One Cell Phone Policy

여러분은 가방안에 어떤 물건들을 넣고 다니시나요?  노트북, 핸드폰, 지갑, 차키, 수첩, 손수건, 껌, 물병 등등…

그때그때 필요를 충족시켜주는 많은 물건들을 넣고 다니시는 분들도 계시겠죠?  혹은 단순하게 지갑과 핸드폰만 갖고 계신 분들도 있을테고요.

그런데 여러분이 미국비자 인터뷰에 오실때에는 반드시 내 가방 혹은 주머니안에 무슨 물건이 있는지 점검하시는 것 잊지 마시기 바랍니다.  비자인터뷰에 오실때에는  카메라, 노트북, 핸드폰, 차 열쇠, mp3, 이어폰등 전자기기들을 갖고 오시면 많은 불편함을 겪게 되실 거예요.  전자기기는 휴대전화 한개와 차 열쇠 꾸러미 한개로 제한이 되어있거든요.  그 이유는 신청자들께서 대사관에 좀 더 원활하고 신속하게 출입해서 대사관에서 지체되는 시간을 줄여드리기 위해서죠.  그리고 신청자들이 많아지는 시기에는 대사관에 물건을 보관하는 장소가 아주 부족하답니다. 

여권과 서류 챙기셨나요?  좋아요, 그럼 이제 가방과 주머니 점검 하실 차례네요.  휴대전화와 차 열쇠 꾸러미 한개만요! 혹시 일어날지 모르는 그래서 전자기기를 맡길 곳을 찾아야 하는 불편함 꼭 기억하시고 인터뷰 오시기전 전자기기 확인 꼭! 해주세요.

1cell1keyWhat do you take with you in your bag when you go out? Perhaps your laptop, cell phone, wallet, car keys, notebook, gum, water bottle?

There are even those people who put lots of stuff in their bags so they will have it if they need it. Meanwhile, there are those who keep it simple, with just their wallet and phone.

So, when you come to the U.S. Embassy for your visa interview, it’s very important not to forget what you have in your bag or pockets because you will be checked before entering. If you bring things like your camera, laptop, phone, car keys, mp3 player, earphones or any other such electronic device, you might experience a lot of delays getting in. This is because the only devices you will be allowed to bring with you to the Embassy are one phone and your car keys.

The reason for this is the Embassy wants to do what it can to make the entry and exit for applicants smoother and faster, and to decrease delays. Also, during the high season, when we have a lot of applicants, there is not enough room to store everybody’s devices.

Do you have your passport and documents ready? Good! Make sure to also check your bag and pockets, too! Only your phone and keys! Don’t forget that if you happen to forget and bring more than allowed, you might end up having to look for a place to store them. So, before you come to your interview, don’t forget to check your devices!
