How to Prepare for Your Consular Interview

 Preparing for Your Interview

The key to a smooth interview is preparation. If you haven’t looked at the forms we have sent to the government in a while now is a good time to look at them.  Please let us know if there are any changes or corrections that need to be made.

What to Review

In order to prepare for the oral part of the interview, your most important homework task is to review your paperwork. Look at the questions and answers on every form that you’ve submitted or that has been submitted for you, including the ones filled out by your U.S. citizen fiancé or spouse. Though they seem to contain only boring, dry bits of information, this information is loaded with meaning to a consular official. The dates of your visits to different places, the financial figures, and your immigration history can all add up to a revealing picture in the official’s eyes.
After you’ve reviewed your written work, spend some time with your fiancé reviewing the facts and circumstances surrounding your relationship, such as where you met, how your relationship developed, how you’ve corresponded or visited and when, and why you decided to get married.
If you’re applying for a fiancé visa, be ready to explain your plans for your wedding and subsequent life together. If you’re already married, recall what occurred at your wedding and how you settled into your marriage. The officer will ask you about these details in order to test whether you are truly establishing a life together, not just committing a fraud in order to obtain a green card.

What to Wear

The interviewing officer’s decision rests almost entirely on whether he or she believes that you’re telling the truth. You’ll come across as more sincere if you’re dressed neatly, professionally, and even conservatively. Avoid T-shirts or jewelry with slogans or symbols that might make the officer wonder about your lifestyle or morals. We suggest that you dress as if you were going to visit your grandmother or church. Think about what you’ll wear to your interview earlier than the night before, so that you’re not up late with your ironing board.
Sample Interview Questions

These are sample questions to help you prepare for your interview, whether it’s a consular, adjustment of status, or marriage fraud interview. Remember, there is no guarantee that the interviewer will ask you all or any of these questions (though many of them are drawn from actual interviews). But these should give you and your spouse an idea of the types of questions that may be asked.
