Hello VJers!!!

Does anyone know how to answer 31. of Form DS-156 Part I?

The question is:

31. Have You Ever Been Refused a U.S. Visa?

Yes x No

Where?

I was denied a work-related non-immigrant visa petition some years back. So I need to answer "yes", and fill out the location.

Which address would be appropriate, the beneficiary's (my) residence, or petitioner's (my company's) office, which is inside the US??

Any tips would be great. I need your help. Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks! In fact I never had an interview. The petition was denied at California Service Center.

Ahh - OK. In that case, I'm not 100% sure, but I'd have thought you'd need to put USCIS California Service Center as that was the location the refusal took place. Maybe someone else who's had a similar refusal before the interview stage can confirm that?
