Visiting USA for tourism and to meet my sister and brother in law. Started planning early by reading every line relevant to www.immihelp.com
3 months before the interview. Filled Up Form D160 very carefully and 100% accurately and took a print out of the form before submitting. Downloaded the list of mandatory documents and other supporting documents from www.immihelp.com
. Sent the list of sponsorship documents to my brother in law to prepare and send it by post after notarizing the same. Organized supporting documents (all originals) into the following categories: 1. Mandatory documents 2. Sponsorship Documents 3. Properties( deeds & pictures), Investments and Bank Statements, Professional Documents like practicing license etc. Income Tax Returns 3 yrs, Pan card etc. 4. Family Documents like Family tree, Photographs with family members. If they have visited USA then their visa etc. 5. Business Documents like MoA, AoA, IT returns, Auditor's Report, . Covering letter to the Consulate, Personal Affidavit and CA's certificate of net worth. You never know what the VO may ask you to show so it is better to be prepared thoroughly. All the questions asked by the VO is to confirm basically 2 things. i. your non-immigant intent and 2. whether you or the person sponsoring you will be able to take care of your expenses in USA.
