Visa Applicant (VA): Goodmorning Ma am, how are you today? my name is , and i am here for a visa interview
Visa Officer(VO): Morning, can i have your payment, and can your wife and child go outside (I still kept my calm)
VO: Why do you want to go abroad
VA: To relax, Spend time with my wife, alone, and also buy a few things. all these people that go abroad, they come and inflate the prices of things, so that's why i decided to wait till whenever i will travel,again, then i will go and buy things myself, cheeeeeppppp.
VO: You will hear from us in 15days. Please give me your other documents.
VA: Have a good day, and remember, always keep a smile, it helps the skin.
Meanwhile, the person interviewing my wife was firing questions and she fired back with intelligent, pristine answers.
I think dressing well, looking clean, smart and being intelligent helps a lot in visa applications. Those visa guys watch out for naive, dull people. A guy was being battered with questions and was answering jargon.He first said he went to Unilag, later he said Ife, they asked who the VC of his School was, he couldn't.
I sent a mail after 9 days to ask for visa status and they said it had been granted after 4 days.
Guys, be bold and try not to be intimidated during visa interviews.
