Visa interview

20 07 2007

After I stood in the first line for over an hour, the second line for about 10 minutes, the third line for about 40 minutes, then sat and waited for about 20 minutes, finally my number was called and it was my turn to be talked to a visa officer.
“Can you explain what a Flash designer is?” he asked. Well prepared as I was, I said, “I use Flash, which is a computer program, to design. blah blah.” Without even paying attention to my words, he was working on my documents and it took less than a minute for him to throw a green notice (approval notice) and an “Enjoy your day.” to me.

[+]经验:(老生常谈:)
地铁2号线石门一路(南京西路)1号出口,出来左转,到江宁路过马路,梅陇镇伊势丹二号门外排队。排的时候注意那一带同时有4,5条队,不要排错了。
核心的材料就那么几个:护照。两联申请费收据。一份网上英文填好生成的DS-156,正反面打印,贴一张照片,最后签名,第6、7、8、9、15、20和21栏用中文手写一些与英文信息相同的内容(包括姓名电码)。一份英文填好的DS-157(电子版打印出来的不灵,好多东西都写不下)。I-797原件。(H1-B是不需要填158表的,哈哈哈哈。)
带的一枝笔在填写邮局递送单的时候用上了。

[+]教训:(下次改进:)
临走的时候不应该把伞放在家里,排队的时候是在室外,而且中午十二点最热的时候,一排就是一个多小时。。。下次去带个手持的小电扇,或者哪怕带点水喝也是好的呀。
另外上海是不叫名字的,所以一天中几点去根本没有关系,我的感觉中午排队时间最久--办理的速度慢而来排队的人多。下次要么上午11:00左右去,要么2:00左右再去。

[+]花费:(我的,可供参考)
拍照 ¥50, 踩点路费¥6,打印表格(免费),交申请费路费¥8,申请费¥780,自取签证交费¥20(如果让邮局寄到家里就是¥35)。
