They shall ask you a lot of questions regarding yourself and your travel to USA.Answer all questions with honesty.Chances of renewing your VISA are brighter if one has travelled to USA a couple of times and hasnt over stayed.Also make sure you mention even the approximate time/date of time to USA in near future,even if you are not certain ,give them a rough estimate.It is a long form ,fill it with patience and satisfaction as it shall go a long way in issuing you the desired VISA.After you have filled the form DS 160,submit the form after you have electronically signed it.It shall also ask you to keep a passport sized photo ready but it depends if it shall need the same to fill the DS 160 form or not. ,dont worry if it doesnt ask you for the same while filling the form.After submitting the form,it shall give you a couple of confirmation numbers to print out,so keep them with you for future reference.Make an account ,a separate account on ustraveldocs.com using the same email id as previously mentioned in the DS 160.Save the username and password and keep them with you.Now enter that username and password and create/update your profile using the same credentials as used in DS 160.Keep moving forward in filling the form page by page after updating the profile .It shall ask a few questions from you in order to make sure if one is eligible for dropbox/interview waiver etc.Now this is an important step of the process.Make sure before hand ,that if you want to be eligible for dropbox/interview waiver read the couple of instructions as mentioned on the website ustraveldocs.com before filling the forms and also make sure your current VISA is still valid untill the DATE you deposit the needed documents at the dropbox site,if at all you are worthy of dropbox facility.Towards the end of the form it shall ask you to pay the fee and enter the receipt number upon which you can pay the fees through required media ,however you deem comfortable,though all options to pay the fees are mentioned on the website.It takes somes 24–48 hrs for the fees to confirm the receipt number,so kindly wait.But keep checking the status of your payment,once done enter the number and complete the form.If you or any of your family members are applying together under identical criteria in the same category/same conditions you can apply together as well as an option for the same is present in the form.Also you can apply separately,no worries.Now,you can drop off the required documents(make sure you carry the required documents as mentioned on the site or in your email-passport/passports,photo,DS 160 confirmation,bank receipt etc.) to the drop off locations.The drop off locations are mentioned on the website ustraveldocs.com and one can go and submit the documents easily. Also it is not necessary for the applicant to be personally present to deposit the documents. Any person with govt. id (aadhar card,driving license) can go and submit the documents for the same.Untill this date/ day of submission of documents,your VISA has to be valid for effective process and good chances of renewal.It shall there after take 3–5 business days for further notification in case you are still needed for consular interview or not,but in most cases if your DS 160 is correctly and honestly filled ,there occurs no problem.Also the VISA center shall hand over to you a document for you to keep it in safe.That is pretty much all in all in the process of renewal of US VISA in your parent country from where one previously got his/her VISA issued in the same categoryI Hope you find useful and handy.

How was your US visa interview experience?
I’m sharing my experiences (step by step) of attending the Interview on 6th July,2023 as follows.On the Day of Interview, there was a huge rush at the US Consular Office. Our Interview was there at 8.45 AM. But we (me & my colleague) reached there around 8.15 AM. There were 2 queues at the beginning i.e. 8.15 AM & 8.30 AM bannered Queues. Then 8.15 A.M bannered queue was replaced with 8.45 A.M bannered queue at exact 8.45 A.M. After 5 min, a person came who instructed us to keep Passport out from the Clear file along with the VISA Confirmation Letter & Appointment Letter, which were stamped by very previous day in VAC Office of Chennai. With getting ready of all these documents, the queue started moving. There were many securities –1st Lady Security: Please go ahead2nd Gent Security: Do you have Mobile phone?Ans-No,Q - do you have any electronic gadget?Ans: No,Q- please remove your watch and keep it inside your file.Ans: Ok, Thanks3rd Lady Security: Do you have Money Purse?Ans: NoQ- Ok please pull the door to enter inAfter entering into the huge heavy iron door, a security check team were there. They told to keep that file in a container provided by them & put in the automatic panel like there in Flight security check-up. By the mean time they told me to enter in a metal detective door by following the queue. After that one lady scanned all my dresses with a hand scanner, instructed me to go left to collect my file. I collected my file & pulled another door to enter inside a hall. A tall person requested me to sit down on the Chair present in the 1st line. In each stage there were CC TVs. After 5 min, he instructed to start moving by following the queue. Really, it was like opening the hidden doors. I was following the queue. Till that point also I was following to my Colleague who was there in front of me. After that all the people get inside to another separate building which was located around 300-400m from this building.There were around 3-4 securities who guided us the path to enter to the 1st phase of the building where 2 queues were there to check those documents kept outside of the file previously. For me, a foreigner (male, who was there inside the glass cabin) requested the Passport & an Indian (who seated outside of the Glass cabin) asked rest 2 documents to check. Then both of them given the 3 documents & show me the next hall where the actual Interview was happening. At that time, I was followed by a lady in the same queue & my colleague was there just before that lady in the same queue. Around 45 min passed after reaching the Consular Office from outside.Then a lady security was there who allowed the queue till my colleague & let us to seat & wait for some time. After 5 min again from the 1st person (lady) to follow the same queue. More 15 min we were there in that queue. Some observations done by me while standing in that queue as follows:There were around 12-14 Glass Chambers (separated), where all foreigners were sitting inside as the Interviewer’s. In each cabin there were a mike (for us) & loudspeaker (to get their voice correctly). I was really surprised to heard Tamil conversion going on in one of the cabins between a foreigner (male) & a 70 years old man. In another cabin, a beautiful lady was taking the Interview of a Vaastu Specialist (male, around 57 years). The Q & A were as follows:Specialist: Hello, Good MorningInterviewer: Hello, how are you doing?Specialist: Fine Ma’amInterviewer: What are you doing?Specialist: I’m a Vaastu Specialist.Interviewer: What is Vaastu?Specialist: Vaastu is like doing the forecasting by analyzing different scenarios before building a home.Interviewer: What is your Purpose of visit then?Specialist: My Client wants to buy a home in US, Virginia, So, they called me…. (2-3 mins)Interviewer: Sorry I can’t give you the VISA. Please take your Passport.Really the lady Interviewer was so strict. After that the lady security assigned my colleague in the same line where the Vaastu Specialist’s interview done. He was waiting for his turn as another person’s interview was going by the same Interviewer. Then suddenly the security assigned me into the 1st chamber of left corridor & requested me to stand beyond a yellow marked line in that chamber, because another person’s interview was going on.While standing on that yellow waiting line, I saw a lady was taking the Interview for a person (male), So, I was waiting for my turn. I tried to encounter all my confidence to clear the Interview & was praying God to get the success. I just saw the person got success in the Interview & wished to the Interviewer with a big Thank you. Now it’s my turn. She indicated me to come.Me: Hi, Good MorningInterviewer: Good Morning, Passport please..hey what is the purpose of your visit?Me: (Gave my passport through the path provided in the glass chamber) The purpose of my visit..Interviewer: Hey can you please come closer to the mike because you aren’t audible to me.Me: Sure Ma’am. Thank you.. (After reaching at the mike) My purpose of the visit is to gather all the business requirements for the phase 2 of the audit application, what we have designed so far.. to understand the business. Then come back to India, sit with my technical Team & give a proposal.Interviewer: Ok..What is the Audit Application?Me: Audit Application, what we have designed for all the Auditors who are working at ships. This application eliminates all those traditional manual processes with pen & papers with the automated one. So, that they can do audits & generate certificates through our application. The 1st phase of this application has already completed, now it’s the time of second phase because of which different people from different places are coming to take part in the discussion which will be held from July 16 onwards. I’m going there to gather the requirement for phase -2 to understand the business.Interviewer: What is your Designation?Me: I’m working as a Business Analyst in BSOL Systems Private Limited.Interviewer: What is this B.S.O.L?Me: Oh.. It’s my company. Business Solutions, a marine IT Industry, where 123 is one of the Clients.Interviewer: What is this 123?Me: Oh 123?

(I was so happy because she didn’t return the passport & congratulate me)So, this is all about my experiences. I received my Passport from Bangalore Consular office after 5 days. For the passport collection, I got the message from the VISA Consular office. Please note that while collecting your passport, please take any of your original Govt. ID Card like Aadhar Card, PAN Card, DL, etc.Hope sharing my experiences will help you a lot to crack you US VISA Interview.All the Best!!!
I am from the Philippines and never been out of the country. What do I need to do in order to get approved on getting a US touri
Nowadays it is easier to obtain appointment for visa interview.These are what I did when i had mine.Go to the US Embassy website and choose what type of visa. This would be B1/B2 visa.Fill up DS-160 form - this is the form that would contain all the information they would need. You do not need to complete it in one seating because you can save it and go back to it to complete or edit.You have to upload a visa picture. Follow guidelines on how to have a US VISA ID picture.Once the form is completed the next step is payment of VISA fee. Usually it is with BPI bank. After payment (not sure how much now) the bank will give you a “code” that you will enter on the website. BTW you have to create an account so you can go back to it from time to time.Upload the proof of payment. Then the site will direct you to set up your visa interview schedule. Choose the date.Reminders on the interview: BE ON TIME. NO PHONES OR ANY ELECTRONIC DEVICES ALLOWED. I MADE A MISTAKE HERE BECAUSE I FORGOT I HAD A USB STICK WITH ME. I HAD TO GO OUT AND THROW IT IN THE THRASH.BRING ALL DOCUMENTS WITH YOU. MAKE SURE YOUR PASSPORT IS VALID 6 MONTHS BEFORE THE DATE OF INTENDED TRAVEL. DRESS PROPERLY, BE DECENT. TELL THE TRUTH. BY NOW THE EMBASSY HAS ALREADY CONDUCTED A BACKGROUND CHECK ON THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED WITH THE FORM YOU FILLED UP.There is no need to show any documents as to property, bank account, etc.. since your work history is already included in the DS160 form.You just have to prove to the consul that you have no intention of overstaying so you have reason to go back to the Philippines.In my case some of the questions were; who am I living with and if I see my kids all the time.Be respectful. Clear in your answers.GOOD LUCK
What are some tips for selling your home, "for sale by owner"?
When selling FSBO homes, you should be well prepared and willing to invest a significant time and effort. Below are the steps and tips for a successful for sale by owner.Prepare Your Home for SaleThe first and most important step when selling FSBO homes is getting the investment property ready for the market. You want potential buyers to love the property. Fix and take care of any major issues that you might find before putting the property on the market for sale. Get your home inspected to help you recognize hidden issues that you may not be aware of (which could stop a sale).These issues can include things like pet damage, carpet stains, damage to the yard, etc. another tip is to conduct improvements that add value to the investment property such as a kitchen remodel, new carpets, and landscaping. Before putting the “for sale” sign out, clean the house from top to bottom and keep it that way throughout the selling process.For sale by owner’s buyers have high expectations and the last thing they want is to buy a home that requires a lot of improvementsPrice Your HomeBy far, overpricing the home is the number one reason why most FSBO homes fail to sell. Homeowners find it difficult to price their property due to the personal attachment. That’s why you need to conduct a thorough market analysis! Get an idea of selling prices for similar homes (both that have already been sold recently, and those under contract) and then set your selling price accordingly.Market Your HomeThe next tip is to advertise your home in a way that gets it exposed to as many potential buyers as possible. You can market your FSBO home by creating brochures, putting ads on Craigslist, or sharing ads on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. Focus on online marketing as over 90% of buyers find their investment properties online. Posting quality pictures that attract potential buyers and highlighting special qualities when marketing FSBO homes will also lead to success.Show Your HomeSet aside time to show the home to as many potential buyers as possible. It can be difficult at times to schedule a showing or an open house, but you must keep in mind that every viewing you miss is a lost opportunity. Make sure you can be around to accommodate the buyer’s schedule NOT yours!Make the home appealing and set a good atmosphere that will keep people relaxed and happy while showing the home. Presentation is key!Close the TransactionBefore closing the transaction, ensure that a potential buyer is prepared and capable of affording your home. The best way of doing this is through making sure the buyer is pre-approved for a mortgage or running a credit check. In addition, an escrow or title company is needed to take care of the closing process since a real estate agent isn’t hired to do so.Additional Tips for Selling FSBO HomesEvery real estate market is a little different, but some things are pretty consistent like the fact that people like to buy homes in warmer weather. Therefore, the best time to consider selling the home is typically spring.If your home is priced right, you will typically get an offer in 30–45 days. If you don’t receive any offers, or if a buyer refuses to pay your price, you might want to lower the price.If you got an offer when you still haven’t found a replacement home, consider asking the buyer for a contingency offer. This ensures that you won't end up homeless.Seeing as when selling FSBO homes you won’t get a real estate agent’s assistance, the best thing to do is to find a real estate attorney to take care of the legal details of the transaction.Hope these help!
