My R1 (I-797) is approved till 2014. I assumed that my family is entitled for R2 visa. Last month I took my family of 5 and applied R1 for me and R2 for my family. At the interview Visa officer said, "Sir your family does not qualify for this kind of visa at this time but you can re-apply at any time". With this he gave all 6 passports back and with a form 214B.
Now, I want to apply visa for myself alone. I am not sure if I will get visa on R1 basis. Can I apply B1/B2 visa? Also please let me know what are my options in this situation?
Please advise and I appreciate your help.
