You filled out the questionnaire, set an interview date, prepared all the documents and justifications for why you need to go to the U.S. and then remains the most important step; to be interviewed by a visa officer. The interview takes place with each applicant individually. Some interviews can be for 30 seconds, but most last between 5 to 15 minutes. It is very important to come to the interview in the right mood, to keep your mind clear and not to allow yourself to be nervous or in a state of panic. Obviously, the officer will see your reactions as well as hearing your answers so there is a real human factor involved. So, to some degree, getting a visa to the US is like playing the lottery!
You will be able to learn the decision of the visa officer on the day of the interview, after the interview is completed and all other matters are finished.
Typically, a visa officer can make 3 decisions about your visa:
Whatever decision is made, it is very important to understand that the responsibility for the application and interview falls on you. You should understand that when you get a visa there is a possibility that the embassy will track your trips to see how long they lasted. If you are in the U.S. for a long time, you may be called for a second interview.
If your application is refused under Article 221 (g) it is very important to clearly comply with all the requirements stated by the officer. If you have any doubts or don’t fully understand what to do, you should seek professional advice.
If your application is refused under Article 214 (B) you should not despair. You should think about what happened, assess your behavior and answers during the interview, and the information you provided in your application. Maybe your current ties to the homeland are not strong enough to convince the officer. Whatever the reason, it is worth trying to assess your situation so that the next time you apply for a visa, your application will get a favorable result.
