What country?

I would actually be concerned of the other way around. Meaning what if your government finds out you have applied for a US immigrant visa, would that be a problem? As far as your visa is concerned, I don't really see what difference it makes for a US EMbassy if you are a government oficial or not. All that matters to them is wether you said the truth in your DS 260 application and a clean Police certificate.

Good luck!

if becoming a government official and must needs join the Chinese Communist Party,

then, yes, this will be a barrier at the interview.

otherwise, for other countries, USUALLY is ok.

Why you not answer question, for 'which' country?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

o o... my mistake...........

I am from Bangladesh.... so u think it will not affect my visa interview? i am ready to quit the job before interview if required, but if i don't, will i need to submit extra documents or go through extra procedures like AP......etc, or will it take extra time and effort? i am already having a tough time, i don't want to prolong it....

OP,

please do not quit the job before interview. A job is a job is a job. If its a good job, hold onto it till you get visa in hand. Nothing is certain. You might get stuck in administrative processing for a while during which you might regret not keeping the job, or something similar.

Also, if your govt does not put you to do tasks which put you in a no entry list on USCIS, then I don't think you have anything to worry about. Again, do not just assume that you will get the visa, wait till you get it to quit the job.

Not at all! You do not need to redo your DS260. I understand that at the time you submitted your DS-260 you did not hold this government position therefore what ever work information you entered was valid at that time. So please keep your DS-260 as is and do not try to submit a new one otherwise it may further delay the whole process. Given the slow movement expected in F2A for the months to come I personnaly wouldn't mess with my application if it was me.
