Thankfully on the day of my interview the Belfast office seemed to be pretty quiet. When I arrived they called me up, took my documents and checked them only to inform me that I had forgot to bring my visa photograph!
Even though I checked my documents 100 times you always forget something, luckily the consulate allowed me to go after my interview get the photo done and return it to security.
On my second call up to the glass window I had my finger prints taken on both hands and was told to take a seat and wait to be called for interview.
15 mins passed and I was called "Miss McGinley interview booth please". I did not know what to expect, I imagined the interview to be much like an interrogation session. To my disbelief I was greeted by a friendly american lady who went through my details asked about my course then asked if I was excited about my placement!
Fingerprints re-scanned and that was the process finished!
All that dread for nothing the hardest thing was getting through security and taking off every piece of jewellery I own!
