My encounter with this old man who should be in retirement home but still choose to work, one thing i observed was that he is not interested in fun at all, he never looked at me self, he was just typing,(He's in window 9, Abuja US embassy

Vo: Pass me ur paper
Me: Good morning sir
Vo: checking passport
Me: Greeted Again,Good morning sir
Vo: Keeps checking papers and typing continuously ( refuses to respond to my greetings)
Vo: Where are you going
Me: Houston
Vo: Why houston ( Keeps typing why adjusting his eyes glasses because he could even see without eyeglasses)
Me: For tourism and shopping
Vo:Where would you love to visit?
Me: NASA Space Center , Would see Houston Dynamo match,
Vo: (Cuts In) who are Houston Dynamo,
Me:A MLS club in Houston
Vo: Oh!!!
VO: What do you do ?
Me: Works with Google, as Google adsense publisher and Sells Gadget Online too
Vo: What do you mean by Google publisher
Me : I try to explain to him, the lady in another window, jumps in tell him, he said oh!!
Me: I also showed the letter i got from Google California, he looked and returned ( He seems so clueless to me)
Vo: How much do you earn
Me: $1500
Vo: Okay (typing and pulling the Creamy paper) .. Said unfortunately you do not qualify now
Me: Thank you sir...

Summary, at the middle of the interview i thought i have gotten the approval becos seems so confused even if he don't have any idea of my field or many answers i gave him, he gave one man a visa, only because the man said his mom is a US citizen since 2001..
I was praying to be interviewed by one man in window 7, he seems calm and understanding, he gives you all the time in the world to explain yourself, he takes up to 5 minute to discharge any applicant he interviewed... Again their was this family of 4, 2 beautiful kids that was rejected, i was surprised because they looked very rich, maybe he didn't get the questions very well because i saw him choking at one point before the lady brought out Blue paper. .. Well everything happens for a reason, it might be on my best interest, because my prayer this morning was, if is something that will be good for me let it come and if not, let it don't.. My position today came out from a huge disappointment , Now i have spent almost 280k without anything to show for aside from experience, by 280k i mean the money i was scammed by trusted friend, flight & hotel to ABJ and so on... i just thank God
..Hope some people will pick one or two things from my encounter.. You guys can check and tell me where i went wrong, What's the difference btw creamy colour paper and blue paper?

Bro there's this nice man with teddy and baritone voice.... He's a good man and I'm sure he's the man in window 7.
I still can't believe he denied you but why not choose California where Google is based and also I still don't get the ''Tourism and shopping'' I think Vacation is the right word.
You need to reapply asap and hopefully you will get it.

[quote author=Chanbaby post=43245057]Hi everyone, I was denied a usa visa in the Uk 2yrs ago when I applied as a student for vacation. Their reason was that I don't have a strong tie in the Uk and Nigeria. Now I am married but I don't work but my husband works in an oil company. We want to apply for a usa visa to attend my husband's cousin's wedding and a vacation to celebrate our wedding anniversary. What is our chances. Pls, reply is urgently needed. I appreciate the responses so far but gurus in th house Pls help a sister. @chloe7

He issued my visa and it felt like I'm in the boardroom explaining why we have to go for a trip.. He made it simple and educative. God bless him for me anywhere.... I've been denied before and the lady that denied made me feel at ease as well and she gave me a clue why I was refused and I know that the next time I return I will be granted which was what happened.
Bro I know there's a lot on your plate maybe you should reapply within 2 weeks just to get that out of the way. Bless you.

I'm not a guru here but I believe you live in Nigeria so you should always state your earnings in naira. If you are being paid in foreign currency pls convert to naira because I figured it was easy for the man to quickly check you up based on your salary.

Sorry about the denial brother, I saw the same man yesterday at Abuja, seems they rotate window because he wasn't on window nine yesterday but a young lady. The man takes his time to interview and ask questions, the way he communicate softly with people, u will think one have gotten the visa. Well all the best brother and try reapply again and quote ur earnings in naira.
I did mine yesterday with wifey and daughter, and the visa was approved. Going to share transcript soon. Thanks to everybody in the house, too many names to mention, thanks all.

One shocking thing i notice is that this people makes more than one million dollar daily, both ABJ & LAG embassy, and the monetizing part plays a role in rejection

Hello,
If i am to really speculate to why you were rejected,i would say it is because of Houston, Texas. Mostly this days they reject people who want to go to Houston maybe because it has the highest number of Nigerians in the USA. so every person who wants to visit Houston is seen as a serious potential immigrant. Especially your case.you work with google who happens to be in the far west San fransisco Bay Area it is very suspicious to why you want to go to Houston . Most Nigerians have family/friends there. But well, everything in life is destiny. By Gods grace something better is coming your way. Keep praying

@Shwein (sorry the name 3 long)
IMO, I believe the issue was with your job. The vo was not convinced. He wasnt satisfied with your ties. Adsense is something u can do anywhere in the world. U could easily absond.

@chanbaby your circumstance has changed so u can reapply.Sufficent time has elapsed as well. However, nobody and I mean nobody can tell you your chances cos nobody knows.

I wish people would stop asking this pparticular question...if wishes were horses

@Schweinsteiger here's my take on the link you posted...

1) The US did not force any of us to GTBank to deposit our cash their in their name, it was a personal decision. so weather they monetize it or not it's their country ours can do same if we have what it takes. The link also stated that about 60% got the Visa, that's a plus considering that everyone can't just get it on a platter.

2) From what i have deduced so far in the US interview. America values brains not cash, (This is a typical Nigerian problem, cos for us it's the other way round) reasons why they have the best brainy people in the world. and so they make their visa process center around your composure, persona, (profession) or professionalism.

3) Lastly, 5 Billion naira a whole year is trash money to just one US state for a month expenditure. They even give us aide above that sum.

Just my own 50kobo tho....

VO: hello
Me: good afternoon ma.
VO: ur passport pls.
Me: OK. Gave her and she scan just the bar code on confirmation page only and begin type for about 20sec.
VO: why are u travelling to Florida?
Me: Taking my family for Xmas vacation." I made a mistake there, instead of Easter and my wife just pinch me for back, I think she thought I mean Easter because she didn't ask again.
VO: have you travel as a family before
Me: yes we have
VO: which country have you visited together
Me: UK, UAE and south Africa. All this while she is just busy typing and didn't check our passport.
VO: what do u do sir
Me: An a wireline operator in bla bla bla oil servicing company, eket.
VO: how much do u earn
Me: 550k monthly
VO: madam, you r a medical doctor?
Wifey: yes ma.
VO: what do u do
Wifey: Am a medical officer in A&E department, FMC keffi.
VO: what does the gall bladder do?
Wifey: gave her the answer with all the medicals jagons
VO: how much do u earn
Wifey: 215k
VO: are u pregnant
Wifey: yes, the VO was still busy typing as she ask her questions and we give her answers.
VO: when r u due
Wifey: October
VO: do you intend to seek medical care in the US?
Wifey: Yes I do but not on this vacation trip.
VO: what about in the future
Wifey: yes
VO: your visa have been approved, gave the white paper and said direction to get ur passport in 2-3 business day is in there.

That is it oooh house. I thanks you guys. Wish a prospective applicant God's favour because is not about how prepare u r or how often u hv travel but God's favour. A couple was denial visa because their children all went to the US with a visiting visa and then seek asylum using boko haram as reason. The couple's were denial on the ground that the two of them may go there and do the same thing, even with plenty talk from the man, the VO still gave them the yellow paper. So pls pray and have genuine intentions and ur visa will be approved.
Sorry for the long story oooooh.

You're going to believe what you want to believe, but we don't reject people so that they will pay again. "Looking rich" doesn't make you qualified for a visa and you honestly have no idea why that family was refused. That's pretty much all there is to it.
