VO : Don’t worry it will be followed as u mentioned in the app. Interview as for about 16mins..the longest one i experienced at tat point in time.

Stepped out while a sigh…uffff

I was relieved. This is simple I thought..i immediately step out.

Was searching for my fone to call a friend and notify him on this but I recollect tat it was with the security at the entrance gate.

I was there at the counter and gave her token to collect my stuff, in btw I was talking to a Chinese couple, he said his wife had a rejection and were sad on this.

I said thank god he gave mine…bad news comes in shockingly, the security lady asked me to go back in as he wants to see me again …please go to the same counter.

He wants to see u again…My heart sank, I started sweating I was losing confidence,, I thought this isn’t happening, something is wrong.

I went back to the same counter; he rejected another guy in this 2mins time.

I excused myself in and told him ” u wanted to see me ” he said yes, so looking at my application again,

VO : Wat is ur father in US again?

Me: US?? My father is in India.

VO: Oh sorry!! What does he do. Which business is he in??

Me: Diesel generators and iron ore business.

VO: What do u plan to do after ur studies?

Me:  Come back home and start business.

VO: Which business

Me: ….computing….

VO: He said ” I feel tat u alredy have a stable career(same shit again)..thanx for your patience but this time we can’t give u a visa …sorry..but!!!

..he gave me a paper..i started to look at it..found the keyword. Strong ties..i said strong ties.

Holding my folder About to open as I was expecting this question so I carried the property documents that I purchased an year ago in India with a CE certificate and the municipal tax receipt .

He said sorry sir.

Please read the documents when u go home.

Thank you have a nice day

Conclusion is i was given a visa and then after 10 mins the VO called the decision off.

Do you feel that I should reapply in this situation and explain it to them that I have a property which i don’t intended to abandon at any cost?

  1. Gud day. Urgent answer pls. Is lincoln university, Oakland California a good university? Pls pls pls ans me pls. My young bro is about to go for interview. Thanks

  2. helo family, this is a very unique blog for discussing visa issues. i have learned much on how to answer some visa interview quetions. Up till now, i am still uncertain about how to answer this question when asked: ‘What is your tie to your how country or you look like a potential immigrant, i don’t think you will come back?’
    please help me with the answer; i am preparing for an interview soon. thanks for your kind gesture.

  3. what will be will definitely be. i believe that wasn’t your day. your day is coming someday. take heart.

  4. your visa was rejected because ITU-san jose is a fraud university. it has around 1500 indian students (mostly hyderabad) and it is one of those places which give CPT easily or you can work illegally somewhere else while maintaining phony status of F-1. No genuine student will go to ITU.

  5. It’s may b because of the ITU it’s a kind of black listed university or he might hav thought that u r a potential immigrant going to that Uni.

  6. Becareful from ITU(San-Jose) Dude. It is brother of Trivalley & Herguan university. Already In December, DHS & Immigration officials raided on ITU for the renewal of licence. The officials are waiting for a proof to take action & close the univ. as it is not Accrediated University and they issued CPT illegally & allowed students to work part time. Even though you worked in HP in India its tough to get H1-B based on ITU degree as it is not Accrediated.

    Even though you have gathered lot of information from your friends in ITU, but still, personally i know about that university I suggest not to go to that particular University. Take Transfer to another Univ. and you will be safe in all situation’s. Remember my words.


  7. Unbelievable

    It wasn;t your day. Being a working expatriate might have weaken your case Should go for re-apply and try make your work abroad sound positive to VO.

  8. Hi,
    It’s really disheartening what happened to you. Explore the link: http://travel.state.gov/visa/about/how/how_1463.html
    Get in touch with someone at the visa office probably an authentic counselor/visa specialist. You can mail them your query or over the phone seek advice. While talking to them try not projecting the visa officer as someone who is heel bent on rejecting applications, rather highlight that he seemed confused and kept repeating questions. This should work out in your favor. I have heard that visa officers have to follow some caps/limits on visa issuance. So just know that you had a bad day.
    all the very best!

  9. What is shocking in this interview?
    It is normal…!!!!!
    Nothing is new..!!!!!!
    The VO asked his doubts..
    And the candidate replied positively.
    Hence he got the visa..

    1. Read Part 2.. The real action happens there.. Looks like HSBguy has been watching too many movies, hence the split! 😀

  10. I think because you already gave the visa in Malaysia i.e. away from India. Additionally you didnt mention anywhere this property linked to your coming back to India. It may have seemed to him that you have been already working in Malaysia why would you say you ll go back to India. Somewhere this make *me* believe that your already away and may just stay away from India.

  11. Never mind… I was granted visa in the interview ( November 2011) and later when I received my passport there was no stamping of visa …. After repetitive attempts to contact embassy they said that my visa was “probably” rejected but they are not sure and I was never given any specific reason of rejection…. So i never trust them and hence I am in London now pursuing my masters….

  12. Hi Shahiturk,
    What made the Visa officer to think you have STRONG TIES. Did he mistook that you are planning to start your own company in US.
    Siva Kumar

  13. Definitely an unusual visa interview. Difficult to decide for the reapplication. But looks like you have more chances of getting it next time as VO had almost approved your visa. You can use it as a strong point to convince the VO in next interview. Take one more chance . Good luck.
