- 1. Tell us about yourself
- 2. What immigration application did you apply for?
3. Was the process difficult for you?
The H-1B1 visa is a pretty straightforward visa, though I personally encountered some problems with my application at the US embassy in Singapore. It can be a pretty intense process if you’re not ready for it, and till today, I have to prepare myself mentally before the interview. Of course, it depends on the interviewing officer—it can be a simple and easy process as well.
4. What advice would you give others seeking the same immigration benefit?
For the H-1B1 visa, just have your paperwork in order, rehearse the interview process with your lawyer, and overprepare, even if you may not need all the documents. It’s better to be ready than not. Also, give yourself enough time to get everything together and schedule your interview; it will give you more peace of mind.
5. How do you think immigrants benefit the United States?
We bring so much diversity to the US—not just on paper, but also in terms of our work ethic and educational training and background. For example, I’m able to combine my rigorous Singapore school training with the more creative and freeform way Americans work, and bring a balanced work ethic to my company.
