I hope someone can assist me. Last year I applied for a B1 visa. A US company I worked for invited me for training. I went for the interview and I was refused. I was asked why I was going, who was paying, would I be visiting other places besides those mentioned, and I said yes. I am 31, single, I got a job as a software tester and I have my own property and look after my parents.
So the second time around I applied and the officer asked me what changed overnight and I did not lie to him. I told him, well sir I am invited by the company for training and we went back and forth in a polite way. Eventually he said it was approved and stated his only going to give me a 2-week visa. When I got the visa it was 3 months, which is the minimum B1, with an annotation. So when I got to the USA, the officer stamped it and added an extra 3 months.
I was there for the required period and came back home, did not overstay.
Now I am working for a new company.
- I have property.
- I want to visit a friend and attend festival in the USA.
- I got an invitation letter.
- I have a return ticket.
- I have a letter from work.
- I have letter from college, as I am still studying.
- I have a letter from my parents.
- I am single.
Would this be an issue if I applied for a B2 visa? I only need 1 week in USA then I must return.
