Thank you all for the observation. Noted! I thought as much that the fact I don't know how he got to the US is a problem, but when I asked him before the interview is said Its not must I know how he got to the US. Secondly she asked about my flight and I said I will take care of that but my invitee will take care of expenses when I get to the US. All the same, thank you all will try some other time.

But I am supposed to attend a conference by April 2018 so I don't know if this will affect my chance
Don't re-apply immediately otherwise you would be denied a visa again. Your greatest doing was you didn't convince the VO you have the funds to take care of trip. As a result, more questions were asked.

Experienced VOs sometimes, don't just stop talking to you like that whenever they noticed a flaw. They go ahead to ask further questions for fairness but at the end, it's all about sorry, you are ineligible blah blah blah.

OK OK, my people I need your guidance and prayers too

I'm scheduled for 7th Of November 7:30am interview at Abuja. I'm a final year student going to see my cousin who has been my backbone in school without seeing me in person, finally she wants me to come for Christmas holidays and new year so she will get to see whom she has been paying school fees for. She's a citizen, born and brought up there with 2kids, I really want to see this my aunty, she's so nice and I wouldn't want interview to screw my chances of playing nice boy to her so she will be happy her money didn't waste while training me,

Am suppose travel 13th of December and return 27th of Feb if granted, abeg my people what are my chances because I have been following this thread since and hearing people saying 'ties' me I don't have any tie, I'm a full time blown student, never travelled before neither worked anywhere,

Advice me pls, because I filled in my form 'Student' as honest answer, and I'm 24yrs old, is there any problem on my own case? Advice me pls everybody here both small and big, I need your advice, dont forget to add your prayers for me behind

I love the honesty in you and enthusiasm, but the bitter truth is that America has a guided law that operates and binds all true Americans, if you can't fulfill your end of the bargain, which is your "ties", it may be a bit difficult to get the visa
But then, am not God, I wish you success

Good day house, please I need an honest advice. My family was denied a visit visa to the United State of America in July 2016. So, we reapplied and was still denied this October 2017.

The same information I used in our earlier ds 160 was still maintained since there wasn't any cooked up info.

Want to ask what might be the issue, can we still reapply and how soon?

Please I need an honest advice from you guys.

Thanks.
Did you travel abroad after the first denial?

Thank you for the advice. I know that invitation letters are not asked from Applicants in most cases. Even so, my host to be wants to send an IV to the US govt.

My question is

1. Should it be sent to Abuja or Lagos?
or
2. Any other approved US govt Agency in USA?

Anyone who have an idea of anything like this should please tell me. I am aware that they don't ask for Invitation letter from applicants, however in this case my host to be wants to send a copy to them
The only way is for you to go for the interview with the letter of invitation.

How your invitee got to the US isn't a problem, she believed you can't finance your trip. Female VOs are just too difficult, they hardly issue visa. They issue visa on their own not what you have in ur profile. For her to say you are not qualified this time, I will advice to give enough time before you re-apply.

it's very simple... they will ask for your work email not your personal email during the interview session. So the email in ds160 is different from your work email and it's not advisable to use your work email to apply for U.S visa.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by OtunOba15(m): 6:35am On Oct 20, 2017
I guess you should check both applications for inconsistencies that might have been the issue besides that you are good to go. Reapply, study your Ds160 form

tyman:


OK thanks

Cannot vividly recollect that of last year, just that the vo asked that maybe I've applied for us visa before, which I answered no. He also took one of our passports, left his seat maybe to confirm the stamps on it, cos we have entry pass and out of Benin Republic, Togo and Ghana on it.

However, this is the transcript of this October.

Vo: Good morning, passport plz.
Me: Good morning, handed her the passport.
Vo: Are these all your children
Me: Yes.
Vo: Flipped through it, then ask why is only one of your son has a stamped passport (mistake)
Me: Nope, it's in all (so she checked through and apologized)
Vo: where are you going in America
Me: Fort Worth Texas
Vo: where do you work:
Me: I work with blah blah bank, as the branch manager, and perform blah blah blah blah roles.
Vo: How long have been working with the company.
Me: 8 years
Vo: How long will you be staying for your vacation
Me: 10 days.
Vo: How do you know your invitee
Me: He's a childhood friend
Vo: (to my wife) What do you do?
Wife: I'm into business, I'm one of the distributors of blah blah blah Nigeria Limited makers of so so so products. I also manage the family poultry business.
Vo: OK, to me again, your official email add
Me: gave her
Vo: I'm not approving your visa for now, then handed us the blue paper.

One mistake I notice was that I mistakenly answered 10 days for our stay, but it was from Dec. 10-23 I filled on the ds160. Could this be the reason? and how soon do you advise we reapply?

If you can differentiate your personal email from your official email, then you should be able to answer that correctly. The interview is to verify and provide additional information. So it doesn't matter or necessary to put your official (work) email in your application. Most work email can be verified.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Oluomo2009: 12:05pm On Oct 20, 2017
Hello all,

I am new here and but i have been following the trend closely.

I need nairalanders urgent advice plsssssssss.

I am a man with a family of five (5), I have never traveled before and i intend to travel to visit a friend in texas for two weeks but i have a sister who lives in Virginia but currently in Nigeria for few months.

Question 1 - I do not intend to visit my sister place when I get to the USA but do I include her address in the "Contact address" section or Do i fill my friend's address in the -"Address where you will stay in the U.S section".

When filling my form, I mistakenly inputted my my sisters address as the contact address and my friend's Address as where you will stay in the U.S.:. While my wife and children's had my sisters address filled in the "where you will stay in the U.S" section & my friends address filled in the "contact address section"

i have an interview in November, is it ok if i edit this corrections by deleting my sisters address since i am not visiting her and she is also currently on a few months visit to Nigeria. She may not return before i travel with my family if given the visa.

Thank you all as you respond.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Opeyemi007: 2:09pm On Oct 20, 2017
So i had my interview at the Abuja Embassy Yesterday, Didn't happen the way i wanted but here's my transcript. Its the second time i'd be denied. The first was in July 2016 while the second time was yesterday. I'm in my finals studying computer science in one of the private universities in Nigeria.

VO- Good morning how are you?
Me- Morning, I'm a bit nervous but i'm fine.

VO- Smiled, Its OK. What High School Did You Go?
Me- I figured the one i filled in my DS-160 was different from the previous one, So i explained i wrote WAEC in one school and NECO in another.

Vo- What university do you go?
Me- ***************

VO- Have you ever travelled out of the country?
Me: Yes.

VO- Where?
ME: South Africa(2013) and Dubai(2014) with my family, Seychelles(JULY 2017) alone.

VO- What were you doing in Seychelles Alone?
Me- I was seeing the beaches and island hopping since it was a week after my birthday.

VO- What does your father do?
ME- I stuttered, He owns a construction and general consulting business and i work for him whenever i have the chance.

VO- Is he here today?
Me- No.

VO- How many children does your father have?
Me- 4( 2 boys and 2 girls) My brother schools in the UK and my Sister got married in June.

VO- I'm sorry but i'll have to agree to my colleagues earlier decision, You can try again when you have stronger TIES.
Me- Thank You.

I was really pained for a few minutes but the fact that i actually wanted to go flex made me get over it. No question was asked about my course or anything. Sometimes i wish they could use a Polygraph at the interview. I thought my school was a good tie cos i don't understand why i'd abandon something i've been doing for the past 3 years to abscond. I'm scheduled to graduate next year. I'm considering the UK/ Schengen but i actually don't want to go to the UK right now because i might have to go there for my masters.

Thanks to everyone that has contributed to this Trend.
God bless you.
