Before your consultation, you will fill out a brief questionnaire (takes 5-10 minutes on average) on your plans and visa history. This contents of this questionnaire give the Argo consultant the baseline information they need for an effective and successful session.

During your consultation, your consultant will ask you questions to learn about your purpose of travel, your qualifications, your home ties, any prior travel history or visa applications.

Then your consultant will identify for you what will be the important factors in your interview, based on your unique situation: what are your highlights you need to focus on, what hurdles might you need to overcome.  And your consultant will give you a strategy for proactively engaging with the visa officer so that you maximize your chances of a speedy visa issuance.
