I'm really frustrated that I need to go through all the trouble of getting a visa just to layover 3 hours in Miami. But since I'm going through all this pain, I don't get it why would anyone get the Transit visa when the Visitor Visa is the same price - $160 - and apparently I need to fill the same DS-160 (Although I guess the Interview at the Embassy would be different). But the advantage would be that I could visit US in the near future, instead of having to once again apply for a Visitor Visa.
Just to clarify, I hold a Brazilian passport but live in the UK (not a citizen though). Brazil apparently isn't in the ESTA scheme.
Would I be able to apply for the Visitor Visa even though my imminent reason for applying is for Transit?
Why is there a Transit visa for the same price?
