Attending a nonimmigrant visa interview can be a daunting process. Seemingly insignificant information verbally provided to the officer or a single document you showed him during the interview may result in a rejection. This is because a visa interview is not merely a matter of providing documents; rather, you must review and understand the documents associated with this process, and understand how you are eligible for the particular visa you are applying for. Having a sufficient understanding of eligibility requirements is crucial, because, in certain scenarios, you may even have to explain to the officer that their application of the law is incorrect, and articulate how you meet the requirements. For example, an H-1B worker in the consulting industry must be ready to explain how he maintains a valid employer-employee relationship with his H-1B sponsoring company when he is assigned to work at the end-client’s location.
A mock interview can help you avoid a denial, as it gives you a chance to make sure that all necessary documents are gathered, help you avoid common mistakes, and give you the confidence in answering the officer’s questions. It is imperative that all of your information is correct, sufficient and you present the information in an effective, concise and simple manner. These goals can be achieved through a simple, 30-minute mock interview.
