Good morning

I need advise because i rejected my Family visit visa yesterday from Dubai - US consulate. Actually me, my wife and 9 month old baby were appeared for interview.


My wife family just went to USA on Legal immigrant visa in Feb 2016 but my wife got married so she was no eligible a that time.

so when we appeared yesterday. everything was going fine but when VO asked questions to my wife like your parents just went 6 months ago etc

then say said "Sorry, we cannot give visa because we are not confirm and don't know if you change your mind and do not confirm"

Please suggest,
1. Do we wait some time or apply again immediately?
2. How much reasonable time to apply again to make the situation normal?

I have applied visitor VISA for my in-laws. Their son is also staying in USA.

First of all, I did a mistake in DS-160 which I realized just before interview. I have gone through so many blogs about this issue. But, solution is fairly simple. Just fill new DS 160 form and inform OFC person , they will generate bar code based on new DS-160 (instead of the one on ustravel docs website).

They took interview in Telugu.

Here are the questions:
VO: Namaskaram
INL: Namskaram

VO: where does your son-in-law work
INL: California, XXXX

VO: Is she your own daughter (she asked same question twice)
INL: Yes

VO: Is she your own son-in-law (she asked same question twice, just to make sure)
INL: Yes

VO: Do you have any other relatives in USA
INL: Yes, my son

VO: Where does he work and which company
INL: Answered

VO: Can you give us your son-in-law passport
INL: they provided scanned copy of passport

She was verifying in the system

VO: Can you give us your daughter passport
INL: they provided scanned copy of passport

VO: What do you do here ??
INL : Answered

VO: Do you own a house here ??
INL : Yes

Finally, your VISA approved.

Hi guys, I'm a 34 year single female with no travel history. Have applied for B2 visa to visit my aunt in the U.S alone. I'm a bit confused as to what to state as the reason for my absence of travel history. The main reason being my mom's medical condition for the last 7-8 years due to which I had to be around her to take care of her and along with my sibling and father. The other reason is also that my parents don't really like travelling a lot due to which we haven't visited my aunt (mom's sister) despite her being in the U.S for more than a decade now. Please guide me if I should just state that my parents and me don't really like travelling hence the absence of travel history or mention about my mom's medical condition or both?! Highly appreciate any help on this! Thanks in advance.

I'm a 20 year old Filipina, obviously single, haven't traveled abroad, college graduate and still not working because I will enter flight school next year, my father is a seafarer (my mom and him will sponsor my trip), I will visit Hawaii and stay at my friend's apartment (us citizen, us navy) for 2 weeks.

Do you think it's a good idea that I will mention my friend or not?

Thanks a lot everybody for sharing your experiences, this website is a great information repository. Below listed her profile and experience

Widow, Not Working, 3 Kids (1 in US, Rest in India), Property in her name and Earns rent, Self-financing the trip

Interview Experience

VO was a lady and since my mother’s interview was in Hindi, she had a translator with her

Q: Why do you want to go to USA
A: For tourism and to meet my elder son's family
Q: Can you show me your son's visa
A: Presented Visa
Q: How long will you stay
A: 1 month
Q: How many kids do you have
A: Answered (My younger brother & his wife are disabled and I told my mother to emphasize on that, she proactively offered to show his disability certificate. VO glanced through it)
Q: Who is going to take care of your affairs
A: My daughter, she lives close to me
Q: Is she married
A: Yes
Your visa is approved

VO smiled and said Bye-Bye, my mother smiled and said Bye-Bye

Suggestions based on personal experiences:
DS160 is your place to highlight the strong ties, they do not really care about any paperwork
Be consistent in the answers with DS160
Don’t be nervous, look them in the eye. They are making a lot of money from this so be confident
Take few seconds to reply
Seriously prepare for the interview, conduct mock interviews with your family
Every question they ask they are trying to understand your country ties & meaningful purpose of the visit. So prepare answers which highlight and supply that info
Don’t volunteer Info, most of the times people volunteer info as a filler when they go blank. So practice mock interviews, it is a must
Best Of Luck
