Most asked visa interview questions

There are no specific questions we can say are the most asked during visa interviews, all the visa interview questions listed above are what you should expect, nothing more nothing less.

Are visa interview questions usually hard?

Visa interview questions are not hard at all, they are just questions to test how sincere you are about your purpose of visit to a specific country and you should try all your best to just be sincere so that you won't be denied the visa.

The questions above are basically what you will be asked at any visa interview. Don't expect the questions to come directly as written here. Most times the questions are not asked exactly but they might mean the same thing and require the same answers. Just use your initiative in understanding and answering the questions.

Visa interviews are psychological interviews, that is why in some cases fraudsters are granted visas while gentlemen are denied. It is mainly a psychological test.

When you enter the interview room, don't be afraid, be very bold and answer the questions you will be asked with confidence.

If the interviewers notice that you are frightened and afraid, they might deny you the visa because they might think that you have other intentions for intending to visit their country.

Try and be sincere by all means but don't be sincere in everything. This is what i mean, if you are asked of the reason why you want to visit their country, just tell them the truth about your purpose of visit. 

Don't lie because you might be caught, and if you are caught lying then just forget about getting the visa.

Another scenario. If you are asked if you know any criminal, even if you know, you have to deny that you don't know any because if you tell the truth in this kind of scenario, there is nothing that will make them issue you a visa.

So just be wise and bold as you go for any visa interview.
