Re: visa usa ...nepalese living in switzerland with B permit?

Namaste! I am sorry, is it that you both have a visa, or is it that your partner has the visa and now you wish to get one?

The American embassy will treat you as all other people applying for visa. You will need to prove by any possible way that you intend to come for a short visit only, and do want to become domiciled in the US.
Bring any possible document to prove that.

When you will have the interview in the US embassy, be prepared for a few hours of waiting. First they handle all Swiss citizens, and then the people from other countries.

Good luck

I'm not sure this is true. I applied for a B1/B2 US visa a couple of months ago. They first handle the immigration visa (people applying for this type of visa will be able to skip the queue whenever they arrive and go directly inside). Apart from that, all non-immigrant visa appliers wait in the same queue regardless of nationality. In front of me stood two women clearly holding the Swiss passport. I think the correct strategy is to arrive earlier. As for me, my appointment was at 14. and at 13:50 the queue was already very long.
