hello everyone. this forum helped me a lot in visa process.
so here it goes.
i took a bunch of documents with me incase they want anything i would show them
i had step1 result, step 2 permit, cs letter/schedule/appointment.
bank statements of my father (sponsor)
employment certificates/salary receipts/bank statement (current and previous)
medical school certificates (degree, grades,etc)
hotel booking confirmation at your test centre city
or any other document you feel to support your case..
-be relaxed and confident, nervousness and fear will worsen your chances
-prepare well. sometimes we dont want to share some of our information like financial assetes, personal affairs, i would advise you to share them in an explainable manner and everything must be true dont lie to them ever.i found VO very polite and kind. he gave me enough time to respond to his questions.
your case should make some sense.
MOST IMPORTANT part
-your cs trip is genuine reason to go to US. so be prepared to explain them why its important.
-WHY are you going at this time? and why not later?
-they need to know you non immigrant intent, so obviously u need to have strong ties to your home country. this visa is not only for your cs test appointment, but they give it for your residency interview trips, and then residency training as well. as they know the whole process....
my interview was on 12 th january 2015 and it went like 10 mints.
me: Good morning Sir.
Vo. Good morning.. how are you
me: im fine sir, how are you.
Vo: im fine thankyou, (guided me for finger print)...
VO: Ok, so what is the purpose of your trip to US
me: Sir, Im a doctor. i have to go to to US for my usmle step 2 clinical skills examination. by giving that, i will become ecfmg certified and then i can apply for residency training in US.
