Hi Friends,

Today 17/01/2017 , I had my B2 visa interview at US Embassy Colombo. My appointment time was scheduled at 7.15 am. There were around more than 100 applicants for different category of visas. When I enter the embassy premises after the security checking, I was given a token number. One old american lady came to me and explained about the procedures of finger printing ...etc. After they have taken the finger printing , I was asked to sit in front of the interview booths. There were 8 applicants before me. Then I was called to the room no.6. The officer was a woman aged between 35 - 45.

VO: Good morning.
Me: Good Morning Madam.

My current passport , DS160 confirmation page and my covering letter were taken already at the finger printing counter. So, VO had my passport already.

VO: What is the purpose of your visit ?
Me. I am going for tourism

VO: Have you been to any other countries before?
Ne: Yes madam, I have been to UK several times and KSA, Thailand

VO: Where do you working?
Me:Told

VO: What is your position in the company?
Me: Director

VO: How long you going to stay in United States?
Me: For 5 days and from there I will be leaving to UK to stay there for 7 days.

VO: Ahh.. OK fine.

She was typing something on the computer for about 2 minutes.. Then the Golden words came " Your visa is approved, you can collect it tomorrow at 3.30 PM". I was so happy. She gave me a white paper which states that the visa is approved and instructions about passport collection time....etc.

All I can say is whoever go for visa interviews, be confident, prepare your self, Do not get panic or nervousness, it is your day - try your best...

All the very best to everyone....!!!

In October 2016 I applied for my USA visa and got rejected. VO asked me alot of questions and honestly i wasnt really prepared for the interview as I was too confident about my case because I have travelled to USA multiple times during late 1990s and mid 2000s and we never over stayed there. We used to travel back and forth from Saudi to Pakistan and USA back then and after marriage, I've been to Dubai, Thailand and Philippines.

My husband applied for a US visa to attend a conference in August and he got a 5 year multiple visa. After he received it, then I applied for myself and got rejection.

VO: What will you do in New york? (it was declared on the visa form)
Me: I want to go to New York for Christmas and New year's eve. I will spend time with my sister in NY.

VO: what do you do here?
Me: I am a house wife.

VO: how did your sister got Citizenship?
Me: Married a US citizen

VO: Are you going to meet your husband in the USA?
Me: I wont because he is on a business trip and all his expenses are paid by his company.

than VO asked about his salary and job etc, my earlier days in Saudi, my father's job and accomodation. (It was a 15-20 min interview) and rejected my visa.

Now I am applying again as my husband is going to the USA again to attend another work based conference.

We have decided that after his conference we will spend sometime together in the USA for holidays. Hope my approach is correct this time and they dont reject my visa based on the previous answers. Please reply in comments and let me know if I am on the right track. Also, I have decided I wont be mentioning about my sister.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I just want to share my first time interview experience in American Embassy last December 15, 2016.
It was really a great December 14 birthday gift.
I applied for non immigrant visa with my friend Char & Hyde. We did the first step, we entered to the gate for body checking, then hall way, waited for 5 minutes and my name was called for first fingerprints. Since it was my first time, my hands was shaking when the lady around 55 yo asked me about my purposed in applying to USA. I replied but it seems she is not listening. Few minutes after, she told me to proceed to window 12, me and Char waiting for around 35 minutes due to some applicants were stock up in window 12 for some reasons. 2nd fingerprinting was conducted by a young white beautiful lady,saying GOOD LUCK mam, enjoy your day. Later, security mentioned my name to proceed to window 10, I can feel my heart pumping so fast, deeply I prayed and whisper bismiallah.

2 minutes interview

VO: a young smart man with a brown complexion " good morning"
I replied "good morning sir"

VO: hand me your passport please,
I gave my passport, here sir,

VO: typing, maybe for 5 seconds and stared at me for a moment with his smiling eyes,
I whispered, relax??

VO: started asking me, How long you been working in present job?
I answered loudly 24 years sir in the University, then he was typing for a seconds...

VO: repeatedly asked 22 years in the Hospital? he smiled at me...
I replied no sir, 24 year in the University,

VO: typing again for maybe 10 seconds..and said, oh, okey
While waiting, I realized, it`s supposed to be 23 years in Gregorian calendar and 25 years in Arabic calendar...

VO: I will keep your passport and wait for....
 
I can`t even remember the last word, I just clearly heard the magical word " I`ll keep your passport " and I was looking at him happily but confused, that`s all sir?

VO: He answered, Yes, good luck!
Thank you sir, God bless your heart! I waited, after 5 minutes, my friend Char came with teary eyes & later Hydee came smiling,??ended Happily for MULTI VISA granted, alhamdulillah??
