"Where will you live?" question vs. U.S. address mentioned on DS-260

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


Our consulate interview is going to take place this coming Monday. A thought occurred to me as I was reading some sample questions online. I noticed that many people get asked the question "where will you live?" by the consular officer. Is this linked to the U.S. address we were asked to provide on the DS-260 in any way?

Since putting down a U.S. address was a requirement, I entered the Chicago address of a close friend (I understand this is where our green cards will be delivered). However, we are in fact quite open as to where we can live (depends on where one of us finds the best paying job) and since I am in insurance chances are it may be somewhere in the Northeast (the epicenter of the U.S. insurance industry). If I say "probably Northeast" as my answer, would that be construed by the consular officer as a "contradiction?"

Thanks in advance for your input.

Doesn't matter. You can live where you want. Very few people know exactly where they will live when they fill in the DS!

Our DS had our GC address as NYC and address to live as blank, as you could do that in the days of paper forms. When asked at interview we said CA or CO, no problem.

You can even just answer as you have said - you will move to where the jobs are!
