Apply US Visa, Interview, Guide and Tips US Embassy Singapore
If you haven't apply the US visa, please take a look at this post How to Apply for Business or Tourist US Visa in Singapore?

Some tips and guide that you can follow after you've appointment in the Singapore US Embassy. Here is the guide what to do after you arrive at the US embassy in Singapore.

Guide:

  1. come early at least 30 minutes before.  You need to queue outside before you can enter the embassy for security screening. After the gate on your left there are seats, proceed over there don't go straight to the queue where people are standing.  - waiting time in the morning 7.45am is about 15-30 minutes.
  2. Security screening, you'll need to leave your handphone and bulky items (some handbag and backpack will be considered as a bulky item). Since you can bring your handphone inside, don't forget to bring some books / newspaper with you.
  3. After the screening, Proceed and follow the sign (enter the door and turn to your left)
  4. At the waiting room, pick up your queue number (non-immigrant) from the queue machine. Find a sit and wait for your turn.
  5. You'll be called 3 times. 
    • First is for document submission, 
    • second for finger print
    • Third for interview.
  6. Document submission, you need to have your ds-160 confirmation, appointment confirmation, passport and 1x pass photo . After submission go back to your seat and wait your number to be called for the next step.
  7. Finger print, go with this sequence: left 4 fingers, right 4 fingers and 2 thumbs, he/she will pass you back the verified documents  and passport in a folder, go back to your seat and wait for the interview.
  8. Interview, it will be done in the same room over the counter, pass the folder (the ds-160, appointment letter and passport) back to the interviewer. Counter 1 which looks like small room has a door and chair but no one close that during interview and counter 5 is a standing counter, my point here is basically during the interview everyone in the waiting room can hear you :( so don't speak too loud.
  9. The interview always cover the basic such as your purpose to visit USA, how long you'll be there,etc. it can be short or long depends whether you've credibility. It's always good to bring letter from company that support your business trip, agenda, itinerary, hotel booking although it's not required. For US tourist visa bring your bank account statement and other supporting document.  He/she will immediately tell whether they approve or reject your visa. 


Tips:  

  1. Bring a book / newspaper, for all the 3 steps it takes about 1.5 hour . If you forget don't worry there are TV in the waiting room that showing the steps before interview and some info about living in the U.S.
  2. Always come early and take the earliest slot for appointment, the sitting in the waiting room is limited, a lot of people were standing after 8.30am.
  3. If you forget to take pass photo don't worry, there's a id photo booth inside the waiting room. The only thing you need to worry that it costs $10 for 2x pass photo.
