Perfect case to be approved.......but

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a dilemma about mentioning my last trip to visit my fiancee in the final interview. We both are from India. (She is still in India). Our case has been delayed for almost a year because Embassy lost our papers. we both wanted to be together, so last month I planned a trip to India and from there we went to Maldives. Well, Now I think it could create a problem for us. Becuase In india, we usually are not allowed to be together like that (culturally). So if we mention it during the interview then i fear they might suspect we got married and went to Maldives. And, If I do not mention that then i fear they might already know that we went to Maldives together.

what are the chances that they already know that we went to Maldives? What are your thoughts? I know honesty is the best policy but in this case it might hurt us. ohter than this everything else is just perfect, atleast I feel that way.

I don't know what the chances are, but this is something you should keep in mind:

1) IF THEY ASK... reply always with the truth, the way you just said it here.

2) IF THEY DON'T ... do not volunteer information.

Good advice.

I know its easier said than done, but plz do remember every embassy is different.

When it comes to indian embassy i am sure with so many years of experience behind them , they would have done the research on what the indian culture is and what is expected. My Advice : I would say dont lie to them ( beacuse they can find out very easily ) but be very well prepared on the questions that would come about the trip. It all depends on your answers.
