I wonder what kind of people they hire or what kind of training they hv gone thru at the Emabssy.
My experience 3 years ago...
My 10yr visa had just expired.. and my sis had just finished her chemotherapy. So we thought we could take a well deserved holiday for Thanksgiving. So off we went to the interview which was already paid for.. per person was US$100.

That short fat white female interviewer asked my sis why she wanted to go to the US. So she told her why.. which was basically for a holiday and for shopping since my sis is a major Nike fan and i know there is a Nike Town store near Rodeo Drive area. Well.. that woman said to my sis.. why dont you just buy Nike stuff from Vietnam?
We both looked at her in total disbelief. What kind of imbecile asks such a question?
ugh.. i tell you.. only when u sit in that room full applicant and listen to all the questions that are asked, will you wonder what kind training the interviewer hv gone thru. Some are downright rude.
Seems as though they turn down people just for the fun of it. Take the money for the interview 1st, then turn u away. Then they even hv the gall to suggest that you come back again to try for a visa, which basically means, pay the fees once more and come to get another round of hostile firing.

The average american wont/can't believe all that is happening at their embassies, but it really is.

I got mine and for my family (for 10 years) last year without too many questions except those basic ones ie the reason and for how long, with whom, where you'd stay, etc.

The interview was over within minutes. :)

They just pick at random who needs an interview. Mine was given without one. Maybe not so lucky next time.

But I dont see why your colleague would freeze at that question unless she had thought of getting a job there.

I would have answered: "Why should I when I have a good job here? My employer is sending me for training so that I can continue with my good performance. Besides, my family and my life is here in Malaysia."

They normally pose these questions to singles, I think but don't be surprised. My mother was asked many years ago when she applied to visit Britain many years ago. Luckily my mother was spunky enough to say "what has your country to offer me that I cannot have here?" So it's not only the Americans. When I had to pass through England on my way to Scotland a few years go, the immigration officer at the airport was just so b*tchy!

When i was in the states many many years ago after coming out from the immigration there was this guy walking around duno if he was police or immigration. He asked me where I come from. I told him malaysia, any problem? He didnt expect me to ask him back so he said no problem and told me to enjoy my stay in the states.

Happened to my friend's husband: he was dressed in black leather jacket and worn out jeans. One guy put his arm around him and started asking question. When asked what he does back home in Malaysia, my friend's husband said "I'm a lawyer."

The fella immediately removed his hands and wished him a good day.

:D LoL !!! That is a so-American reaction... with lawyers...

Mention the word "lawyer"... and its like someone mentioned the word "contagious" :rolleyes:

Then again, since 9/11 - America and a lot of ( not all ) Americans have hunkered down and gotten pretty paranoid about everything and anything, that will spook them...

I remember the pre- 9/11 days when a blue passport with the eagle was a sign of pride for an American and to an extent, " a passport to get away with almost anything " but not nowadays....

AllUrban - you're gonna like this: Met some Americans filling out their immigration cards at the airport in Dubai and asked them where they're from... this was the reaction (rather nervously! :p ) "From Canada... :eek: why???"

Aside from that story, if you guys go to the US Embassy - whatever you do, don't loiter near the US Marine watch post on the inside near the Visa office... (or block their view of the main gates)... unless you wanna experience a US Marine sound-off !!! One ass of a reaction!!! :mad:
