Dear all,

Good day to you!

Could you please advise me how could I obtain family's (husband, wife and a daughter of 2 and half year) tourist visa of USA?

1. I do not have any sponsorship from USA so how much liquid money I have to show to embassy?
2. Do I need to book a hotel room before embassy interview?
3. Is it easier to find a job in New York?

Many thanks in advance.

Jatinder :)

For a tourist visa, you only need to have a travel itinerary and show that you're set up to return back home after your visit (best to keep it to under -well under - 90 days). You only need to have enough money to pay for your visit - i.e. hotel, meals, souvenirs, etc.

But your question #3 opens up all sorts of issues. A tourist visa isn't generally for finding a job, and if they think that's your real reason for going to the US, you'll be turned down. Finding a job in New York is not terribly easy, though it depends on your line of work. But even if you do find a job, you'll have to return back home while your new employer handles the visa, if you expect a visa that will allow you to work.
Cheers,
Bev

Finding the job will not be the big problem, but finding a job that will qualify for a work visa will be a Big Problem.
