Immigrant Visa – What Language Will I Be Interviewed In?
“Will my visa interview be in English? What if my English is not so good?”
The US government conducts business in English, of course. But US embassies are staffed with a large number of locals. And to apply for a visa doesn’t require you to know English. Most interviews are held in English by default but upon request you may ask for an interpreter. This will be up to the availability of a staffer who can interpret your language.
English fluency will only become an issue when applying for US citizenship. But not for a visa.
