Immigration Interview Tips: What You Should Do in USCIS Interviews
When you sit down with a USCIS agent, you SHOULD:
- Bring all of your immigration documents – The USCIS official will likely ask you a series of questions, and you may need show these documents to the official to back up your answers (or simply to refer to clarify your answers). Having these documents on hand to reference can help the process run smoothly, will show that you are serious about this interview and your requested status change and ultimately can help reduce the chances that your immigration matters will be delayed.
- Be ready to answer some personal questions – This is especially true if your requested status change involves a fiancé visa or other family matters. While you may be sensitive to such questions, it’s important that you remember that the more honest you are in providing answers, the more smoothly your interview will go.
- Be prepared to sit down for the interview one-on-one – In some cases, USCIS officials may request to interview you separate from your family members, your fiancé, etc. When this is the case, be ready to comply with these requests, and be honest when you are asked questions regarding your relationships to others and your intentions for the requested status change.
