Telephonic Interviews of Petitioners of Approved Nonimmigrant Petitions

Petitioners are advised that the Department of State Visa Office is conducting random telephonic interviews with petitioners of approved nonimmigrant visa petitions to verify factual information relating to the beneficiaries and the proposed employment. This verification process conducted through the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) may involve research on petitioners, including review of the company website, company contact information, and use of Google earth to confirm existence of a physical office. Telephonic interviews may include questions confirming submission of petition, date of incorporation, physical location of petitioner, number of employees, names of shareholders, location of attorney of record, and other general questions regarding petitioner’s business operations.
