Potential Issue?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was talking to my fiance on skype today and she brought something up that could potentially cause a complication, though it doesn't seem a big to me, but I don't know.

Before we met she applied for a visa to go to Spain. She says that it is a requirement for her to show she has a good job and makes decent money to get approved for this visa. So for her job information she said that she was some sort of manager and made a certain amount of money which in fact was not true and she was ultimately denied for this visa anyway. On the K1 visa app we said that she was working as a teacher which is correct. So now we are concerned that this may cause a complication or at worst a denial of the K1 visa request.

What do you think?

She never actually did an interview with the Spanish authorities. Her app was submitted and denied. So our concern is that they may pull her app for other foreign visas and see the difference. I told her when the Interview comes to be honest no matter what but If this does come up do you think it would be an issue? As I write this it seems a total non issue but I don't know. I imagine they go through so many applications that this is such a non issue but I have to ask.

It won't be an issue. Just make sure she's honest from here out with everything.

If they don`t ask, don`t tell, if they ask, be completely honest and have proof that this time she is actually being truthful. I`m sure that even if they`d look into it, they`d be more concerned about her being fully honest on this visa application than they will be about her lie for a visa application in Spain.

Don`t stress over it too much, all she needs to make sure is to be prepared for it the day the interview comes, just in case (proof that she is actually a teacher or proof of anything at all they could assume being a lie because it may sound too good to be true) and as long as no one asks, don`t mention it.

Good luck :)

Agreeing on if they don't ask then don't tell. From here on out honesty is the best thing, but make sure she doesn't go overboard and tell them SO MUCH that they start to become worried because she's spilling the beans about things they don't ask for. Keep her answers short, simple, and honest to what ever question is given.

Spanish visa has nothing to do with US visa especially since

a visa was never obtained, I have never heard K1 applicants being

questioned about visa they desire for other countries to visit, only

way that would MAYBE come up if the Spanish consulate had placed

a denial in her PP....She has nothing to worry about, just don't lie on any

of the US apps.

They will ask about visas to the US for US immigration/visa purposes. They do not ask about visas to other countries, as it has no bearing on a visa for the US.

Yes actually the consulate did stamp the denial in her passport

Even so a visitors visa denied to Spain has no bearing on USA K1 app.

if asked all she has to do is be honest & say I wanted to visit & was

turned down ...period.....IF it comes up
