I'm from India.I want to travel to USA with my sister and my mom this year.I have submitted my application and the interview is scheduled.One of my close relative who is also a US citizen for at least 11 years.Now I have few stuffs which I need help for?

1) How strong is my case? Both of us are students,I m going to complete my education and my sister is studying in her last year.My mom is a housewife. Provided that we have the sufficient funds to travel,plus this trip is entirely sponsored by my relative who is working,has his own house,sufficient funds plus is a law abiding citizen.

2)Will the visa generally be given to a family of women?

3)What are the advantages and disadvantages of taking regional/English interview?

4)Any other visa interview tips that would help us to get a visa?

Thanks in advance

Hi, I was refused together with my wife yesterday in Nigeria and would like to know what the reason could be... Our interview below

V.O: good morning
We: good morning
V.O: purpose of your visit
Me: vacation and honeymoon
V.O: congratulations on your wedding
V.O: where are you going
Me: New York
V.O: what do you do
Me: I'm an IT Manager for XYZ company
V.O: have you traveled before
Me: yes I have
V.O: where
Me: South Africa

Then turns to my wife
V.O: ma'am what do you do
Wife: i'm a businesswoman
V.O: what type of business
Wife: I own a boutique
V.O: have you traveled before
Wife: no
V.O: do you have kids
Wife: no

Then she typed for few seconds with a smile and say I'm sorry I can't issue you visa at this time.

N.B: I'm 31 while my Wife is 30, could that be the reason or because we are yet to have kids? Please I would like to know where we got it wrong because we want to reapply next month so we can go for our honeymoon in July which is when my annual leave will be.

Hello all,
I have applied for b1/b2 visa and my interview is scheduled on 15 may.
My case is as follows-
I am student doing my engineering in computer science and I have completed 3 years. In last year my parents passed away. So all property was transferred to my name. It includes bank balance, bungalow,flat, couple of plots, mutual funds and shares investment.
I am going to meet my cousin and will come to back to India after a month to complete my engineering. What are my chances of getting a visa?? I am sponsoring my own trip.

But how can a VO just reject based on the above questions , please suggest your inputs, what went wrong ? and why was i denied a B2 Visa ?

I have been referring to this site for guidance ever since I have been sponsoring my father's visa for 2 unsuccessful attempts.

My father used to work for a private company for over 18 years and retired. He did not get any pension. Mother is no more. I have been in the US for over 7 years now and I wanted to bring my father to the US so that he can spend some time with us.

He tried once in Mumbai and once in Chennai, both times, he was not given any reason. The second attempt he tried in Kannada without luck. My colleagues suggested me to approach our senator here in the US and send a letter to the consulate in Mumbai. I did that but in the second attempt, I asked my father to tell the VO that senator of Virginia would have sent a recommendation letter in support of my visa. As soon as he showed that, the VO handed him the refusal sheet.

In the meantime, my father's cousin suggested him to meet a visa consultant whom she approached for her visa when she too had a refusal. No harm to give it a try the third time so contacted them and explained them my father's experience. They spoke to my father as well and were of the opinion that there could be some communication problem while answering questions.

They coached him on that and ola! 3rd try success! I guess at times it is better to leave it to experts instead of complicating the situation. If anybody is interested in contacting them, they are Visa Vikings +91-99499-38272 or +91-88852-42557. All the best to everyone who is in a predicament like I was.

 I have been living in Dubai since my childhood. have a USA visit visa since 2012 and have flown there once. I also hold valid Canadian visit visa and my travelling history has been very good across London and Europe. I work in a bank and have a very strong tie economically, socially with Dubai.

Recently my wife applied for US visa and it was denied. I was confident enough that my wife would get it. We both were suppose to travel together for tourism.

So the interview goes like this : -

VO : What is the purpose of the travel
Wife : Tourism
VO : What do you do
Wife : Housewife
VO : Are you travelling with someone
Wife : Yes, with my husband
VO : Does your husband has a visa
Wife : Yes
VO : How long are you married
Wife : 4 months
VO : How long are you in Dubai
Wife : 4 months

And then the lady officer refused the visa under 214b reason which is common. I was pretty shocked when she came out with a white paper. I know how the interviews works and i prepared my wife for it. I trained her for the interview with crisp answer and she followed the same. But still unlucky.

Can anybody suggest what should I do? Should i reapply again thinking that may be a different VO would understand the case and look at it differently.

Goodnite Sir, Madam,

My husband, myself and my kid who is 11 yrs old had a US Visa interview today .... However, we were not given a fair interview... Reasons for unfair interview being the Interviewer did not even take our documents and checked through but we were denied entry to the US reasons being DO NOT have sufficient ties in the country.... Can u help me try to understand this denial when our documents were still in our hands which were supporting information to our Visa application...

Confused Citizen
