Therefore, you have to prepare yourself to show them that you have reasons stronger to return your home country than remaining in the United States. Your chances of success will greatly increase if you prepare yourself with necessary documents and convincing answers of the anticipated questions of the visa officer. Always remember that incomplete or improper documentation is the leading cause of visa failure. So prepare yourself with perfect documents, especially your property documents, bank statement, income tax returns, family photographs and make sure nothing is missing. If your application was ever rejected, and you intend to apply for a second time, must consider the fact that consular officers do keep earlier records and he will compare your new documents against the earlier documents.

You should also mention whether you are a business owner or serving some employer.
