3. If your giant fabus are found out, na ban be that so choose u this day whom you'l follow
Peace!

U package yourself by reading the thread, visiting the USembasssy site, studying it. The help we offer here is advice and answer to specific questions. We too Aren't agents. Take your time and do your research. All your confusion will be cleared

so true, you nailed it! He'd come off as an intending immigrant to the VO.

Bad advice. If you have a girlfriend in the U.S. and are visiting her then that is fine. People get visas under those conditions all the time. The second I know that you concealed the fact that you have a girlfriend - and yes, we look into your applications and they do at the port of entry as well - I have to believe that you have immigrant intent.

You honestly tell the VO why you are going to the U.S., who you are visiting, and why you decided to. The second I can't figure out why you are actually going to the U.S. I am forced to refuse you.

Don't believe the stories that people tell you about having rehearsed stories and sticking to them, it's just bad advice.

Good morning VO. Thank you for coming here.

We dare not argue with you because this is your area of expertise, but truth is the ratio of getting a visa under the circumstances mentioned in my post is worisome 1:10 since he's never seen the girlfriend in question except through chat, emails and telephone.

Which is why one asks other questions about personal circuumstances/ ties. The interview is viewed widely. For egs now- if that Fine Buhari's son (can't rem his name now) goes to the embassy and says 'I wanna visit my single friend in NY whom I met online. She's a salesgirl at target. But we are really good friends'
Look at the big picture. Will the young man leave all the fine fine Aishas and Saratus to abscond?will he leave his job,perks and other ties? Likely not. These are the factors that would sway a reasonable Man

So is the goal to visit the U.S. legally? Or is the goal to illegally enter the United States no matter what the cost?
One requires you to be honest, and maybe you aren't qualified - you can always reapply when you are eligible.
The other is a crime that can result in you being arrested and possibly banned from the United States with permanent repercussions.

As LadyG has mentioned, we look at the totality of the circumstances. On the surface, visiting your online girlfriend is kind of weak. Concealing information on your application, though, is far worse. I would hate for anyone to get a 5-year ban at the port of entry and have to get back on the plane at their own expense because someone advised them to lie about something that doesn't really matter.

Thank you all for ur comments and advices.

NB: I have my biz am doing here in nigeria which I can't just abandon, and 2ndly I can't marry a foreigner for anything.
Tnx a lot all of you.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 2 by toluhakinsanmi(m): 3:43pm On Oct 15, 2015
Please what are the required documents by embassy when applying for america visit visa, I av d invitation letter from my Broda alredi
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 2 by hommiekr(m): 6:03pm On Oct 15, 2015
@VO I just read ur comment again now and noticed you kept talking abt concealing information. I have no info am concealing. I just came in here to seek for advice and guidelines on how I can visit US legally, spend a few days and return back to my country. So now that you've commented on my post and am wondering why you are already seeing me as an intending immigrant. What I would ask of you now is to tell me what and how an intending visitor to the US should arm and prepare his self while coming to the embassy. But am not desperate to enter the US though, am only going based on tourism and visit. But if its gonna make me look like an intending immigrant then I just have to forget about it and save myself the stress. And also plz the lady in question is not my girlfriend, we are just friends,I just wanna use dis opportunity to visit US as I've never been there before and I've always desired to visit. Tnk you

hello house plz i have a question. i have a female friend in d US dat i want to visit, i have never traveled out of d country for d 1st time so dat means i have a virgin passport. so my question now is, do i need her to send me some sortof invitation letter to enable me apply for d visit visa. tnx
@ladyG, frontpagelawyer or any oda guru in d house plz help

Your best bet is to make a self explosive travel plans (hotels accommodation, reasons of your trip and so on). Reasons been, relationships such as yours may mean well but always suspicions.

Even with a visa waiver passport to states, cbp officers still look at it in a funny way because they consider it that you don't know the individual too well. Yes with your waiver status if with enough money and no criminal background they still allow the individual. If they have concerns with those with such status (visa waiver passport holders), how much more you (Nigerian) with stright administrative restrictions.
Make your own arrangements, if successful, you see her in your trip.

I will refuse to draw conclusions that you want to settle in states if successful in your application as any one else has stated. The intends is only known between you and your maker. You don't have to keep defending your self, it makes no sense.

Good Luck

S/He spoke generally and the response flowed from @FPL's assertion that a red flag will be raised and the earlier advice to go via hotel reservation and not mention your friend. Is the name on your passport hommikr? cheesy . Why u de panic na?

@vo, thanks for your help. Please I intend to apply for a visitors visa with my dad. He qualifies for drop box, can we still apply together even if it means he has to attend an interview with me. Secondly, I created a separate profile for us and now it is impossible to add me as his dependent. Abeg is there a way I can delete my profile so I can apply as his dependent cause I keep getting this error message"the information entered belongs to another applicant". Thank you.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 2 by hommiekr(m): 8:41pm On Oct 15, 2015
Hahahaa lol @ladyG nwanyi oma I no de panic ooh. Am fine. I'll stand by and be reading comments and advices. If my intention is to immigrate to the US illegally I wouldn't have been here seeking for help and advice.
But @ladyG I have to be sincere with you, you are doing a great job here. Maybe you should consider working as a VO @ the embassy. Lol
Indeed oru ina aru ebea amaka.

You could try to attend your interview together, but the interviewing VO might separate you. I don't see why you would need your dad to come in with you though unless you are under 18.

Good day all, I'm scheduled for US visa application interview in Dec with my husband. This is my first attempt at travelling, though my husband has been to UK and few African countries. We've made a hotel reservation for visit. What sort of questions should we expect to be asked please?

To put it mildly...he is a disgusting human being. Pretending to be a woman will not fool anybody.

@sexydivaomalich, i know you will be reading this with one of your numerous other IDs, stop your defamatory articles against certain members here and writing to their bosses to get them sacked, stop using personal details given to you as a visa agent for defamation, your action yesterday when you were confronted says it all.

The hunter will be hunted very soon.
