Documents from 1 to 6 must be presented when you will go for appointment at American Express or Speedex however documents from 7 to 13 are recommended for interview day. Please take all these documents when yo appear for an interview, they might not ask about these but you must possess it just in case.

Still take your bank statements with you whether you have enough money in it or not.
  9. If you are going to meet a company contact then an invitation letter is require which clearly state that they want to meet you and for what reason.
  10. If you are attending a conference/seminar that is related to your business then usually there is a fee which you pay to attend that conference. Take that receipt with you.

  13. If you have your own home or property or anything worth showing that can give assurance that you will come back to Pakistan, take it with you but they hardly see it because they know that getting a fake documents in Pakistan is not difficult and they can’t take the pain to check its authenticity, but still you should take it with you.

In case I have missed out any document or someone has any better suggestion feel free to comment.

    hi Admin,

    i am applying for a business visit for USA. i am working remotely with a startup in USA (for the past 1.5 year) and now my team is going to attend an accelerator program to boost our business. its a three month program and i need to be present there to make the most out of it. i have only 18 days left until the program starts though i can join in the middle of it. the plan is to visit there temporarily and work on the business plan to get more fundings for the business. and if we are successful ill come back and apply for worker visa to work there for a longer duration. my question is, are these reasons valid enough to get me a B-1 visa.

    secondly. to add more complexity to the situation, i am also getting a employment visa for dubai to work with another company as a backup plan. ill be getting that visa in 15-20 days. my second question is can i ask for my passport while the USA visa is being processed because ill be needing it to move to dubai. and lastly how much difficult it is to apply for USA visa while in dubai. thanks.

      Sorry for late reply, yes you can call back your passport during processing as processing time could take few months and whenever your USA visa will be ready, they will call back your passport again for visa stamping.

      Its not about eligibility, everyone can apply for a visit visa. Its embassy who will decide if you will get a visa or not.

    Admin !! with due humbleness and kindness i want to raise a issue with u .that i recently applied for B2 visa on the basis of disaster relief management Conference that will be held in washington D.C dallas on 17th november !!!!!! my 4 delegate members were refused and i was only granted 3 months visa !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…but my intentions were for 5 years multiple visa !! i will go on 10 or 12th of november…..the question i want to ask is that after coming back to pakistan !!!!! i will apply for b2 tourist visa for 5 years !!!!!!!! wot is the minimum duration of visa they can grant me ??? and wot will be my chances upon clean and clear arrival at pakistan

    • admin Post authorReply

      Dear Shah, there is no separate 5 years multiple entry visa. Its the same visa, they judge on the basis of person’s need and grant visa for the duration they like (usually 5 years). If you come back and apply for a tourist visa again, still they might not give you a multiple entry visa.
      one more thing, I have noticed people using lots of punctuations e.g. ? or ! at the end of a sentence. Ending a sentence with multiple punctuation is considered rude in writing ethics as it denotes yelling. I know you didn’t mean to yell at me but thought to let you know what !!!! means.

    I went to UK in 2003 as a student on a one year visa, I applied for work permit, then tried human rights case but all been refused, I stayed there till 2011 but I have never been illegal resident as my case was still with UKBA when I returned to Pakistan on May 2011 but at Heathrow they declared me an “OverStayer” anyhow.

    Now, I want to apply for USA Visa visa with my family as now I am a businessman here and earn enough money to afford my trip.

    I have to declare in the USA Visit visa online form that I have been to UK as there is a question in the form “Have you traveled to any country within the last five years”. Would the Over Stayer status in the UK have any negative effect on my application when I apply for US Visit visa?

      Dear Basharat, yes, you would need to declare that you was in UK and it completely depends on the visa officer on how he will take it however it is a negative point.

      Dear Ali, You can call some of the companies you want to visit and book an appointment with them, you can mention in your letter which companies you are intending to visit for business dealings.
      I don’t know anything about the chances.

      The process is same as visit visa however you would need to apply for B1 category and would need to mention the reason you are traveling for and the invitation letter you have received along with all the necessary documents. Read the post above ^^^

    Respected Admin,
    8 years ago i visited 6 countries, and I went Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia with visitor visa, and Korea, Hong Kong, China with business visa, and i have a refusal from Poland embassy. After a long time i want to apply B1 visa for U.S.A, and planned to exhibit as an exhibitor.
    We are three partners and last year export is 27000(US$) and Have strong personal bank statement, but confused what kind of questions they can ask mostly in this kind of situation. And exhibition date is 10.10.2016 so when should i apply for visa. Thanks

    • Admin Post authorReply

      Salam Sunny,
      You should apply as early as possible as sometimes they take few months before they issue you a visa. You just need to know all the details of the exhibition including date and everything. If your case is genuine, you will naturally know everything about your business and exhibition. You just need to be confident enough so they believe what you are saying is right.

    How long does it take to get a business visa processed after online application submission? I have to attend a conference between May 9th – 11th in Chicago IL. Wondering if I have enough time

      I am sorry for responding late, The time has passed now, the visa takes few months to process. Embassy doesn’t give a definite time.
