Applying for the business visa
Coleman：What special skills do you have?
Ray：I have had four American English teachers. I took part in a cultural exchange with many of them.Here are their references about my English and business skills.
Coleman：I see,such references will help your chances to get the visa. To double check,I must ask you if you have a criminal record.Have you ever been convicted of a crime in China?
Ray：I am glad to say I have never broken the law. In addition,I have been studying the laws of the United States so that there will be no problem when I go there.I have been and always will be an honest,law,abiding man.
Coleman：Are you aware many Chinese travel to the USA on temporary visas,then immigrate after that?Do you promise not to do that?
Ray：I can assure you I would never leave my family. As you can see from my application I have verification from my host company that they will be responsible for seeing that I return to China within two years.
Coleman：Please sign this form saying you have not lied during the interview today or on your application. The truth is important to us.
Ray：Ditto,the truth is important to me too. It would be my pleasure to sign the form.
Coleman：Do you have any questions for us?
Ray：Of course,thank you. Can you tell me anything else I can do to prepare myself to go abroad?
Coleman：Your best bet is to start reading an American News Paper,Try to get a newspaper that is published near you destination. Baltimore,Maryland has a paper famous called the Baltimore Sun.Start reading it.
Ray：Also,sir,how long will it take you to make your decision on my visa?
Coleman：It will take about two to three weeks. We will call you with an answer.
Ray：Thank you very much,sir. You have been more than helpful.
Coleman：Your welcome,Mr. Lee.But I am not promising anything.
