An appointment with immigration may sound like a stressful undertaking, but with a little preparation, you can walk confidently into your interview. At the Law Office of Carmen DiAmore-Siah, Attorney DiAmore-Siah is a Honolulu, Hawaii-based immigration lawyer who serves clients in every state in the United States. She understands the proper steps you need to take to prepare for your visa immigration interview with the State Department.
Here, Attorney DiAmore-Siah shares three tips for mastering that interview.
- Know The Details: The National Visa Center will send you a notice that lists the time, date, and location of your appointment. Know these details well in advance, and show up early on the appointed day and time. Reserve extra time for any security checkpoints you may need to clear before you can enter the building.
- Get A Medical Exam: Anyone applying for an immigration visa must complete a medical examination with a recognized healthcare provider. This includes everyone listed on your visa application. Once completed, the healthcare provider will give you a sealed envelope which you then take to your immigration interview—do not open this envelope. Your immigration lawyer at The Law Office of Carmen DiAmore-Siah will help you find an authorized doctor if you do not already have one.
- Have All Documentation Ready: You will need original documents or certified copies of those documents, in addition to one photocopy of each. Birth certificates, marriage certificates, color photos, and military records are just some of the paperwork you'll need to have with you. A full list can be found on the National Visa Center’s website.
