Understandably, immigrant visa applicants are often nervous and unsure of what to expect during the consular officer interview portion of this process. Knowing more about the process beforehand can help alleviate some of your stress and uncertainty.
During the interview, you will be asked questions by a consular officer. If you brought along any accompanying family member beneficiaries, they may also be questioned at this time. The purpose of the interview is for the consular officer to determine whether or not you are eligible to receive your immigrant visa. You may be asked questions about your family, marriage, background, and criminal history, if any. If you have an attorney, they may be able to help you prepare with some practice questions.
After the interview, you will learn whether you have been approved or denied for your immigrant visa.
