Tips on Interview:

  1. Dress appropriately. You can wear business casual attire or even a nice pair of jeans with a collared shirt. Dress comfortably because you will wait for hours at the US Embassy. Also bring a light jacket or sweater because it is cold inside the embassy.

  2. Arrive on time.

  3. Be yourself. The interview will be mostly about you and your petitioner.

  4. Do not bring any type of electronics in the US Embassy. Leave phones in your car or at home. Even flash drives are being confiscated inside when you go through the metal detector.
