Visa Interview Experience:
I have my appointment at 8.30. I reached at embassy gate at 8.00 am. At 8.15 am, my name was called in the security box. I have shown my passport and went inside for security screening. After that, I went to the interview rooms. It was looking like cash counter of a bank to me :P. Then a security lady gave me a list of rearranging the papers. I have arranged everything from my home so that I just take a look and check again. After 1 minute my name was called from counter number 6. It was the most left counter and quite separate from others. I went there and greet the Visa Offer. He was a young gentleman with short spike looking hair and french cut beard. He asked one set of photocopy documents along with my passport. After that, he told me, “Please wait in the waiting room for a moment. I am entering your data”. I came back to my old seat and started waiting with anxiety. The security lady also asked me what happened? Why I am waiting there. I told her and she assured me that everything is ok.
After 10 long minutes (Feel like 10 hours) the VO again called my name.
Me: Good Morning Sir.
VO: Good Morning. This is your passport. I have put a seal in it with the visa type, today’s date, and your application ID. This is not a visa. You have to bring this when you get the mail from us. And this is our mail id, you can mail us for any inquiries.
Me: Ok sir.
Then VO gave me my passport collection receipt and asked me to check the spelling of my name. After checking he asked to pass BDT 7100. Then he gave me a wet tissue to wipe my hand and took my fingerprint. After that, he asked for another set of document photocopy. Then he types for 2 minutes.
