I am male, planning to wear light colored formal shirt, plain black jeans and black Nike shoes for visa interview. Is that appropriate? Is blazer a must for interview? About to buy formal shoes. Please let me know if not needed as it would be one time use only.

    Please go formal. Like suit and tie. You absolutely cannot go wrong in it. It's just for a few hours and you're good.

      This does not even matter.
      If this question is for India, let me tell, most of these centers are congested, stinky and uncomfortable. A t shirt and maybe a plain Jean works best. Just don't look out of ordinary.
      No one is going to accept/reject a Visa based on your dress.
      Have had multiple stampings just. Always a t-jean.
      My opinion is that formals are not built for general Indian weather conditions.

      Couldn't agree more with Beepbopyip. Weather in Chennai is too sunny and humid.

    I do NOT recommend wearing Nike shoes. It’s be better to go barefoot if those are the only shoes you have.

    Thanks guys. Looks like I'll go with plain light color shirt tucked in, plain black jeans and formal shoes. Wearing a blazer in Chennai, won't be suitable to weather conditions.

    If any more suggestions, please keep them coming.

      you need to wear a tie. Thats very much needed. A cross tie would be good! Dont forget.

    Wear something simple, just don’t look like a hobo. It puts everybody off. Imagine the consular officer who will be put off and then reject the visas of the people after you lol

    What you speak and what you wrote on your DS form matters more than your dressing. Just saying..
