denied fiance visa at interview

I was told that once the visa is denied at the consular level, it is essentially a closed case and there is no longer a review process and you must resubmit another fiance visa. Anyone else hear this new information? This information came from my senators office in Vermont.

I have been in that situation. This time what is happening at the visa process, once your visa denied at the Embassy during the interview, the embassy will send it back to the USCIS. After USCIS received the returned petition package, they keep it until the petition expires. Then you will get a letter stating that your petition is expired, so that you will be able to file another petition. At this point, you can file another K-1 or spousal petition. It might take another 6-8 weeks. I have been in this situation and I filed another K-1 and now at the embassy. However, it doesn’t mean the entire petitions denied at the interview should go through this way. There may be some reaffirmed after the USCIS review.

Good luck

It is true that your petition will most likely expire before it is reviewed. Filing an additional K1 petition isn't going to solve the problem, however, if none of your circumstances have changed. You really should try to figure out why your first attempt at a visa was denied, and address that issue before filing another petition. If not, they will just deny you again.

That is usually the case. Do you know what questions were asked and how they were answered? How many times had you visited? Think about your red flags and maybe you can figure out what happened to address it for your next attempt.
