Hello BlowJobs, thank you for your sincere exposition.

Can one work with B1/B2 on his own? I mean he will not look for any job. He will only be offering web design and graphics design services to people online. He will not be working physically in the US, but online.

Ok thanks for the clarifications. Sounds scary ...how do the confirm my availability of funds? Would they want to see the cash or my bank statement? How would they start calling the banks from the POE to confirm? undecided

If you are travelling for Pleasure or Business, you mustn't be a rich fellow with a fat bank account. Your ties does it all for the visa. Then at the POE, bank statement is not necessarily needed, all you need is a proof that you will not be a liability or you will not abuse your visa by working illegally to foot your bills, you should have reasonable cash to sustain you for that short duration and in most cases, when they doubt you, they move you to secondary and there you show your raw cash that can cover for the trip, or your master card etc, they sometimes take a step further on those cards either by insisting you log in to your bank account or which ever way you can, and show them. Its left for you to prove at that point or get your visa cancelled.
Have you not read stories of people depoted at US POE due to insufficient funds? It happens all the time.
Example: in your DS160 and interview, you claimed you don't know anyone, and you claimed staying for 14days , then you show up at POE with $150 only, it doesnt add up. There are a lot of scenarios

The thing is that, never let it reach that level, always have enough cash on you, hotel confirmed , connected flight ticket , return tickets etc.

I am starting to see what Mrs K means as too much bad news. What should people do with the picture of the accident? or picture of badly injured people, decapitated human bodies or burnt victims?

What exactly is the purpose of the horrifying pictures? it doesn't honor the victims at all. it dehumanizes them. So what it the purpose of those threads on the home page? it is still morning and so much bad news on the home page.

We need to do better collectively.

Hello
Please I need you to know that it's just a business strategy.

Nice thread!!

No. Because you will be getting paid for this service. And that's considered illegal.

And also since u earn on daily basis, How is Ur tax deducted?

Why am asking, I got this quote somewhere


'If a person who earns $5,000 per month pays 15% on her salary over $3,000 and up to $5,000, she will pay $300 pee month.
If a person who earns $5,500 per month pays only 30% on his or her salary, he or she will pay $150.00
per month.

Wow. nice thread, keep it up and thanks for all the info.

Last year my family (myself, wife & 5yr, 3yr children) got our b1/b2 visa but we couldn't make the trip due to my busy schedule. During interview we mentioned Disney World Florida as this is has been my children's dreams.

Now, we're scheduled for the vacation in less than two weeks we already booked return ticket Lagos/NY (instead of return ticket to Disney World mentioned last year). Myself & wife would love to visit NY (booked hotel accommodation already) and after a week head to Disney World Florida (also hotel booking) because of our children.

My question: Do you think this may be an issue at PoE as to why return ticket Lagos/NY instead of return ticket Lagos/Florida?

what you wrote in the visa application when filling is what the cpb looks at the port of entry. Why not land there, and book a connecting flight to where ever you want to go.

You may not have issue since you re travelling as a family rather than as an individual, but if asked, you can defend yourself.

You think so? According to reports, u are supposed to enter into the country through the state you told the V. O

I guess the bolded part even made it more complicated. Cos the other way round it could be an issue since he's traveling as a family, chances of them returning back looks slim cos it looks like no ties back home again

BlowJobs:
Use your visa for the purpose you got it. Be wise o.
If you get visa for conference in Alabama, enter yankee for conference in Alabama.

If you get visa to visit family in Maryland. Enter yankee to go to maryland.
No come boarder control come tell dem say you change your mind. No be like that o.

For One week visit, no pack two full immigrant luggage o


BlowJobs:
Boarder control has the authority to check your personal belongings including your phone/laptop.

All the times i visited on B1/B2. I always make certain that my stories check out. Regardless of how many times i don visit yankee. I no go let one overzealous boarder agent spoil my joy.


Just advising you to play safe, u av gone this far

Have you booked a flight to Florida also?

daret002:
hello...

my closest friend got a visa to travel to the US on a virgin passport, he filled that he will be staying with a friend in new jersey in DS-160. but unfortunately, the friend is currently in Dubai.

my friend wants to file ticket that will get him to chicago. is this in anyway wrong thing to do?

really i should ask: WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARRIVE AT THE POINT OF ENTRY OTHER THAN THE ONE STATED ON YOUR DS-160?

i really want this to get to the front page, so as to get as much of information as possible.

THANKS IN ANTICIPATION.

worry359:


Two things to sort out here.
Not staying with friend and change of POE.
I suggest pre-booking a hotel in Chicago for one or two nights so that POE can check where you are staying (if they ask.)
Have a GOOD story why you are in Chicago not New Jersey (include the truth that your friend is away.)
Have an itinerary of what you will be doing. (DO NOT SAY HUSSLING!) shocked


daret002:


Thanks bro...we spoke with a friend who is an american citizen., he sounded convincingly that he need to get to Chicago been the first time travel



Boss please try play safe.
Good luck

you re right but these cbp are humans and are considerate. It is harder to deport entire family than an individual.
