Hello consular officer,
I have a question regarding H1b visa. I have been living in New York for the last 5 years under J1 visa. I completed my medical specialty and subspecialty. I applied for the 2 year home residency rule and got approved. I also applied for H1b and got approved and got a job in an underserved area. I have to go back home (lebanon) for a family reason. Before coming back to the states, I have to apply for the H1 visa at the US council of Beirut. My issue is I am pregnant, would it possible that my H1b visa be denied because of my pregnancy?

Hi VO, I must commend you for the job you are doing here. Please, I have a wedding I want to attend along side my wife and kid who is a US citizen. I have never been to US before and I never applied for US visa but my wife has been there(US) about two times. My question now is, the interview appointment date I got is four days away from our travel date. Do you think this might affect my chances? Why I asked is so that I can cancel my appointment on time and see if I can still get a closer date. Please, I will like you to enlighten me as I think this is not a specific case question. Thank you.

This is a common misconception we have been trying to clear up--being pregnant, in and of itself, is not a reason to refuse someone's visa application. People usually get into trouble when they aren't honest with us about being pregnant, or about wanting to deliver a baby in the US. I can't comment on your case (or any case) specifically, but there's no harm in being honest with the consular officer when you have your interview. Indeed, most of the harm comes when people choose not to be honest with us.

Visa processing time is usually three days, so you should be fine. If you feel you need an expedited appointment, here are the instructions: http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-niv-expeditedappointment.asp . It doesn't really sound like this would qualify for one, but you're welcome to make your case.

All of this information is available on our website: http://nigeria.usembassy.gov/non-immigrant_visas.html

As for chances--this isn't a lottery (there is a visa lottery, of course, but this isn't it). If you are honest and qualify for the visa under U.S. law, you will get one. It's worth remembering that, in general, this is the section of the law we are adjudicating against:

"Every alien (other than a nonimmigrant described in subparagraph (L) or (V) of section 101(a)(15), and other than a nonimmigrant described in any provision of section 101(a)(15)(H)(i) except subclause (b1) of such section) shall be presumed to be an immigrant until he establishes to the satisfaction of the consular officer, at the time of application for a visa, and the immigration officers, at the time of application for admission, that he is entitled to a nonimmigrant status under section 101(a)(15)." (U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, Section 214(b))

If you're trying to get a tourist visa, that's defined under section 101(a)(15)(B) as: "an alien (other than one coming for the purpose of study or of performing skilled or unskilled labor or as a representative of foreign press, radio, film, or other foreign information media coming to engage in such vocation) having a residence in a foreign country which he has no intention of abandoning and who is visiting the United States temporarily for business or temporarily for pleasure" (U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, Section 101(a)(15)(B))

You can find the law online here: http://www.uscis.gov/laws/immigration-and-nationality-act

There's a reason why we post the law online, and make it accesible to everyone. While I know lots of people don't feel like this is true, we do strive to be as transparent as we can. When someone applies for a tourist visa, we are trying to figure out if:
1--does this person overcome the legally required presumption of intending immigrant built into INA 214(b); and
2--has this person convinced the officer that they qualify for the type of visa they are asking for?

That's it. So, tell the truth. If you qualify, you'll get the visa. If you don't qualify, you won't. If you lie, then you definitely won't.

In general, family visits and tourism are both covered under the same visa class (B1/B2). It sounds like you had an interview and didn't qualify for the visa. If you feel the interviewer was unfair, you are welcome to reapply and it's our policy that a different officer will take a fresh look at the case.

@AbujaNIV,Good morning.I want to ask a question concerning my wife and I that we were refused a visa and no basic reason was told.I assumed the visa refusal was that my wife passport bear her father's name and she used my own surname (husband surname) when we filled form DS160.This happen because we never formalise our marriage union and she has been using the passport to travel several time to UK and not expire yet.We applied for family visit because her brother in America want to do marriage and she was invited to stand as a mother for her brother on the wedding day so we were both invited.Infact when the visa was refused they have to postponed the wedding date again so that we can re-apply.
NOW,my question is this VO,Now that we have formalise our marriage (both registry and Church wedding) if she apply for another Nigeria passport with my surname(Husband Surname),i hope the DS160 form we are going to fill will not contradict our first form DS160 form we filled in our first application. I really need advice on this.Thanks

Good day VO, i really need your advice.
My parents intend to spend their leave in the US, an aunt (my mom's sister) is the one inviting them over. My dad is to accompany my mom. My first question to the house is:
1) does my dad need to fill his own DS160 non immigrant form; as he is going as an a companion.

he didnt fill the DS160 online, because he was listed on my mom's DS160

with the confirmation number from my mom's application online we went on to make to make payment for both of them at GTB and got two reference numbers to book for an interview appointment next week.

opened a single profile using my mom's details, included my dad as well as her companion but we were required to put in a DS160 number, so we used the same number as the one used for my mom.

after choosing a date for interview; this notice showed up on the final confirmation page:
" PLEASE NOTE THAT ONE OR MORE OF THE DS-160 NUMBERS USED TO SCHEDULE THIS APPOINTMENT CAN NOT BE VALIDATED.
INCORRECT DS-160 NUMBERS MAY LEAD TO A DELAY IN BEING PROCESSED."

Please house what should we do?? should my dad go on to fill a DS160 form and should we cancel the old appointment and book a new one? what would be the implication of rescheduling? would we need to make new payments?

Every person applying for a visa must fill out a visa application. Per the rules on the website you applied for your appointment through: "Each applicant - including children - must have their own Form DS-160 visa application." (http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-niv-ds160complete.asp ) If you're having trouble scheduling, there is a help center, available at 01 440 6294 .

One does need a purpose of travel when one applies for a visa. The purpose of travel can be different from what is on the form, but you should be sure explain very clearly why it has changed. As for rescheduling, there is a procedure for requesting expedited appointments online, at http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-niv-expeditedappointment.asp . In general though, we don't consider wedding invitations to qualify for expeditied appointments. Weddings are usually planned months in advance, and our wait time is clearly advertised on the State Department's website, at http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/general/wait-times.html/ .

212(a)(6)(C)(1) findings are for material misrepresentation, and carry a lifetime barr on travelling to the US. If someone has a 6(C)(1) finding, while they are welcome to apply for a non-immigrant visa, there is a multi-step process:

First, one has to convince the officer they qualify for the visa they have applied for, and overcome the legal presumption of being an intending immigrant. (This is often difficult, as they, by virtue of having a 6(C)(1), are known to have misrepresented themselves in the past.) If the officer doesn't believe the applicant qualifies for a visa, the interview ends there.

However, if the officer does find the applicant to qualify for the visa, the applicant can ask the officer to file a waiver request for them, which can come either with or without the officer's recommendation for a waiver. (We don't decide on the granting of waivers - the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) back in the U.S. does.) Then, the ultimate decision on whether or not to temporarily waive the lifetime travel barr is made by DHS.

We can't comment on individual cases. It's always a good idea to tell the truth on the DS-160, and there is a space for "Other Names Used". Many married female applicants put their maiden names there.

Good afternoon, I am new on this forum, but had a bit of oppoturnity to read some comment under the section of 'Give birth in the USA cost and procedure' before the forum crashed.
Please I went for an interview on Tuesday July 15 with my husband and son at Abuja and my reason for wanting to travel to the USA was to give birth , the VO requested if i have any correspondece with any hospital and which state. i showed the VO evidence of part payment of my medical bill to the hospital, th hospital's letter of responsibilty and the mail correspondences i have had with the hospital, the VO gave me a form which stated that further admistrative process need to be conducted and they would revert back to us. someone suggested that I should call the embassy and not wait, please i would like to know if i can go ahead to call and what number i can call, also my due dat is September which makes it difficult for me to just wait and do nothing. i would like to now may fate and know what next of action to take.

Hello Visa officer @abujaniv. Thank you for the good work you're doing here. I will like to ask few questions and it goes thus;

I am a Nigeria citizen starting my masters in Canada in September and i've gotten visa already, I will like to visit my relatives in the US during this coming christmas period, can I apply for US visit visa from Canada or I can only apply in Nigeria?
If I can only apply in Nigeria, can I finish all the process within 2 weeks?

I look forward to reading reply.

Dear v.o, my mum was refused visa today under section 214(b) and I want her to reapply maybe next week and I will like to reapply with her as I have also made a trip out of the country but not to the U.S, please I need your advice is it really advisable? Because my mum said the interviewing officer kept asking who she was travelling with and she said nobody and later he asked again and again

What can one use to show evidence of strong ties as the US interview is only a few minutes. My interview is coming up on the 7th of August and I am 28 years old unemployed. My dad and my 1st cousin that is a US citizen is sponsoring the trip. I recently just concluded my NYSC after studying in the UK?

NB: My cousin is getting married on the 9th of August and we have received the IVs.

What are my chances?
