    Answered . In addition to the very useful information in the previous response, note that some of the evidence that frequently is useful to supply to the consulate in support of a B-1 nonimmigrant visa includes: evidence of a temporary leave from a job in the home country; evidence of home ownership or a residential lease in the home country; banking/credit card relationships in the home country; immediate relatives will remain behind in the home country; etc.

    Answered . He will need to fill out a form called the DS-160 and go to an interview at the consulate or embassy. The DS-160 can be filled out and submitted online here: http://islamabad.usembassy.gov/non-immigrant_vi.... The official interviewing your friend will be looking for the following requirements:

    -The purpose of his trip is to enter the U.S. for business, pleasure, or medical treatment;
    -That he plans to remain for a specific, limited period;
    -Evidence of funds to cover expenses in the United States;
    -Evidence of compelling social and economic ties to Pakistan; and
    -That he has a residence in Pakistan as well as other binding ties that will insure his return abroad at the end of the visit.

    You can send your friend a letter of invitation to support the above.

    Best wishes,
