This was my yesterday's interview experience at Nairobi consolate section, Kenya. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Arrived at 5.20am. At 6.00am the embassy main gate was opened. We went 1st security check and only 2nl and PP was required at that point. Proceeded to the 2nd security check point. This point 2nd/PP was requested and instructed to leave all the metallic objects and phones. Proceeded to the hole after the checks and we were given a token number after giving the receptionist our 2nl. We were told to wait outside as we wait our number to be called. After 20mins our number was called at window 7.we met a kenyan lady who asked for the fillowing;
Principle applicant (me):-
1.birth cert and copy
2.marriage cert and copy
3.police clearance cert without a copy
4. KCSE and copy

1st Dependants(my wife):-
1.birth cert and copy
2.Police clearance cert

2nd Dependant(my daughter):-
1.birth cert and copy

After the lady went through our docs and got satisfied, she sent me to pay the visa fee for 3 of us which was $330 per person. After returning the payment receipts to her, she told us to wait outside and wait our number to be called again.
After about 30mins we were called to counter 9 where we found a tall white lady who requested to take our fingure prints. Then she told us to go back and sit outside to wait for our number to be called again.
In 1hr time our number was called again to counter 10. Found a black American lady who was now the CO to conduct the interview. Then it started:-
CO: Good morning
Me&wife: morning
CO: Both of you raise your right hand and swear.... brrr

You don't prove eligibility on the DS-260 form. You simply fill and answer all the questions asked as applicable to you. Your eligibility will be determined at the time of your interview.

In the spirit of keeping up with tradition, i wish to share my interview experience. Nairobi, Kenya. @ about 5:20am i had arrived near the embassy. Excitement beat the weather.
@6.20am the gate was opened and we went through the security checks. Then i went to the consular section where a lady at a reception issued me with a ticket number and i was told to wait outside. When my turn came , my ticket number was called out and i went back into the consular section now to counter 8. Was asked if i have ever traveled to another country, if i am married, if i have any kids and i answered. The CO then asked for my passport, passport photos, KCSE cert and copy, birth cert & copy, Certificate of good conduct. (fyi, as i had read in other posts on this forum, i had already visited KNEC to submit a confidencial copy of my KCSE results to the embassy. I had even called KNEC to confirm if they had sent the confidential copy to the embassy. )
Then the CO asked me to pay the 330 usd and bring back the receipt. I did that and was told to wait till i was called back. After about 20 minutes, i was called to counter 9. A smiling white lady was there asked my name and date of birth. Then took my finger prints. Was then asked to wait till i was called. By my estimate, i waited for about 1 hour before i was called to counter 10. The CO, asked me to lift my right hand and swear to tell the truth... i did that.
CO: when did you finish school? What did you scrore ( i respond)
CO mentions "mmmh very high score" ( i node in agreement... by this time am abit relaxed and respond clearly.)
CO:are you married? do you have any kids? Sure?( I respond)
CO: where are you going to stay in the us?
(I respond) CO:"Thats my hometown."

CO:Who are you going to be staying with? Who is that to you(i respond)
CO: what are going to do in the US? (I respond)
Im so excited when i see i green sheet paper being handed over to me "congratulations, your visa is approved. You need to pay 165 usd green card fee. If you havent registered with dhl here are instructions on how to register", the consular says.
By this time im so elated, i feel on top of the world i leave the embassy half walking half running until i reach the gate and cant wait to break the news to family. Thanks to you all for your contribution. God bless you.
