How should I answer the questions?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a Russian female that will be heading to my visa interview on Wednesday. I am hoping to spend about one month in the US in June. Unfortunately, I applied last year and was rejected based on lack of ties to my home country. I have been at my job much longer now (a year and 7 months instead of just seven months) and have been promoted twice since my employment has started. I am just very worried that I wont get the visa again. How did you answer the questions? I know there are probably no "right" answers, but I'm sure there are wrong ones. I really truly have dreamed of visiting the US since I was a child. If you can help me at all, I'd truly appreciate it.

The right answer is the truth. Any lie will get you banned from the US forever for lying, called misrepresentation. There is no secret formula, just answer the questions and tell the truth.

I'm sorry, I think you misunderstood me. I didn't mean I was going to lie. Last year I was thinking of trying again, so I came to this site. When hearing about my answer to why Im coming to the us (visit friends and practice English) someone had told me that I had lost it because I had said to practice English. I was wondering which ways the consulate is looking for me to answer the question.

There is nothing wrong with coming here to learn/ practise English, but a young, single Russian female will always have difficulty getting a tourist visa.

Have you travelled before, say to Europe? That seems to help a lot.

They are asking you to tell the truth. You are asking about lying. I don't mean that in a mean way, but you are basically saying, I told the truth and they denied me, what "story" should I tell to get the visa. Just tell the truth.

Practicing English can be done online, in England or in other countries in the world. Why do you need to go to the US over any other place? That is the question you should answer. But, despite all that, the reason you need to go to the US is far less important than all the reasons you should return to your country. Focus on that, and good luck.
