Interview Failure

Many people used to fail during their visa processing at the time of their DV-2018 visa interviews in their country US Embassies. Not only these people had lost their American visas, but also their right to live their life in the USA along with their visa processing fees. The amount of money they paid for the  visa processing fee is looked as large amount by the third world country people. So it is their duty to check their eligibility thoroughly, before they pay such large amount.

Many people think once they had been selected as winner, in the visa draw, they will get their visas without any difficulties. They must understand that lot of things can affect their eligibility for to be a clean and eligible winner to get the visas.

2. Perfect Initial Form filling.

Plenty of applicants couldn’t get their American Visas as they couldn’t provide their affidavit of support through the I-134 in time. This should be from their relatives or friends who are living in the USA with LPR or as an US citizen. This Affidavit of support is looked as a serious matter, by the Embassy staff as they don’t want the new comers to be stranded on the streets of the USA without proper care and proper support.

So make one affidavit of support while keep someone with it as an stand by one in case the original one is not good or if you didn’t receive it in time.
