Terms and Conditions for US Visa Application from Dubai

US Visa Document

Note that the following terms and conditions are applicable for all US visa applications, including the tourist visa. Follow them to the letter if you want your US tourist visa application to have a successful outcome:

  • It is important to note here that your visa application cannot be considered successful just because you’ve submitted all the required documents. The approval or rejection of a visa application depends entirely on the sole discretion of the US immigration authorities located in Dubai.
  • Note that in the case of visa rejection, your visa fee will not be refunded. Also, if your visa application was successful but you are unable to make use of it to fly to the US at that point, you will still lose your visa fee.
  • Your visa will be a single entry visa unless specifically mentioned as multiple entries. Your US visa will take four to five working days to process. If you plan on traveling to the US soon, be sure to apply for your visa much ahead of time.
  • Be totally honest with the visa authorities on your visa application. If the authorities manage to unearth any discrepancies in your visa application, they will reject your visa summarily. More than that, you will not be allowed to apply for a USA visa ever again in your life if your visa application has been rejected for the wrong reasons.
  • You must be careful not to take any mobile phone, makeup, liquids or any other object other than a pen and your papers to the consulate. Failure to comply with these rules might also affect your visa application.
  • Be sure to answer every question posed to you by the consulate in an even, modulated manner. Aggressive behavior and sneaky responses will be considered suspect by the visa authorities and your visa could be rejected summarily based on suspicion alone.
