I'm happy for all those who got their visa, and praying for those who are still waiting. Please, let me join you too, as I also applied for a 309 visa on September in Cairo. I'm from Morocco. My CO is IS just like KitKaat, Faith555, glyph and NN and will be having my interview inn shaa Allah on Thursday via phone in Arabic as he said. I saw glyph's husband interview was in Arabic too, I'm just wondering which Arabic, Egyptian or Moroccan (they're quite different), I don't speak Egyptian dialect well at all, and I'm afraid he won't understand a word from my Moroccan Arabic like most of middle east Arabs , they all find it hard to follow up. I hope Faith555 would read my this question as she is also from Morocco. I don't know how she dealt with it. What do you advise me ? should I try anyways or maybe ask him if we can have it in english ? very confused.

Hi tiffan

My partner is from Morocco and we were worried about the same thing before our interview. We emailed the co specifically asking if the interview would need to be in English due to the difference in dialects with Morocco and Egypt. She emailed back a pretty generic reply saying that she speaks Arabic and English so the interview could be in either. Lol so that didn't really answer our question. On the day my partner opted to have his interview in English and if he didn't understand something he asked to have it explained in Arabic. Likewise if he couldn't express himself in English he would answer her in Darija which she understood fine.
Basically they just used a mix of the three to get to the point of the answers/ questions

I really hope my CO understands Darija (Moroccan dialect) too. I also thought to reply to his email and clarify that point with him, I didn't do that for two reasons 1- I don't expect he would answer or he will answer very late 2- I was afraid he may take it wrong ... .

I sent him the original moroccan penal certificate through DHL. Once I got the Proof Of Delivery, I forwarded it to him along with the documents he asked me to prepare before the interview date (record of communication between me and my husband ...) and asked him to confirm that he received the envelop from DHL. Tomorrow is the interview and still didn't get any reply from him. I was scared until I saw in this forum that this is something more or less "normal" which doesn't mean for sure that there is something wrong. Let's see how it goes

I did the interview. not in the scheduled time, he called to postpone it one hour. He asked so many questions. and asked me to send him the original marriage certificate via post along with my husband photo and wedding photos and anything that can support my case he didn't ask this before I could send it with the original penal certificate. I don't know feeling bad about how the interview went, I answered all the questions but our case is very confusing, so many details as we first met in 2007. and looks like he didn't see all the pictures and documents I provided in the online app and which sent him via email too.

It is usual for the interview to be long most applicants seem to be 1 to 1.5 hrs for the interview.

Try not to worry about him not asking for things ahead of time it seems all in his character. I remember Faith being worried and ended up getting her visa in record time!

Just remember while the visa is processing if you see each other to provide this proof to the case officer (I would email and attach online). If you don't see each other every 3 months provide evidence of communication. This way you are showing more evidence along with saying "don't forget about me".

Unfortunately the wait after the interview is the worst

Unfortunately the wait after the interview is the worst
The interview lasted 50 minutes, he asked me how many people attended the wedding ceremony, I said well we didn't count them it should be roughly 30 person. he then said, well in the two pictures you sent I only see 4 persons where are the rest ? I said well those are only two more pictures, the rest of pictures is attached to the app online and I also sent them to you in email in september. that's why I think he didn't see them. in our Moroccan marriages, it's always 4 or 6 in each picture, we can't have more. we don't do it so, it's by turn, people who want to have a pic with the couple they come forward and the person who holds the camera arranges it so that everybody is in the scope. I told him that we've got a video but we couldn't attach it to the online app, if he wants I can send it to him he said no, pictures only ... He asked if he has ever send me a gift or so before or after marriage. luckily we have proof of that, a POST sticker which I saved for memory since 2012. also a Western Union receipt as he sent me some money on 2013 ... we luckily have all those proofs even before marriage. We provided pictures of us before marriage, when we first met here in Casablanca in 2011 but he didn't see them and he asked to send him again. By the way, we married on May 2014, we know each other since 2007 through internet, we personally met on 2011 and we got married on 2014.

I was thinking we have solid proofs for our long relationship (many screenshots of video calls, more than 1000 emails, viber calls history, calls which last over 30 minutes, pictures ...) , we prepared everything well. but don't know he's not happy with that or he didn't have look at it ? is that possible ?

As mentioned by somebody before, he was in deed nice when talking to me, but not punctual though. I really hope it goes the same as for Faith but my heart currently says the opposite . You might be right, waiting after interview is even worst... By the way, the interview was 100% English, he started with Hello, I answered Hello, and he asked me would you like to continue in English or Arabic.
