Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts Now, lets talk about the “K1 Fiance Visa Interview and what questions are asked” While helping VisaCoach clients achieve their dreams of spending lives together in the USA, by getting approved for their Fiance Visa, after the interview is over, I always ask the happy couple to tell me about their experience at the consulate And I always ask what questions were asked This has allowed me to compile a detailed and accurate list of sample questions that are actually asked I use these to prepare VisaCoach couples for their interviews If you are the foreign born fiancee of an American citizen, the final step before your visa is granted, before you can start your new life in America is an interview at the US consulate There the officer asks questions about you and your American fiance sponsor You must convince him, that you have an honest and genuine relationship Only then, will he approve your visa The official is tasked to look for fraud This is the last hurdle before the visa is issued and the last chance for US immigration to catch any irregularities that were not spotted before He plans to determine whether in “his opinion”, you are of good moral character, followed the IMBRA rules, and if the relationship is genuine He is seeking to trip you up to catch “sham marriages” by couples who fraudulently marry solely for the purpose of obtaining entry to the USA He also wants to determine that you and your fiance followed the laws of the USA, specifically the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA), that legislates what the “acceptable” ways for you to have met your fiance During the interview it is ESSENTIAL you are calm and poised That you don’t stumble over your answers, or take too long to answer, or give too many “maybe” or “i don’t know” responses There should not be any question the consular officer may ask that surprises or finds you unprepared to answer The following are questions that might be asked at YOUR interview American Fiance’s Background Who is your Fiance?
