Hello Everyone,

Just found this thread and I am so glad I did. Thanks to all who respond in helping others.

My situation is this. My husband is a lpr who has filed i 130 for me. Anyone know if I can successfully get a visa with a pending i 130?

Also when applying, should i use my statement or my husband statement since he is the one sponsoring me and the trip. My statement of account is not too adequate. I am also a hair dresser, are there any documents I can use in backing this up in terms of my job?

Thanks in advance


You can get a visa, the reason for traveling should be genuine
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by flourishing247: 10:19am On Mar 14
Kieranfrench:
once i 130 is filed, u are not entitled to apply for visa because you will be refused by the VO.

Not true. You can still get a visa depending on your reason for the trip

Hello Everyone,

My Questions:

If he's able to get his new passport before the interview,is he suppose to do any amendment to his DS160 or he should just go with both passports?

Anyone kindly respond..

Using company’s account for a personal trip or vacation is a red flag..the sponsor should provide you with his own personal account
Julizee:


Thanks for your response, regarding account statement, I intend going with the company account statement, and letter of sponsorship.
Do I have high or low chances of getting a visa approval?

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Lankesolanke: 4:11pm On Mar 14
Una for wait make visa expire first na..
Kieranfrench:
Hello Good day everyone. my story is quite strange. I got a 2 years US tourist VISA in 2016 to expire november 2018. Have travelled twice with the visa and was planing my third travel right around when the visa would expire so i opted to renew it via dropbox even before it expires. When i got my passport i saw a 221g letter attached to it asking me to schedule an interview.... i didn't know wrong i did. was very disappointed. i ended up still travelling with my visa because it had 3 months still valid. Reaching d border, i was interviewed as usual and passed through with ease. Made me even more confused why my visa wasn't renewed via dropbox. Now this is what you have to know too, i got a new passport with my surname changed (because am married so wanted to answer my husbands name). My husband however is an American with a foreign name. So have been thinking if my change of name on my new passport had something to do with my visa not renewed. I scheduled my interview on april with the first available date that i saw.... Just few days ago i received a mail from the embassy that they have rescheduled me for next week..... bringing my interview date closer ...lol i don't know what i did to them. am confused....

any advice please? thank you
NB: never overstayed, first trial i got the visa so not been rejected before, have a good travel history.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by KaptainAfrika: 4:35pm On Mar 14
I don't know, but I guess VO's just hate the "I travelled to * insert any ECOWAS country * . "

I think its a perception thing - the applicant must have traveled to get a stamp on his passport and/or have travel history.

Woe unto the Professor, that is going for a conference or the couple that goes on honeymoon. #shrugs

But I think the purpose of the trip, makes the difference.

I.M.H.O

See the above again and see the below too....



These guys can call you up for any random reason. As long as you never overstayed nor fail to abide by the visa conditions, you should be good, especially that you made a trip to the US with it as earlier scheduled and came back should be a plus too methinks.... I personally believe if it was anything major, you wouldn’t pass the radar of the CBP on arrival to the US POE, I may be entirely wrong on this though but I doubt I am.

Makes sense

You could be a young adult hoping to get to US and hustle for your family. You may not come back.
Ghana is not a migration destination for Nigerians, so it's not really weighty.
But I am of the school of thought that insufficient evidence of strong ties back home influenced the VOs decision.

We actually has an onward flight to canada. We were just picked randomly for questioning . Thanks for you input/advice










seyewest:


I'm sorry to hear about what happened but I think you've not painted the full picture of what happened in New York, I see no big deal in entering through New York except you have no onward flight to Florida or maybe you have suspicious stuffs in your baggage, suspicious messages on your phones and probably you've posted a lot of info on SM that you have no plan to return to Nigeria before taking this trip.

I'm not sure you will get a U.S visa in a long while and I wondered why you never tried our countries like E.U, UK and Australia.

Please forget about U.S for now.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Larrylrkay(m): 11:10am On Mar 15
Good morning great people on this thread. This is the first time on featuring here, though, i am on Germany thread. Pls i need some pieces of information ASAP.

On March 26, 2018, i paid for a visa fee which is 64k few days after i was denied a visa alongside 9 other people in my group going for a conference in California,USA. I had to pay for the fee because there was an information then that there would be a review of US visa fee, thinking that the price would increase.

Since then, i have not made use of the visa fee, after almost a year, i have now decided to feel my DS 160 form so as to use the visa fee before 26th of this month which it will expire.

I intend to go for my masters in Germany next month, hence, i will like to pick December as my interview date at the US embassy so that i will have a better chance as regards travel experience.

my Questions:

1.What is the official website of the US embassy so i can fill my DS 160 form?
2.Please what is the current date interview had gotten to?
3.Do i have a better chance this time if i appeared for an interview as a student studying in Germany?
4.I want to register for any available conference which will be my motive of traveling and I will like to fill my form myself using the previous form as template. please what program do you think its good for me. I am an Art student. I read English language and i practice journalism.

thanks for your response in advance.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by ozymes: 1:10pm On Mar 15
Dear Members, Please just a clarification. If one does a Dropbox visa renewal application and was called for a 221g interview and the interview was successful and B1/B2 Visa issued. When filling a renewal form when the current visa must have expired, what would be the answer to the question have you ever been denied/refused a US visa before?

Was sent a mail to go collect passport after Dropbox submission with an attached letter asking to schedule 221g interview to speak with a VO and the Visa was approved and issued.
