So here are my details:
APPLYING FOR USA TOURIST VISA (B2)
ANNUAL INCOME – 5 LPA
SPONSOR – MYSELF
Interview went as below:
After greeting VO (didn’t greet back or smiled),
VO – Pass your passport
VO: Have you ever traveled other country before?
ME: Yes mam, I went to Maldives last year
VO: With whom?
ME: with my office mates
VO: what are your friends doing in USA (mentioned about visiting my friends in ds 160) ME: Studying Masters at XXX university
VO: where do you work ?
VO; How much expense you are expecting ?
ME: around 2 lacs out of which i have already paid for my flights and hotel stay.
Everything was going well until she asked next question.
VO: How much funds do you have ?
ME: Mam, i have 2.5 lacs in my savings account and 1.5 lacs in RD.
AT THIS MOMENT, SHE GAVE A VERY CREEPY AND DISAPPOINTED LOOK AT ME
VO: So are you going to put all your savings for this trip ?ME: Yes mam as i was planning and saving for this trip since long back and i so wanted to visit disney world and universal studios in Orlando.
SORRY YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE THIS TIME…HANDED ME A 214(B)
Can you please help me identifying exactly what went wrong ? i am thinking its only because of my low funds.
Also, please suggest how early i can apply and this time i am thinking to show around 10 lacs with my father as my sponsor (will change this in new ds 160) ? Will it help or what are the chances for getting it next time if i do this.
THANKS A LOT IN ADVANCE.
