Today I have attended B1 VISA Interview with Mumbai Consulate. I would like to share my experience with you all.
Interview went like this:
Me: Hi.. Good Afternoon. How are you doing today?
VO: Great. How about you?
Me: Good. Thanks.
VO: Why are you going to US?
Me: Explained the purpose of my visit. In my case, to get knowledge on our client’s existing business.
VO: Have you been to US before?
VO: You have H1B VISA with you. Why didn’t you travel?
Me: I was already having a H1B VISA which is expiring this september. But as my project was kept on hold, I didnt go there. I explained the same to the VO. He stressed couple of times and took some time to check the things about the client of H1B VISA.
VO: So who is ur client now?
Me: Told my client name.
VO: For which company are you working currently?
Me: Told about my current company. He has keenly observed my company ID card which I had it visible to him.
VO: How long were you been with your current company?
Me: 2 Months I replied
VO: How long are you going to stay in US?
Me: 12 Weeks
VO: 12 weeks… Too long for Knowledge Transfer. Why do you need that much time?
Me: I have to discuss with the business users and understand the existing process. It might take series of meetings for me to understand the process. For that I need this much time.
VO: Whats your client? Repeat Question…
Me: I told the name once again. I think he is checking the client website in his computer.
Finally, the VO said “Ok Sir. Your VISA has been approved. You will receive your passport and VISA in a week time. Enjoy the day sir.”
Thanks much. Have a good day. Bye…
Please make a note of all the things in your mind before facing the interview. Who and all got stamped previously, pls recollect those things even…
I wish you all the success for all the aspirants.
