10 Top Spousal Visa Interview Questions and perfect tips to answer them.
- Question #1: When did you meet your spouse in person?
Tip: Describe the circumstances and include the approximate date, where were you, time, where were you going.
- Question #2: How long have you known your spouse?
Tip: The longer that you date each other, the better. In the beginning we are in love and we want to rush and get married, but I will say wait, date, do some travelling together, and get to know that person before you get married. In that way you will have lots of evidence and you would not get a two-year condition green card.
Instead, you will get ten years. So the longer you date each other, the better. Date each other for about one to two years before getting married.
- Question #3: How much time have you and your spouse spend together?
Tip: It is very important to spend quality time with your spouse. If you are the petitioner, try to at least go to your spouse and try to stay about one to two months, at least twice a year, spend time with each other, go out, do lots of adventures and take lots of pictures.
If you are the dependent, try to at least get a visa so you could travel to the U.S to see your spouse, and do not overstay your visa. Go back in a good time frame.
- Question #4: What do you like about your spouse?
Tip: Is your spouse loving or caring? If you want to say that your spouse is loving or caring, please give details of what does he or she do that is loving or caring. View lots of details but keep it short and sweet.
- Question #5: What are your spouse’s hobbies and interest? What are your hobbies and interest?
Tip: Get to know what he or she likes and asks lots of questions. For example, you could say, “My spouse loves to stay feet and play the guitar.” And for yourself, you can say, “I love to Cook and dance”, or you can say, “Myself and my spouse, we are very outgoing and we love taking road trips together.”
So this is a great way to answer that question.
- Question #6: Have you met your spouse’s family?
Tip: If yes, describe the circumstances and who you met. Also, does your spouse have any siblings? If yes, state their name and age.
- Question #7: What did your parents and your spouse’s parents think about your marriage? Did they approve it? What type of wedding did you have?
Tip: The more traditional the wedding, the better. If you’re having a smaller wedding, you want to include close family members such as parents, siblings, and extended families.
Do not have a small wedding with a whole bunch of friends. It’s not going to look good to the consular officer. So the more traditional wedding you have, the better, and if you want to go smaller, make sure to include close family members.
- Question #8: Have you ever been to the U.S?
Tip: If yes, what type of visa did you use to travel to the U.S? How long did you stay and when did you return from the U.S? If it has been many years since you have gotten a visa, make sure that you go ahead and do some research. Find out what visa you had. Look at your old travel documents.
If your visa was denied, make sure that you state why it was denied. State why did the consular officer denied your visa. So this is a very important question.
- Question #9: At what address do you plan to reside in the U.S?
Tip: Although this question is very simple, you need to know your spouse’s address, memorize it, ask him or her what is the address and memorize it. If your spouse is currently in the military, make sure that you have arrangements of where you will be staying once you come to the U.S.
If you have any in-laws or if you have any family members in the U.S, know the address. Please do not say that you find in a state by a friend and this is a friend address. No, do not include any friends. This is not going to fly with the consular officer. It’s going to look like a red flag and it’s going to show that you are not committed to your relationship.
- Question #10: Criminal history.
Tip: This question is very important. Have your spouse told you about their prior criminal convictions? What did him or she was convicted of and what were the circumstances? You need to be very honest when you answer this question.
If you are convicted of a crime and your police report is cleared. You still need to let the consular officer know of your convictions. If the U.S embassy wants to do an investigation, let them do that. If everything comes up clean that’s great. If you don’t have anything to hide, you should be fine. Tell the truth and be honest.
If you have any new evidence, make sure that you go over it with your spouse and include that in your interview. Those evidence could include travel documents, pictures, financial and gift receipts, emails, call logs and so on. So make sure that you practice every day so to be more prepared.
