Port of entry issues – We all know that the US consulate issues a visa after an interview in India. But, do you know that there will be another ‘interview’ in the port of entry, after landing in USA? This interview is important and much more critical than the one in India. While the ‘visa’ stamped here is only a “permission to enter US”, the actual stamping in the port of entry within US is the actual and official authorization to enter and study in the USA. Based on the answers and response of students, they could be allowed or denied entry. So, please make sure that when you are getting prepared for the visa interview here, be aware that there is another interview round in USA.
