Fiance Visas in Delhi

Ok so I am hearing more and more that sikhs in Punjab are getting more and more rejected for visas(fiance). Reason is twofold, first that they use common last names(Kaur or Singh) and secondly, they has been a rash of fraud from so called travel agents in that region.

So I was denied the first time.. and reapplied., just got the approval and it is in NVC. Any advice on how to try to persuade them not to deny it this time around.

I plan to actually go for the interview this time. I have already started to get letters of support from both sides of our families. Two congressmen and a senator have been informed and they will submit letters of support and also call into the embassy prior to the interview.

I dont know what else to do.

Someone mentioned that since I went to india 4 timesthat the embassy might question why I didnt get married.

Summer 2006(engaged)

Nov 2006

Feb 2007- a wedding

Sept 2007

all the trips were for 5-7 days since I can not take more time from work. Also, my entire family lives in the states along with my neices and nephews... hence the reason to get married here..

any advice?

It sounds to me that you are doing everything you possibly can. The common last names might be a pain but what to do. As for proof, you have a lot! Besides everything else, make sure your sponsorship has everything and more, because they are sensitive about that - like letter from your employer, taxes for last 3 years, pay stubs for 6 months etc. Along with photos of both of you, you can include an explanation letter if you want, about why you want to marry in the States. Also affidavits from family (yours and his) will help too. Knowing that the families approve is a big positive sign.

Best wishes and prayers for a quick approval! :thumbs:

Looks like you have done all your ground work. Try to have proof of gifts exchanges between you folks (e.g. like jewellery receipts, etc.)

Definitely, letters/affidavits from both family members helps!

Good luck!

I think going personally would definitely help...Not sure if you will be allowed to accompany your fiancee inside the consulate but she can definitely mention that you are there(in person) to alleviate any doubts on part of the consular official.

Good luck!.
