I am from India, working in Software Industry

Here is my information

3. Am also working as Part time/freelance for US Start-up,  This company invited me to participate in this program for 3 months and they will reimburse my travel + accommodation cost on receipt submission.


Now I am planning to come to US on business visa for 3 months training for start up company, So i am going to apply for 3 months leave in my full time company as i said above in #2.


My Questions

1. What documents i need to take for India consular interview?

2. How do i convenience to US Consulate about my freelance and full time work?

3. How can I tell to consulate that current full job is  linked with your visit?

4. US consulate do any verification with my current employer as it cause concern to me.

You can NOT work for the US company while here on a business visa.

For the B1, ALL income has to be from a foreign employer.

Abuse of the B1 will result in lots of problems for you. And if you lie, as you seem to intend, you will get banned for life!

Rule #1: NEVER NEVER NEVER lie to an immigration official.
