How to answer the stay back question?

  • Hi, I want to study CS in US and then stay behind so I can pay off my education loan.
    So what do I say to convince my VISA interviewer that I don't intend to stay back?

  • To do this, show the interviewer you have strong roots in your country -
    Having a lot of your family in India, rather than in the US is one factor you can use
    Perhaps there's a family business you know you have to attend to after you graduate
    If you have a job offer, or you own property in your country, you can talk about that

    In the end, the decision of the VISA officer will be subjective to your case, so prepare accordingly

    Good luck with your interview

  • You can also make your answer personal
    You can talk about wanting to return and live with your parents so you can look after them
