Sample Interview Questions For K1 Visa

K1 Visa is a non-immigrant Visa that is required by an foreign national to go to the US to marry his/her American fiancé(e). The American fiancé(e) has to apply for the Visa for his/her foreign fiancé(e). After he/she files the petition with the DHS, the NVC will transfer this petition to the US Embassy or Consulate of the country where the foreign fiancé(e) resides. The Embassy/Consulate will invite the foreign fiancé(e) to appear for a Visa interview.

When the applicant goes for the interview, he/she should ensure that he/she carries all the required documents along with him/her. If any of the documents are missing, then the Visa application will be rejected. Through the interview, the consular officer will try to figure out if the relationship between the foreign national and the American citizen is legitimate or not. The American fiancé(e) is never asked to attend a K1 Visa interview.

The K1 Visa interview generally takes around 10 to 30 minutes and the officers may ask 10 to 15 questions. During the interview, applicants should remain calm and answer truthfully. If they do not know the answer to a certain question, they should just say the truth instead of making up a fake answer.
