The personal interview is one of the most crucial steps in getting a UK visa, if not the most crucial. Attending an interview for UK visa is mandatory for Tier 4 student visa applicants, while the Home Office reserves the right to interview all other visa applicants.

If called for an interview then answering the UK visa interview questions accurately is an opportunity for you to convince the immigration officer that your intentions for visiting/migrating to the UK are sincere, and everything you have stated in your application is indeed true and correct.

While this may be seen as a great opportunity to overcome the potential shortcomings of your applications for many, it may also be seen as a big hurdle for many others. This is because people are generally afraid of sitting for interviews, be it for a job opportunity, a college admission, or even for a visa application process.
