AVS Comments: 

During mock rounds with the client there was lack of confidence which ideally he should have having traveled so much and having active C1/D Visas. he spoke in broken sentences, extremely nervous and did not make an eye contact during the conversation. AVS capacity building helps gain confidence in answering questions during the US visitors visa interview.
