Explanation Letter Needed?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Mexico
Timeline

My fiance was denied entry to the U.S. a year and a half ago. They took his tourist visa and told him to reapply at a later date. The reason was simply that they felt he had more ties in the U.S. than to Mexico. And that he was simply visiting the states to frequently... which was true (to see me). My question, we decided to just wait and apply for a fiance visa rather than have him apply for his tourist visa again. It has been a year and half since he has been in the U.S. We want to know should I attach a letter to the form that asks the questions about denials and visa confiscation, stating the situation surrounding his denial and visa revoking. I am worried about just putting yes on these documents without an explanation. Because otherwise they could assume he had been denied for a real criminal reason. He has never had any trouble outside of this incident and even then it was not really for anything bad.... Please give me your thoughts, suggestions, experiences.... Thanks!

You should have him answer the question honestly (I don't believe the question is asked until the stage of the game where he'll be filling out the forms; that is, when he's applying for the visa once your petition is approved). I don't think it would hurt to add a letter of explanation; even though when your fiance comes for his interview (if not sooner) they'll know the reason for the revocation of his tourist visa, I can't see what harm it might cause to explain the answer.

You should know that this visa revocation, if it was only because of his lack of significant ties to Mexico, won't have any bearing on his fiance visa application. So don't worry about that. It's just important to always be honest, and as thorough and complete as possible. Good luck! :)

Like pax said, be honest! If they ask for an explanation on a form then give it, if they don't then don't. If they want an explanataion they'll ask for it :)

well they have the information on why he was rejected.

you may write a letter explaining the truth. so he was not denied on criminal offence or any such thing. they just could not relate his being in the US for long periods..

Dont worry too much but well i am sure they will ask him that during the interview and they best thing is always to tell the truth I applied for a turist visa 3 times i got them 2 but not the last one and at the k1 interview they asked me why they said no i guess they should know better than me but u will have no problems if u have all the papers and say the truth.good luck!
