Planning for PassportUSA Interview: What You Should Know

Every day at PassportUSA, we're working with hundreds of people like yourself who dream of working and living in the United States.

There are several options at your disposal to have your interview. A landline phone is most preferable; however, you can definitely use Skype, or a new service like Viber that's becoming more popular. Note that if you do use Skype or Viber, you do not have to use video chat. Many candidates often think they need time to prepare for their PPUSA interview by getting dressed up in formal attire, but the reality is, you could have this conversation in sweatpants!Viber is a newer service. On a desktop computer, Viber allows you to send free messages and make free calls to other Viber users, on any device and network, in any country. It's just another free service that allows you to communicate with us.So whether it's phone, Skype, or Viber, you can have your interview with PPUSA very easily.Have your documentation ready.
