Today fetch mom and 4th Kor to the US Embassy for their VISA application. Both of them went in at about 10.30 am and I waited outside the embassy for almost 2 1/2 hours. Then saw mom walking out and I ask her how is it? I have sense something is not right about her cos she came out with a moody face. Then she told me her application is rejected and 4th Kor's application is successful.
To my surprise I ask her why? What did they ask her and she told me the documents is incomplete. I can't understand to pay for the air tickets is so expensive and before we can go ahead with our travel plans we got to fork out USD100 for the processing fee. So TROUBLESOME and now she got to wait for next to apply her VISA again.
While driving back she kept quiet through out the whole journey back home and her face expression is full with dissapoinment. She herself also couldn't believe it and before she go, she is full with confident that she will get it. In the car I ask her what they asked?
And she told me ......
Interviewer : Who sponsor your trip to US?
Mom : Self finance
Interviewer : How much is your income per month?
Mom : About RM4,000
Interviewer : What do you do and where you get the income ?
Mom : My two daughthers give me RM1,000 per month each and some from the house rent I rented out.
Interviewer : Where is both your daughters working and work as a what? Any letter or supporting documents from them ?
Mom : Errrr... nope. I don't know what is my daugthers company name.
Interviewer : Any supporting documents for the house?
Mom : I only brought one which is under my name. The rest are under my husband's name.
Interviewer : Sorry, madam your application has been rejected due to incomplete documents.
Mom : Can I pass all the document to you tomorrow?
Interviewer : Sorry, madam we can't do that. Please try again next year.
Imagine just like that and she got rejected. 4th Kor told me that mom's tears nearly drop out when they rejected her. She really look forward for this trip. Her worried is that next year she might not be able to go because she got to take care of her grand children. I told her not to worry so much we will managed ourself and we will try again for her next year.
Now I think back it is not easy to go US for holidays. Better take the money for Europe Tour or some where else and I remembered when I went to London few years back, there are no such a strict regulations.
