Now is the best time. It used to take between 5-10 work days before now. These days, it could take much longer. If I were you though, I will submit some 4 weeks ahead of my travel date. Some still get theirs renewed in two weeks and sometimes a little above that till now sha, but err on the side of 4 weeks....

Many thanks, will do from next week.

Submit now.
If you're fortunate then no interview, if they do call for interview the backlog for dates is already in 2019 so submit now.

Alright, i appreciate.

I won't attack your character because you don't have any.

What do I stand to gain from her visa refusal or approval?

With the recent rate of revocation, I did advice you use your visas first, cos at the interview you might/will be asked why u haven't used it for the earlier stated purpose. It does pinch the vos to revoke visas this days.
You might want to weight your options here, and decide what's best for the family. And if you must go for the interview go with the copy of your visa n not your passport, be smart.
This is my deduction after so much research on happenings at the embassy right now.

Thanks for your response I believe I have a good reason for not using the visa at the said time ,I was pregnant and we decided not travel until I have the baby .That seems like a good enough reason?

Yeah! That of course is a good enough reason to give, especially as you birthed in naija (they will appreciate such), I can wager on this to a large extent....

My uncle,his wife and 1st child were in the same shoes. They had 2yrs visa but didn't use it. Along the line, baby no 2 came and they all went to renew with the new baby.
Vo asked why they didn't travel and my uncle mentioned he didn't intend his wife birthing with the B1/B2 visa as their intention was for a vacation. Their visas were renewed and baby also got d visa. You can try ur luck(ensure to take copies of ur visas like someone suggested). All d best

The interview in my opinion couldn't have ended abruptly at the stage the OP put it in the transcript unless he was absolutely lieing to the VO and was caught, maybe long caught ahead of time sef, or OP was fronting fake/unsubstantiated travel history. If not I don't see why one with travel history (severally oh, and all combined too!) to Australia that ranks about same category as US visa, to UK their sister country and a schengen (Sweden) experience in addition will have his interview ended right at the level of his strongest advantage on the application. Abeg, the transcript no complete, something key is missing jare! But what do I know?
.

Nothing key is missing here. One can't just be too sure with these embassy people. It happened to the guy before me when I had my first visa. The guy who happened to be a real estate guy and a pastor in Christ embassy with several Schengen visas also been to the UK. He was denied outrightly. He had 3 attached passports, he was asked how come he never applied to visit the US since he's widely travelled. He said he didn't have any need to. He was actually going to Dallas something about a new branch opening. He was so disgusted with the whole thing. Meanwhile a first timer with no travel history like me got approved. grin

Yes you can.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Malevonent: 12:50pm On Nov 09
Is this an error or somethin.
In the 221g letter..they stated to print the ds 160 form.
To the best of my knowledge the embassy peeps dont even like seeing the ds 160 form..i tried to access it just incase..but i 2asnt able to..its only the confirmation page i could print.
This makes me think the request may be an error or something.

You get an sms. 212g will be in your passport when collected. To be sure, log into your profile, you would see “schedule follow up interview”

Just tap on it and available for dates would drop

I’m not surprised. Ladies and gentlemen a lot of young (age 19 - 45) Nigerians issued with B visas are not returning home. Many go and stay back illegally and it’s becoming difficult for the visa officers to identify such people. My neighbour ( 30 year old lady) went to Atlanta on vacation in November 2017 and is still not back. My cousin in 2012 was issued a B visa along with her parents and sibling to attend their sister’s wedding . Upon return she went back to US in 2014 and has since not returned. We recently heard that she gave birth their. Some days ago a colleague of mine was telling me about his plans to take his family to Dubai for Christmas for the purpose of building some sort of travel history on his passport in preparation for the US visa interview in February. I asked him why he is willing so spend so much on a Dubai trip when he is more interested on a US trip and his response was “ when I get the US visa I’ll want my wife and kids to relocate using the visa “ . He claims his people have asked him to come and worry about adjustment of status when he get there. I heard of another colleague of mine ( don’t know him) who relocated with his family on a B visa earlier in the year. The stories are endless.

The implication of this trend is that genuine vacation seekers may have their applications denied without being able to convince the VO...

Sometimes I don't blame them. I put this menace squarely on these liberal loud mouth, braggadocious, demonic cry babies.the U.S. immigration laws are nothing short of epic jokes

DJT is fixing all the mess and all these illegals through his agenda will not have a path to residency/citizenship they will keep looking over their shoulders committing crimes and never achieving anything tangible till they fall off the radar and end up in undesirable places
