By mistake I mentioned intention to stay in 14days where as my actual intention in only 7days. Idk how I did it, realized after my form submission.

Now I cannot edit it :(
is it fine if I tell my actual intention at the time of interview ?
How serious is this?

My US b1/b2 applications rejected twice in 10 days under sections 214 [ b] inspite of its genuine

Good morning .

my 2nd visa appointment is at Kolkata on 2nd August 2018 . My interview went along well today as i was asked the following questions: me your passport; Shown

2. Which company you are working : US MNC [ company full name ] for their BPO office in Bhopal , India

.3. What is the company's business : spend management , _____ solutions and ______ management
4. What is your designation : Operations Manager
5. What type of training is scheduled and what is the topic and purpose : Analytical tools and solutions [ I briefed her about all the solutions and tools ]

6. Have you been to any other country earlier , when and for how many days : Yes UK, in ____

She said that you just joined this company recently in JUNE so how the company is calling you for three weeks training ( Is this specifically for you or they have a practice of calling all the new employees )..

So here there was doubt of intent as was in first interview in Delhi .

Like in Delhi , I tried here also to show hard copies of all my documents i.e. offer letter, mails from my Employer , my proof of income and property, my previous company letter of experience and Form 16, but already she made up her mind . She said that though you have a job but you are not qualifying .

Again the lady consular gave me letter of 214 ( b) stating , that you have just joined recently in June and how they can call you for three weeks training there, so they doubt the intent .

So please advice now what to do next as I have tried my best and did well in the interview too but their criterion for qualification for a new employee in a MNC is complex and its hard for them to believe that the company is calling this new employee for training .

Instead If I would have applied for normal tourist visa for sight seeing etc, ,they would have easily passed me as they are doing for most of the applications who visit USA just as a tourist for sight seeing . Or should I have applied for only B1 visa or only B2 visa or only H3 visa

Sir, we have been discussing over webex/mails. Since it is time consuming we cannot risk delay.

And then the golden words…”it’s okay your VISA IS APPROVED”.

Left with a big smile. Thank you sir, have a good day :)

** prepare well be confident.
** focus on the question. Do not keep speaking.
** dress well
** carry documents [in case needed]

Although my experience was just 1yr and 2 months but got approved, it all depends on how well you answer and sometimes on the company too. Mine is one of the top companies of US so that was a plus point.
