My answer to What are standard E-2 visa interview questions?
Answer by Raad Ahmed:
Generally, in an immigration interview, they will ask you questions about why you are qualified for the visa. An E2 is no different, so you should be ready to explain why you meet the requirements for an E2 visa. So, you should start by knowing all of the application materials that you submitted. It is a good idea to prepare a copy of these materials and bring them with you for reference.
Standard questions that will be asked will stem from the application materials. Basically, the examiner will review your file and application materials beforehand and then the interview is a chance for the examiner to ask any questions that he or she may have about your application materials.
You’ll probably be questioned about your business plan and growth strategies. It is likely that they will ask you about your financial projections because that is the purpose behind an E2 visa. So, again, it is a good idea to know these materials. But remember that these things should all be prepared in advance so you shouldn’t stress about it at the time of the interview. You should be able to explain your business plan at this point.
Another common question area relates to anything on the application that needs to be explained. If you have a copy of your application materials, you can look over them to see if there is anything that may need to be explained to an outsider. If so, it is likely that you will be asked about it so you should be prepared for that.
In general, this interview is just your chance to talk with the examiner about your application and if your application is proper, then you should have nothing to worry about. I would suggest that you hire an attorney to help you through this process, from preparing the materials for the application to preparing for the interview. An experienced immigration attorney will be able to navigate the process and make sure that you have all that you need to qualify.
