denied a visa

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi and thank you for your assistance..

(Im a UK CITIZEN, i do not live in USA!..during registration,these were the only options available)

Where do i begin.. back in October I phoned to book an appointment for the UK Embassy in London. All the information was given to myself (well what I thought) and the appointment was made, October 5 8:30am.

I had a denial due to the 'fact' that the information i had for support did not match the visa I applied for so I was denied on the grounds of section 214(b), so i read the form given and used google for more understanding.

I phoned the same number again, and explained my situation to the gentleman on the the phone, he advised that i was NOT given all the correct information, but there is nothing that can be done about it, apart from being given the full information needed. so he gave me the information. He informed me of the ESTA/90 day vacation & if that was a refusal then I needed the B2 visa, which is for tourism..right??

What are my chances on gaining this B2 visa, after a denial of HB1/H1 visa?

Now HB1/H1 and B2 visa, are totally different visa's. I have NO intention of working in US..im going to visit a friend in Los Angeles, and touring with her :)

Please help.

Is there a time limitation for applying for a 90day vacay visa after a denial....or will this be on my record for the rest of my living days! Someone told me that 'if I applied for a new passport, I would have a new number, so therefore 90 day vacation visa, will not recognise my passport and allow entry'....This cant be true...can it??

Thank you so much

No its not true, if that was the case all immigration histories, such as deportations, overstays, denied visas, would simply disappear when a new visa is issued.

The passports are electronically tied so when they scan your new one, they see the histories of the old ones.

With a denied H1B and now trying for a tourist visa, you look desperate to go to the US. You'll want strong ties to the UK, like a job, lease/motgage, bills, etc

good luck

Did you try ESTA?

What is your original nationality.
