ME: Sorry I was nervous, I did not purchase I got it from my dad who passed away back in 2009. VO: OK, you told me you got friends in the US where are they? ME: No maam, no friends in the states I'm going for a week of vacations! VO: Do you have a work letter and pay stubs? ME: sure (handled em to the VO) VO: VO looks VO: How much do you earn in USD? ME: $5K month mam VO: OK, good VO: You been abroad before?

VO: I'm sorry I cannot give you a VISA today ME: whats the reason?VO: Handles 214B paper ME: OK, thanks, can i request a Waiver? VO: No waiver is needed for you! ME: Can i re apply? VO: Yup... ME: Have a nice day VO: You too I plan on re-applying, I do know I have a pretty solid Job in my country, I do own a house, I have been working for 8 years in a stable and pretty well paid job, I think the VO was not convinced and I probably could have explained here the places I was planing to visit when she asked where and why I was going to the states... What do you guys think? Think there is a reason to overcome the 214B? Thanks! Link to comment
