Hi yall, looking for advice on applying for a B2 tourism visa for a good friend to come visit me. He is Syrian but living in Lebanon. He's not trying to apply for asylum, just wants to visit and experience US as a tourist. I know to have your application approved they check into your finances. Question is, how much money are they looking for as a measure of financial security? He's financially stable, but I'm just not sure how much they expect to see in an applicants account - 10 grand? 50 grand? How do they check, do you provide a bank document? How long does the process usually take, from scheduling an interview to their decision? Any info would be appreciated. Didn't find any of this behind the scenes info on the internet, just how to apply.
