Mohsin CS VISA EXPERIENCE(PAKISTAN)
Hey!my experience will specifically help those who are done with usmle step1 and applied for B1/B2 VISA on the basis of CS exam without taking step2 exam.
Before the INTERVIEW:
Get your VISA LETTER (m.imp) document. step 1 score card. step 2 permit and step 2 confirmation letter
Get a bank statement of your supporting person and its good if the supporting person is your father or a bother. Bank statement is one of the very imp documents and it has a greater chance of being asked by the VO than the job letter/leave letter/pay slips. get the bank statement attested by the bank manager with his seal. it makes it more authentic.
I would recommend a job although some people get the visa without job but job is one of the things that shows ur strong ties with your home country and the job is the ist thing mentioned under the headline "ties to your country" in the us consular affairs website .get a job certificate and if you can get leave letter of 8 to 10 days thats good and if you have your pay slips thats making your job more authentic and not a forged one!
if you dont have the leave letter than dont get worried tell the VO(VISA OFFICER) that my department will give me the leave upon the arrival of my visa and if u dont have the pay slips than dont worry either. the job letter will suffice hopefully.
Now the issue of CK permit comes if you are determined to take your ck in the next few months than i would recommend paying the ck fees and getting it. although not absolute must and most people get the CS Visa without ck permit but if u are determined to take your ck in the next 5 to 6 months and you eventually have to pay your fees than why not now, it will give a good image of your application if the VO asks you so when are you taking your CK? u can show the VO that you are determined to take it and you have paid the fees.
Property documents are not necessary to be taken along with you if they are not in English and theres no specific need for them but if you have them in english carry them.
book the hotel from the internet websites like booking.com while searching for the hotels you will see some with pay later tag, select one of them and book the hotel according to your plans and book a cheaper one which you can really afford for the time you are putting in your application.make a print of the booking confirmation, you can cancel the booking without any charges.book a hotek thal is nearer to ur CS centre. check it out from Google maps
take your fcps part 1 congrats letter with you..
althoug you will see from a no. of websites that u should have affidavit of support and affidavit of non immigrant intention ,i dnt know anyone who was asked by the VO that whther or not u have these documents with you,you can see the sample of these affidavits from immi.help websites, although i have atached these files ,you can change them according to ur specific case
Booking the interview:
go to the PIA Building near hospitality Inn on the AGerton road lahore aftering entering the building turn right and you will see the AEG board thats american express office.the documents that you will need is
reach the 3rd avenue ,islamabad shuttle service by 6am or max 6;30 the earlier u get the earlier ull reach the embassy and the earlier ull get to the VO when hes fresh and in good mood before hes irritated by a lot of unprepared and totally frustrating applicants.although the VO are highly professional but its better to be on the safe side.
there are two shuttloe system in islamabad one is the bus it takes 200 but leaves after half an hour .and thers an express van it takes 500 but leaves after every 15 mins take the express van.it will save you from a lot of hassle
when you are waiting for ur turn at the waiting room dont get worried at the refusal of visas for other people coz the refusal rates for those going to take cs are much lower than those going for student visa visitor and business visas.so sit quietly and relax.dont reherse your answers there it will just lead to anxiety rehearse it the days before ur interviiew
when your token no. is called upon go to ur respective counter and be the ist one to greet the VO with good morning how are you.and now finally the interview
ME: Good morning sir, How are you?
VO: fine, thankyou. what about you?
VO: so tell me why are you going to visit usa?
Me: to take my step 2 CLINICAL STEPS examination.
VO: do you have your visa letter with you?
ME: yes sir i have it with me n i showed it to him along with my CS permit and date confirmation.he looked at the visa letter and started reading it very carefully and put the cs permit along with the visa letter and read both of them and than typed something on the computer,dont know what was he doing on the compueter confirming these documents or whatever.while he was looking at these documents i told him that sir, i have also taken my CK permit and have also confirmed a date for it
VO: he looked upon me n said) ok, show me the ck permit
ME: yes sir here it is
VO: looked upon it very carefully. than typed something on the computer VO: OK, who is supporting you?
me: MY father, here is his bank statement
VO: what are you doing currently?
Me: doing a job as a medical officer at a bhu i have my service certificate and pay slips with me
VO: OK. than continued typing on the computer for some time
VO: Ok, your visa is being approved and ull get ur visa within 5 days.
ME: thankyou sir, have a nice day.
he was asking from other cs applicants whats ck whats step3 ,whats CS ..so be prepared for these questions and also learn whats ecfmg and usmle stands for
it lots depends upon ur luck being a cs candidate has high chances of success for visa, but things can get wrong at any time.do a good rehearsal of the interview learn the commmon questions and their answers be prepared for any unexpected question,look confidant at all times even if the things are not going as u expected and dont argue and dont show any disrespect ,getting anxious is normal and the VO knows that too so mild anxiety wont badly affect ur case but try to act normal.
