 We we wanted to pass on a successful action that someone gave us. It could help you get your visa approve quickly. 

 

She he was told to dress professionally when she went to her interview at the consulate. Not to show up in jeans, T-shirts etc. She was told that she would be video recorded in the lobby while she waited and looked in on by the interviewers 

 

Well she showed up looking very nice and professional with a professional business jacket. She said that there were others who showed up in sandals, Mickey Mouse T-shirts and jeans.

 

She wasn’t the first person to arrive and was actually number 9 on the list. However she was the first person called and her interview went well. 

 

She was approved for her K-1 visa and arrives to the USA in less than three weeks!  

 

We hope this helps you as well. Good luck!

you supposed to take the visa interview seriously and of course you must include dressing up appropriately but getting a visa approved is not base on how you dress up..Its always depend on the case and not how you dress up during interview 😊😊im just saying

I have yet to see a single case of a visa being issued or refused, or the timeline for such, based on attire.

Sure, if you don't meet the basics then you could be denied entry (no shirt, no shoes, no service), and taking the process too lax is never a good sign, but a visa will only be issued based on the merits of the case.

I did consider dressing very nicely for the interview, but I can tell you that since I usually wear casual clothes, I realised I wouldn't feel on ease if I had dressed up. The interview is pretty stressful, so I'd say make sure you feel as relaxed as possible and just stay yourself. Of course one should dress neatly and look fresh, but I believe overdoing it can easily be quite counterproductive.

 

I wore a pair decent jeans (no holes, not too tight, no studs) and comfortable hoodie and my visa was approved just like that of other people in the waiting room whom I saw wear business-like clothes or summery pants and shirts.

^This, exactly. This is the type of stuff that will demonstrate eligibility for the visa

My post in no way was saying that you won’t get approved if you’re not dressed professionally. However in my fiancé’s case it certainly helped her to get in and out of there quickly. She arrived 9th in line and was the 1st called. That was my point.

How do you know it was because of the way she dressed?

It's like saying if you wear a blue shirt, you'll get in and out faster...because I did and it happened.
