Instructions for Declaration for Interpreted USCIS Interview  
Form G-1256  
Internal Use  
Department of Homeland Security  
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services  
What Is The Purpose Form G-1256?  
Form G-1256 documents that the interviewee has provided an interpreter for his or her interview with U.S. Citizenship and  
Immigration Services (USCIS) and that the interviewee is satisfied with the interpreter's ability to provide verbatim consecutive  
interpretation from English to a language that the interviewee speaks and understands, and from the same language to English. Form  
G-1256 notifies the interviewee that an interpreter may learn confidential information shared between him or her and the interviewing  
officer. Form G-1256 also documents that the interpreter understands the requirements for his or her role as an interpreter. Form  
G-1256 reminds all parties that the interpreter must accurately, literally, and fully interpret for both the interviewee and the USCIS  
interviewer, and that USCIS has discretion to deny permission for the interpreter to participate for the entire interview or certain  
portions of the interview.  
Who Must Complete Form G-1256?  
If you intend to provide an interpreter to assist in your communication with USCIS because you are appearing for a scheduled  
domestic interview and are eligible to bring an interpreter to your interview with USCIS, please review this form and bring it with you  
to the interview.  
When Should I Complete Form G-1256?  
Before the beginning of the interview, the interpreter must interpret the contents of Form G-1256 to the interviewee. Form G-1256  
may be obtained online before the interview or from the USCIS Officer at the time of the interview.  
At the beginning of the interview, the USCIS officer will confirm that the interviewee fully understands the contents of the document.  
The officer will complete the form and will ask the interviewee and interpreter to sign Form G-1256 in the officer's presence. The  
officer will place the completed Form G-1256 in the interviewee's file.  
General Instructions  
The interpreter must be fluent in English and in a language understood by the interviewee; competent to interpret in accordance with  
guidance provided by the USCIS officer at the interview; and impartial and unbiased throughout the interview. The interviewing  
USCIS officer will make the determination as to whether the proposed interpreter meets these core qualifications and may decline to  
permit the individual to interpret if at any time the officer, in his or her discretion, determines that the interpreter is not meeting these  
criteria. The interpreter also must be at least 18 years of age and cannot be a witness in the interviewee's case. If the interviewee  
demonstrates good cause for a discretionary exception, USCIS may allow individuals 14 through 17 years of age and persons who are  
witnesses in the case to be interpreters. Attorneys and accredited representatives cannot serve simultaneously as interpreters for their  
clients during the interview.  
If USCIS declines to permit your proposed interpreter to interpret for you at the interview, you will be offered an opportunity to  
proceed with the interview with another acceptable interpreter, reschedule the interview in order for you to obtain an acceptable  
interpreter, or to proceed voluntarily with the interview without an interpreter.
