Friends, We had applied for my Mother-in-Law's B2 tourist/visitor visa. I'm on H1 since 6 years last visited India in 2011.
My wife is home maker on H4 visa staying with me. We have validate visa status till 2017. Following questions were asked to my mother-in-law:

VO: Asked passport
MIL: provided.

VO: Is any relatives staying in US?
MIL: Yes, My son-in-law (SIL) and daughter.

VO: What does your SIL Do?
MIL: Working in xxxx as xxxx

VO: what does your daughter do?
MIL: She is Homemaker.

VO: Asked for my income docs.
MIL: Gave all docs. (tax, paystubs, employment letter)

VO: why is your husband not going with you?
MIL: He is working at xxxx and is not able to make it visit with me.

VO: How long you indent to stay?
MIL: 3-4 months

VO: Do you have any other child?
MIL: Yes, I've yonger daughter. She is studying.

VO: We cannot provide you visa based on certain law and here is the document for the same - which was standard 214a refusal statement.

There was on discrepancy in the I134 document and invitation letters I had mentioned that I shall pay for her travel expenses. But in the D160 it was mentioned that they are going to pay for the same. Anyhow, this question wasn't raised and I134 wasn't reviewed. She carried my Father-in-laws I.T return and other financial docs but there were not asked/assessed.

I'm planning to reapply for her. Have got following questions:
1) Should I have my Father in law also apply along with my Mother in Law?
2) How sooner/later should I apply? (can be done in couple of weeks period?)
3) My wife is pregnant, so we declare that as ONE of the reason to visit besides tourism and socializing?
4) Any other suggestions, tips, advise are most welcome.

Kindly respond to me only.

I want to share my grandfather's Visa (B2) Interview that was held in U.S Embassy New Delhi on 03/14. He applied for the Visa 3rd time after being refused twice with 214(b).

This time we were well prepared & I personally reached out to my State's Senator prior to my grandfather's interview & Senator assured me that he gonna reach out to the embassy & gonna send an inquiry on my behalf, which they did. But his office clearly informed me that this inquiry will not have any influence on Embassy officials decision.

So anyways my grandfather went for an interview on time & it went like this

GF: Good Morning Mam
VO : Good morning, how are you?

Since we selected the interview preference to be in Punjab/Hindi, he candidly said "Mam I don'y know English, I will appreciate if you ask me question in Punjabi/Hindi"

So VO did ask him question in Punjabi

VO: Why you want to go to U.S?
GF: To meet my grandson & explore U.S.
VO: Where does your GS live?
GF: XYZ State
VO: What he does?
GF: Engineer in XYZ company
VO: He live alone there?
GF: Anserwed
VO: How often they visit India?
GF: every year or so
VO: Who is paying for your trip
GF: myself
VO: What do you do ?
GF: Retired from army & Bank, I'm farmer now
VO: How long you gonna stay there?
GF: one month
VO: Sir, Your Visa has approved, you can go now..
GF: Thank you Mam

No documents being seen. My grandfather told me that just be straight forward & tell them the truth, be confident.

Good Luck to all..!

I'm a Filipina. My husband (domestic partner/we're not married), is a US Citizen. He was an active US Airforce from 2000-2006 and reserve until 2008. Now, he's working in the US Embassy Manila. We just registered our son to a US Citizen last month. We are planning to have a short trip in the US, in CA to be specific. I would like to give my son a chance to meet his dad's family and spend his 7th birthday there as I wasn't there when he had his 6th. I want to give him the best birthday of his childhood. Bring him to Universal Studios, Disney California Adventure Park and others.. His will be sponsoring me for the tickets and other expenses will be shouldered with his family. I'm currently working here in Dubai.

As for my ties, I may not have all the material things that they maybe looking for. Though we have a house and a Toyota Hilux registered to my husband. My immediate family is in the Philippines. My father is turning 84, and currently suffering from Alzheimer's disease. As soon as I'm done with my 2-years contract here in Dubai, I will be moving back to Manila to be with my dad.

Is there any chance for me to get approved for a B2 US Visa?

Thank you.

Hi All,
I have been visiting US since 2009 with H1 on work assignments from my employer and returning back once i have my assignment completed. Recently after April 2012 I have reached us in first week of January 2014 along with my wife (H4). I have got my second extension filed and approved. I am planning to apply B2 Visa for my inlaws now (By Mid or End of March 2014) by sponsoring them. I read in a online forum that if we apply for B2 after 2 months of H1 visa holders arrival in US B2 Visa might not be approved. Please suggest if there is any time limit to apply/sponsor B2 visa by H1 visa holder after arriving in US.

My younger sister and me applied for b2 visa this march 2014 under sponsorship basis. My experience was wonderful in getting b2 visa for ten years. I have understood one thing that the applicant personally has to be pro with all the details of ds-160 and sponsorship documents. My aunt (fathers sister) who is a citizen of USA sponsored us for b2 visa. I am a dental surgeon and my sister is a student of physiotherapy. I was having my bankstatement, employment letter, i-t returns and my sister was having bonafide certificate and all her marksheets till date alongwith sponsorship documents, NOC from parents, Property Papers of my parents. Our OFC and interview with the consulate were on 6th and 7th march respectively and were in separate slots. Following were the questions asked to both of us:

VO: MADAM YOUR VISA IN APPROVED *GOLDEN WORDS* :))))))))))))))))))))))))))

No Documents were asked except sponsorship documents.

Thank You to immihelp.com. This is the best website to find all the details before the application if any visa. Thank U

I am on a H1 visa in the US and would like to bring my parents over. Our visas went for renewal in June 2013 (regular process) and we just received the extension till June 2014. Which means I will have to file for extension by sometime in May 2014 again. Meanwhile I would like my parents to come and visit us. Can I do that? Can my parents apply for their visas considering that mine will go for extension yet again in May this year. If they can, will they be eligible for getting B2 visas beyond June 2014 or will our validity status affect their B2 application.

Kindly help or direct me to the right forum.

I 'd applied for my mother's visitor visa and she received it in very first attempt.I want to thank immihelp and peace99 for all the support and guidance.As per the advice on immihelp I showed my brother as the sponsor and it worked.

My mother had selected Gujarati as the language of the interview but she was provided with a Marathi interpreter.It was strange, but I guess it was because in the DS-160 she'd put Hindi ,Marathi and Gujarati as the languages known to her.Questions were asked in Marathi but she replied in Gujarati.She was asked following questions

Vo - Where do you stay?
Mom - In xxx with my son and his family.

Vo- Why do you want to visit USA?
Mom - For tourism and to meet my daughter and SIL

V0- What does your Son- in -law do?
Mom- Works for xxxx as xxxxxx

Vo- Does you daughter work in USA?
Mom- No, she's a housewife as she is on H4 visa

Vo- Who will bear the cost of your USA trip?
Mom - My son who stays with me will bear all the cost.

Vo- Where does your son work?
Mom- He works with XXXX as xx.

And then Vo said your visa is done and you'll receive your passport in 3 days.

Vo asked for my husband's visa petition, other than that no other docs were checked.My mother was carrying all the documents as mentioned in this forum.We didn't send any sponsorship documents from here as my brother was sponsoring from India.

Thanks again to immihelp.
