Default Freelancer applying for B1

I wish to attend a conference in the US [ related to the industry I work in, will stay only for a week ] and applied for a B1

I have no intentions of doing any work on my visit to US , but would it be problem that I have a US client whom I work for from India ?

Thank you very much in advance !

You need to show significant ties to the home country. If they are convinced, you are in!

Good Luck!

Question

Hi,

Are you attending the conference on the invitation of your client?

Can you explain "contract certificates from clients, recent invoices etc"

VO is more interested in your current occupation, your ties to the country, how genuine you are to return back to your home country.

You need to give more information to get a proper response.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Rayoflight

P.S Be cool, confident, truthful and positive when you are attending the interview.

no, its a general conference where anyone from my industry can register and attend. i wont be meeting my clients or do any work

Quote:

I requested my clients to provide a certificate stating that I've been working with them since "so and so" , that i'm currently engaged in projects with them and that i will return to my country to continue work after attending the conference .kinda like a proof of contract + leave letter
i'm taking recent invoices[which has details of my work and how much i get paid per project ] as a proof that i'm getting regular work from my clients
