Recommended Posts

Friend wants to visit USA from bosnia. He has a job, but pay isn't to good to his boss is writting that he pays him good and can leave for 2 months and still have a job. His family from USA send him a letter that they will pay for all expenses flight, room, food, spending money etc. his dad went to notary and changed the title of the car under his name. So he now has a "good paying" job a car and his parents to go back to. What are his chances

first of all he should never EVER lie to immigration under any circumstances, that includes lying about his income. Getting caught will be an automatic denial and could end up getting him banned from the US for material misrepresentation. Secondly the fact that he has family here in the US could actually work against him as they will view him as having immigrant intent. They won't chance giving him a visitor visa if they think he will try to stay in the US with his family. Writing letters, getting car titles changed and everything else his family is attempting to do won't help. He has to apply and be approved on his own merits and ties to home. Plain and simple.

Lying or misrepresenting oneself to USCIS or the consulate is a HUGE mistake. He needs to get that document changed to reflect his current income. As well, if it is not his car, that needs to be changed as well.

What other ties does this gentleman have? What family does he have in the US?

It is clear that your friend is desperate to come to the US, if we can see that, a consular will too.

good luck

Unfortunately his chances aren't good. Mimo is right you can't lie. They will be able to see that things were recently changed. They are not stupid. I have a friend from Bosnia and his mother was approved for a tourist visa but his fiancé was dented because she had not much $$$ or ties. Also my Bulgarian fiancé was denied as well for the same reasons. Sorry to say that. I know it's disappointing.

This charade of quickly changing car titles and then adding a dummied up job letter allegedly reflecting some big salary won't jive with his bank account (which probably has $23 in it). This is the sort of thing a seasoned CO sees right through, and then the applicant's credibility will have been ruined....is it worth it? One cannot restore one's credibility overnight, or with an apology or some notarized letter from anyone. Credibility is the best asset an applicant can have...it outweighs bank accounts, jobs, etc. It should not be treated lightly.

If he does not apply his chances are zero.

A car is no tie.

If the CO asks for documents to back up his claims, they'll see that he suddenly came into some money recently which is a red flag. They typically look at bank statements for the past 6 months to make sure that he didn't just do a money dump on his account for the sake of the interview. Same goes for properties and assets.

I don't know how things are done where your friend is but the CO doesn't always ask for documents. They may call his boss or family or whoever to confirm the applicants' claims. Lying and deceiving consuls is a no-no and seriously, so many people do it anyways so the COs are extra vigilant about that.
