The interview is a very important part of the process to obtain the Visa. Thus, it is important to follow the steps correctly.
Some tips for the American Visa interview
Bringing all necessary and support documentation organized
You must attend the interview with a valid passport, the confirmation page and the document demonstrating that you have paid the fees for the Visa.
In the case of children, it is important that you verify whether you will be requested to present a Birth Certificate, since this is often the case. This copy must have been issued 3 months prior to the interview date. If one of the parents has the legal custody of the child, you must bring the corresponding documentation of the case.
The first thing you will be asked to do is to present your passport. It must be valid and it must be in a good condition. In the majority of cases, it must be valid for the following six months. This requirement may vary depending of the Consulate where the petition is filed.
You must have all the documentation necessary to prove that you comply with all the requirements needed to be granted a Visa. If you have a passport bearing an American Visa that has been lost or stolen, you must bring the official complaint of the case with you.
Finally, if you have been arrested or deported in the United States, you must bring the documentation of your case.
It is advisable to place all the documentation in a transparent plastic folder, and to have its contents well organized. You must not bring or deliver sealed folders to the staff of the Consulate.
Going with an appropriate appearance and smartly dressed
Appearances is a very important matter. As it is with any other aspect in your life, you must cause a good impression.
You do not need to overdo it and dress as if you were attending a wedding. However, it is important to transmit the message that you actually possess the economic and legal means to be in the U.S.
