Next step after given a one year denial?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Yesterday, at the Kingston Embassy, my fiance was given a one-year denial because he admitted to using marijuana once over the past year during his medical exam. He tested clean.

My question is: What now? Do we have to file additional forms? Will the embassy simply send him another interview letter next spring? Do we reapply for a visa altogether? I know he has to get another medical exam and it is suggested that he take occasional drug tests over the next year to ensure that he is drug free.

I'm having trouble finding the answers to these questions.

There is nothing at this point you can do aside from wait out the 1yr ban. The issue is, you application will probably expire and you will need to re-apply all together. My friend now husband was denied for three years prior to the change. When the three years was up, they called for another interview date. One was granted and at the interview he was told they want his wife here. Well when she does come down they looked at her like what are you doing here. She was then told that they needed to refile because everthing had expired. So I just suggested that she marry him and then file for and I-130 which would be cheaper in the end and he would come over with everything. There is another lady who is about to have a second interview on 4/26. Her husband had a denial as well. Touch basis with her and she can probably fill you in on more current stuff. Her name is Mrscampbell. Good Luck!

Thank you for the information. Yeah, we're probably going to get married this summer and refile late next fall so that he can interview again in the spring. Ugh, what a process!
