B1 B2 Visa Interview Questions and Answers for USA Visitor Visa

Do you have a visa interview appointment and are wondering what type of questions would be asked? Then you have landed on the right page. I have listed some sample b1 b2 visa interview questions and answers to aid in your interview preparations.

When attending a visa interview, the visa officer is interested in finding out if you would return to your country of residence after your visit to the USA.

If you already have a visa interview appointment, it means that you already have an invitation letter and other documents that you may need to present at the interview.

There are a variety of questions that could be asked depending on the purpose for your visit, the answers you give to previously asked questions, the status of the one inviting you and your country of residence.

My advice to you is that you are not stressed about the questions or the interview. Understand that you are going to spend money in the USA, be sure within you that you want to come back to your country of residence and be well prepared.

The fact that you are reading this is already a good preparation for the visa interview appointment. You may also get the Ultimate Visa interview Kit for more tips to prepare for your interview.

B1 B2 Visa Interview Questions and Answers (Sample)

Here are some questions that could be asked if you are a friend visiting the USA for your annual vacation.

  1. How do you pronounce your name?
  2. What are you going to do in the USA?
  3. Is this your first time of applying for a visa to visit the USA?- I know a few people who have lied on this question and jeopardized their chance of getting the visa
  4. Do you have any relatives in the USA?
  5. Who is he or she?
  6. Where do you plan on staying during your visit? (You should have prepared an answer for this question – If staying at a hotel, have the name or if staying with your host, just say so and mention the address.)
  7. What does your friend do for a living?
  8. Where does he or she work? – Have the correct name of the Company your friend works at
  9. How will you be funding your trip? (Have financial documents ready for this question)
  10. Is your friend married?
  11. Do you know their status in the USA? (Mention the type of visa they have or that they are citizens)
  12. How long will you be staying in the USA?
  13. What will you be doing for the 3 weeks? Any Plans?
  14. Do you plan on working while you are there? You should always say no to this question. A visitor visa does not permit you to work.
  15. If you have the opportunity, would you stay in the USA? The answer is no. Give reasons why you have to return to your country of residence.
  16. What do you do for a living?
  17. So what will happen to your job while you are away? – Mention that you are on Annual Leave.
  18. Will you be going with your family?

B1 B2 Visa Interview Questions and Answers for USA Visitor VisaThese are just sample b1 b2 visa interview questions and answers. During the interview, you may be asked only a few questions. In most of my interviews I have been about 10 or less. In one case I was barely asked 3 questions and I got the visa.

Many times the visa officer has formed an opinion by just looking at your documentation but she wants to confirm her opinion or see if you can produce other documents or explanations that will convince her otherwise.

Always remember that the burden is on your to show to the visa office that you deserve to get the visa because you will surely return to your country of origin.

If this has been helpful, I suggest that you get the Ultimate Visa Interview Kit to help you prepare properly for your interview. In it you will find these and other valuable tips that will help improve your chances of receiving your travel visa.

Sample US Visa Questions and Answers For Parents

The prospect of having a parent visit you in the United States is quite exciting. At least it is, until you’re faced with the hurdle of acquiring a Visa for them.

The ultimate making or breaking point of the Visa acquiring process is usually the interview. In order to ensure that it goes off without a hitch, it is important to prepare your parents adequately for the ‘grilling’ they might face – this article will highlight possible questions they might be asked and the best answers for them.

Before proceeding with the interview, it is important to note that it is possible to ask in advance for an interpreter. This may be especially necessary if you feel it would be easier for them to communicate in their native tongue.

Also remember to begin the interview with a polite greeting, and introduce yourself; if you are asked to – this may not be necessary since the interviewer is likely to request for your passport before commencing the interview.

Sample Question 1: Why do you want to travel to the US?

Answer: To visit my son/daughter and for tourism.

 

Sample Question 2: Have you visited the US before?

Answer: Yes or no (as applicable)

If yes, include details of the past trip, its duration and purpose.

If no, answer with no additional explanations.

Sample Question 8: What does your child do for a living in the US?

Answer: He/she works as a (insert occupation), at (insert company name)

This answer may be followed by subsequent questions regarding their annual income, and the length of time within which they have been working, to which you may respond by saying “ he/she earns an estimated X dollars per year, and are at X-level in the company given their X-years stay at the company.

While this is important, it is also quite important to note that you must not give answers to unsolicited questions.

 

Sample Question 9: Will anyone be accompanying you on this trip?

If yes, state the person with whom you would be travelling. They would also be required to present their passport and undergo an interview process of their own.

Sample Question 11: How many children do you have, and how many currently live in the US?

Answer: I have X –number of kids and X number currently reside in the US

Other questions likely to be asked border along the lines of your physical and mental health, and that of the child you would be visiting. You may also be required to come with the child’s birth certificate and proof of livelihood. Questions regarding other personal details may be excluded since they are already indicated in the documents you would be required to attend the interview with.

    I want to know if I was denied a h2b visa under section 214b four years ago. Can I apply for a B2 visa and will my first application be used with the new one to make a decision?

    Reply

      Yes you can apply for a B2 visa. Yes your initial application information will be available to the visa officer. In four years your situation should have changed but you will still need to show beyond doubt that you intend to return to your home country. This can be done with good documentation and a good interview. If I were you, I will apply after preparing a strong file that shows that I will return to my country of residence.

    Please advise if the visa visitor pass date is in November 2013 and the visitor marries in October 2013 and her VISA EXPIRES IN 2016, she files the adjustment packet before the pass expires, does she still need to leave the US? If so, can she leave before the pass expires and return again as a spouse to a U.S. Citizen?

    Hi admin, my question is that I am a
    21 year old student of a reputable
    university in Ghana, I have excellent
    grades, and I have every single
    member of my immediate family here
    in Ghana as well.
    I took a course last semester about
    the United States and I learnt a lot
    about the place and I discussed it with
    my uncle who is a citizen of the US.
    He invited me and I went to the US
    consulate here to get a visa but was
    denied under section 214(b) of the
    immigration and nationality act.
    Now, during the interview, the VO
    asked questions to which I answered
    truthfully, although I did not add or
    substanciate them with any
    documemts.
    I want to know when I can go for
    another interview and how I can
    prove that I have strong ties here in
    Ghana because I have only a year left
    to graduate from my university and I
    do not intend to abandon that to
    restart life all over again in the US.
    thanks.

      Hi MJ, usually people are advised to wait for 6 months to reapply. However you will need proper documentation to prove your ties to Ghana. Many young people are willing to leave their program and start all over again. Some ideas that come to mind right now are: A letter from your school stating that you are almost done and that you are involved in some associations or clubs at school where you are in the executive. It is usually difficult for a young single man to prove ties to any country. My advice is that you get documentation to prove your ties (as much as a 21 old man can) and trust that if it works great and if not, maybe it’s not yet your time to visit the USA.

        Thanks So much admin.
        I’ve really found this helpful.
        I have a letter from my school as well as my transcript.
        Family pictures, and investments that have been made in my name, and other documents I think might be of help.
        About reapplying in 6 months,…in 6 months, school would have re-opened and I’ll be writing my thesis then so I’ve decided to see if I can get it now and go for the vacation, or wait till I complete school.
        Thank You once again.

    Hello Admin,
    I have one more question to ask,…
    during my interview, the consular officer found out that my uncle had filled a petition for my family but my parents turned it down last year.
    I did not declare it in my application because I thought the petition was filled in my dad’s name and not mine.
    I have declared it in my new application that we had an immigrant petition filled for us last year but we turned it down,…I want to know whether that mistake can affect my chances of getting the visa and do I have to declare it again during the interview??
    I have the interview this Tuesday.

    I am the Paramount Ruler of my Kingdom – My Coronation is May 1-5 next year, and as such I have been invited to be the best man of one of my subjects who resides in the US.

    I have the following as evidence:

    1. Letter of Appointment as Executive Director Corporate Services/Public Relations from my Company.
    2. Letter of Attestation from my Traditional Ruling Council
    3. Letter of Confirmation from my Workplace, stating the contents of my appointments, remunerations, bonus, etc
    4. Payslip of net monthly income of N1,085,601.67, and N13,130, 122.13 annually.
    5. Authorized statement from my Bank
    6. DS-160
    7. Visa Appointment payment slip
    8. International Passport and 5cm x 5cm photograph
    9. Company ID Card
    10. Organizational Membership cards as Vice President (South-S0uth) of National Youth Council of Nigeria

    From the above, i am not yet married, but engaged with a Son – my Heir apparent. Please what are the possibilities of getting the Visa, being that i wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to attend this wedding, being that these family has contributed immensely to the development of my community. I also would very much love to explored the opportunities to shop for my forthcoming coronation.

    Furthermore, i have read in many sample questions, for travel experiences. I know i have traveled to Cameroon, Ghana, Togo, Niger, Chad, etc; but these has not been in the last 5yrs, but in the last 8yrs. I also plan to visit South Africa, Australia and Germany by January, which is a recently development. But i saw filled that i had not traveled in the last 5yrs in my DS-160. On the contrary, i have filled out the DS-160 when the travel arrangements were made, and i answered “No” on the questions that indicated if i had traveled in the last 5yrs, since its been more than 5yrs i traveled.

    Please do I have any chances of prompt interview.

    Good afternoon! I’m a 28yrs old woman. Filipina, working in Dubai as an Assistant. My pay isn’t that big, but I won a singing competition which gave out 20,000 Dhs. I deposited half of it on my account in the Philippines (which I cannot withdraw until I return back there), and half of it will be spent on my planned trip. I’m planning to visit my cousins in Hawaii, and planning to do a little tour around the island. My uncle will be providing me with a place to stay. I’m planning to see Pearl Harbor, Missouri Memorial, Waikiki Beach.. and if possible see the Flowing Lave from a helicopter ride and do a rainforest and waterfall hiking.

      Hi, No one except the visa officer can tell for sure who will get a visa. However I have seen so many “good” profiles rejected because of carelessness and sometimes tough luck. What I would say is that if you have documents to show that your husband would return to complete his program, you may have a chance. What the visa officer would want to know is why you have not yet sponsored him to come over to the USA as a family member?

      Hi Rachel, Yes it is possible. What you need to do is make sure you state your purpose clearly as visiting friends. You will need to show that you plan on going back to you country of residence to get a tourist visa. If you package your application properly and have good documentation, your chances are increased especially if you have traveled out of your country before now. It all depends on how well you show that you plan on getting back to you country after your vacation.

      Hi Mohammad,

      The questions you would be asked would be to confirm what you have written in your application and to verify that you plan on returning to RSA after visiting the USA. The questions will be easy to answer as long as you ensure that what you have put together is correct. You will need to show your finances from the family business (I think you already have this). What you need now is to package your application properly. I suggest you check this package out. It will give you some valuable tips on how to package a winning application. visainterview.info I wish you the best.

    YES!

    Admin * I have a finances from my family businesses. So now my another question is to you now. I am not citizen here in RSA. I just have a work permit to leave here so can I fly with that work permit. To travel USA please reply me?

      Hi Mohammed I am not an immigration officer with RSA or USA so I cannot give you legal advice you need to consult the immigration office in RSA to be sure that you can come back to RSA after going to the USA! However, with a current work permit in RSA, you can fly to USA once you have your visa! As long as you have legal documents in RSA which you have (work permit) you can apply and receive a B2 visa for USA!

          Congrats Kayode!
          I rejoice with you that your gift is taking you to the USA ! As you go for the interview, prepare docs that show that you are rooted in Nigeria! Such as a letter from your employer that you are on vacation or as I guess from the church that this trip is part of your work and that you will return to it! Get ready to answer some personal questions like how did you start playing the sax? If you get an employment offer in the USA what will you do? What are your plans after this convention? Here is what I did when I still needed visa! I told myself that the visa is mine! There is no reason for me to be refused! I’m not lying to the officer and I really have to plans of becoming an illegal resident so no need to worry! With this attitude, you will be confident and more convincing! You don’t need to give too much info at the interview! Just answer the question they ask! If you think a doc would be useful, take it along but don’t present it until it is required! All best on you interview!

          I think you have a good chance because you are being sponsored by your work place – I’m guessing that you are a full time pastor! Your single status may stand as a thing to look at but you have a reputable organization backing you! If you have landed properties, please take the docs along as well as your bank statements! I hope you get a reasonable pay from the church! Nevertheless I believe that you still have a good chance of getting the visa! God bless you!

    Hello Admin,
    I applied for a B2 Visa back in 2004/2005.Now I’m about to apply for a F1 as I’ve become a graduate,worked and now even have my home.What other evidences can I show at the embassy?

    Reply
    1. Admin Post author

      Hi Abiodun! I think your home (better if it’s your property) will go a long way to show that you intend to return to Nigeria after your study! A letter from your employer stating that you are on study leave will also help. A letter from a charity or NGO that you are involved in stating your role and the fact that you are going to study and return will help! If you are married it helps also if your wife is also well established in the country! The key is to look around you and prepare docs to show how tied to Nigeria you are. You may not need to show all the documents but make sure you have them with you! Finally relax and trust that by the Grace of God! The best will be done! Convince yourself that life goes on here or there and remember you are contributing to the USA too if you are given the visa! All the best!

    Hi, I applied for a B1B2 visa in june 2014, and was denied a visa, I work in a reputable oil company and am married I don’t know why it was denied but am applying this year again don’t know what are my chances?

    Reply
    1. Admin Post author

      Hi Tony! It can be quite a pain to be denied a visa and not to know the reason! Usually it’s because you may not have demonstrated enough ties to your home country as far as that particular consular officer was concerned! If you have a letter from your office stating that you are on leave it may be helpful! Otherwise include some landed properties in your file and trust that you would meet a more favorable officer this time! Also try to package your documents very well! Make it very easy for the officer to access any information she needs! I talk about this in my ebook at http://www.visainterview.info! All the best Tony! I know a few people who have applied a second time and they received the visa! So you have a chance!

    Good day Admin,
    My visa interview is slated for monday 22nd of june. I am attending my cousin’s wedding in Houston Texas on my uncle who happens to be a citizen’s invite. My mum and my younger brother already have their visas. I run our family business as the Executive Director, married with two lovely kids. I studied at master’s (Msc) level in Ukraine 2010-2012, was in Ghana and Benin Republic as regards work last year. What are the likely questions I should expect as I am somewhat jittery to be candid!

    1. Admin Post author

      Hi Saheed! I think you have what it takes to get a visa! You don’t plan to leave the business behind and hide in the USA! The fact that your F1 visa was denied earlier should not be any problem! I would suggest you relax, answer whatever questions they as simply and expect your visa! I am not a consular officer but from my experience you have a good chance! All the best! Don’t forget to package your document properly! I go over that in my ebook – visainterview.info

      Hi Kenchie, your travels to other countries and return to your home country demonstrates your willingness to return after your visit to the USA! So yes, your chance of getting a B2 visa this time around is much greater! So with proper preparation things should go better!

    I have applied tourist visa for US from Canada. I am a student here(from India). During the time of interview, consulate reviewed my admit letter from the university and study permit and then he asked for my CV ( I didn’t have my CV at the time of interview ). So he asked me to mail them a detailed CV on some email id(GOT NERVOUS) and I got confused and gave it the in person( took out the print out of CV and came back to the embassy again). Consulate on the window said that’s it for the day, we’ll contact you via email.
    When I came back home, I checked the status of my application, It is under “admin process” and will take several weeks or more. what does this mean? could anyone help me out here please ?!

    I recently was approved a visitor visa. When I was denied initially in January 19, 2016, the consular officer did not ask me of any documents. Some of the Questions I was asked was”Are you married and my answer was No. Who is paying for your trip and I said My host” the next thing he said was I am not qualified. And that I should feel free to apply anytime. I reapplied again three days later and I went for my interview on the 21, February 2016. But this time, I did not wait to be asked my documents. I instantly told the consular that I was initially rejected because I was told that I do not have a strong tie to my country that will make me return. I showed her my letter of invitation and my letter of introduction from my organization. And the next word I heard from the woman was “congratulations.” I noticed that in my last interview, I was more convinced and even before the interview I asked the officer about her family and acknowledged her work. Just be cool and be sure of yourself.

      Hello Bukola,

      Usually only the visa applicant is allowed to attend the interview but I believe it doesn’t hurt to go with them and let the security officer know that you are travelling together. For sure you don’t need to pay a visa fee again.

    I’ve been dating a US Citizen for quite a while and I am thinking of popping the question. I want to do things the legal way and so I need all the info I can get before i do.

    I am going to the states for vacation soon and I’ll be seeing her. I just want to know if it would be ok to engage to her over there (in the US) or that I’d have to wait until she comes to my home country months after my visit.

    Is there anything wrong with getting engaged in the states on a B1/B2 visa?

      Hi Abimbola,

      No one can tell you your chances of getting a visa. What matters is that you package your application properly and go with confidence that you will return to Nigeria after your ministration. I think you will have a good chance if you all can show documentation that you have good reasons to come back. Expect questions about the event, your church and proof that you will return.

      Hi Dr, your chances may be affected be affected by the fact that your husband is not working at the moment, however if you show to the visa officials that you cannot leave your husband in the USA and abandon your career in Saudi Arabia, you should have a good chance!

      Try to show that your family is closely knit and you won’t leave anyone behind

    Hi Admin,

    I am seaman’s wife. I am newly married. My husband works in one of the reputed shipping company. My husband wants me to join with him on ship. I have applied for b1/b2 visa but my application got rejected under the section 214 b. Can I reapply for the same with all documentation from my husband’s company? What documents should I carry with me while going to interview?

    Last time they didnot ask me to show any document from my husband’s company so I have not showed all those documents to VC just showed them my husband’s passport and cdc copy along with our marriage certificate and some photos of our marriage and got rejected.

    Please advise me.

      Hi Acadia,

      There is nothing wrong with visiting for 2 months. Just have a plan in your mind of what you plan to do for the 2 months. Keep your statement consistent during the interview. At the interview you don’t need to change it to 2 weeks.

      Hello Pratik,

      To apply for a visa, you will need the letter of invitation from the college in USA. You may also need some form of support from your parents since you are still in college. Use information on this page to begin your visa application process. http://www.ustraveldocs.com/

      The Visa Officer or Consular Officer will most likely ask you questions about the program you plan on attending and about yourself.

      Hi Jacks,
      You will not be granted a visa just to go and stay in the USA. Prepare to go and return to Ghana for now. On the other hand, you can prepare to go and study. Once your are done with your studies you can then decide to stay and work. What does the invitation letter you have say?

    Hi Admin,
    I am an IT professional seeking to go to the US for a Microsoft conference. All expense have been paid and hotel booked by my company. I also have a letter of invitation from Microsoft but unfortunately I was denied visa because I didn’t show I have ties with my country (also I failed to show or tell them I have those supporting documents with me because I wasn’t asked by the consular).
    My question is, should I be upfront about all the documents that I have in my upcoming interview and show it to them or wait until I am asked before presenting it or what is the preferred way to go about it without sounding or looking desperate. Other advice would be well appreciated.
    Thanks.
