Dear friends,
I have been rejected twice for US visa this year 1- for a conference (Feb)and another as a tourist(June),I am again applying for tourist visa this December , will it be a problem trying thrice in a year ?
I have done my earlier interviews in different places and again upcoming will be in Thailand , this is because I make appointments coinciding with my meetings.
I owns a travel agent and my yearly turnover is 8M. Is it less or ?
I believe my last rejection was based on my yearly turn over . As soon as I told my company turn over the VO directly said sorry .what could be the reason . I have only mother and 2 years old daughter whom I have to look after back home so there is no point staying in US and also a very good running company where I earn good enough .

Your support is highly appreciated

Best Wishes πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

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?

Hello Sir and Friends,

I need your advice, the monthly salary I mentioned in the DS-160 is different than the actual salary I got in bank account (salar slip). What answer will I give to US consolor if he asked about monthly Salary

Thank you in advance.
