I applied for a B-1/B-2 visa in early October and was rejected. I am in a long distance relationship and my boyfriend studies in US. At that time I wanted to celebrate Christmas with him. I am in Germany right now but actually a Mongolian. Here is the interview:

Q: Good afternoon, English or Deutsch?
A: It doesn't matter, OK English.
Q: Why are you going to US?
A: Want to celebrate Christmas with my boyfriend.
Q: How long are you going to stay in US?
A: Approximately two weeks.
Q: What do you do here in Germany?
A: Going to study. I am not yet in a University but in a language course.
Q: How long were you here in Germany?
A: For three months now.

And he said that I was denied.

Now I am officially a student here in Germany and am living here for about eight months.

Do you think they will give me a visa this time?

P.S. Does the interview language matter, is German better?

  • Now i want to visit my boyfriend for my school break

I'm not familiar with US procedures, but I believe that they want to confirm that you'll go back to Germany.

  • If your German is good enough for the interview, that should be a big plus. It shows that you've put plenty of effort into fitting into German society.
  • If you are now accepted as a student, and if you have already earned credit points towards your BA or MA, that's another incentive for you to go back.
  • it is my first semester now and i dont have any earned credits
