Top 10 Mistakes you can do at Visa Interviews:
Visa interview is most important part of the whole visa process. A successful interview can have greater positive impact in visa grant decision. Following are some of the most common mistakes people make during the interview.
Not Prepared Well for the Interview: Being prepared for interview can better equip you for the interview. A prior research and preparation for commonly asked questions and their appropriate answer will be helpful during the interview.
Not Providing Complete and Truthful Information: It is very important that you provide complete and truthful information. Any incomplete/false information can lead to unnecessary delay. False information can have severe impact on your future ability to apply for US visa. It may also cause you lot of frustration and legal actions against you.
Providing Incomplete Documentation: Must carry all the required documentation with complete and authentic information. Read all the prerequisites and prepare all the documents accordingly. Keeping your documentation well organized can also leave a positive impression on the consulate officer.
Not Carrying Appropriate Fee: US consulate has strict methods of payments. Make sure you know the method and the exact amount of the applicable fee. For example, most US consulates don’t accept cash as the payment method and would prefer separate bank drafts for visa application and visa issuance fee. Refer to an appropriate source for more detailed information.
Providing Unnecessary Extra Information: Do not give away any information voluntarily which is not being asked. In many cases, people trying to be over confident and over smart give out more detailed answers than is required. This may trigger additional related questions which may not work in your favor.
Inconsistent Information: Inconsistency in the information about what you provide in the documentation and what you say during the interview can go against your case.
Arguing with the Consulate Officer: Never ever make any arguments with the consulate officer. If you want some information ask in a polite manner.
Having Poor Communication: Poor communication is the number one reason reason that affect your case in a negative way. If you’re not good in English, you should request for a regional language interpreter.
Having too Much Communication (talking too much): Remember, you are the one being interviewed and not the other way around. So, keep your communication brief and to the point. Speak only when asked for an answer.
Appearing to be Nervous: Being confident can bring positive results. Especially, in case of visa interview where a consulate officer has to rely on limited information provided by you. Their judgment is highly influenced by the way you react to questions, your body language, and the authenticity of you answers.
