I attended my first B1 visa interview on May 1st week and it got rejected. I am an experience designer in a US based product company. I believe it’s because I didn’t explain the purpose of the visit very well.

I have applied for it again and my interview is in 3 days. I got a promotion as a senior associate after completing the DS-160 and scheduling appointments. So, there’s no change in the details I have entered in the new DS-160 except that I’ve made it as an one week trip (It was 2 weeks in the previous application). I am well prepared right now for the interview.

However, I am concerned if they are going to reject right away because the situation hasn’t changed this time as per my DS-160. Should I produce the proof of my promotion and pay hike in the beginning itself to clarify? Or, will it be considered inappropriate and impact the chances of the visa approval negatively?

During filling DS 160 for reapply, previous visa application records to be mentioned in DS 160. What should I write on application?
Question in DS 160: Have you can ever applied US Visa?

As my passport number is changed, can I write it as "NO"?

Please advise me.

Dear Experts, need your expertise......

I attempted my second attempt for B1 Visa on 5/7/19 after rejection of first application on 2/5/19.....
In the interview, last question was ...
VO: Have you ever applied US Visa?
Me: Yes, and denied last time.

After typing........she (VO) said....

As you have reapplied application immediately after first rejection. And no any circumstances is changed since first application. We could not approve visa.

Me: Any particular duration mam, I can reapply?
VO: Listen, you should reapply application once circumstances is changed to the first application.
She advised also not to apply again and again with short span. She advised reaplly once circumstances is changed to the first one.

Please advise me next process.
When I can reapply again? How long should I wait?
How long all previous rejection records thay maintain?
Because one of my friends told me after six months all previous records are deleted from system. Is it true?
