Hi Guys,

My B1/B2 visa got rejected and I want to apply it for 2nd time, I want to go for holidays with my wife and son because my son is very fond of Disney World and after rejection he is very upset.

Hi guys,

This website has helped me a lot in preparing for my interview. At first I was skeptical of getting my visa because my duration of visit was longer and many people had the opinion that for such a long duration I wont get a visa. Let me share my experience.

VO: Hi, How are you?
Me: Im good, How are you? (with a smile)

VO: Can you hand me your passport.
Me: Sure.

VO: What is the purpose of your visit?
Me: Requirement analysis and design discussions on my company's product.

VO: and that is for ----- company?
Me: Yes.

VO: What is the duration of visit?
Me: ---- date to ----- date, which sums up to 10 weeks.

VO: What is your designation?
Me: Software engineer.

VO: Salary in lakhs per annum?
Me: --- LPA.

VO: Place you are visiting?
Me: <City>,<State>

VO: Isn't 10 weeks a lot of time for design discussions?
Me: Yes but I have ...... (gave a brief description of my schedule)

VO: Are you married?
Me: No, Im engaged.
VO: Oh, Congratulations.
Me: Thanks.

VO: Ok, your visa is approved. thank you.
Me: Thank you.

In the complete interview,
1. I had a smile on my face.
2. I was confident, not over confident.
3. I was dressed in formals. Had my company ID hanging from my neck.
4. I had nothing to hide, so it showed.
5. I wasn't overly rehearsed, so I didn't respond like a parrot. It was more of a conversation.
6. I knew I was coming back and made sure the VO knew the same.
7. For longer duration make sure you have a proper schedule.

Hello guys,
this forum had helped me so now its my time to post my Experience.

My Profile is a 23 yr old male with just 1.3 years of experience ( Total ) and i needed to travel to New York for 6 Weeks and also i had travelled to Middle east last year on vacation.

Top tips : -
Experience matters
Duration of stay matters
Profile matters
Looks matter

But Most of ALL - the confidence with which you speak and handle yourself in those 2-3 minutes of the interview it what matters the most .

If you talk confidently and have nothing to hide you are sure to get the Visa.

Questions asked : -

Purpose of visit ?
- Conduct meeting with key stakeholders within my company

Which Company ?
- Tell your companys name .

How much experience ?
- 1yrs 3 months

Why are you chosen ?
- This is the golden Question get this right and you are sorted , i proceeded to explain how i have worked on all the functions needed to make the project a success this making me the perfect candidate for the same.

How long ?
- 6 Weeks

VO - 6 WEEKS thats a really long time !!! what is the reason for this ?
- Explained why it was needed ( be ready for this if your stay is longer than 3 weeks.

Is the project based in India ?
- Never say No to this . Tell them that the project is based out of india.

And then she says Your visa is approved enjoy ur travel.
Thanked her for her time and left.

Moral is no matter what people say if the reason for your travel is accurate and you do not have anything to hide or lie about you will get the visa.

Do not byheart answers talk as if you know the project or training or conference like the back of your hand.

I had my B1 interview yesterday and i must say i must thank my stars. There was the combination of confidence and uncertainty on what was going to happen but thankfully i didn't sway from a positive mental outlook and it helped.

My B1 interview was just 5-6 standard questions ( why are you travelling , whom do you work for , who is your client, whats your salary , how long are you going to stay - typing typing - "alright Sir , your Visa is approved . Have a nice stay" .

Boom . None of my documents were seen by the VO . What surprised me was the lady ahead of me had a reject history ( i wasn't eavesdropping , but common , everyone is audible ) and the VO was drilling her with many questions but finally approved her.

So here is the thing guys , as many of us have already posted here , one should be confident , should have rehearsed the answers , go well dressed and well groomed and be patient . Rest is not in your hands and that is the truth.

All the best to everyone reading this post !
