Visa Interview Experience:

VO was a male in his late 30s, while I was waiting for my turn, he (with a smiling face) asked me to come forward.

VO: Good morning (smiling)
ME:
Very good morning sir.

VO: Please give me your passport, I-20 and Sevis receipt
ME:
Passed everything.

VO: So NC State, Why NC State?
ME:
Answered (Keeping in mind all the factors..courses, faculty, reputation of the university, etc..I choose NCSU)
(VO was looking into his system and typing something all the time I was answering)

VO: Great, so what was your undergraduate in?
ME:
I did my Undergraduate in Information Technology.

VO: Okay! Who will be sponsoring you?
ME:
My father is sponsoring me and I have taken a loan as well.

VO: What does he do?
ME:
He retired from a nationalised bank...(he wasn’t looking at me so I added about my fathers savings and annual income and since he is retired I told about my mother also who is working in a nationalised bank and told her annual income as well)

VO: (handing me the I-20, Sevis receipt and info leaflet) Congratulation, your visa has been approved. You will get a text message within next few days.
ME:
(grinning face with smiling eyes) Thank you so much sir. Have a good day!


I was out by 10:50. The waiting process was quite exhausting and stressful but don’t let it get to you. I was curious enough to listen to the other interviews but I was calm and confident enough so the rejections didn’t bother much. Be calm, confident and say the truth!
