engagement party. Plus, if they ask if we had an engagement party, we say yes but didn't include any photos, wouldn't that also be suspicious? I'm trying really hard to get all of our documentation together, but it feels so sad that something used to celebrate our love with his family could cause us denial. Thanks in advance
  23. Hello. Our case was approved April 16th, 2021. My husband was given a white paper and told his visa would be issued within two weeks. Case is still showing “ready” after over two months and we were not asked for any additional documentation. Anyone else in the same boat? My husband is from Morocco and we are hoping to close the distance soon.
  24. Hello friends, does anyone know what’s the next status after “Immigrant visa fee payment received”? It says they will mail the card within 90 days of entry to the US or payment (whichever happens the latest). But I was wondering if we should just wait for the card in the mail or if there’s any status update I can track. Thank you
  25. Hello All, I have few questions and looking for an advice on further steps for obtaining K visa for my fiancé. Our case was sent from NVC to US embassy late March, 2021. On 1st week of April my fiancé received a letter from NVC stating that our package was sent to Consulate in Casablanca. Been waiting since than to hear or to receive a package from embassy. When I talked to NVC I was told to wait to fill up DS 160 Application form until she receives a package with instructions. However, today when i checked CEAC site, its stated " K visas are nonimmigrant visas that assist spouses or future spouses of American citizens in entering to the United States. As with all nonimmigrant visa applicants, a DS-160 must be filled out in order for a consular section to process the case. " . We filled up DS form today. What is the next step? Those of you who had received your K1 visa did you fill up DS 160 form as soon as your case was sent to country Embassy? How long it took to hear from Embassy or to get a package with instructions? Was our delay because we did not fill up DS 160 form right away as soon as we heard that package was sent to Embassy? What should we do now?
