ME: she has a fashion botique
Vo: how are they goin to pay
ME: i have a sanctioned loan and they have saving of XXX in there bank account(whch we borrowed and added to acc for visa purpose) I had only bank statement no pass book.
Then the golden words “YOUR VISA HAS BEEN APPROVED” he kept my passport with him. i was on cloud 9. coz ive been prep since a year. spent a whole year on this.
Finally got the fruit. its 19th today will go and collect my visa today from visa consulate.
Guyz the key to pass visa interview is
- Eye contact
- little bit attire
- practice interview question before going (i did it that so y i spoke with confidence with eye contact with VO)
