Helping someone with their application for a National Interest Waiver EB-2. Everything has been approved; the only thing left to do is the final interview that DHS requires now. Anyone ever done one? What happens? From my understanding it's just pretty pro forma questions and you show them documents, but since this is my first (and presumably my last) such interview I wanted to go in with a little more information.

1. Bring all the paper work (filed forms + supporting documents) involved with getting the interview (employer offer letter, diplomas, passport, resume, etc.)
2. They'll review and ask your guy questions about the employer, his role, and the duties involves.
3. They'll ask questions about what's on the USCIS forms (employment history, biographical, etc.).
4. They'll ask if your guy has a criminal history. (If yes, be ready to explain it away and document it.)
5. Remember that you're not saying much as the attorney other than to ask them to rephrase the question.
6. I-693 Medical Examination completed within one year of the interview and sealed (unopened!).
7. Or, they'll simply review the forms, eye ball your guy, ask him if everything's legit, and then approve it once he says "yes".

You honestly never know with USCIS.

Your guy will be fine. If everything is legit and in order than it's the easiest fee you'll earn.

You just need to review his file and be ready to talk away any of the officer's uneasiness at the end of the interview (assuming he has any) and be johnny-on-the-spot with documents.
