  • Better to keep all your documents in order and keep them in transparent folders
  • Cooperate with security officers and complete your security check
  • Get your documents verified by the staff before moving to Visa interview

  • Do not talk loudly with others while waiting for your turn for the interview
  • Observe and listen to the questions asked to other applicants who are taking the interview before you

  • When your turn comes be confident, smile and wish the visa officer (Good Morning officer or Good Afternoon officer)
