In this post, we’ll teach you some expressions that will be useful at the immigration counter.
Every time you travel to another country, you need to pass through immigration. The immigration officer will check your passport. Sometimes, he will also ask you questions about your trip.
Here are some useful expressions to remember when you’re at the immigration counter.
1. “I am traveling for leisure.” Use this to tell the officer that you are on vacation.
2. “I am traveling for work.” If you are on a business trip, this is what you say to the officer.
3. “I am staying at _____.” Use this phrase to tell the officer where you will stay during your trip. For example, you can say, “I’m staying at the Hyatt Hotel.”
4. “I’m staying with family.” This is what to say to the officer when you’re not staying at a hotel because you will be at a family member’s home.
5. “Their address is _____.” Sometimes, the immigration officer will ask where your family lives. You can use this phrase to give him the address. For example, “Their address is 111 River Falls Drive, Los Angeles, California.”
6. “I will be here for _____ days.” You can use this phrase to tell the officer how long you will be staying in the country. For example, you can say, “I will be here for 15 days.”
7. “I have a connecting flight.” Sometimes, you just need to be in a country to get on another flight to your final destination. This is what you say to the immigration officer.
