Hi VJ Members,

My father will be applying for a visit visa to US in a couple of months. Last year in May he applied for a visit visa and was denied because he could not show strong ties with the country of his residence.

This time around he should be able to show strong ties by showing the evidence of the property he owns and the bank balance. He did not have any bank account last year so we had to set up a new account and he has been maintaining the account for past few months.

My question is, does he have to show account balance for the past 3 months or 6 months?

Appreciate your help in advance.

There is really no specified timeframe. Can he prove that he has legit source for the money (like he saved it from his income)? Coz the Us embassies are aware of show moneys.

A bank account isn't a veyr good tie to home, because it would be easy to transfer the money to a US account, should he stay illegally.

Thanks for your response. He is going to show his property and bank account, he is semi-retired. Any advice is highly appreciated. :)

Thanks for your response. So what do you suggest then?

There's no bit of paper anywhere that can guarantee he'll return home. He can take proofs of funds and property but it's quite likely they won't even be looked at.

All that can be suggested is the simplest thing, he goes to the interview and he answers the questions he is asked honestly and truthfully.

Then it's all up to if the interviewing officer believes him or not.

I would love to be able to say there's a sure way of guaranteeing a successful interview but there isn't.

If there was then it would make many members of this forum ecstatically happy to share it as the current system concerning tourist visas causes a lot of heartache to many people on here who miss their loved ones who're unable to visit.

I have had the same bank account for decades, I think they closed the Branch about 20? years ago, not that it matters as I do everything on line.
