Lol... its true... just when you think you have it sorted out with the consulate, there comes another round of convincing at your POE, but its not as bad if you have eberything in order.
Its just that it never ends for a non-resident.

On an unrelated note but contd from what she said, Even if you get a visa, it does not guarentee you entry into the country. You can be denied entry at your POE (Point of Entry) where the usual threat checks are done with their databases.

A visa for any country is not a right to entry, it is a permission "to apply for entry at a port", i.e. the immigration officer always has ultimate authority to decide on whether to permit you or not

Most people do enter the US (or other countries) with a visa as long as they have some funds, are not too shabbily dressed, do not fool around at the counter, and (for the US) dont say stuff that shows intent to move to the US permanently.

I read about an Aussie tourist who was denied entry after he joked he might end up marrying an American girl during his visit...

Have you never applied for a visa before Exphat? You sound a little on edge, it's JUST a visa. You obviously do not know anyone who has had to wait months on end to just get a response about their US visa application. After 9/11, the whole visa process literally took months for people from the Middle Eastern. I find it quite amusing that you're so edgy when it hasn't even been a week.

You've already hijacked this thread but asking Creative4art if the US consulate is really good on their timelines is like asking me to translate Chinese to Arabic...I suck at both! Unless Creative4art works for the US consulate, how would he able to give you a definite answer?

Take a chill pill, sit back and relax. You cannot influence the US consulate's decision at this point unless someone from the Consulate is on this forum reading your posts.

Looks like somebody woke up on the mean side of the bed.
All he's trying to do is to have some idea if an oppurtunity that he has wont slip away. Granted hijacking the thread isn't a good approach, but you do not have to be disrespecting an honest query or be narrow about it.

Exphat, what I meant is, they are good with assessing stuff on or before their set timelines. I have had friends who went through a similar thing and came out fine. So just hope that it turns out soon and check your spam folder too.

Laterz.

This was posted last night and being eager/restless about a US visa on a public forum is not the way to go. Good on you for being reassuring but it doesn't really help, the guy needs to know that hijacking a thread and asking the same question over and over again is quite pointless.

while these are no hard and fast rules, its generally not considered good forum etiquette to enter a forum and post mostly questions, (quite a few of them edgy ones) on the same topic without participating in other stuff.

We all ask stuff now and then, but it helps to not restrict your posts to only questions so that it doesnt feel like a press conference...
