F1 Visa Interview Experiences

2 Minute F1 Visa Interview at Chennai Consulate

My F1 visa interview at Chennai Consulate was very simple and lasted only for 2 min

I had my visa appointment today at 7.30 (May 27, 2011)

While submitting my documents they told my passport photo was not of good quality so i had to take one more, this only took time for me.

    But, I was under that impression that you need to have provisional certificate, with all the eight semester’s marks for your VISA. Is this correct?
    Also HSB or the person who underwent this interview, please post the list of documents that are required for VISA as it would be helpful for all the readers who are attending the VISA.
    Thanks in advance.
