Russian Friend Applying for US Tourist Visa

Hello,

I have a Russian friend who lives in Moscow and is wanting to visit me in the states this summer. His interview date is in a week. I am very nervous about this process as I have heard it can be quite difficult. He just graduated from university, owns his own apartment, has close family, has a job with the university and is applying for a MA there to begin this fall. He has also travelled to several other Western European countries before, one being just last summer. I have written him an invitation letter specifying I would be financially responsible for him, provide housing, make sure he leaves at the designated time, etc.

Do you think he has a good chance at getting a tourist visa? Any encouragement would be greatly comforting!

Also, what types of questions do they usually ask in the interview for a tourist visa?

Thank you for any information you can give.

Why does he have to be financially dependent upon you?

IF you are girl. And inviting him to stay with you and visit. The officer can suspect him as a immigrant intent and he might not be able to get a visa.IF he has traveled many European countries then let him apply by himself without stating that you are going to support him.

Good Luck
