B1/B2 visitor visa


#1

Hi,

I have been on visitor visa to USA in 1989 & H1 visa from Nov 2009 to 3rd Feb 2010. I am planning to apply for visitor visa soon. What are the chances of getting a visa & should I & my wife apply together or only myself. I already have a social security number. What if one gets a job while on visitor visa in USA.

Regards

In general, it should be fine and you should be able to get visa easily as you have been there before and they have all of your record. If you have no overstays or any immigration related violations, it should be fine.
Getting a B1/B2 visa is quite straightforward, all they want to make sure you are going to come back after your visit. So, showing anything that indicates your ties back home would be good enough.

Thanks for the reply. What if I get a job while in USA on visitor visa ? Should me and my wife apply together. Any chances of rejection if I apply alone.

Getting a job offer does not mean you can work, you need to have proper work authorization, so need to file COS. Applying together is better, but does not make any difference for visa officer… Decision of visa is based on many things and hard to give a generic answer. People have all these pre-conceived notions on approvals and rejections, but does not work that…everyone has a perspective and may not be logical. All you should do focus on your intent to travel and submit / carry documentation as needed for the same and answer with confidence
