Customs & Immigration 7 QUESTIONS |English At The Airport!


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!
