Hello,

I have a visa appointment booked for mid April in Belfast, I have previously applied for and was granted a ten year B1/B2 Visa in 2007 despite declaring two minor traffic convictions in 2002. I have had no arrests or convictions since. I have visited the US twice on the previous VISA without issue. I have return flights booked for my next trip, and hotel paid and a family to return to in England.

Is there any reason anyone can see why I wouldn't get one again?

Just trying to convince myself the financial outlay is going to be worth it haha.

Anyone here or anywhere else on the internet can only speculate: it is impossible to say with any certainty what will happen in a specific case.

But, working only on what you have told us here, I see no reason why you shouldn't get a visa. And if your traffic convictions are as minor as you suggest...and you didn't need a waiver of ineligibility last time.... I can't see that you'll need a waiver of ineligibility this time.

No waiver needed last time, so I'm staying positive all will be good. Thanks for your words. I hear one of the main factors is they want to know you'll be leaving the country in good time, so hopefully the return flight will be fair proof of that 😎

They, like all countries, want to feel sure about that, of course.

But the US Embassy's advice is actually:

If you require a visa, we recommend that you apply well in advance of your intended travel date and do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until you have been issued a visa and are in receipt of your passport..'

https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/tourism-visitor/processing-times/

so one can assume they don't expect to see proof of a return flight booking.

No indeed, but I guess it can't hurt I suppose!

Thanks, KLines. Very pleased (though not surprised) that you got your visa without a waiver....and very pleased you were able to take up an interview cancellation!

Enjoy your trip! :-)
