Default My visa experience

I am Amr from Egypt. I had my B1\B2 visa from us embassy in cairo, Egypt when i was applying to an elective in uab som on 2013. at first they were requiring j1 visa then made it b1\b2. I had the interview with my freind who was travelling with me and thanks God we both got accepted for the visa. At 1st we had to fill a visa application at embassy site, get an interview appointment and prepare all the papers. We pay in Egypt in Cib bank and get a receit which is an important document besdies the online application which we print with us and the special embassy photo and of course a valid passport. You also need a strong tie to your country that you are coming back like a current bank account statement. And of course also your acceptance letter from the university you applied for. It is better to get an early appointment and go early not too formaly. Just be confident , dont lie ,be honest. It is a matter of luck, some get rejected and apply again and they know reasons for rejection. some takes time for configurations.
The visa is valid for 5 years ,multiple entry. You get to Us by the visa, the officer gives you 6 months stay and you have to return to your country but you can go again as long as the visa is valid.

Good luck
Amr Shimi
