Visa's for Poland

Is there anyone here that has experienced getting a visa to visit the USA from Poland? My girlfriend seems to think its a very difficult process just to visit the US. From all my reading it is just like applying from anywhere else but I know some countries are more difficult than others to get authorization. This would just be for our first visit but we would like to go through the K1 visa eventually.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum! I'm moving your thread from the K-1 Process forum to the Europe & Eurasia regional forum (which encompasses Poland). Someone should be along there to answer your question.

90% of people get their tourist visa without any issues in USA. The question is: does she have any ties to Poland? Has anyone of her family ever abused immigration law? If she has family staying illegaly in the USA that might be a red flag, since the officer can assume she might want to join them. Normally, really the vast majority of people get their visas without any problems.

The rules are: be confident, never lie, always tell the truth but don't be overly talkative, just answer the questions sincerely
