Thank you for your interest in the Foreign Service Consular Adjudicator limited non-career appointment (LNA) opportunity. Your interest in this opportunity and your fluency in Mandarin have taken you to this next step.
While your role will be similar to that of a Foreign Service Consular Officer, it's important for you to understand this opportunity is for an initial appointment of 18 months - with the possibility of periodic extensions, depending on your satisfactory performance and the needs of the Foreign Service.
This role is critical to America's national security; you will serve on the front lines of the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, conducting one-on-one interviews and reviewing supporting documentation to determine if a foreign national meets the requirements for entry into the United States. This requires sound judgment and the ability to maintain your composure under stressful circumstances.
You will be required to submit an online application, that will be reviewed to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications, as well as supporting documentation that includes:
- supplementary questionnaire
- narrative biography
- college transcripts
- If available, a government-issued language score for Mandarin.
Your complete application package will move into a review panel where assessors will determine whether or not you will be invited to an oral assessment.
