B1 Visa approved in the 2nd attempt at hyderabad
Hi All,

I have applied for Visa in Aug 2018 but it was rejected and applied again in oct2019 and got approved.

Visa Experience in 1st attempt:
VO: Why are you going to CA?
Me: I have to attend training ......(there was some gap while telling due to nervous and the VO made her eyes big and looked me) on the new technology which is going to implement in our company

VO: Whats your salary?
Me: XXXX/month

VO: Experience?
Me: 6Yrs

VO: How long you are going to visit?
Me: 2 weeks

VO: Sorry we cant approve your visa this time

REJECTED.

----------------------------
i Have changed my company in Apr2019 and client requested to keep B1 visa ready. So applied for the second time and attended the interview on 22/Oct/2019 and it got approved this time

VO: So, your are from XXXX company
Me: Yes Mam

VO: Whats ur designation
Me: Im a programmer analyst

VO: How long you are going to stay
Me: For 2 Weeks

VO: Why are you going?
Me: (in bit of nervous, i said) Im going to attend the B1 meetings (then VO said you are already going on B1 visa) sorry mam, Im going to attend the Business meetings

VO: What kind of meeting?
Me: Our customer is going to have new HR system on to the current HR application and we will be discussing the solution approach and propose the plan in the business meetings?

VO: Why you want to be there?
Me: Users will be coming from all over the regions and it goes in PST timezone and they need my presence

VO: why u want to integrate HR application
Me: (I didnt understand the question, so i have asked Can you please repeat it again)
we are going to New modules like self service of emp and manager into the existing one

VO: Who is ur customer
Me; XXXX company

VO; Whats ur salary?
Me: XXXX L /annum

VO: whats ur salary in 2018 (as i have attended visa interview in 2018)
Me: (monthly salary i said in annual) 50k/annum sorry mam its 50k/month

VO: how long you are working with this company
Me: almost 7 months

after few seconds i said im supporting same customer from 4 years. i just changed the company 7months back

here are the platinum words from VO

OK.. Your Visa is approved.

Note: as i made few mistakes while telling the salary and purpose of visit. VO would have thought it was due to nervous.
it depends on the understanding of the VO. May be if some other VO would be there she/he would have rejected- i think so.
i thought it would reject this time also as i said few mistakes, but luckily it got approved.

just be confident with your answers and tell what you have filled in your ds160
Dont feel it as interview. Think like some one is asking why ur going/how long and all those and answer casually.

Thanks
