Q&A – I lied during previous student F1 Visa interview. Not sure if the main reasons for F1 visa denial was because of lying.
Planning to attend the interview for the third time for Fall 2012.
You can read 100’s of previous F1 Visa interview experience in the above link.
F1 Visa Interview and Lies
I have attended twice for the F1 Visa interview, that was on july 2010.
I have 2 years of work experience in software.
Now I’m planning for the third time for August intake.
On first interview the visa officer asked me about the graduation percentage. I have given correct answer on that interview.
But on the 2nd interview I increased my percentage and said wrong.
Friends please suggest me the answers what answer should i give if visa officer asks me same question for third time.
You are asking what answer should you give for academic percentage during third F1 visa interview.
- In first place who asked you to lie and increase your academic percentage?
- Did you care to ask anyone before deciding to increase your percentage?
- Did you think about the consequence if you were caught lying?
- You could have done a huge favor to yourself, if you had asked “I’m planning to lie during my visa interview, should I lie?”
Recently in US Consulate in Hyderabad, they have introduced H1B Beneficiary attestation document. In that you will see an important sentence
I understand that any false, knowingly incorrect, or misleading statements made to a consular or immigration official may result in a permanent ineligibility for a visa to the United States of America.
If you lie and get caught, you are likely to get permanent ineligibility for a visa to the United States of America, if it’s for H1B or F1 or any other visa.
If you are planning to lie, then go ahead and do that. But, get ready to face the end result – permanent ineligibility for a visa to the United States of America.
From US Consulate Website: F1 Visa Denials Reasons
U.S. consular officers are only allowed to issue non-immigrant visas to those applicants who qualify under the law. A visa can be refused for a variety of reasons.
For example, your visa application could be denied if you have a criminal record, if you lie during your visa interview, or if you have lived in the United States illegally.
Hopefully, you know the answer to your question by now.
