Daily Life - Applying for a Visa (C0043)

A: So, you’re applying for a B2 visa, where is your

final destination and what’s the purpose of your

trip to the United States?

B: I’m going to visit my brother; he’s just had a baby.

He lives in Minneapolis.

A: And how long do you you plan to remain in the

United States?

B: I’ll be here for approximately three weeks. See,

here’s my return ticket for the twenty-sixth of

March.

A: And, who is sponsoring your trip?

B: My brother, here, this is an invitation letter from

him. I will stay with him and his family in their

home.

home country.

B: Well, I own a house; actually, I’m leaving my dog

there with my neighbors. I have a car at home,

and oh, my job! I’m employed by Tornel as an

engineer. Actually, I only have three weeks’ vacation, so I have to go back to work at the end of

March.

A: And what evidence do you have that you are financially independent?

B: Well, I do have assets in my country; like I said,

I own a house, and see, here’s a bank statement

showing my investments, and my bank balance.

A: I’m sorry, sir, we cannot grant you a B2 visa at

this time, instead, you are granted a resident visa!

Congratulations, you are the millionth person to

apply for a visa! You win! Congratulations!
