I have trouble with English. Can I bring someone to the interview to interpret for me?
Some applicants are concerned about conducting the visa interview in English and may wish to have an interpreter in Tagalog or another language.
Embassy personnel are available to provide assistance throughout the interview process. Applicants who require interpreters should inform the consular officer at the beginning of their interviews. The Embassy has interpreters on hand who can provide language assistance. There is no need to bring a relative or friend to act as an interpreter.
