K-1 VISA, will the consulate contact my employer

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello there once again good people of VisaJourney,

Just one tricky question. My employer.

I'm currently in the final stages of my VISA process, I am Australian, and the Packet 3 application has been received by the Sydney consulate. I'm just preparing the final evidence for the Packet 3!

I just filled out the DS-156 form, and something just came to mind.

Will the US embassy likely contact my employer?

I'm probably in the same boat as many VISA applicants; I'm currently working full-time and I've known for a long time I'm leaving, but I don't want to tell my employer until I'm ready to leave!

I'm not sure if anyone can answer this one, but it would be REALLY nice to have the heads up. :blush:

I completely understand that this may be necessary, but I would prefer that I tell my boss, rather than he find out 'the hard way' that I'm leaving!

Thanks!

GrayL

Its more likely that they would contact the USCs employer because they are the ones that are petitioning you and have to prove ability to sponsor you.

I wouldn't worry about them contacting an employer for you.

Agree with Inky- it is unlikely they will contact your employer. Not impossible, but very unlikely; it generally only happens in red flag cases in high fraud countries, where they try and find out of co-workers, friends and neighbours know about the relationship.

No they don't contact your employer :thumbs:

:blink: The HCMC consulate called my wifes employer asking questions about me since we met when I was lecturing at the University there and the University was her employer... As Penguin said this is not common and usually only happens when a case is undergoing AP... the odds of it happening before the initial interview is so small that you should not worry..

To make a blanket statement saying they don't is not totally correct as under some circumstances(after the interview) it could happen...

I was speaking from the Australian consulate in my home country.

Perhaps they meant that they don't contact the employer in a country like Australia, which is low-fraud and where the OP is from.
