Got my O-1B interview coming at the Consulate next week.

Just wondering if anybody has ever been denied a visa at that stage and why?

    O1 is risky for sw engineers as it is abused so denials are becoming more common.

      By the way your rhetoric sound eerily similar to how Trump is fear-mongering about the caravan, i.e. oh look at all the criminals and terrorists mixed in with the migrants and oh no how horrible!! Yet zero evidence produced

      Let me say this again, you don’t need to be famous for O1. Amazon, here’s the quiz, name the first author of the most cited paper in Nature in the past two years. This person very likely qualifies for O1 if he wants to apply. But according to you, no since you never heard of him.

      I never said anything about you saying shit about caravan. I am saying your completely fact-less arguments about “abuse” in O1 is very similar to Trump’ caravan fearmongering. And where did I resort to name calling?

      I see you’re an immigrant hating on other immigrants for “gaming” the system. What category did you immigrate in? Serious question? Are you a world renowned celebrity?

      Just because you haven't heard of someone doesn't mean they aren't talented or hard working. There are probably researchers and famous professors none of us at Blind have heard of. Are they not deserving of O1 just because some employees haven't heard of them?

      Desperate? You mean asylum seekers? They should be admitted before entitled people like you.

      Obviously I am speaking about professionally desperate. Not politically desperate. The kind that will work under any condition for any salary and are being exploited.

      Can you tell us more about your qualifications in the field of design? Just trying to understand the criteria for O1-B.

    Update if anybody is interested.
    Easy as pie. It really was just a formality.

    Once approved, the interview is just a technicality. Just don’t say anything stupid.

      If you get double checked it’s not a fucking day. It’s talk to the fucking hand as long as we want to. For me it was 4 month (but there is no upper limit)

      Man this visa stuff really messes with people. The pressure is intense.

      Advise - don’t give a fuck. Your wait time is nothing compared to GC for Indian or Chinese on eb2 and below.
