- Upon receipt of the email you may now get the appointment. I would suggest getting the earliest possible time, as they are completing the earlier applicant.
- Be reminded that Mobile Phones, PDA, IPAD or any other electronic communication items is not allowed in US Embassy. Again it is not allowed. You cannot also bring your car inside the vicinity of the US Embassy in Riyadh so you have to walk.
- During the interview bring some information that will prove about the details that you have written in your application as follows:
Possible needed documents during interview
- Bank Statements

- Any other documents, which you think, could add up to you. But be informed that there are times all this documents are not needed and an interview is enough.
So Good Luck to all of you who will try to get a 10 year multiple B1/B2 Visa from US. Hope the instructions I have listed above is clear enough for you to get your visa.
