The visa is a document that grants you permission to enter a country for a specified time frame for a specific reason. An applicant must convince the visa officer that he/she has "a permanent residence in India which he/she has no intention of abandoning." Each case is different, and what might serve as compelling evidence in one case may not work in another. Examples of circumstances, which applicants have presented as proof of return, include: a good job, significant property or financial holdings, family, school enrollment, a good social standing. That is fine, but one should not be surprised or angry if the officers are unable to review all the documents that are carried. Because officers are often pressed for time, they may not be able to look at many or even any documents. Also, officers are aware that documents may be counterfeited or altered, so they may be wary of accepting them. Therefore, one should also be prepared to explain (quickly) one's situation orally or to answer any questions by the interviewing officer.
