How can you save time and improve your chances of getting a US visa during your interview? The US embassy of Nigeria has produced an infographic to help potential candidates save time and improve the process.
Below is a list of the steps to be taken by candidates:
It is important that you arrive at least half an hour before your appointment. You will be searched and your reservation confirmed.
Late coming could lead to a lot of problems, so leaving home early to avoid traffic and any other unforeseeable delays will be an advantage.
2. Check in
To do a proper check-in upon arrival, you will need the following things:
– Your passport
– DS-160 confirmation page
– MRV fee receipt
– Appointment letter
Part of the security protocol is that no electronics or liquids are allowed. So in order to save time, it is better leave your bags, belts and heavy jewelry at home or in your car.
Be prepared to give your passport and passport photo. It will be easier, if during your online application you upload a qualifying photo already.
Also, your fingerprint will be scanned, all fingers on both hands. Make sure your fingers are dry and free of wounds or bumps to ensure that this process goes a lot smoother.
6. Interview process
For the interview proper, here are the documents to give out to the officers at each section. For B1/B2, just your passport. For F1/F2/M1, your passport and I-20s. For H1B/L1/B3, your passport and petition.
