  • Program of study: Bachelors in civil engineering.

F1 Visa Interview

me: hello good morning officer.
Vo: Good morning

Vo: How did you know about this university?
Me:from my independent research in United states educational foundation as I have been going there for the past few months.

Vo: what will you do with a civil engineering degree?
me:As my country is a developing country so there are lots of construction works to be done here and that means huge scope of civil engineering so i will try to work for areputed construction or a private housing company and build a very strong career in that field.

Vo: What does your father do?
me: He is involved in a family business.

Vo:what kind of business?
me:a manpower company.

Vo: which countries does this company sends people to?
me: answered.

vo:how long has he been involved in the business?
me: since the establishment of the company.

vo;How long has the company been established?

me: since 10 yrs.

Vo:How many employees are there?
me:told.

vo:ok mr s you do qualify for the visa.
me:thankyou sir.

There was something unique about my interview .Actually my twin brother was also applying with me so after I got the visa the officer didn’t ask much to him.
My suggestion is that be confident, try to speak as much truth as possible.

Don’t get nervous if you see others getting rejected.Every case is different and try to speak as much to the point as possible. Be prepared but don’t commit the mistake of memorizing answers.

You will forget all of them.Just try to go by your instincts and be extremely present minded.

    congrats samir for getting the visa.Actually,from the beginning of the day when we met in the USEF,I knew that you both brothers are extremely talent and good.So,I am not surprised that you got the visa but I am much shocked by the news that you tell the visa officer that your brother is also applying today,then he called him and took interview and at last gave visa to him as well.Wow..!But both of you deserve the visa.

  • Ater

    congrats man. Can you share your profile? GRE and TOEFL?

    • samir

      well i am going for undergraduate studies so i did sat.my sat score was 1950 and toefl was 103.

  • samir

    I dont know how it is in india but in nepal scholarships are extremely important and that ultimately decides your ability to pay tuition cost.so a good scholarship is a big plus.i was offered almost a full tuition scholarship and that really helped me.

  • samir

    I dont know how it is in india but in nepal scholarships are extremely important and that ultimately decides your ability to pay tuition cost.so a good scholarship is a big plus.i was offered almost a full tuition scholarship and that really helped me.other than that its upto you to make the vo beleieve that your sources of income are credible.

  • samir

    there are no such things as complete document but what i come to realize is that the vo these days rely more on your familys income source than anyother thing.when i went for the interview there were many people who showed their father having a partnership in business but were rejected because the vo didnt think the sources were credible.so its good if your family owns a business.

  • raksha

  • teju
