Thanks for this forum and founder
Yesterday 20th July I had visa interview at Chennai consulate, my interview scheduled at 10:30 AM, I reached embassy by 10:10AM.
Step-1: Initial security check has been done for my document and password
Step-2: Security check has been done whether I have mobile phone any other electronic equipment.
(My advice is dont carry any mobile phone any other electronic equipment)
Step-3: Once again security checking my entire document and any sealed envelope cover is with me. I have one unsealed envelop that has given back to me with US - Security seal.
Step 4: I have placed in Queue their entire documents check has been done and he removed unwanted documents (Justification letter, education documents), he is taken only my passport and I129-S, DS-156, DS-157 and petition letter. I have been asked where is photograph has been taken and when? Then my fingers has been scanned both left and right finger. Thumb finger scanned individually.
(They ask me to go to next building where actual interview is taken).
Step-5: They are calling as per the appointment given 9:45, 10:00. 10:15 and 10:30; again one more Q. Now its my turn. Interview by lady officer
Me: Hi good morning with smile
VO: No Answer
Me: Given the documents
VO: How long you have working for Cognizant?
Me: xx Months
VO: What is your Indian salary?
Me: xx CTS / Annum
VO: Who is your client?
VO: What ABC does?
Me: Explaining about my project and client.
VO: What you will do with Client?
Me: Explaining about my work and I added my specialized knowledge about the company propriety tools. Be specific about the tools.
VO: Place your left hand index finger in scanner.
VO: your passport will be courier you with weeks of the time.
My advice is
1. Wear the smile till you come out of the Embassy
2. Be confident while your answering
3. Wear light colored shift and dark colored trousers.
4. Dont try explaining about the project, client, your skill set and your specialized propriety tool until they ask.
5. Answer simple dont use jargon words
What I observed is they are expecting the justified answer about the Specialization knowledge, , when there is sub question based on your answer, Be confident and answer clearly ..Visa is yours.
I wish you all the BEST.
