This is real, but it is very difficult to sign up for an interview at embassies located in other countries: there are almost no free slots, and when they appear, they are disassembled in just minutes.
According to tourists, among the Schengen countries there is a high percentage of approvals at the US embassies in Malta and the Czech Republic. There is also a possibility of successfully obtaining a visa in Serbia: a married man was given a visa in Belgrade, who was refused in Warsaw.
There is a positive experience in Indonesia. For example, they recently approved a visa for a family with three children. Parents are entrepreneurs, visited 14 countries in 5 years.
However, in the chat rooms, you can easily find bounce stories in the same countries. Kirill works as a medical examiner in Moscow, has a wife and child, applied for a visa in Serbia to take a medical exam in the United States. The interview lasted a minute and a half, after the question about the place of work, the diplomat immediately refused without explanation. Lonely people are also often not given visas.
Russians are also trying to get visas in France, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Italy and Poland.
According to reviews, interview slots in Serbia and other popular countries are sorted out instantly. It is almost impossible for a person to enroll without the help of special programs. Therefore, we have to use telegram bots, which not only report the places that have appeared, but also immediately try to book the interview time.
For example, in Uzbekistan, an entry for non-residents opens every last Thursday of the month at 14:00. After 5 minutes there are no empty seats. “If you enter the data yourself, then you need to fill in very quickly, especially the verification code. Because of him, I didn’t have time mostly,” Ekaterina writes on one of the forums. Social networks also report frequent refusals to Russians at the US Embassy located in Tashkent.
In general, people are ready to come for an interview in six months or 8 months and are waiting for a convenient opportunity to reschedule the interview for an early time.
