At my interview I was asked several questions

  1. Why do you want to go to the US

I said I want to go as tourist, I want to take my 6yrs daughter to Disneyland & my son to universal studio.

  1. Have you traveled before with your family?

I said yes, I had traveled to Singapore & Malaysia with my family

  1. What do you do for living?

I said I'm a builder. I purchase property & construct them and sell them.

  1. Do you have any one in the US?

No, I don't know anyone there

  1. Do you live with your parents?

I said yes, I live with them in the same address.

  1. How many employees do you have?

I have three employees, one is handling accounts, one is handling sales, one is handling administration.

Then she sees my travel history in my passport & said you are qualified for the visa & kept my passports. Yet I then got my passports back with letter 214b so I'm shocked, why she didn't refuse at the interview?

    The reason for what? Taking your passports and saying you're qualified for a visa? That's very much the opposite of what people usually ask here. – Henrik - stop hurting Monica Aug 6 at 8:50

    One assumption would be that a reason to deny you the visa was identified after the interview. – Traveller Aug 6 at 9:17

    There could have been a clerical error, though it's probably unlikely, and a lot more unlikely that they would admit it. Maybe try to call them to see if that could be the case, telling them you were told you qualified and are thus surprised to have been refused after all. Remember to stay calm and polite even if they are not very helpful. – jcaron Aug 6 at 11:28

    @Kawal Kohli Could you have misheard? Perhaps what was said was “you aren’t qualified”? Said quickly, it’s quite easy to hear a positive rather than a negative. – Traveller Aug 6 at 11:35

    What did the letter exactly say ? – Hilmar Aug 6 at 11:45
