Hello, I see you have an interview coming up next month, can you please confirm if you are UAE resident and if you expedited your case? My wife is also waiting for an interview at Abu Dhabi Embassy, her case was completed with NVC on October 5th, 2020.

Congrats on your approval. My husband's interview is on March 8th. If you don't mind what questions were you asked?

Hello, they asked only a few questions and only originals of my docs (police certificate, medical report, marriage certificate and certificate of birth, 1 photo). When did you meet? Where is your husband now? When you are going to the US? Where do you and your husband work? Where do you want to stay in the USA? Why you decided to get married in the country X? Overall, it was 5 mins interview. Some people were asked a lot of questions, even for wedding pictures. It is better to be prepare all the papers.

Hello, Congrats on your approval. My husband's interview coming up on March 8th a bit nervous.  Do you have to present a negative PCR test when entering Abu Dhabi?  Thanks for any information that you can share.

Hi, yes we had to present the test via app AlHosn on our mobile phones at the border, please check the latest requirements. There are changes almost every week. We went to Menalabs for a test at 7am and spent 1 hour there. After 12 hours the test results were ready and automatically were shown on this app. We arrived to Abu Dhabi a day before the interview and stayed in the hotel next to the embassy. It is the best solution, less risky. No bags are allowed to the embassy (they do not have a storage for bags) Good luck with the interview!
