    United States Embassy Interview Questions

    The United States embassy interview is the most crucial stage of the green card process. During the interview, the consular officer will question your foreign spouse in detail; this is to determine the legitimacy of your marriage. If the consular officer concludes that you and your foreign spouse have a legitimate marriage, then the immigrant visa will be approved, given that all other paperwork is completed correctly.

    The officer’s determination is based largely upon your foreign spouse’s responses to questions. Review the sample questions below. These questions are intended as a basic guide only. Each consular officer will ask different questions as the circumstances dictate.
