Mar 4 US Embassy Interview…

*Note: I finished the whole process inside in less than 30minutes coz they prioritized me for being pregnant. (Naunahan ko pa yung ibang 6:30 hehehe)

I arrived at Usem around 6:30am, and waited there until pwede na papasukin. My interview was scheduled 7:30 (don’t worry kahit maaga kayo, may mga seats naman bayad 30 nga lang hehehe). At grey tent, they will ask your passport, appointment confirmation and ds160. Pagpasok, xray kayo at dala niyong gamit (tips: make sure wala kayong dalang kahit anong electronic accessories and gadgets. if wala kayong kasama sa labas na maghihintay, tiyak tapon ang ending like sa nangyari ng powerbank ko. RIP sa powerbank). Then proceed to windows 1 or 2 for your priority number.

Interview with American lady consul:

*Good morning! -Good morning.

*What is your petitioner’s name?

-F’s Full name.

*Have you been to any other countries?

-No. Never been abroad.

*How did you and your fiance met?

-I met him through an online dating site asiandating.com

 

*How many times did he visited you?

-Once. He was here Sept. 1 2015 until Oct. 27,2015.

*Oh! so he was here for couple of months.

-Yes 😊.

*Have you been married?

-No.

*Was he married before?

-No.

*Does he have kids?

-None.

*Do you have kids?

-None yet but we have one coming (pointing to my bump 😂)

*Oh! So you’re pregnant,congratulations! It’s your baby with the petitioner,right?

-Yes. It will be our first child.

*What is your fiance’s job?

-He just recently lost his job due to the company scam. He was one of the victims and I have proof of report.(consul just nod while starring at the computer)

*So how is he going to support you?

-He’s a hardworking man and never stopped looking for a new job right now. and we have his mom to support us as our co-sponsor.

*I see. Do you have any pictures with you and your fiance together?

-Yes. (handed her our photo album)

*If in case of any domestic violence or your fiance will abuse you,know about your rights. don’t hesitate to call the emergency number 911 and state your situation. That won’t affect your visa.

-Okay. Thanks.

*Seems there’s no problem with your case and I have no more questions to ask. Congratulations, enjoy your day and please proceed to step 5.

At step 5, the pinoy staff just confirmed about my delivery option and informed me that my visa will be delivered within 2 weeks timeframe.

Thanks for reading and hope this would help with your case or process. God bless us all and just always be positive. Don’t overthink as it will just drain your energy.

Mar 16 will be my cfo.

“Keep calm and Visa Approved!” 😂

Mary Ann Fiance visa approved timeline Jan 28,2016

fiance visa approved

Hi everyone.. Just wanna share you my timeline!

From Mary Ann:

1. Reason for RFE – lacking letter of intent to marry coming from the beneficiary (me).

I wasn’t a member here when we send the petition so I have no clue.. My f works early morning ’til night and comes home tired, so he hired a lawyer to process it for us BUT still miss the most basic requirement 😒 Had my hands on our case after that from every step of the way!

If you have the time to do the whole process yourself, by all means please do.. Read and read. And don’t be afraid or shy to ask. A lot of sissies here are ready to answer your queries!

2. USEM Review – Read the signs! Lol 😝 I was instructed to seat on A but IV greeters ask me to go out first.. They lined us up outside but the cue was for seat B. I relied on them & did not listen to my instinct that I was on the wrong cue lol.. Had to go line up again from the start on where should I belong 🙊

Overall, the interview went smooth.. Only basic questions and not a single document was asked from me by the American Consul. Finished at 11am with a huge smile on my face. Walked out the embassy and immediately felt hungry and oh, my feet hurts! 👠😩

3. CFO Cebu Review – the seminar was very informative. The one on one interview had more probing questions compared to the embassy haha 🙊 I guess it’s because they are protecting us and also concern on our whereabouts. Just be honest.. The counselors are trained and know what are the exact questions needed to raise on a case by case basis. Helpful tip: Be prepared! 😉

And of course.. Pray and pray and pray. Pray in every step of the way 😇🙏🙌

If I get denied a fiance visa, what are my options?

221g rfe letter

If I get denied a US fiance visa, what are my options?

Going for a US embassy interview can be stressful.  It can be a really bad day if your visa is not approved, but do not lose hope!  You still have options.

Here are the 2 things you can do to overcome:

Refile. Some fiances only get an request for evidence (RFE).  In this case, refiling is not necessary.  All they have to do is provide the evidence that they government agency asked for.  But in more extreme cases, the visa is denied.  If your first fiance visa application did not get approved, refile your application! Will you get denied if you refile? That is really up to you and your situation.  If you are denied, the US Embassy will sometimes explain why you were denied and you can make sure you fix that issue the next time you refile.  Preparation is the key! For sure you have learned your lesson on what has gone wrong in your first fiance visa process. This time do more research, coordinate with your fiance and have a teamwork! Nothing beats teamwork. WIth the right papers submitted to the USCIS, the right papers submitted to the US embassy interview and a practice for the interview questions, you have a good chance to make it to the USA.

221g rfe letter

 

CR1 spousal visa petiition. If you feel that the option above will not work for you then try cr1 visa or k3 visa. If your case is more complicated (ex: if the applicant has applied for multiple visa before but got denied). You can proceed to getting married and apply for a new visa called CR1 spousal visa (conditional resident visa). This is another type of visa that applicants use to prove to the consular officer that the relationship is real and surpass the doubt of the petition.

Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 19, 2014
Embassy Review : The lady CO was very nice. SHe said my interview went well but they must wait for the medical result. I was told in the releasing window that I have to wait for my visa because my medical result did not arrive yet. It has been 15 days and it is still under administrative processing. I kept checking everyday and it still did not change. Im so sad
