Successful US Student Visa Interview Tips

10 Tips for a Successful Visa Interview F-1 and J-1 Visas
The tips are intended to help you prepare for your visa interview at the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate in your home country.
1. Ties to Home Country Under United States law, all applicants for non-immigrant visas are viewed as intending immigrants until they can convince the consular officer that they are not.
2. English So, anticipate that the interview will be conducted in English and not in your native language.
3. Speak for Yourself Do not bring parents or family members with you to your interview.
4. Know the Program and How it Fits Your Career Plans If you are not able to articulate the reasons you will study in a particular program in the United States, you may not succeed in convincing the consular officer that you are indeed planning to study, rather than to immigrate.
5. Be Concise Because of the volume of applications that are received, all consular officers are under considerable time pressure to conduct a quick and efficient interview.
6. Supplemental Documentation It should be clear at a glance to the consular officer what written documents you are presenting and what they signify.
7. Not All Countries Are Equal Applicants from countries suffering economic problems or from countries where many students have remained in the United States as immigrants will have more difficulty getting visas.
8. Employment Your main purpose of coming to the United States should be to study, not for the chance to work before or after graduation.
9. Dependents Remaining at Home If your spouse and children are remaining behind in your country, be prepared to address how they will support themselves in your absence.
10. Maintain a Positive Attitude Since there is so much riding on this interview, many applicants will over stress during the interview.
