Tips for Obtaining a US Visitor's Visa (B1/B2)

'Tips for obtaining a visitor's visa'

Got this post from IMMIGRATION CORNER By Michael J. Gurfinkel Updated April 26, 2009 12:00 AM

I thought it would be useful for you guys.

Many people are disappointed when they apply for a visitor’s visa, and are refused. They came with all the documents, such as bank statements, land titles, invitation letter, etc. They spent the days before the interview going to church to pray for visa approval. They have a legitimate reason for going to the US and have every intention of returning to the Philippines. So how come they were refused? How does a person increase his chances of getting a visitor’s visa?

Here are a few simple tips:

1. Tell the truth at your interview.

My Visa Interview at the US Embassy in Manila

This is a repost from my old site. The original post is located here, but I've decided to migrate some of my posts to this new site instead.

"Every alien shall be presumed to be an immigrant until he establishes to the satisfaction of the officer, at the time of the application for a visa . . . that he is entitled to nonimmigrant status . . .”

So anyway ... I don't know if it's really difficult for people to get a U.S visa or if it was just luck but it went breezily for me.

I flew in from Cebu at 4:45am, checked into my hotel to leave my phone, went to the embassy at 5:45, barely sunrise.

Paid 700 (the meter was 500 something, the rest was tip) for the cab from the airport, to the hotel as he waited for me to check in then to the embassy.

Was one of the firsts in line.

My interview was kind of like conversing with your friend about your travel plans.

As soon as I approached the window, the interviewer greeted me with a very charming good morning
