B2 visa for boyfriend

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend would like to come visit me in the US since I am not able to visit him this year due to starting a new job.  Is it ok to say during interview that the purpose is to visit his girlfriend?  He doesn't wish to stay in the US, he has a good job back home.  Thanks for your help!

Of course it is, it is the truth.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

yes, it's fine for him to apply for a visitor visa to come to visit you.  Question is will he one? 

 

1. I assume your boyfriend is from Ghana (from the details of your profile). Ghana has a high rate of Visa denial

2. Are you guys in the system for a k1 visa? If so then his chances of securing a visitor visa are not so easy. 

 

Good luck

Yes, he is from Ghana.  I’m aware of the denial statistics, but he still wants to try for B2. He has traveled to other countries with work, not to the US though.  

We have not filed K1.  Thanks for your help.

This is normal but it's not easier for him to predict, because most of the people used to traveled to other countries for the purpose of to come to U.S

But now all of those strategies people used to get a visa from U.S consular is now opening them eyes.It is better to him to preparing himself  as much as he can,his job documents,length of the years he works with his job and any other documents that can convince them..
