The items marked by ♣ are taken by me during VISA interview.

My suggestions are as follows :

  1. Sign the I20 and DS forms before the VI.
  2. Snap your VISA photo as per specification – this is really strict measurement.  Try to do it some professional one. For Kolkata guys if you can’t find any one else come to Sector 5 near Webel – you will find US Visa photo studio there. Else every where you will find specialist studio just outside the VISA consulate. But always ask the local shops first. Glue the photo in DS 156 form.
  3. Bring a harmonium folder and arrange your documents inside it systematically.
  4. The affidavit of support should be written in Rs. 20/- court paper.
  5. If you have more than one bank account, try to collect your bank statements in same date.
  6. Keep a black pen with you on the VI day.
  7. Shouldn’t keep any sealed envelop with you. If you have any like transcripts, open it before entering consulate.
