Consular Interviews and Appeals

Consulate Interviews- When an aspiring immigrant applies for a visa outside the United States, he is required to have an interview at the U.S. Consulate in the home country. The interview takes place after the visa petition is approved. The consular official will determine whether a visa should be issued to the individual. It is important to be well prepared for the consular interview in order to be approved.

How The Law Office of Wiliani-Malek can help you with Consulate Interviews: We can help you get your consular interview scheduled, and we will prepare you for the interview. If the consulate is taking too long to decide your case or to set your appointment, we can help expedite the process. We have vast experience working with consulates all over the world including Ankara, Istanbul, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ciudad Juarez, Spain, Greece, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Monoco, Norway, Portugal, London, Paris, Ecuador, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Chile, Columbia, Belize, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Cambodia, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Japan and many more.

Consulate Appeals- Sometimes the consular official denies an immigrant visa after the consular interview. It is important to act fast in these situations. In some cases, it is possible to change the consular official’s mind or convince a supervisor to overturn the decision. If an individual does not act fast, the file might be transferred back to the United States for an official denial. Once that happens, the time for processing the case will lengthen a great deal.


How the Law Office of Wiliani-Malek can help you with Consulate Appeals: We have successfully worked with consular officials and supervisors to resolve potential denials and get the case granted in a timely fashion. We have utilized the appeals process to have denials overturned as well. If your case receives a denial or a notice of intent to deny, contact our office at once to discuss your options. We might be able to reverse the denial and help your loved one immigrate to the United States.
