I am going to spend the next several months overhauling at least the Interview portion of the FAQs. Originally that was the first FAQ I wrote since I felt it was the greatest concern to all, and it ultimately does reveals to some extent what should be done earlier in the process.

Here is a collection of Interviews over the last year where the members explained their interview experience. I'll expand this to include some blue or white experiences, although I included two which turned to Pink in the end.

I will likely do some stats since there seems to me to be an increase over the last two years in denials for specific reasons (ie: quick filing, one trips, no common language). This should help in seeing any trends.

I can't promise to do more than that but if someone wants to comment on something they would like to see done, you can mention it.

This is very useful links. How come I did not notice them from day one and do more homework to prepare our case better. I think I was deceived by the many stories on 001 of easy visa passes, that I assumed that as long as you have more than abundant financial support and you are in real relationship, passing would be huzzle free. I should have known better. I thought my wife had a small chance of getting a blue note asking her to supplement something to clarify a few of their doubts. Never in my wildest dream would I thought that she got a straight white note of denial, and in less than 10 minutes of questioning.

We just received our Visa in Sept. I wrote my impressions of the process here:


I'm certain that I'm no expert but maybe some feedback about the questions will be helpful.
