Question Description
How long is average visa interview? Is US visa interview longer than visa interview for other countries? Please tell me an average visa interview duration for US student visa.

The average visa interview time for most of the student is 2-3 minutes. But sometime when the consular have doubt regarding your intentions, they will ask you more questions and try to identify your intention regarding your study plan in USA.

Moreover, it takes more time - sometime of about 25-30 minutes when the consular feel doubt on the genuineness of the document you submitted. They may examine each and every document minutely and may ask you random questions on any matter relating to document. Remember that sometime some students may get success submiting fake documents but more often many students get failed resulting visa refusal and in some cases like presenting fake academic certificates also results for police case.

However, if you are genuine student, if you are genuine student with intention to complete your study abroad in US, and if you have submitted all real and genuine documents, the interview lasts for maximum of 3 minutes. This is because in most of the consulate offices of US, the number of visa applicant during peak season is too high and they have to interview the entire applicant within the certain time frame which forces them to complete each interview as quick as they could.
