I am a freelance Graphic Designer from Malaysia. I work from home for almost a year now. I have a fixed client which is a company in California. I would like to visit the US and my client in Los Angeles this year. I am concern about the visa interview on my working status and proof of income since they are from US. How do I show proof that I will return home and will not engage in any work activities while visiting my client, and the purpose is solely to build a strong relationship and understanding of the company.
I intend to return to my home country since I depend on daily free prescriptions from the government hospital which I cannot afford in the US.
intent to return to ones home country because of dependence on daily free prescriptions from the government hospital which is not affordable in the US is one proof
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
You may want to consider looking at a B-1 instead of a B--2.. our office has done many consular-based B-1s based on temporary business-based travel. They key is to show that you are engaging in one of the enumerated allowed activities under the B-1, and that you have sufficient ties abroad. The key is strong presentation of the case.
