Any pointers for interview preparation at Mumbai for mother's IR5

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


My mother's IR5 interview is scheduled for 27th July at Mumbai. We hope we got all the paperwork ready. We could not get her marriage certificate (married in 1960) as my father passed away and the local authorities are not helping. I got affidavits from my living uncles.

Can you please help me with how the interview process at Mumbai ?

What are the typical questions asked at the interview ?
