Reached there around 9.00 am. I had to wait until 9.30 am under the sun but I was so excited so no worries. around 9.30 am They called me and scan me from head to toe. After that, they push me in the main VISA room. There I waited for approximately 1 hr. I was on the 3rd serial for counter 4. The most amazing thing is that the visa interview was going in front of you. that means you literally can hear what the candidate is saying to the VO.

Then the scan my 10 fingers.

Then VO told me that “I’m passing you the deposit slip that you have to pay and go home”. I was shocked and I said should I have to return the bank slip or my passport. Because I heard that they’ll keep my passport and took the bank slip. Vo said, “NO NO you pay the money and go home”. I again ask don’t you require any deposit slip ?? He said, “NO just pay and go home”. I ask him about the time. He told me to chill also said you have plenty of time and it will take approximately 4-5 weeks.

But in my mind, I was not convinced and after the payment come back to the embassy reception again. And they told me that they will call me again for my passport after my VISA get processed.
