Visa Interview Experience:

I reached the consulate by 11:25, and waited for 5 minutes. Once you are inside the consulate, your belongings are to be placed into a plastic tray and they will be scanned and physically checked. You are will not be physically frisked usually. On completion, you will be led to the waiting area after which your fingerprints will be scanned once again. After another round of waiting, you will be allotted windows for your actual visa interview. The officer who interviewed me was a tall guy in his 30's in a suit.
