HURRY! B2 after ESTA being denied

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a question what are the chances getting approved B2 if my ESTA got denied yesterday because of 221(g)?The 221g happened because I guess I needed to add additional papers at 2012 for my J1 visa..but I have the visa in my passport and they view it as a denial..Its been one day and I am applying for a new B2 visa, how will I answer the visa denial questions on B2 ds-160 form?Will i now get all visas denied because of a misunderstanding my visa sponsor never told me?How to act in consulate when they ask about it.

If you have the visa in your passport, dont that mean tou were approved that visa? Why did you get the 221(g) and the visa?

As for applyibg for the b2 visa - make sure you bring good proof of ties to home country.

So you are no longer going the K1 route?

How do I bring strong ties?I am graduating university one day after visa interview on friday. No longer K1, atleast not yet or so far.


I have no idea why I got the 221, thats the whole problem. The customs in US told me happened in 2012 which visa I have in my passport

Nobody on here can tell you what your strong ties are, they would be things that persuade the Consulate that you will return to your unspecified home country rather than stay in the US.

The information that is pertinent for a B2 application will be what you supplied, they have that application we do not.

Being refused ESTA obviously is not a positive, why may well be pertinent.
