I agree wpilr_nov12, adding couple of fields extra would definitely help other members.

A kind request to all posting timeline, could you please follow above template for all timelines posting on or after 28th Oct?

wpilr_nov12, Could you please paste this template in Oct timeline also? So that we'd have people posting from today onward in that thread until 31st?

Hi wpilr_nov12,

Was your B1 cert a new one, or the one you used at the time of your initial entry clearance and was it expired or still valid?

Regards
