ME: To see friend and tourism

VO: Who is your friend in US?
ME: His name is XXX and he is working in XXX company at XXX place in US.

Feeling excited and waiting for passports now.


1. Before we left home, we prayed whole night that GOD please help everyone who will be there to get visa.

2. We were really well prepared. only memorized whatever written in DS-160.

3. Keep normal but nice dressed, speak loudly VO can hear, smile must not disappear from face even VO try to make you worried, Be transparent and True answer.

4. Before entering again requested GOD. "We are nothing but only you who can do right things happen, so its upto you. If this travel is good for us, please help us to get VISA and help everyone here to get it. If it is not good to travel there, we request to please give us courage to face refusal.

THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE DONE FOR OUR VISA. wish you all the best and once again thanks to immihelp.com............really a helping hand

Thanks to immihelp, I was able to apply my parents visa without any agent and just with the help of immihelp and the experiences of people shared here.

My parents went to Visa interview in chennai today and they were greeted by VO (American who spoke tamil very fluently). Following were the questions asked.

All below conversation was in tamil

VO: Good morning
Parents: GM (Both mom and dad)

VO: Purpose of visit
Father: Tourism and meet my son
Same question to Mom

VO: How long u intend to stay
F: 5 months

VO: What are you doing now.
F: Retired

VO: What you did before
F: <Answered appropriately>

Same to questions to mom

VO: Congrats your visa is approved (And said namaste and greeted my parents)
Parents: Thank you.

Was less than 1 min for them. I think the confidence in answer and being truthful is important in the interview

All the best for the other.

My brother in law and sister reside in US and my parents wanted to visit them,
Both my parents are employed. My sister is carrying. But she is staying with her in laws there who are there to take care of her. Also, they will be hiring day care/ nannies to take care of the baby after delivery. But we were worried about how to handle this situation with the VO. We had prepared for questions commonly asked. And held 2 principles -
1. To be honest in all answers
2. To not provide unnecessary information, unless it conflicted with the first point.

We had ticked self under Sponsor column. We had carried these documents :

Common :
1. Chartered Accountant letter showing assets and deposits in bank.
2. Invitation letter.
3. Family photos.
4. My study certificate from college
5. Appointment letter.
6. VISA fee receipt

DAD and MOM each:
1. EMployer NOC certificate
2. Leave letter.
3. Salary slips - 3 months
4. Tax receipts - 3 months.
5. Passport and ID cards
6. DS 160 confirmation page.
7. tickets.

BIometrics took 15 mins the day before Visa Interview. Interview was scheduled in Oct 2015 at Chennai Consulate which went like this :

1. (To my dad) Are you working for ..... ?
A. Yes

2. (To my mom) Are you working for ....?
A. Yes

3. What is the purpose of visit?
A. (dad)To tour US and pay a visit to my daughter's family.

4. Which places do you want to visit?
A. (dad) Washington, Newyork city, Philadelphia, Atlanta city, Niagara falls (VO smiles and says "Yes, I wanted to hear that".

5. Have you bought the tickets?
A. We are taking care of travel expenses. Staying and other is taken care by my son in law (VO : Yes , tickets is the main cost. All other expenses are minor right.)

6. How long do you want to stay ?
A. Dad for 15 days and mom for 3 months. ( VO : (to my mom) Do you get so much leave ? . my mom said yes)

VO : Your VISA is approved. Enjoy your vacation.

None of the documents were asked.

Passport was collected 2 days later at a collection centre.

Immihelp was a lot of help indeed ! Thank you.
All the best to all applicants
