Hey'all

Got my US visa without any hassles,

A few tips, The genuineness of ur purpose of travelling is what really matters, if you wan take am run,most likely you wont get it.
e
They'll ask you basic questions like

-Whether you've travelled before, which country you went, purpose?
- Ur mission in the US, who invited you blabla, the pessin wey invite you has to be a legit. resident, otherwise na trouble be dat , embarassed
- Just take all documents that u can use to back-up ur trip, like if you're going on vacation, a letter of reference from ur office stating that you're proceeding on vacation will be good (at least to show that u have a steady job in Naija and all that)
- Also, you have to be clear on where exactly you're heading, e.g Yoiu want to visit Orlando Florida for vacation, or Illinois Chicago to visit your uncle, no be just say u wan sha enter yankee.

-Confidence is key too, and you need to be able to demonstrate that you're quite close to whoever is inviting you, if not going on business, You can print e-mail corrrespondences, etc.

-They'll ask for ur bank statement too,

, just make sure u have definite answers, when u wan travel , how long, who's funding the trip, where u plan to visit, when u dey come back, etc.'

If u're a fresh graduate without a job,, hmmm, na red flag, except u're applying for student visa,



ANd make sure you get there quite early, maybe 6.45am will be good for a 7.00 apointment, there's no point sleeping for embassy gate oo. If God say you go get am, you go everyly get am

Hope this helps,

Dare,

I dey wait oh,

I am a business owner, who have imported from the USA in the last 2years, but yet to visit.

I have done over about $260 worth of business with a top company there, and do at least $30k with USA every quarter with invoices, AWB and transfer slips to prove. But I will like to visit america and expand my ties with new suppliers and also expand business potential with older ones.

On the side I have 6 stores here, and so have an account that's turns over at least N10M monthly in the last 3-6 months.

I will appreciate all kind answers.

@ damola1

you have a very good chance of them giving you the visa,are you married and have kids? cos they might ask you and if you are then you are already in america.

The question they asked was just three,where do i work? which i told them and how much do i earn monthly and also where im i stayin ova there and he says come pick up your visa on friday.they saw at my form that i was married and i have 1 child.i am leaving for yankee later this month around sept 17th.

i wish you all luck

Am not. And they are different. whereas in the UK, I trade at least £20k monthly, in the US, I only trade about $30k per quarter, but have trading in the USA far before i started in the UK.

chidi darling: PLS I need your advice.

You don't need the H1B visa unless you plan to work in the US. Besides, the earliest start date for H1B is October 2014. I think the B1/B2 or M2 is applicable. How long will you stay in the US to "test run" the mobile crane? All you need for your interview is to strengthen home ties in every way possible. Talk to HR.

Me; Hi, Good morning
VO; What are you going to do in the US
Me; I’m going for a Health & Safety training
VO; What kind of training
Me; A newly appointed HSE Officer in my company’s US office needs me to put him through in HSE issues in the Hobark group
VO; Okay. What does your company do?
Me; We offer various services to the some Oil Companies
VO; Nodded and said okay with a smile. Have you travelled before (flips through my passport)
Me; No, I haven’t had any reason to
VO; But why does someone in Nigeria has to go train someone in the US (straight face*)
Me; Yes, because he is newly appointed and needs to understand the HSE system in the group however, he can always go for Basic HSE training in the US
VO; Nodded and smiles *** typing vigorously
Then Lastly,
VO; Are you married
Me; No
