“The interview and physical, is it hard to pass?”
The short answer is no. We recommend that you print the petition out and that both of you have a copy and go through it page by page. It’s also highly recommended that you know each other, that you have a bona fide legitimate relationship because they usually ask straightforward questions like where your fiancée is from, and what they do for a living. These are straightforward and simple questions and we have a list of sample questions on our website. One thing I’ll add is usually, the interview is pretty short. This is not like an employment interview where you might be there for an hour. It’s 5, 10 minutes, maybe 15 if there’s something unusual about your case. The facts of your case are what they are. Be honest and you’ll probably be fine. When people fail or have trouble, it is usually not the interview or the medical exam that does it. It’s usually something else in the paperwork, in the background check. It’s usually not, I answered a question wrong. Now, has it happened? Yes, definitely. We’ve seen it a time or two where somebody just didn’t seem to know the sponsor well enough, but it’s rare. That’s not usually where you’re going to have problems if you have problems at all, and most people don’t have problems. I just want to repeat, most people are approved. If they get that far, if you make it all the way to the embassy, you’re probably going to be approved. If they were going to deny your case, there is a high likelihood that they would have done so before the interview.
