I am eritrean 25, I was studying in PH for 3 years (haven't finished my course) and I've paused my studies for a year to come to ethiopia and attend my uncle's wedding. While staying here I've won a poetry competition and it is being published, the owner of the company have sent an invitation letter. I have my mother's cousin who is will to sponsor me (he Will send me a letter). I can not show ties to ethiopia and I've cancelled my student visa for philippines, and the event is on March 311st (which is 14 days from today). Are my chances low, since I cannot show any bank statments, but I have my certificates from my uni.

I need a brief explanation.
Thank you.

Hello Friends

My B2 Visa was rejected in Feb.2018 at the time of renewal. I visited USA on 16th Feb.2017 . I originally plan my stay for 35 days but my boss sent me an email about termination within 15 days. So I stay in US for 6 months and came back. It was drop box option for my visa renewal but they called me for interview.
And when they asked me about my 6 months stay I told I have accumulated leave. And they ask me if I am working now, that also I have not proof that time.

 I have filled wrong information about my work in previous DS160. But now I have filled it properly.

I am again applying for Visa in April . Please give me suggestions for interview.

Both my mom and dad went for the interview. My parents has got two daughters. My sister she has got her graduation in June. And I am in H1b visa but I haven't went back to my home country and stamped on it. My parents has got no any intention to live here they just want to attend the graduation and visit us and then go. We are planning to schedule another visa interview after two month. Can you guys please suggest me what are the changes in answer we should make. Also, my parents said in interview they have only two children. Does the VO keeps this recorded in their system. Otherwise, I was thinking if they can say they have got one son back in home country only and is studying in Grade 8. Please help.

Vo: Why are you going to Us?
Mom: To attend my daughter graduation.

Vo: How many children do you have?
Mom: two

Vo: What is your other daughter doing?
Mom: She is working

Vo: Did she went to study before and then work?
Mom: Yes

Vo: Do you have any other children?
Mom: No but we have my mother-in law and father-in law

Vo: Documents didn't matched and handed 214(b) and said can't issue visa.

Purpose of visa is to visit my sister in US..

They asked only 2 questions to my wife and none for parents..

Who is there is US ? And How long is the trip ?

The entire process from entry to exit was done in 30 min and happy that visa is approved for all 😎

I got my US visa renewed and my wife got her visa interview done and visa also issued. After getting her visa, I submitted my daugther's application in drop box 10 days back. The status says that "Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing...."

I am wondering what is the administrative processing required for my daughter's visa and why it should take so long. Particularly, when I have given my and my wife's visa copies to the VAC

Anyone can help/share their experience, if similar to mine?

My wife : I do business
VO: what business ?
My wife : export basmati rice to usa

Than she keep our passport and give me a paper with some questionnaryies and asked me to send answer by email within 7 days.
I did the mail same day.
In status it shows our visa is in administrative processing.

So I am confused and worried. How much time it may need don’t know. Even we are getting visa or not still not clear.

Can anyone explain me what to do and what the real sceneario is now

I have valid b1 b2 visa with my maiden name.
But i changed my name on passport to married name, hence i have reapplied for the b2 visa.

I have previous travel history on b1 visa to USA.
Now i ami a house wife. My husband's Visa has been approved.

What are the chances and possible question they will ask?
