Rejected entry to US before IR-1 application. Is it necessary to bring these papers to interview?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got rejected at the border in 2013 when trying to go down for a visit. 2 months after, we started our application.

Currently my case is complete at the NVC and I am waiting for the interview date (in Montreal) and I read that sometimes they ask you if you've been rejected entry before. Now obviously my answer will be yes, should I bring the papers that were given to me by the officer at the time to my interview?

Thanks!

Also, my case was marked complete on May 4th, any idea how long it takes to get an interview date? I notice that they take a week to send out emails after. I found out when I called it was complete on May 4th but they didn't send me an email until May 12th(that it was complete), so I'm assuming that my interview will be scheduled probably a week before I actually get an email from them saying it's scheduled.

What do you mean 'rejected'? I was denied entry but did not bring any paperwork to the consulate. Were you under expedited removal? That often has paper work associated with it.

Why were you 'rejected'?

good luc

If you still have the paperwork then bring it along, better to be over prepared

On the DS-260 form that you filled out at the NVC stage, it asks if you've ever been refused admission to the US so I assume you answered yes there?! The embassy will go through that form, the IV application, and see that you have been refused admission, so if I were you, I'd prepare to answer some questions about that and also bring any papers you have regarding that. Better safe than sorry.
