Going abroad?hmm, so you have to prepare yourself. In this video lesson, I'm going to show you
7 very common questions immigration officers ask at the airport and how to answer them
confidently. Hey friends, teacher Prix here to help you talk to anyone anywhere anytime
in English thank you so much for joining me on another video. I hope you enjoy this lesson
and make sure to subscribe so you don't miss any of my weekly videos. But here we go, the
first thing you need to know about these questions is wherever you go, ok every airport you go
around the world these are very common questions, so you probably need them everywhere you go,
ok so the nice thing about this video is, this video doesn't only prepare you to go
through immigration in The United States but in England, in Canada, in Australia, ok the
second thing you need to know is short answers you don't need to talk about all your dreams
and plans and how excited you are and how happy you are. No! Give short answers, answer
the question correctly and quickly, ok. And third keep calm! If you get too tense the
immigration officer can get a little suspicious ok if you get too nervous too tense they can
ask you more questions not the other way around, alright? Nice! Now let's get down to business.
So here we go, question number 1: May I see your passport? This is pretty obvious, they
wanna see your document, your passport. You can just give the passport to the immigration
officer or you can say "here it is" or "here you are" these are the most common ways to
answer this question. Number 2 how long do you intend to stay?there are, there may be
some different ways to ask this question but the idea is the same "how long will you be
staying in the United States?" or how long will you be staying here?ok, how long do you
intend to stay?Remember, short answers. For a week, for a month, for two weeks, a week,
a month, as long as you give the information they are asking you don't need to give long
answers about that. Nice, number 3 What's the purpose of your visit? hmm another very
common question. In this question, they want to know why you are traveling. There are 2
main reasons why people travel, well, actually 3 - tourism, business, study, ok? So, you
have to say what you're doing in the United States or in Canada or Australia, you have
to explain what you're doing there.ok, so I'm here for a business conference, that's
something you can say.I'm here on a business trip. I'm here to go to an Exchange school
or I'm here to study English for a month or I'm here on vacation, I'm going to Disney!
Ok, so these are some possible ways to answer this question. And remember, you don't need
to give a long explanation ok? Just say the main reason why you're staying in that country.
Nice! are you enjoying this video? yes?I hope so! So far 3 questions, I have 4 more questions
to show you but before that how about sharing this video with someone who is about to travel
or maybe with your friends on facebook, I'm pretty sure you can help someone with this
video. But here we go, question number 4 what do you do? what is your occupation?Basically
here, I want to know about your job so all you can say is "I'm a..." and the occupation.
I'm a teacher, I am a doctor, I'm an engineer, I'm a student. If you say you are not working
they will probably ask you more questions ok, so just try to say what you do and if
they ask you where you work, you will have to say. They asked me this question the last
time I went there (USA) they asked me what I did and where I worked, ok? Number 5 are
you traveling alone? if the answer is yes, awesome! so you say "yes, I'm alone" if the
answer is no my friends, all you have to say is who you are traveling with so then you
say "no, I'm not. I'm traveling with" my brother, I'm traveling with my parents, I'm traveling
with my boyfriend, with my girlfriend, with my husband, with my wife, you need to say
who you're traveling with but not the name, I'm traveling with Jack. Who is Jack?ok, say
the connection, the relationship you have with the person, I'm traveling with my sister
not with "patricia", I'm traveling with my sister. I'm traveling with my husband, I'm
traveling with my boyfriend, ok? Number 6 do you have any family here? hmm, they basically
want to know if you have a family member living in the United States or in England or wherever
you're going. This is a tricky question, if the answer is no, awesome!so, no, I don't!
if the answer is yes, you will say Yes, I do. But you'll probably have to say who lives
in that country. Yes I do, I have a cousin who lives here, Yes I do. I have a sister
who lives here or I have an uncle who lives here. Be prepared to answer more questions
about this family member. They will probably ask their name, their phone number, their
email, their address, their occupation, what they are doing in America or in whatever country
they are, so if the answer is be prepared to answer more questions about this family
member. Number 7 have you ever been here before? Basically they want to know if it is your
first time in the USA or in another country or if you have been to that place before.
So if the answer is no, No, It is my first time here! If the answer is yes, then you
can say when more less when so Yes, in 2010 or Yes, about two weeks ago or yes, last year
so say more less when you went to that place. ok? They can ask you what you were doing and
you can say well, I was on vacation, ok or I was here on business, or I was studying
English so these are some possibilities to explain the purpose of your previous visit
if they ask you remember, you don't need to say this, only if they ask you, ok? And I
know I said 7 but I have one more, bonus question! where will you be staying? ok, this is a common
question too. So it is interesting to say where you're staying, if for example you're
staying at a hotel, you can say the name of the hotel you're staying.I'm staying at the
Pacific Hotel on Times Square or I'm staying at the Pacific Hotel in Manhattan. Sometimes
they can sometimes ask you for the address, but it is not always the case, ok? but this
is a common question they can ask and in many cases they will ask this question. Nice, there
you go now you are ready to go through immigration anywhere ok around the world because with
English you can talk to anyone anywhere anytime, thank you so much friends and I'll see you
next time, bye!
