《签证十谈》之九:天使与魔鬼(签证官)

[日期:2006-03-27] 来源:ChaseDream论坛 作者:美国签证十谈 [字体: ]

签证官的脾气我们无法控制,可签证官的目的,我们要心中明晰。

从众多网友对各位VO的评价中,我们可以清楚看到VO们的个性,问问题的方式是千奇百怪,然而变来变去,只有一定之归,就是要查证你的话是否属实,你是否具备拒签条件。

我们大体可以把VO分成两类,一类是魔鬼型,这类VO往往在网友笔中描写成凶神恶刹,杀手类,态度冷漠,没有耐心,给的时间短,经常打断,甚至恶语相加。另一类是天使型,慈眉善目,耐心友好,给的时间长,认真听,很少打断,允许网友娓娓道来。其实无论是魔鬼还是天使,他们都是带着任务和责任,要认真完成他们的工作,只是因为个性与习惯等造成的完成工作的方式不同,哪一种都有陷阱,我们要做到心中有数,不掉入陷阱。

魔鬼是通过态度冷漠以及经常打断给你造成压力,把事先安排好的答案不能按计划说出,从而造成慌乱,乱中出错,说些不该说的话。面对恶魔,我们首先要不卑不抗,使自己的答案尽量简短,尽可能在他打断前切入正题。然而在魔鬼恶语相加的时候,需要特别注意,这是个他用来判断你反映的大陷阱。个性谦逊是中国人的传统美德,特别是面对比自己地位高的人,在面对这个决定自己命运的老外面前,这个传统美德立刻产生了深刻影响,变成了逆来顺受,虽然心中骂上一万次,脸上却强忍着。这个表现给VO留下完全错误的判定,这个人肯定在说谎,要不然怎么我指责他在说谎,他怎么没什么反映呢?一个拒签的大章就盖了下去。这样的错误发生得太多了,而很多人即使知道,也很难改变,说话温柔体贴,即使被侮辱也和颜悦色,个性谦逊变成了一个最难改变的签证错误。面对采取“魔鬼”方式的签证官,我们在被指责完全属于推测的怀疑说谎时,一定要表达出自己的不满,据理力争,证明自己的诚实可信。这里也强调一下,表达不满绝对不是争吵,或者侮辱对方。

天使们采取的策略是让你充分放松,透彻表达你的想法,而他有充足的时间察言观色,捕捉你言语中的漏洞。这时候,我们一定要清楚,态度好不等于给你签证,该说的要说,不该说的也不要一时兴起,说个没完。你的无心之语很可能变成他拒你的证据。

Me: Good morning, sir.  Here is my business card.  Nice to meet you.
Vo: It’s OK. (把我的名片粗暴推开。他刚据了2个人,杀气很盛)(看来是遇上恶魔了。)
Vo: So, how long have you been working for xxx?
Me: About 3 years.

Vo: How much is your monthly salary?
Me: It’s about RMB XX,XXX.  Would you like to see my monthly payroll and income statement issue by the firm?

Vo: No.  How much do you spend every month?
Me: Approximately RMB 2,000.

Vo: I cannot believe it!  You never go shopping? (sneering) (开始嘲笑,挑衅,肆意表现自己的情绪)
Me: Well, I live with my parents, and most of my living expenses such as meals and transportations are covered by the company expense. (这个是真的,我自己一直记帐,每个月个人花销也就在2000到2500,其他的费用公司几乎都cover了,电话费也是公司付的呀) (piscean在被别人以如此恶劣态度第一次指责说谎时,虽然在为自己辩护,可是看起来表现很温柔。)

Vo: I personally know quite a few consultants in China, and they don’t spend that little. (继续sneering) (签证官显然对piscean的表现不太满意,对她的话真假不太确认,继续冷嘲热讽。)

Vo: Have you brought the receipts of your tax payment? (想换个角度来检验她收入问题有没说谎)
Me: Sorry, I haven't. (我心都凉了,我以为只要带了公司的工资单和收入证明就可以,没有顾税单这一茬) (显然资料准备不完整,在这个时候,又让VO再一次失望,增加了一分疑问。Piscean这里也犯了一个错误,你既然没有税单,还有别的啊,要主动自己说出来,不要等着别人来问。)

Vo: Well, how can I believe that you earn that much?  You’ve just worked for 3 years.  Did you have the banking record, say, for year 2003? )(其实这个VO还不错,提醒piscean出示别的证据。)
Me: I didn’t take it with me as I thought the original payroll and income statement issued by my firm are sufficient for the application. (死马当活马医……心里狂郁闷狂后悔) )(果然被问到的另一份资料也没带)

Vo: (这次冷笑得更厉害了)These do not mean anything to me.  As long as you are in the firm, it’s easy for you to get this kinda certificate. )(再一次通过冷嘲热讽来试探piscean是否说的真话)
Me: XXX is a decent AMERICAN firm, how comes you think it will help me cheat the US Embassy? (我出离愤怒了))(piscean表现不错,终于表现出一个被侮辱说谎的人条件反射地护卫自己的人格尊严。)
Me: (不过我还没晕,开始主动进入另外一个议题)Would you like to see the bank certificate of my father’s savings?  I can also show you the historical records of the stock transactions. )(这个反映也非常好,既给VO下了台阶儿,又终于主动地提供些信息了,把VO往自己准备好的方向引。)

Vo: OK.  Where is the bank record? )(VO显然比较买帐,对piscean上面的反映应该还算满意)
Me: My father put most of him income in the stock market, as he’s been working abroad for six years and his salary was paid in USD. (这也是真的,我有2000到2005年的股市交易清单,今年年初钱被分成几次取出来,存入了银行,和存款证明上的日子是一致的)

Vo: (今天vo爱上了冷笑)His company directly transferred the money to stock market? )(股票市场是大批签证申请人用来解释大块资金入帐的办法,显然签证官们已经对这个解释很敏感了。)
Me:  No, he was paid by cash.  That was before year 1999 when he’s in XXX (国家名).  Later he returned to XXX working as the vice general manager.  Here’s his business card and the income statement issued by the company.

Vo: (指着证券公司打印盖章的明细交易单)In China, you can get this easily in the street. )(继续通过侮辱的方式来试探。)
Me: What? (我差不多要说ridiculous了)Haven't you seen the company stamp?

Vo: Ha, I can make one by myself here in China (我最看不惯他张口闭口China).  I’ve seen faked documents every day… It’s ridiculous (阿呸,他竟然先说了ridiculous))(继续宣泄自己的情绪,试探对方,给对方以压力。)
Me: This IS a REAL one and so is my payroll.  If you do not believe it, go ahead and call my company. )(表现很好,表达出不满,也表现出坦然但定,还提出验证的办法。)
冷场几秒钟,我赶紧接话:I’ve also brought a supporting letter issued by our firm.  It welcomes me back after graduation and I will join the company as an XXX.  I can show you if you’d like to take a look. )(既给VO下台阶儿,也提出自己新的证据,往自己准备还算充足的强项上引。)

Vo: OK. (竟然拿起来,逐字逐句地读,还把老板签名对着灯光看,把公司的水印信纸对着灯光照——显然已经完全不相信我))(这个VO看来还真是老辣,一丝不苟。)
Vo:  Why didn’t you apply for any Chinese business schools?
Me:  说了大段关于unparalleled faculty, world’s leading MBA program之类的废话,然后引出正题:Actually most of the junior consultants at XXX will pursue their MBA degree in the United States, after they’ve worked for XXX for 3-4 years.  Upon graduation, they will rejoin the company as XXX and will receive global pay.  I'm just following the common career path at top consulting firms. )(回答不错,自己往归国计划上引,特别是举例自己身边的人。)

Vo: Did you apply for any other schools? )(看来对上面回答比较满意,没再追问,提出了新的方向。)
Me: Yes, XX and XX.

Vo: Why don’t you go to XX? (真不知道他是不是那个学校毕业的?)
Me: blahblahblah. (感觉他也不是真想知道)

Vo: Show me your transcript。
Me: (我终于带了他要的东东!!!)Here you are.
Vo: (仔细看每一科成绩。这个我倒不怕,正本成绩单,而且很不错)OK
Me: blahblah
Vo: (sneering) The more you talk, the less chance you will have to get the visa. )(上面的问题,都没有发现可疑处。这里的反映已经表现出他已经有些想给piscean签证了,只是这个人脾气实在说不出什么好听话。)
Me: (怒,给脸不要脸)Sorry, I will shut up.
突然,他拿着我的I-20,DS表和公司的supporting letter走开了。大约离开了5分钟,然后回来坐下,也不说话,狂打字。我有个感觉他要给我visa了。
约莫过了烙一张大饼的时间,他抬起头来。
Vo: Actually it is very close for me to refuse your application, coz I don't believe you only spend RMB 2000 monthly. (我的心拔凉拔凉的……想破口大骂)However, I’m still going to issue you the visa this time. (大喘气,sh*t! 我火的了。))
Vo: Coz you are a very bright and capable young professional. You have a decent job and speak really good English (是不是拿俺跟前面的探亲大爷比?)I believe you will be truly successful no matter in China or in the U.S., and I believe you will return to China after your graduation. (现在开始believe了,晚了!我不会原谅你的)So I wish you a brilliant future and enjoy your stay in the US!  Please go and wait for your visa.  Oh, actually, as the system was down, you can pick your visa this afternoon at around 2:30. )(这个VO其实还是有可爱的一面,很坦率,把自己整个判断过程和盘推出。)
Me: Thank you, sir.  Have a nice day!
