  • Getting my US visa

    Getting my US visa

    Hi travel junkies, welcome to my second blog post of travel tips. If you followed me on my Instagram, you notice that I recently travel to California and the holiday went so perfect. Today, I wanted to share all the details about how I apply for my US visa and how you can get yours too! Just so you know, I am not using any travel agent but my own two hands.

    What you need to take note

    Firstly, all the document that they needed. If you have a spouse or family staying in the US or you are married to American then it is will be easy for you and you will have higher chance to be accepted. US government know every little information about yourself, so don’t cheat because they know and don’t lie about your information.

    Second, you need to contact the travel agent and asked them what kind of document you need to have in your hand, especially when you have no support such as that I mentioned above. For the first time traveler, you have higher chances to be accepted but again depend on how you manage to answer during the interview. The key to the interview is PERFECT ENGLISH – you don’t have to develop an accent. A well structured English sentence and punctual pronunciation, also with a good manner when you answer. BE POLITE AND PROFESSIONAL.

    Third, you just gotta have income in a particular country and city where you applied for the visa. if you don’t then say ‘good byeto your visa. I mean a professional income not illegal.

    I guess that’s all the key. For outfit, US embassy doesn’t think you should have dress glamorously or way over neat. Just casual and polite.

    DOCUMENT

    All of the document on the US embassy along with all the necessary document, especially if you have no income and need someone to sponsor you, therefore you need all the necessary income such as the sponsor recent income letter (a year). This is subjected to any changes, so it is better to ask with travel agent.

    Travel agent won’t ask you for money or engage in their services if you happened to only ask about the necessary document. Ask two or more agent because some agent doesn’t update for a quite long time for all the necessities.

    Inside the US embassy (Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia)

    You may need to check the address of the US embassy, because sometimes they move to other places. Normally the US visa website will give the most updated address.

    From this onward is my own personal experience during that time. I arrived in the embassy and have to give the security guard all my items that I carry, including handbag and phone. I can only bring the document, they also check the document by scanning it. Then I go inside the embassy.

    The staff give me a number for me to go along as the number are called. in the morning, the staff will collect the document and telling me whether it is a complete document or not.

    then I have to wait before my turn to scan my finger print, they also will call the number. so, the number is only 1 number used from collection of document, scanning finger prints and interview. There is a row for each of this destination.

    After I scan my finger print. I will be called for interview. Since my brother is working in Us and my sister have already done her own visa application. My visa is being granted successfully, just by 3 question and I do have perfect English. Well.. not necessarily perfect, they probably check on my education and I graduate with 2 degree in an English speaking country, while one of them is Ireland. Just to let you know, if your visa has been granted, they will take the passport and you have to wait for 1-2 weeks before you can collect your passport. They give you a paper that say “Congratulation, your visa application is success”

    Collection is available in other office for US embassy in Surabaya. They also can deliver to your home, with condition that your home is located in the area where they operated. For example, I don’t live in Surabaya, therefore I have to collect in the address given to me. My hometown doesn’t have any US embassy office or even office that manage all the passport to be deliver at all.

    How is my experience?

    There is lots of people are being rejected with their vis application. One guy did asked me how is my visa going. I have given the key above to have your US visa succes. I will not be going to share what kind of questions and how answer it because all the factor that I mentioned on this article that get me the visa is just based on my guess. I believe that US embassy have their valid reason to accept or reject your application and I do not know about it, since I don’t work in US embassy.

    The things that I focus on is to answer with an honest and truth answer with polite manner without any justification or push factor from the words come out. I deal with officer before, and that’s how my attitude will be. All you have to do is treat them with manner.

    I applied in Surabaya, just so you know, I live in this city for as long as I could remember about more than 7 years. I do live in Jakarta too. The things about Indonesian is no matter where they go, they act like they own everything in this world and sometimes they have no politeness in dealing with officer. They don’t respect them, this kind of attitude already breeding inside as a lifestyle. I notice most of the people that get rejected is because they have no proper attitude but arrogancies that they portray as they answer the question.

    Imagine if you are the officer, would you granted the visa? For me, I don’t think so.
