I am really happy to share my experience today as i got my visa approved at Bombay Consulate.
It was 21st May 7:30 AM and i entered in Bombay consulate, for my J1 Visa interview.
The purpose of visit is, My University in Gujarat (GTU) is sponsoring few student’s study in Kansas State Uni, for 2 months course for the two EC subjects which i am appearing here in my next 7th Sem,
As on 7 th May, they have approved 7 Visa out of 50 applicants under same purpose, I afraid for the same, but my friend Gaurav, who is regularly reading your posts, suggested me and help a lot me to build my confidence through various HSB visa experience,
After clearing legal procedures, rounding in queue of thousand aspirants! i got the token of 26th Window, I think, I was first to that window for that day.
Here is the Visa Officer
VO : Good Morning
Me : Good Morning Ma’m,
VO : Where are you going ?
Me : KSU for two months UG program
VO : passport and I 20 ?
Me : passed
VO : (Typing on PC) Why KSU ?
Me : Ma’m, I am one of the student of my university, that have collaborated with KSU for 2 months
course for two EC subjects and sponsoring the tuition fees.
VO : What is father doing ?
Me : Having own retail Store, and we have blah blah property, He is sponsoring my travel and living expenses
VO : I am approving your VISA, Happy journey
Me : Thank you mam.
Here what i want to share is :
Be concentrated on VO’s words, what she wants, is shared by her two or three words only, eye contact is making a good Communication, i think,
I gave a detailed and proper arranged words of my answer for her queries, So she seemed clear in my side.
I wish to tell also, that Posture and Gestures are also important as ,it tells – communicates too.
I stayed strong on window, no any movement, hands on free underlying, and in normal dress,
When she was typing i stared at her, looking her face for a while (was thinking, she seems like Michelle Obama ! )
