Home Country Ties: You will be required to provide proof of your intent to return to your home country.
Strong ties differ from country to country, city to city, individual to individual. Some examples of ties can be a job, a house, a family – or if you weren’t born in the country where you are applying – permission for permanent residency in this country. “Ties” are the various aspects of your life that bind you to your country of residence: your possessions, employment, social and family relationships. Each person’s situation is different, and the consular officers are aware of this diversity. During the visa interview they look at each application individually and consider professional, social, cultural and other factors. In cases of younger applicants who may not have had an opportunity to form many ties, consular officers may look at the applicants specific intentions, family situations and long-range plans and prospects within his or her country of residence. Each case is examined individually and is accorded every consideration under the law.
