Please help, visa question!


MY brother and i would like to travel to California early next year to do between 4-6 months (not exceeding 180 days) of snowboarding at the amazing resorts in California. We are most likley heading to Mammoth Lakes and will stay there the whole time or stay in South Tahoe and do the Tahoe resorts.

I understand we need a B2 visa for anything over 90days and am happy to obtain this. The only question is that if we are granted the visa what is the likleyhood we will be turned away at customs?

We will not work, we have plenty of funds to support ourselves (over £10,000 each) and can prove this and we both have partners and of course family we want to return to. We will also have return tickets.

I have heard horror stories of people being turned away by an over zealous custom official and i wondered what is the chance this will happen to us given all the above information?

Will we be granted upto 180 days in USA and is there anything more that we can do to prove we do not want to live in the USA!
