UK Business visitor visa

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am based in UK and nationality is not british . I have checked us embassy page and understand I have to apply for visa .

I understand I have to fill a form in and then call to make an appointment which can take up to 1 month or more. My job interview is urgent and really hard to wait one month for this and further few days while this is processed.

I have read you can apply for expedited processing or in another way urgent appointment , is this possible?

I think I need B1 visa as business visitor( job interview) . Do I need to have my hotel and airline ticket all booked ?

I don’t want to book it as I don’t know when I will get the result.

Thanks

You can contact the embassy and ask to be called if there is a cancelation.

Is the employer you are interviewing with aware of the requirements for getting you a work visa? If they are a well known company with immigration lawyers on staff, they may be able to do something.

Nothing to lose trying for an early interview, is this job in the US or UK?

Apply and part of the process will be to book an appointment.

If you are applying for a job requiring odd visits to the US the ability to do so seems rather important.
