I haven't tried applying for a US B2 Tourist Visa yet as my case is slightly complicated, as I'm not flying back to my home country but instead, I'm flying to a third country to further my studies as a Master's student. I have been in the US before, as an F-2 Visa holder, and even have a bank account there but I left after my divorce.
I'm actually very apprehensive about trying for it, as I've heard horror stories that if you don't get your B2 Tourist Visa, that's it, say goodbye to visiting the US in this lifetime. I've also read online that it might complicate your travels to other countries. Is any of this true?
