You probably already know that if you are traveling to the US for less than 90 days, you could be eligible to do so without a VISA. It is all thanks to ESTA or the electronic system for travel authorization. The country you are from does matter, too. However, if you are traveling for more than 90 days, you are going to need a VISA for entering the US. You want to take care of everything in advance and make sure that you have all of your ducks in a row. To be completely prepared, here are some tips to help you when applying for that USA VISA.
Are you going to be a student in the US? If so, you want to be able to articulate well why you want to study in the US. Additionally, you need to make sure that you talk about ties to your home country. If you don’t do those two things, you can be rest assured that you will be denied for a VISA. Be very concise, and make sure you have any supplemental documentation that you need in order to take care of the business at hand.
Do you have any dependents? If so, you need to make sure that they are provided for while you are gone. You have certainly made arrangements if you are going to be leaving the country, but you are going to have to be able to articulate those arrangements. Also, no matter what questions you are asked, be sure that you maintain a positive attitude. You might be wondering why you are going to be grilled so quickly during an interview. It’s because essentially, when it comes to the US VISA process, the government wants to know if you want a travel VISA or if you are wanting to immigrate to the US. Those are two different things.
