FAQ

How was your US visa interview experience?
I’m sharing my experiences (step by step) of attending the Interview on 6th July,2018 as follows.On the Day of Interview, there was a huge rush at the US Consular Office. Our Interview was there at 8.45 AM. But we (me & my colleague) reached there around 8.15 AM. There were 2 queues at the beginning i.e. 8.15 AM & 8.30 AM bannered Queues. Then 8.15 A.M bannered queue was replaced with 8.45 A.M bannered queue at exact 8.45 A.M. After 5 min, a person came who instructed us to keep Passport out from the Clear file along with the VISA Confirmation Letter & Appointment Letter, which were stamped by very previous day in VAC Office of Chennai. With getting ready of all these documents, the queue started moving. There were many securities –1st Lady Security: Please go ahead2nd Gent Security: Do you have Mobile phone?Ans-No,Q - do you have any electronic gadget?Ans: No,Q- please remove your watch and keep it inside your file.Ans: Ok, Thanks3rd Lady Security: Do you have Money Purse?Ans: NoQ- Ok please pull the door to enter inAfter entering into the huge heavy iron door, a security check team were there. They told to keep that file in a container provided by them & put in the automatic panel like there in Flight security check-up. By the mean time they told me to enter in a metal detective door by following the queue. After that one lady scanned all my dresses with a hand scanner, instructed me to go left to collect my file. I collected my file & pulled another door to enter inside a hall. A tall person requested me to sit down on the Chair present in the 1st line. In each stage there were CC TVs. After 5 min, he instructed to start moving by following the queue. Really, it was like opening the hidden doors. I was following the queue. Till that point also I was following to my Colleague who was there in front of me. After that all the people get inside to another separate building which was located around 300-400m from this building.There were around 3-4 securities who guided us the path to enter to the 1st phase of the building where 2 queues were there to check those documents kept outside of the file previously. For me, a foreigner (male, who was there inside the glass cabin) requested the Passport & an Indian (who seated outside of the Glass cabin) asked rest 2 documents to check. Then both of them given the 3 documents & show me the next hall where the actual Interview was happening. At that time, I was followed by a lady in the same queue & my colleague was there just before that lady in the same queue. Around 45 min passed after reaching the Consular Office from outside.Then a lady security was there who allowed the queue till my colleague & let us to seat & wait for some time. After 5 min again from the 1st person (lady) to follow the same queue. More 15 min we were there in that queue. Some observations done by me while standing in that queue as follows:There were around 12-14 Glass Chambers (separated), where all foreigners were sitting inside as the Interviewer’s. In each cabin there were a mike (for us) & loudspeaker (to get their voice correctly). I was really surprised to heard Tamil conversion going on in one of the cabins between a foreigner (male) & a 70 years old man. In another cabin, a beautiful lady was taking the Interview of a Vaastu Specialist (male, around 57 years). The Q & A were as follows:Specialist: Hello, Good MorningInterviewer: Hello, how are you doing?Specialist: Fine Ma’amInterviewer: What are you doing?Specialist: I’m a Vaastu Specialist.Interviewer: What is Vaastu?Specialist: Vaastu is like doing the forecasting by analyzing different scenarios before building a home.Interviewer: What is your Purpose of visit then?Specialist: My Client wants to buy a home in US, Virginia, So, they called me…. (2-3 mins)Interviewer: Sorry I can’t give you the VISA. Please take your Passport.Really the lady Interviewer was so strict. After that the lady security assigned my colleague in the same line where the Vaastu Specialist’s interview done. He was waiting for his turn as another person’s interview was going by the same Interviewer. Then suddenly the security assigned me into the 1st chamber of left corridor & requested me to stand beyond a yellow marked line in that chamber, because another person’s interview was going on.While standing on that yellow waiting line, I saw a lady was taking the Interview for a person (male), So, I was waiting for my turn. I tried to encounter all my confidence to clear the Interview & was praying God to get the success. I just saw the person got success in the Interview & wished to the Interviewer with a big Thank you. Now it’s my turn. She indicated me to come.Me: Hi, Good MorningInterviewer: Good Morning, Passport please..hey what is the purpose of your visit?Me: (Gave my passport through the path provided in the glass chamber) The purpose of my visit..Interviewer: Hey can you please come closer to the mike because you aren’t audible to me.Me: Sure Ma’am. Thank you.. (After reaching at the mike) My purpose of the visit is to gather all the business requirements for the phase 2 of the audit application, what we have designed so far.. to understand the business. Then come back to India, sit with my technical Team & give a proposal.Interviewer: Ok..What is the Audit Application?Me: Audit Application, what we have designed for all the Auditors who are working at ships. This application eliminates all those traditional manual processes with pen & papers with the automated one. So, that they can do audits & generate certificates through our application. The 1st phase of this application has already completed, now it’s the time of second phase because of which different people from different places are coming to take part in the discussion which will be held from July 16 onwards. I’m going there to gather the requirement for phase -2 to understand the business.Interviewer: What is your Designation?Me: I’m working as a Business Analyst in BSOL Systems Private Limited.Interviewer: What is this B.S.O.L?Me: Oh.. It’s my company. Business Solutions, a marine IT Industry, where 123 is one of the Clients.Interviewer: What is this 123 ?Me: Oh 123 ?

(I was so happy because she didn’t return the passport & congratulate me)So, this is all about my experiences. I received my Passport from Bangalore Consular office after 5 days.

ID Card like Aadhar Card, PAN Card, DL, etc.Hope sharing my experiences will help you a lot to crack you US VISA Interview.All the Best!!!

Is the date of birth mandatory for passport application?
Yes. The DOB AND the state issued Birth Certificate is required before the US Passport Application can begin. There is a paper DS-11 application form you can familiarize yourself with prior to the birth of your child.https://www.state.gov/documents/...All applications we process are online, printed and signed. A DOB is a required field (as well as SSN) when filling out the application.
When filing the US passport form for a name change, which boxes contain the old name vs the new name?
The DS 82, is the form to file for a name change if your passport is over 1 year old. The DS 11 is needed if the passport is over 15 years old. If the passport is under 1 year old it is a DS 5504. In all of these cases, the name you put on the passport in the "Name" section on the first page is the new name.  At the end of the forms it will ask if you have changed your name since the last passport and you can answer accordingly. Incidentally I never complete the paper form, and the Passport Agencies do not prefer them (these are the ones you find at the post office).  I recommend the online form - printed at the end.  It is cleaner, easier to complete, and offers less errors.  It is created with a barcode the government agent scans, and is the reason why it is preferred at the passport agency.

How do I apply for a passport at the post office? What are the prices?
First of all, it's important you know that not all post office locations accept passport applications. So before you do anything else, visit the Where to Apply page on the Department of State's website. There, you'll be able to find the facility (postal or non-postal) most convenient for you.Edit: The fees are established by the Department of State, and will be the same wherever you go. Current fees can be found here: Passport Fees. Please note that this list of fees does not include the cost of passport photos, which will depend on where/how you acquire them.Once you've located the most convenient location to apply (and, if necessary, set an appointment), you'll need to bring the following items with you:Proof of citizenship. This is usually a birth certificate (original or certified copy), naturalization certificate, or a previously-issued U.S. passport.Government-issued photo identification. Most people who come to my office just use a driver's license. Some use military ID cards.One passport-sized photo. Many acceptance facilities offer this service on-site. You can also purchase passport photos at a number of retail locations. The requirements for passport photos are very specific, and can be found here: Photo RequirementsPayment. Personal checks or money orders are almost always required for the fees to the Department of State. There will also be a separate execution fee paid to the location where you submit your application. Check with the facility before you go to find out what forms of payment they accept. Fees can be found here: FeesNot necessary, but very helpful - a completed application. You can download form DS-11 here: http://www.state.gov/documents/o... - be sure to use black ink! All passport application acceptance facilities are also required to have blank forms on hand, so if you are unable to print one out in advance, you can fill it out there.You are not required to complete the application in front of an authorized acceptance agent. You only need to sign it in front of them. So please, do yourself and your local acceptance agent a favor, and fill that application out in advance. My office accepts applications by appointment, and it's really annoying when people are unprepared, and take up their time and that of the next person because they have to call a dozen relatives to find an emergency contact, or to determine a parent's place and date of birth.

What happens if I need to renew an expired US passport for a trip, but I can't find it? Can I just report it lost? What are the
Here’s the thing, you might need to report it lost. Because you cannot submit your passport with your application, you aren’t eligible to use form DS-82 in order to renew your passport by mail, you’ll have to submit an application in person at a passport acceptance facility. You’ll also have to submit form DS-62 in addition to form DS-11 when you submit your passport application.Now, as someone who has lost two passport books, I’ll tell you exactly what happens. The first time, they print a special remark near the back of your passport indicating that this is a replacement for a lost or stolen passport. This is what it looked like in Mike Gogulski’s passport when he renounced his U.S. citizenship in 2008:Now, here’s the kicker: the second time, I was issued a one-year, limited validity passport book and told that if I could hold on to it, I could apply again in a year to get a 10 year passport. Failing that, I could be denied U.S. passports in the future.
