Hello, Everyone.

My future husband is going for the K-1 Fiance Visa Interview in London, UK.

Should he dress in a suit and tie?

Go casual?

We would appreciate your advice.

Thanks.

Amy & Jon

Others here have posted that they used "spiffy casual" type of attire, such as kaki's
and shirt. Clean, nice, but not formal. No pink hair recommended, probably oughta
take out that skull & crossbones earring, and if there is a way to cover that pink
floyd tatoo, it's probably a good idea also.

legal information. i am not a lawyer.

The consular officer is not interested in what you where just the information you
provide. They are only concerned with the legitamcy of your relationship and the
proper paperwork.

I wore jeans and a t-shirt as did most of the people interviewing the day I
did.

Hi,

T-shirt and jeans here also!!

There were 5 other ladies there the same day as me, one in shorts and a t-shirt, one who was very nicely dressed in a dress and everything in between.

This is all good, common sense advice. I'm just wondering if anyone has passed the
interview with pink hair, tatoos and tongue piercings. I mean, if you've got your
papers in order, the examiner should provide the stamp, piercings and tatoos or not.

I have to say that when we were in Charlotte on April 30, people were casually
and neatly dressed and there was no outlandish attire. This is one time where
dull is good.

Elaine I am not a lawyer. I don't even dream of being one. This information is based
on my own narrow experiences.

Definitely go naked. I find it helps everyone relax.

Other than that, khaki pants - your future husband will get a kick out of it if you
say (you have to say this, not write it) khaki pants to him. Try it.

Andy.

P.S. I've been here almost four years but I still giggle when I talk about my
khaki pants

I went with a nice pair of pants, shirt and tie. Then of course a girl that was at
the Consulate when I was there was wearing faded blue jeans, a plain t-shirt and
sandals, she passed.

It's just going to come down to the person interviewing you. Whether they decide
to judge you by your attire or not. Probably a good idea to dress somewhere in
the middle.
