Hi everyone! I'd like to share my experience when my visa got refused and I hope to hear inputs and advice from you after reading my experience.

I have applied last 2013 at Abu Dhabi US embassy. I'm Filipino, male, single, and I was 32 years old back then, employed with reasonable salary, travel history is only in Hongkong and Malaysia, I have a brother who is a US citizen.

VO: purpose of your trip
Me: to visit my brother as I haven't seen him for quite some time

VO: where does your brother live
Me: in _____, California

VO: How did he get into the US
Me: because of his work (just found out recently that he was petitioned by his wife)

VO: sorry your are not eligible for a visa

I realized that maybe the reason I was denied because for sure they have a record about his circumstances that I wasn't aware about.

Now, I'm applying again in a few weeks. Current circumstances now is I have traveled to Italy, France, Spain, Germany and UK aside from the asian countries I have been before. Same company with a bit higher salary now. Still single.

What are the odds of me getting a visa? Will it be okay if the VO ask for the purpose of my trip, I'd answer: To see the golden gate bridge and Yosemite park and tour around California where my brother is (instead of answering just: to visit my brother?) A friend told me, better to empashize your just there as a "tourist" than to emphasize that you will visit your brother.

What are your thoughts?

I plan to travel to the US in July for about 15 days. Plan to visit NY for about 7 days, and spend the remaining time near Detroit at my uncle's (Mama's) place.

I'm planning to go at this time as I won $5000 in a contest which takes care of flights to and from New York and the hotel stay in New York, and this expires soon. Otherwise, I would not have considered this trip.

Should I call this a self sponsored trip? I will be taking care of the costs of the rest of the trip (travel to Detroit and back, food, local travel, tourist attractions etc.)

My profile
Marital status - single
Age - 31
Salary - Rs 4.5 lpa (I'm working at a startup ,and this is a lot lower than my salary 2.5 years back, as I made a career switch. It has recently moved from 3 LPA to 4.5 LPA).
I have approx 4.5 to 5 lakhs in my savings account, a similar amount in shares, and about 10 lakhs in PPF.
Travel history - 3 times to Thailand, 1 time to Cambodia
I live with my parents (who own the flat, and have a share in another flat in Bombay). My dad's a senior citizen and my Mom's reaching there

Wanted some advice as to how I can present my case in the best manner.
1. Should I show my trip as self sponsored, or should I add my uncle as a sponsor?
2. Can I show the contest as a means of sponsorship (perhaps by booking flights and tickets in advance so that it proves a major portion of the trip cost, and shows that I have a return plan)?
3. When's the latest I should schedule my interview by? I plan to travel on the 2nd of July
3. Any other advice you all might have?

Meeting for first time in May in Panama. Want to apply and have B2 interview while in Panama. Impossible for her to get to Caracas for interview due to violence. She was robbed and threatened murder by gun point two weeks ago.

She is an English teacher, makes next to nothing, 35, lives with parents.
I am her sponsor and hope they let me be a part of the Panama interview.

She has July and August off of work and she will be returning to Vz.

I do not have capacity for her and am not ready to commit to marriage. She will be on return plane home.
Any help or advice appreciated...Thx
