Think of the embassy interview as a job interview, and dress accordingly per your local culture.

I learned something new on VisaJourney today! :-)


"A pencil skirt is a slim-fitting skirt with a straight, narrow cut. Generally the hem falls to, or just below, the knee and is tailored for a close fit."

I wore a tank top to my interview and my bushy armpits didn't seem to bother the immigration officer, so I say go for it!

I don't want your suffering! I don't want your future!
I have neither legal training nor immigration expertise; all comments posted must therefore be consumed in that vein.
