      Congrats on getting your visa approved..

      by the way how much funds should we normally show to get the visa interview smoothly ?

      I am from HYD but people advised not to opt for visa interview at HYD consulate, if i scheduled meeting in Chennai will they ask for reasons?

      Thanks in advance..

      if you have more than 1 backlog in 1 semester, can treat it as one because the only way the visa officer will able to find out is by looking at my marksheets date of issue and it tell him nothing about the number of backlogs i had!!
