Possible EB-3 Visa Questions During the Interview

Some of the potential questions that you might get at the consulate. I just want to mention that, obviously, we don't know exactly what the officer is going to be asking.

These are just some potential questions that we've seen that the officers do typically ask. It's  a good idea to know what these are, so you can be prepared:


Who is your employer? Because obviously, this is an EB-3 green card employment based.

How did you learn about your employer?

How did you apply?

Where's your employer's address?

What is your hourly rate?

Where will you be working?

Which area you assigned?

How many hours per week will you be working?

When will you travel to the US? 

Who is your contact person in the US?

Is your employer providing you relocation?

And how long have you been working as a nurse?

This should be consistent with the DS260.

Carl, any other questions that you've seen the consulate offices ask, or any comments on that list?

Yeah, I think the list is very good.  It did trigger a memory that I found a lot. A lot of my wife's nieces. We've actually emigrated over either from the Philippines, or they've gone to Canada and we've emigrated them from Canada. But I remember one specific niece, because she lived with us for a while and her husband actually works for me. I gave him a job. He's very good. But there was some big recruitment companies, certainly not you, Tanya, you would never do anything like this. But I couldn't believe they had done this.

When they have jobs and hospitals across the US that they make contracts with and they told her that she would be working in the suburb of Los Angeles. When she actually got here, they said, Oh, that jobs disappeared. It's already been full filled and you have to go up to Idaho, which is over thousand miles away from Los Angeles.

And she goes, What do you mean, Idaho? I mean, my family's here and you told me I had a job here. Through that company, she had another immigration attorney and I thought this was strictly against the law for them. She's already told them the Embassy in Manila, that she's going to be working in Los Angeles and they're giving her a job a thousand miles away.

So I said, Who's the lawyer? A guy that I knew for years, and I called them up and I said, Hey, you and I both know that's against the law for that company to do that. And I'm gonna give you 24 hours, I want something in writing. They told her was that, like $40,000 that they said they had spent on the whole case, and that in her contract, she was going to have to reimburse them if she didn't go to Idaho and I said, No, you can't do that. You told her you had a job in LA, she told the embassy that I'll give you 24 hours, or we're going to turn that information over to immigration, and your your client is not gonna be able to bring any more nurses to the US.

And about three hours later, that guy called me and he wrote me an email and they said, Okay, forget the $40,000. She's fine. I didn't know that companies thought they could get away with it. I guess if she hadn't had an uncle, who was an immigration lawyer, she might move to Idaho. So, you know, people sometimes think they can skirt the requirements of the immigration law. And I'm not talking about the nurse, I'm talking about the employer or the recruitment agency. And, you know, I've worked with you know, Tanya and I, we've worked together for years, and I know, you've never done anything like that once in a while. There's somebody out there that does that and you should be very careful. Like which recruitment agency you sign up with. Because if they're telling you things that don't sound right, guess what, it probably is not right.

Yeah. Wow. That is a shocking horror story and unfortunately, it does sometimes happen and you know, as you say, got to check out the company, the employer and make sure that everything is is legitimate. And because at the end of the day at the consular interview, I mean, people get nervous call, but really what they're trying to do is just to make sure that this is a real job that you are a real nurse, and that everything is above board.

Exactly. I mean, it's not it's not as complicated as it seems.

Okay. Well, that's a very good and story for people to be aware of.
