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. Contact @aspomtravels or @aspombirthservices 08149906605 for professional Pre-interview session.

  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?

  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?

These 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.

Sample US Visa Questions

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.
