You shouldn't think too much about it! smile.gif Just wear something nice that you feel comfortable in.(you don't want to wear a itchy shirt or something that you don't like!) I wouldn't wear jeans and a tee though. But I'm sure a lot of people wear that to their interview... (I know that some people wear a suit and tie.)

Good luck!

I believe that we should dress appropriately. No belly showing, no cut out jeans that shows everything when we bend down lol. If you can ditch the jeans for that day do so, unless it is a nicely styled jeans with a great top and a nice pair of shoes and accessories. You dont want to appear as if you are the next welfare-case-to-be nor do you want to appear as if you are neither mature nor responsible.

When I went for my biometrics there was a lady there in a too-tight jeans that was also a hipster or whatever they call it. She bent over to pick up something that fell and someone's husband saw her exposed rump and went "wooooooo" with appreciation. I had to tell him ' not here sir, please do not do that here. This is the wrong place for you to be doing that, this place has eyes." He replied 'oh yeah you're right, I forgot where I was." While I think we should all exercise self control we should also dress appropriately. Can you imagine if that was his AOS interview? He would have been denied immediately. Anyway, dress nicely, you are representing your spouse so dress the part where he would give you a wink of approval and say, "I am so glad you are mine, you are looking wonderful." Get it?

All the best on your interview

Where what will make you confident and comfortable, and help you project that air of confidence is good.

Avoid clothing with slogans, jokes, or similar things. T-shirts with drug-oriented themes are out.

I'd suggest dressing as formally and businesslike as you like, but don't overdo it to the extent that it makes you feel stuffy, uncomfortable or too far out of your element. And there's no need to buy an expensive outfit just for the interview.

We saw some people in jeans, but most were dressed in slacks. Several were in formal business suits and ties.

As long as you're somewhere within the range of normal attire, I don't think it's too critical.

When I got my tourist visa I wore black dress pants, a nice pale green shirt, a jacket over it, heels and discrete accessories. Make up was low key, just a little bit of eye shadow, mascara, some blush and lip gloss. Easy with the perfume also, something very discrete. You want to convey a certain message so you need to look responsible.

just be discrete and remember that personal impressions of you may factor into how the IO reacts to u.

laughing.gif We had one of those ladies at my husband's CR1 visa interview too! She was on the plump side, and was wearing low-slung trousers. When she bent over she exposed this red thong that seemed to be constructed of a bunch of overlapping straps -- there was no way of missing it since she was a bit portly. The image of those red straps and all that white gooseflesh has been burned onto my retinas. dead.gif

The first thing you will be judged on is your appearance and you only get one chance at a first impression. Just think about it like its a job interview....they are determining whether or not you are 'qualified' to enter the country. Looking good NEVER hurts and it ALWAYS helps!! Best of luck!

That's one thing I love about my fianc嶪. I am certain she'll dress appropriately. She is a teacher, which may help, but she also has an excellent sense of fashion. I am hoping she can help me out a bit when she arrives. My mom and sister still buy my clothes for me. It's not that I am unkempt, rather like Einstein, my mind enjoys focusing on what it considers more important things.

I will wear the attire as if I go to the professional job interview, conservative types. If you have the suite, wear them. Neck-tie or bow-tie is optional.
