Weird experience! I didn’t get B1 VISA in April 2013. I applied in 2007 for B1, my company was 2 months old, 2 employees, had 1 invitation letter mentioning that I’ll stay at client’s home because I had good terms with him and he wants to help me.
I wanted to meet 4 clients for major discussion and defining the scope of project. I booked hotel, bought air ticket (to save money because interview date and my travel date has 1 week difference).

Ans: Very good morning
C: Why you want to go to the USA?
