I mean, REAL interview experiences gathered from REAL B1/B2 applicants who successfully got their B1/B2 visa to travel to the USA.

Before I go further, let's understand one thing. What is B1 visa ? What is B2 visa ? What is B1/B2 visa ?

B1 VISA

B1 visa is for business. The use cases for B1 visa include attending to interests related to:-

A). Educational

B). Conference

C). Professional

D). Negotiating a contract 

E). Scientific

F). Settling an estate

G). Business convention

B2 VISA

B2 visa is for vacation/Tourism. The use cases for B2 visa include attending to interests related to:-

A). Tourism 

B). Vacation

C). Visiting friends or relatives

D). Seeking medical treatment

E). Participating in social events

F). Participating in a short recreational course of study that will not be used for credit toward a degree (for example, taking a cooking class while on vacation)

G). Participation in amateur events such as musicals, sports, contests, etc., as long as the participant is not being paid to participate.

B1/B2 VISA

At the discretion of the visa officer, you may be issued multiple B1/B2 visa if you’re going for both Business and non-business related purposes or if the visa officer decides that’s what you need. Example: if you were invited to attend a conference but you want to take sometime to visit a relative or friend after the conference. In that case, the visa officer may issue you a B1/B2 visa.  Indeed, most times, if you apply for either B1 or B2 visa, you may end up being issued both  B1/B2 visas automatically. This would enable you to attend to a business concern as well as go for tourism or visit friends and family. And that's why the B1/B2 interview questions overlap most times because they're more or less the same

If you or your company or your family want to go for a B1 or B2 visa interview at the US embassy or consulate, do yourself a favor by familiarizing yourself with past B1 and B2 visa interview questions and answers to learn how those who successfully got their B1/B2 visa in the past answered the interview questions. This cannot be over emphasized.

Again, what I want to present to you here is B1/B2 visa interview success stories from real people covering:-  B1/B2 conference visa interview questions and answers, Tourist visa interview questions and answers, B1/B2 visa interview questions for parents, Family-based visa interview questions, B2 visa interview questions for siblings. 

B1/B2 visa interview questions and answers 2023/ 2024 / B1/B2 visa interview questions and answers 2023/ 2024 PDF

Below is an example of REAL visa interview questions and answers shared by our clients (travellers) who SUCCESSFULLY got their B1/B2 visas at the US embassy or consulate. The list includes B1, B2 and B1/B2 applicants from many countries across the world, namely; Singapore, India, Ghana, United Kingdom, Nigeria, South Africa, Philippines, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, Botswana, Kenya, China, Brazil, etc.

The interview sessions comprise personal visit visa, business visit visa, group visit visa, family visit visa, etc, for reasons such as tourism, vacation, business, conference, wedding, sightseeing, etc. Again, all types of B1/B2 visa and any reason for visiting the USA that you’ll ever think of were covered. And as you read the interview transcripts, you’ll be able to tell whether it’s an individual or group or family interview. Enjoy!

We advise you to go through the questions and answers to learn how to answer yours. The interview is between the US Visa Officer and the B1/B2 visa Applicant. 

If you order the complete successful B1/B2 visa interview questions and answers PDF and you read carefully, you’ll see a pattern begin to emerge regarding the reason the visa officer approve visas. Try to understand that pattern so you can use it to your benefit. Once you learn it, (though it could be complicated sometimes) it means that you’ve learned how to answer the visa interview and your visa is guaranteed as long as you’re qualified. Again, you'll learn the pattern in the complete version of the B1B2 visa interview questions and answers PDF. Or if you also need the interview experiences of both those who were denied visa and those who got their visas approved, then you'll need the APPROVED plus DENIED B1/B2 visa interview questions and answers PDF. This would enable you see both sides of the coin. I usually tell every client who read it "go and pick your visa" and 99% of the time, they contacted me later to say that they indeed got their B1/B2 visa approved. It's highly recommended.

Now, let me show you an example of what's in the B1/B2 visa interview questions and answers PDF.

IMPORTANT: As you read along, you’ll see some sentences in BRACKET. Please note that the sentences in bracket are thoughts that the visa applicant thought in his/her mind during the interview or what they did or just for emphasis. Please take note of that.

B1/B2 visa interview questions and answers 2023/ 2024 / US business and tourist visa interview questions and answers 2023/ 2024 PDF

Visa officer: good morning

B1/B2 visa applicant: Hi, good morning

Visa officer: why do you want to go to the US?

B1/B2 visa applicant: to visit my close friend and sightsee (he typed something on his computer)

Visa officer: what do you do?

B1/B2 visa applicant: I am an IT support staff with XYZ institution (he typed again)

Visa officer: where do you want to go in the US?

B1/B2 visa applicant: First stop is to Ohio to see my friend but we have plans to visit other cities too

Visa officer: Have you travelled outside India before?

B1/B2 visa applicant: Yes, I’ve been to Nepal, Pakistan and Dubai (then, he checked my passport)

Visa officer: I am sorry, you do not qualify at this time.  (I picked up the blue paper he gave me).

B1/B2 visa applicant: (As I was about to leave, he picked my passport to give it back to me, looked up at his computer screen, then paused and said "oh wait a minute, something came up". My heart skipped a thousand beats as I exclaimed "wow!" and he started typing again and again on his computer (I wonder what they keep typing with those fast fingers). He kept trying to do something to my passport for a while then said "I am sorry, I am having a little issue with my system". At this point my soul was praying, then finally, he said "ok, here you go. Your visa has been approved". He handed me over the white paper to pick up my visa. I picked up the white paper and dropped the blue one that I earlier collected. 

At this point, I could only whisper a thank you. Don’t know if he was kidding about denying me at first or he actually saw something and changed his mind. Whatever it was, he really got me!)

Applicant's comment: 
I honestly do not know what these people look out for, it’s amazing how they do these things to decide who to approve or refuse visa. My advise is just state the truth. It’s better to be denied when you stated the truth, you know you’re qualified and won’t misuse the visa terms than to be denied if you cooked up stories

Our professional comment:
Though this applicant got his visa approved but it could have also been a rejection. The reason I've put up this interview transcript in first position is to give you an idea of how the US visa interview works. The decision to issue visa or to deny visa to an applicant is being decided by human and artificial intelligence software installed on the Visa officer’s computer.

END OF SAMPLE

NOTE: Don't assume that you've already learned everything you need to pass your B1/B2 visa interview just by reading the above examples. If you do so it would be like a child in kindergarten school assuming that he/she has already learned everything just because the teacher gave few examples on the chalkboard.

Example; let me tell you something that you haven't realized yet from the three B1/B2 visa interview examples that I gave above. If you read the first interview above attentively, you'll notice that the Visa officer by his human judgement already denied visa to the applicant. However, on the contrary, his artificial intelligence software algorithm overruled the Visa officer’s decision and popped up a message on the computer telling the Visa officer that the interview was indeed successful.

Keep this in mind because there are many factors that determine whether you get issued visa or not. Sometimes, you may be qualified but wrongly denied visa. Sometimes, you may also not be very qualified but still you'll get issued visa.
