approved b1/b2. Lagos embassy. and i have to say, I couldn't have done it without this thread.

vo: where are you going to?
me: university name, town, state
vo; what are you going for?
me: i was invited to present a paper at 'university name' at 'conference name'
vo: whats that?
me; i explained the conference in more detail
vo; how long are you going for?
me: 6 days
vo: have you left nigeria before?
me: yes, been to a few countries in europe. spain, netherlands, italy. ive been across africa, morocco, mauritius, etc. I love to travel
vo: what do you do?
me; i work as a consultant on XYZ project
vo: how much do you earn
me; 850k a month
vo: are you married?
me: no
vo: any kids?
me: no
vo: tell me about your paper
me: i ramble for about 30 seconds. (he is nodding his head as if its enough abeg)
vo: i'm going to approve your visa.... (hands over pink slip)

observations/advice:
1. i wasn't asked for any documents. in my application as I was going for a conference, i selected only B1 ( i got that tip from here)
2. i prepared my questions and answers and rehearsed (nairaland tip). even yesterday i read the thread and saw a lady answered her question immediately with the name of the course, venue, state. so i updated my answers so my response will be concise (another tip from here)
3. i didnt hesitate with my answers (the benefit of rehearsing) . too many people were saying 'ehn?', meanwhile me far away could hear the questions
3. don't ramble. be confident. don't lie on your application. i've been refused over 10yrs ago and even though i didnt do biometrics, I mentioned it. (nairaland tip) LIES WILL MAKE YOU NERVOUS.
4. don't engage in chatchat with people. all that 'naija is bad/they arent giving visa's etc etc. it ruins your energy. be silent and focus on why you are there (my personal advice)
5. they were approving and refusing people. the vo i met refused a lady for student visa because the course date was in the past. he advised her to get a new i20 from the uni. he refused a mama who couldn't explain what she did there her last visit for 2mths. they aren't demons. they have their reasons for either refusals or approvals.

Good luck to all. I hope this helps.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by lekkistar: 11:11am On Feb 07
hello good people

if someone says they want to go for 6 days on their application, but they end up going for 8 days as evidenced by their ticket. will there be any future problems with visa applications or even entry to the US?
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by highvibration: 11:13am On Feb 07
sure. how does that work?

but why not ask here so others can gain?

Classic case, they have heard that 1000 times. The average American can’t afford a trip overseas they don’t expect you to be able except if there is a motive to immigrate.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by fkj950ax(m): 8:47am On Feb 08
SmartKitty:

It's the reason they gave you visa. You are well paid in your country and not very young for to find easy a better job in US. You are welcome to visit because you won't overstay., overstaying means poverty for you in US. Also you are a female, if you marry an American in one of your trips it's more real than in case of the male visitors.

31 is also under 40. You can't categorically state this is the reason she got approved.

I don't think it has to do with age or gender. She was assessed as a person

She has good pay and great travel history, but if we look at it NL style, we would have said she has no strong ties, being single and no kids is the reason for refusal.

These things aren't hard and fast rule.

Her transcript for me shows a methodological person who prepared well and stayed confident.

These are my opinions.

If it was a male, they would approve a man over 50-60 years old because it's not easy to start the new life in US for a man at this age. Even an American woman wouldn't marry the foreign man this age, he can't find a decent job in America unless he is a high class scientist or businessman.

What are you talking about? SHE DESERVED IT. SHE'S A SCHOLAR, WENT AROUND EUROPE, EARNS GOOD MONEY AND IS DAMN DISCIPLINED.

AMERICANS WANT GENUINE VISITORS IN THEIR COUNTRY. FOLKS WHO HAVE REAL, CONSEQUENTIAL BUSINESS TO DO IN THERE.

SHE'S A CAREER WOMAN. NO TIME FOR MARRIAGE YET LOL

Hi guys. Been a silent reader for a very long time now.

I went for my interview yesterday and got DENIED.

Location : Lagos. V. I.
Scheduled Time : 6:45 am

I arrived as early as possible. Got my documents ready and was advised to take a 2x2 passport photo which was quite different from the one I came with. I was charged 2k for 6 copies though.

The time for checking in and screening came, we filed into the reception, got our international passports checked and tagged at the back with a white paper that bore our respective names and codes. We sat patiently on each seats and waited for the next move.

I got in contact with some little lovelies (kids). They're twins though. Aged 3. They came with their mom. 2 minutes later, the kids were all over me, asking my name. I told them with a smile and BOOM they started singing it. They'd prefix it with "bro" before my name. I laughed hard and every other persons kept laughing at their hilarious display. They left their mum and clung unto me throughout our stay there.

We headed into the main building for the next phase of screening. The kids didn't let go of me. I was then a father figure to them. They forgot their mom who trailed behind with a wide grin and laughter. She had no option.

Here in the big interview hall, those kids kept screaming my name "bro xxxxx". Ah! It was very loud that people kept laughing all through.

Are you their father? They asked. No, I'm not, sir, ma.

My passport and photo were collected and scanned. I waited patiently to collect it and queue on the line for biometrics. Their mom held them tightly this time for my privacy. Immediately, I withdrew from the window 6, brandishing my passport and other items, those lovelies jump on my body, screaming at the top of their voices " bro xxxx, bro xxxx, he is back".

I laughed heavily.

Time for the biometrics came, I went. Met a white lady who was very friendly on the window 1.

"Your left fingers please". She said. I placed them.

"Are you alone?". Yes.

"Are those your kids"?. I then looked back and saw those angels. They held on my thigh and was screaming my name again, saying I had left them. Then I told the white lady that they're not my kids, they came with the other lady. She laughed and asked why they were following and singing my name. I said that's how today turned out. She laughed and said "you're gonna have a hell of kids in your home". We laughed together and I went to queue in for the main interview. The babies had their biometrics done and rushed to me again.

"Uncle, are you traveling to the USA with us", they asked me. I said yes. Their mum said of course, yes. He's coming with us. They jumped up with laughter. To cut the story short, they disturbed me with series of questions that made everyone laugh out loud.

The lady on window 6 that checked out passports came out and asked " who's this uncle xxxx". The babies mum pointed at me. She approached me as said "you're a lucky man. I heard you just met them outside". I said YES. Then, she walked away.

It was my turn for the interview, I motioned the babies to join their mum. I walked to window 6 where I met a white guy.

Vo:Good morning, sir. He said
Good morning, sir.

Where are you going to?

Houston, Texas.

Why?

Vacation

What do you do?

I'm a Sales executive in ****. I explained further. And further.

Do you have a relative?

Yes. Her name is *** *** ***.

OK, have you traveled before?

No, sir. But ***

YOU DO NOT QUALIFY FOR ************ (Here, I off). A yellow paper was tendered to me alongside my passport.

Excuse me sir, why am I not eligible, please.

He looked at me and said "You do not have a travel history.

I collected the paper and left.

And to the op that said, you shouldn't chat away, or be stringent and all. No be by muscle bro. It's by his grace and your "content".

That lady whose babies disturbed me had a valid Visa, her husband is in the US, her son is in the US too. She just came down to pick these ones to join the rest of the family. The little kids were denied too alongside a whole lot of people who has valid reasons of visiting the US.

A guy was denied too. He had been to UAE, France, Dubai, China, etc. What do you have to say about this?

There was this man that was issued a visa yesterday. He travels every month. He had been to Netherlands, USA, France China, UK, Germany, a whole lot of countries. From his statement, he was in Spain in December, UK in January, France in November. (Bros, I fear). Country no d finish for where the man dey. He was issued. He stays just weeks in each country.

Hi guys. Been a silent reader for a very long time now.

I went for my interview yesterday and got DENIED.

Location : Lagos. V. I.
Scheduled Time : 6:45 am

I arrived as early as possible. Got my documents ready and was advised to take a 2x2 passport photo which was quite different from the one I came with. I was charged 2k for 6 copies though.

The time for checking in and screening came, we filed into the reception, got our international passports checked and tagged at the back with a white paper that bore our respective names and codes. We sat patiently on each seats a waited for the next move.

I got in contact with some little lovelies (kids). They're twins though. Aged 3. They came with their mom. 2 minutes later, the kids were all over me, asking my name. I told them with a smile and BOOM they started singing it. They'd prefix it with "bro" before my name. I laughed hard and every other persons kept laughing at their hilarious display. They left their mum and clung unto me throughout our stay there.

Wait let me tell you. I didn't write this for your kind of input. I care less about what you say. I've had my experience and that's all. Why do you people think you know it all?
