This is a great forum and I am a frequent follower. Now its my turn to post the recent experience with my parents. They arrived on time and here are the series of questions asked. My dad gave to the point answers and appeared with confidence. He chose Hindi language as my mother could not speak English
VO: How are you
Dad: Good thank you
VO: Where are you going
Dad: Answered
VO: Who are you going to?
Dad: My son
VO: What does he do
Dad: He works as xxx
VO: Which company
Dad: xxx
VO: What visa he is on
Dad: answered correctly the name of visa
VO: What do you do
Dad: I am a retired xx
VO: Ok please wait for the message

This was all of the conversation. My dad said he did not say "Your visa is approved" and just said " Wait for the message". When they came out, and we checked the status was showing "Administrative Processing", we were unsure of what this means. The status was same the 2nd day and later during the end of day it changed to "Issued" . We are now waiting for the passports to arrive

Hello there,

We are three brothers and I am the ledest. My youngest brother works in US and he is married. They live in California. They currently hold H1B and H4 Visas respectively. My 1st younger brother stays with us in Bangalore and he is also married.

Me, my Wife, my Son and my Mom attended the US B1/B2 Visitors Visa interview at Chennai on 25th October at around 9 AM. It was a family Interview and I opted for Telugu because of my Mom and my Wife. I am self sponsering. VO was around 35 years white tall guy. He had a female translator for Telugu. Here is the details of the Interview:

VO: Why are you going to US? (Telugu - Female translated asked me)
ME: To visit a few Tourist places along with my youngest brother who live there (Telugu)

VO: Your brother or your Wife's brother? (Telugu)
ME: My brother
WIFE: His brother (showing me)

Then, I pointed out at each person with me and informed the VO that this is my Wife, Mom, and my Son.

By this time, VO got to know that I can speak fluent english and he started asking questions in English directly to me.

VO: Where does your brother live?
ME: .... city, California

VO: What does your brother do?
ME: Works for ..... company as Software Engineer and he has been posted in US to work at the Company's Client place, which is .... company.

VO: How long are you going to stay?
ME: We three (me, my wife, my son) are going for 10 days and my Mom will stay for 2 months.

VO: What do you do?
ME: (Explained briefly about my Business and what I do)

VO: How long have you been doing this?
ME: Past 5 years

VO: Did you work before this?
ME: Yes, I worked in ..... company as Sr. Web Programmer (and explained briefly what I did there)

VO: Whats your current income?
ME: I am earning an average of ..... per month from past 6 months. I have the bank statement with me. (VO just nodded no and said, its not required)


VO: How many children you have? (Telugu)
MOM: 3 Children

How many Sons and Daughters? (Telugu)
MOM: All are Sons

VO: Where do they stay? (Telugu)
MOM: Both my 1st Son and 2nd Son stay with me and my last son is saying in US.

VO: How long are you going to stay in US? (Telugu)
MOM: 2 Months

VO: Have you ever visited any Countries? (Telugu)


VO: How many years are you married? (Telugu)
WIFE: 8 Years

VO: How many children you have? (Telugu)
WIFE: One Son

VO: How old is he? (Telugu)
WIFE: 5 years

VO: Does he go to school? (Telugu)

VO: Which class? (Telugu)


VO: How many employees you have?
ME: Answered

VO: How much will this trip cost you?
ME: Answered

VO: When are you going?
ME: Answered

VO: Have you applied for US Visa before?
ME: No

All the while during the interview, the VO was typing something on his computer. After around 10 sections from the last question, the Golden Words came - "Your Visas are Approved". Not a single document was asked. We all said "Thank you" and left the place.

While answering a couple of questions, I did pause for few sections in the middle of the sentence cause, I was searching for the correct english word to say.

However, I was confident and I looked at VO eyes and answered all the questions.

Million thanks to immihelp website. I read a lot of experiences that were posted on this website and this helped me to prepare for the interview.

Just a small note. I think my income was one of the major factor which resulted in a positive outcome.

Hope this experience helps someone.

Thank you.
