How to Bring your Fiancee from Cambodia to the USA
Interview at US Embassy, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Travel + Marriage in USA
You only have ONE chance to make a First Impression.
Most Consulate Visa interviews last a grueling 15 to 30 minutes
most of MY Fiance Visa Petition clients
pass the interview in ONLY 5 minutes
This is because we provide the information we want the consular officer to see, ‘up front’ as part of the petition submitted originally to USCIS. The consular officer will typically review the package prior to the interview. When he reads the extensive and persuasive evidence that we have logically laid out for him, he should be convinced of the ‘bona fides’ of the relationship before the interview even starts.
This makes asking any remaining questions more a formality than a fact finding, interrogation, and leaves very little for the consular officer to say besides ‘Welcome to America’.
It certainly requires extra work and effort, to produce a 100 to 150 page petition, versus a few dozen pages that most un-motivated preparers are willing to submit, but the benefit is PRICELESS as it results in of taking the pressure off of the fiancee to :”PERFORM” at the interview, thus improves chance of SUCCESS.
How To Bring your Cambodian Fiancee to the USA?
Your Cambodian Fiancee needs permission from the US government to allow her to enter the USA. This is called a K1 Fiancee visa.
First we work together to assemble a thick packet of forms, evidences and civil documents. This is required to demonstrate that you are eligible to apply, and that your true agenda is a genuine life together,not immigration fraud.
My signature philosophy is that a petition should be “front loaded” with high quality evidence of a bona fide relationship. My “front loaded” petitions prepare the way so that your Fiancee will have an Easier interview.
The petition package is mailed to the United States Customs and Immigration Service.
USCIS takes about 4 to 5 months to review and approve.
When finished, USCIS hands the case over to the US State Department’s National Visa Center.
Fiance visa applications are held only briefly at NVC, just long enough for NVC to assign a Phnom Penh case number and forward your file via diplomatic pouch to Cambodia.
Once her petition arrives in Cambodia, the consulate will contact your fiancee advising when they have scheduled her interview.
Two weeks before her interview date she undergoes a medical exam at an approved Medical clinic in Phnom Penh
Finally she attends the visa interview at the consulate in Phnom Penh, to demonstrate she is of good moral character and the engagement is Bona fide.
A week later her visa is ready, and then she can join you in the USA.
I make the process sound simple. But its not. It is easy to make rookie mistakes that can derail the entire process.
If you want it done right. Guaranteed. I can help.
I petitioned successfully for MY wife, (AND my Fiancee) too.
This isn’t just a business for me.
I personally work with you one-on-one throughout the entire process until you succeed.
Let me do ALL the work for you.
I guide my clients through the whole process, starting with strategy to help you ANTICIPATE what the consulate you are dealing with wants, helping you to plan trips, and collect evidences, from a personalized, detailed “kitchen sink” document and photo check list, to preparing an AWESOME petition that because it is complete, and thorough, and well organized, and tells your story in the most believable way, paves the way for your Fiancee to have a sucessful AND pleasant interview. Not only do I prepare the intitial petition, but I ALSO stay with you all the way through the time we wait for USCIS to approve, providing guidance on police certificates, vaccinations and interview questions, then in the final run-up to the interview, show you how to schedule the earliest appointment and lastly I upload to your Personal Homepage, completed forms for your Fiance(e) to sign to take to the interview at the US embassy in Phnom Penh, detailed instructions on obtaining medical and chest x-ray at International Organization for Migration or Int l SOS (Cambodia) Pte, Ltd, how to pay the visa fees, obtaining Police Certificates from the Minstry of Justice, details on exactly what needs to be done, what you and your Fiance(e) should do to prepare for the interview, a list of 120 most likely interview questions for you to practice, a completed affidavit of support for your signature.
