How do I prepare for a K-1 visa interview?

On Behalf of | Aug 5, 2022 | fiancé visas

Applying for a fiancé visa in the United States is a long process. One of the most important components of the visa process is the associated interview.

Preparing correctly for this interview is key to receiving a fiance visa. According to the US State Department, to prepare for the interview you will need to have a medical examination and ensure that you have all of the proper paperwork at hand.

Medical examination

You must schedule your medical examination in the country where your interview will take place. Additionally, the physician must have approval from the US embassy. This approved physician is the “Panel Physician.” The US government will not accept examinations from non-approved physicians.

If you have children that will join you, they must also have a medical examination. You must complete these examinations before you attend the visa interview. After the examination, the physician will either give you the results in a closed envelope or send them directly to the US embassy.

Paperwork requirements

All visa applicants must bring an original (or a certified copy) of all the documents that they submitted prior to the National Visa Center. You will also need to bring photographs. If you fail to bring all of the correct paperwork to the interview, it is likely that the US consular officer will deny or delay your visa application.

Attending your visa interview is one of the key parts of the K-1 visa process. In the event that you have to miss your interview, you must contact the US embassy or consulate and reschedule it. Proper preparation for the visa interview can help ensure that the US government grants you the K-1 visa as quickly as possible.
