I would like to share my experience as well as to get the feedback from experts about this scenario
I applied for the B1/B2 Renewal with Family - Me, Wife 2 Kids
We already had a visa which expired in 2018
Visited 2 Times in the defined period, and came back,
Interview went very well, he seems very polite
No Question asked except when did we visited last time, - Replied
Then the VO said to my wife that your visa has been approved, however for rest of us they need Administrative Processing,
My Passport and Kids Passports have been returned - with White Slip of 221G,
VO Said to check email,
On the same date they asked for additional questioner over email like travel history previous employment and replied in the next day
Wife Passport collected after 6 Days with Visa 5 Years - M
Status of my Application is Refused as well as kids,
So over the internet there are many discussion about 221-G, which manly means AP
Can anyone share their similar experience

Who Needs a Switzerland Long-Stay Visa?
In case you need to stay in Switzerland for longer than 90 days, you have to apply for a Switzerland long-stay visa. It is also called a national visa. Your reason for long staying in Switzerland could be:
The rules for each filed depends on your residence country. You could learn more about them at the left sidebar of the site.
Although Switzerland is not part of the EU, lots of EU rules apply to it. So, EU members can enter Switzerland visa-free. However, after 90 days, they have to apply for a residence permit and authorization to work.
The nationals of other countries all have to have to apply for a long-stay visa to work or study in Switzerland. Anyone who wants to stay longer than 90 days in Switzerland has to apply for a residence permit. Their nationality does not matter.

Interview Date - August 14th, 2018
Here goes my experience:
VO: Good Morning
Me: Morning Mam
VO:Where you are going?
Me: Detroit, Michigan
VO:Whom you are going to meet?
Me: Told American client names
VO: What is the purpose?
Me: To attend business meetings and workshop. We have got the new big scope, there is going to be huge expansion in the project. Will be discussing the strategies, objectives, processes involved driving continuous improvement.so that alignment can be done for the project deliverables.
VO: Why can't the meetings be online?
Me: Collaborate real time by having face to face discussions. I will be meeting different team members as there are multiple vendors involved. The scope is big as huge expansion in the project is going to happen, new technologies will be added. So in person will need to be there.
VO: Again, she asked why can't it be online?
Me:Told the same answer. Just added this line: The workshop is fruitful when all vendors come together and discuss the objectives
VO: Seems she got pissed off, asked me don't you understand the question. Tell me why you need to go there.
Me: At that point, I felt that my visa will not be approved. As I was taken aback, I paused for 4-5 seconds. I did not know what to answer as she was repeatedly asking the same question again and again and I have already provided the answer to her. After a pause of 4-5 secs, I had given the same answer as above.
VO: Again surprisingly, she asked the same question for the fourth time
Me: I kept my calm. I just told the same answer again and I added that the initial discussions happened over the call. Now the client wants me to part of the business meetings as multiple vendors are involved.
VO: started typing something and was surprised as well. Luckily, she did not repeat that question.
Me: I sticked to my words, maybe I think she was trying to find if I will say anything different from the answers I given when being asked repeatedly the same question. Could be she was judging me or how I handle the pressure. But every time, I gave the same answer or maybe I don't know the right answer for it.
VO: Asked next question, do you know how much is the fare for US and who will pay for it?
Me: I am not sure. I told my employer will take care of it once visa is approved.
VO: But still do you know how much is the fare?
Me: I said approximately 30k for one side.
VO: Why you are the only one going to attend the meetings?
Me: I am representing and leading the offshore team. I am engaged in the project and have deep understanding of the processes involved. With my knowledge and experience I will be able to provide my inputs during the discussion which could lead to betterment of project
Visa extension for my brother - urgent; please help
Hi, My brother is staying here in New York on B1/B2 visa for the past 4 months due to severe financial problems back home and can not return home due to creditor harassment. He likes to extend the stay for another 6 months until things cool down. Can you please advise the reason i can give on the application so that his request for extension is not denied?
Can he file for extension and provide a cover letter himself or do I have to do this on his behalf? Please advice. Thank you.
I visited my wife in Dec. 2013 as a B2 visitor. When I got here we married again here in February this year. Fortunately for us, she got pregnant in January and started feeling weak. So, I have applied for extension to take care of her since she is alone here. Meanwhile, she has petitioned for me for a green card. She is a Permanent resident. How would this affect my chances.
Hope to get your informed advices.
