At a U.S. visa interview, it’s important to be respectful, concise, and to the point. There are certain “stop words” or phrases that should be avoided, as they can be seen as negative or inappropriate. These include:
Words or phrases that indicate dishonesty, such as “lie,” “fraud,” or “fake.”
Words or phrases that suggest you are trying to enter the U.S. for illegal purposes.
Words or phrases that are rude or disrespectful, such as “stupid,” “ridiculous,” or “why do you care?”
Words or phrases that suggest you have no respect for U.S. immigration laws or procedures, such as “just let me in,” or “I don’t have time for this.”
It’s also important to be honest and forthcoming during the interview, and to avoid giving vague or evasive answers.
If you are unsure of the answer to a question, it’s best to simply say so, rather than trying to bluff or guess.
