I'm a housewife who is travelling alone to meet my cousin in the U.S.. My husband has a work permit, so he doesn't need a visa. So I was doubtful if I will get a visa, as I would be telling them that I'm travelling alone and also that I'm a housewife with no properties in my name. But I did travel earlier to Europe, and also have a UK visa that I have not travelled on , and now it its expired.
I prepared well for the interview, with all my cousins docu and papers.
Me: hello (passport already taken)
VO: hi, why do you want to go to the U.S.?
Me: to visit my cousin and his family, and to also see the places around NJ.
VO: what do you do?
Me: I am a housewife
VO: how long would you stay there?
Me: 3 weeks..tops!
VO: you travelling alone?
Me : yes, bcz my husband is busy this year with work and cannot take a leave for vacation.
VO: where does your husband work?
Me: NCR, hyd
VO: what does your cousin do?
Me: he is a sr.softwear Engineer at Bloomberg
VO: visa approved!
None of my documents were seen apart from my passport. Maybe me travelling to Europe helped my case. Or sheer luck. My tips...just be confident and cool and collected. Do not hesitate while answering anything. Speak what all you prepared. Don't give more information than requested, you may be digging your own grave if you do.
All the best
