Consular Processing

Consular processing is when an immigrant applies for a green card or visa through a US Embassy or consulate in their home country. This process can help the immigrant obtain a green card (lawful permanent resident). There are forms and an interview one must go through to obtain LPR status.

How do You Start Consular Processing?

If you’re the immigrant you typically won’t start the process. What will need to happen is a relative or employer within the United States will need to get a visa application started on your behalf. Once that form has been submitted and all the required documents are received and confirmed, you will need to have an interview in person at the consultant. Once the interview with a US consulate official is over, you will be sent home to await the decision. If all goes well you will be notified that your US Visa is ready to be picked up.

Preparing for the Consulate Interview

The key to a successful interview is by being prepared. Here are just a few tips for your interview:

  1. Think of any issues the interviewer could have and have a strong case of why those concerns are not valid
  2. Prepare for a lot of questions you might anticipate, but aren’t sure they will ask. It’s good to have answers ready and not be caught off guard.
  3. Have all documents ready and in a folder that will not harm the documents should the weather be problematic
  4. Memorize the order in which all the documents are, so when the interviewer asks for one you know exactly where to find it
  5. Smile, and try to stay relaxed.
