Embassy Interview Process
The embassy interview stage is exciting because it’s the last step of the USRN process before relocating to the States. There is nothing to be worried about in this interview process, the questions will all relate to the information you previously provided to the embassy, and the tips below will help you prepare. Our nurses can expect to relocate to the U.S. approximately 3-6 months after they complete their embassy interview.
To get ready for the interview, gather all of the proper documents. The NVC has a checklist for reference, and the Consulate is also available to assist you. Make sure you bring your Interstaff Job offer, Visa screen certificate, original documents, and a set of your photocopies.
- Be Punctual and Professional
It is essential to be at the U.S Embassy at least 30 minutes to 1 hour before your appointment. Wear formal or semi-formal attire with closed-toe shoes.
- No Electronic gadgets, Foods, and Drinks
Do not bring electronic gadgets, cellphones, or other prohibited goods into the embassy. Food and drinks are not allowed inside the embassy.

Only the applicants are allowed to enter the waiting room or to the interview.
What is expected of you during the interview?
- Provide truthful answers
