Embassy Review : Hi All:
My wife has CR1 visa interview inMumbai two days back and went fine and was approved. Here is her exp and list of questions asked.

Qs asked:
1. Who is sponsaring you ?
2. What is name of your husband?
3. What is your age and your hubby's age?
4. How did you meet ?
5. How many times you met before marriage?
6. How many members in your hubby's family?
7. Where did you go for Honeymoon?
8. Show me some pictures of you guys other then wedding pics..(Because wee already submitted few wedding pics before so officer was intrested to see non-wedding pics!!!)

Overall goog exp. Went in at 7:30 Am and got our by 11:45....asked officer if she can collect visa same day from VFS or not? officer said chances are less for today but sure tomorrow but you can check today if you want. We tried to collect visa same day but no luck...so went in VFS office next day and collected visa.(you need to collect between 5pm to 6pm from vFS office...or else they will courier it)..

Overall, if your paperwork is good, mumbai doenot give you hard time...
good luck to all....
Rating : Very Good
