B2 Visa Denied

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I wasn't sure if I should have posted in the work visa for tourist visa category, so administrators please move this if this is the wrong place. Thank you.

An Australian friend of mine was on a H1B, earlier in July of this year she has decided to resign and return to Australia, however, prior to her departure, she wanted to travel around the US and after getting advice applied for a B2 visa. She recently received notification that her B2 visa was denied, my questions are:

  • Can she appeal the decision?
  • How quickly will she needs to leave the US?
  • Has she accumulated any unlawful overstays since her H1B would have expired on her last day of employment in early July?
  • Can she possibly use the Visa Waiver Program? The issue is that she has been living here for some time and quite a lot of things to pack up and other things to take care of

Many thanks

She can't appeal for B-2 visa denial.

Out of my curiosity, I might be slow today, how did she apply B-2 visa if she still in the US? I believe she needs to attend the interview in the US embassy in Australia.

You can adjust from H1B to B2 in US. Thats what I did back in 2013.

Oh, okay. Thank you for the info. I had feeling that what she did. But, the OP did not mention about adjust from one visa to another.

Denied is because she overstay in the US with her H1B visa (which expired early Jul).
