Just wanted to post my experience. My mom had an interview in chennai (English) on sept 21 and her visa was rejected. And what pissed us off was they asked her only one question how many children do u have and she answered truthfully ......Only one daughter and she is in US. That's it, the officer didn't even look at her documents nor did he let her explain her situation, that's it visa was rejected.
Let me explain ur situation here. My husband sponsored my mom (he is on H1B). My mom is a government employee & she is earning good. She is a widow. She had taken with her all the documents, her employment letter , salary statement, NOC which showed that she had been granted 3 mths leave and that she wld be joining office on so & so date very clearly. She had also taken a Affidavit prepared by our chartered account.........showing her house value and rest of all the assets which she owns in india. And plus she is also getting dad's pension, so financially too she was in a good position. The problem here was the consulate didn't even give her a chance to explain herself nor show the doucments to him. Just one question and based on that they said no . And my mom also told me,the officer was kind of rude.
So guys now tell me what do we do in this situation.............is there somewhere we can complain to the embassy, it was ridiculous. Its true i can apply again , but what guarantee this won't happen the next time too.
Can some one please give us some advice or suggestion. We really don't know what else can we do,for the next interview. Since we had carried all the documnets from both of our side this time.........and they didn't even bother to look at it or hear what my mom had to say.
Thank u guys in advance.
