German Embassy actual Spouse visa interview questions

Getting started

When I applied for my FRV or Spouse visa to Germany, as expected, there was a short interview for it.

How and why you should prepare for the Spouse visa interview questions

Honestly speaking, there should be no perfect formula for the preparation. Although, I want to advise you that all your answers must be accurate and honest.


Because remember all the requirements you submitted must be matched with everything that you will say during the interview. Don’t be nervous. It’s easy.

Officer: Did you already know your husband before you applied for the visa?


Why I didn’t put all my answers to the questions?

For personal reasons, I opted not to include all of my answers to the officer. I believe all your answers and mine are different from each.

Please note

Please note that these are just based on my personal experience. Although all the Visa interview questions I wrote above were all the questions asked to me, expect that yours could be different.

The visa interview questions may vary from one applicant to the other.

Friendly tip

Answer only what is asked. Don’t add any unnecessary comments or remarks. It will just create confusion.

I hope this will help you in your future Spouse visa interview at the German Embassy. Remember that preparation is the key and don’t forget to complete all your requirements!
