F1 Visa Interview Hyderabad 2012
My visa interview on 16th December 2011 (my luckiest day forever in my life)
Outside Hyderabad Consulate
Me and my friend went to the visa office before 9.30 am in the morning and my visa interview at 10.15am i felt very nervous at that mean time i am roaming and searching for the people who are coming from the visa interview.
Ii want to ask the people how the visa interview is going on , how the visa rating is today but i feel nervous and shy to ask them.
I can see the people face who are coming from the visa interview all of them are dull face no face was glowing so that i can understand that they are not got the visa.
In between i am talking with my friends.
Before Entering into Consulate
The time is about 9.45am in the morning the cops are calling the persons who is having the interview most of the people are came in a line and showing there visa appointment letters to the cops.
I follow the line up to the usa embassy there are some security persons said that take your appointment letter and passport to show them the time is 10.00am i showed up and went inside.
