The success of your visa application depends on the results of your interview at the US Embassy. To pass the interview, you need to prepare for it as carefully as possible. Even if you are married to a US citizen, this does not give you the right to enter the country without the relevant documents. First, your spouse has to open an American visa for you by contacting the USCIS office.
For example, an IR1 visa is an immigration permit for the entry that can be issued to the spouse of an American citizen if their marriage lasts more than two years. Due to this visa, you can live in the US as a permanent resident. You can freely leave the country and return at any time, also you will have the opportunity to work and study. The most unpleasant thing is the processing time – from 6 to 12 months, during which it prohibited to apply for a different type of visa.
Let’s think about how not to act during the interview and on the border
From the beginning, it’s better not to lie and say the same information as you write in your application. By submitting documents at the US Embassy, you provide information about yourself, about your flight and travel plans, about where you work and in general, how your life goes.
Please note, you shouldn’t late, behave rudely to the consular officer, talk loudly with other people in the queue, violate discipline. Do not bring electronic books, wires, headphones, tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices with you to the interview – leave these things in advance in the storage room at the station, or give it to friends who are waiting for you outside. A huge mistake will be if you tell the officer that you are going to stay in America or going to the US find a husband/wife, get permanent residency, or to make money.
Would be excellent if you remember this information and, even better, if you recorded it for yourself. For what? Because this is not the only point where you can be asked the same questions, and it is extremely important that the information in your answers are the same as in the questionnaire.
It is worth remembering that the presence of a visa to the US does not guarantee an unlimited entry into the country. You will have a short interview at the US border, right at the window with the officer. And you can be asked the same questions as in the embassy, they can ask other information in general, but the main task of the customs officer — to determine you are telling the truth or not.
