K1-visa Cancelled without prejudice

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Do you know why it got cancelled? Did it says so on the status? Then it could be that they made an error and had to re-do it. Otherwise it sounds like she doesn't have a visa anymore.

You haven't given us a lot of information. If you know why it's been cancelled and it's not their fault I don't think you can expect more than the fact that the visa has been cancelled. If you don't know what has happened I suggest contacting the embassy.

My sister had that in her tourist visa - they put down wrong gender. They issued a new one with no problems.

FX similar thing with your fiance's visa.

"Cancelled without prejudice" most likely came up as a status update on the case, most likely because they realized they spelled something wrong or picked the wrong gender so they cancelled it and now they're working on a new one. Most likely.

Good morning guys and thanks for your replies, they gave her the passport with "cancelled without prejudice" stamp on it.

The CEAC status show "READY" I also got an email from the embassy that says it is under "AP".

thank you so much.

You should ask for a proper explanation because that does not sound right. If she has gotten her passport back with her passport stamped like that, her K1 visa has been cancelled.

It sounds like the petition has been returned to USCIS and the visa has been refused.

Your fiance needs and you need to get clarification on what exactly is going on and why.

If they don't tell you than do a senatorial inquiry to get some answers.

Was he given a 221g letter with anything marked or written ?

You need to give more detailed information.

I didn't realise that mine was cancelled without prejudice until I got it. I compared the two visas in my passport, and it turned out the one cancelled had my name spelled incorrectly.

If you have the former visa stamped with cancelled without prejudice in the passport, you could just look over it very closely and see what/if there are any differences.

according to: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/general/glossary.html

Cancelled Without Prejudice: A stamp a U.S. Embassy or Consulate puts on a visa when there is a mistake in the visa or the visa is a duplicate visa (two of the same kind). It does not affect the validity of other visas in the passport. It does not mean that the passport holder will not get another visa.

They also do that to previous visa's that are no longer valied if you get a new one. For example you have a J1 visa and then you get and F1 the J1 will get the Cancelled Without Prejudice stamp.

However it sounds like the OP's fiance got this stamped on her visa and then did not get a new one which means they really need to contact the embassy and figure out what is going on.

You shouldn't accept the "Administrative Processing" answer because that can mean anything. Ask them "Why does the visa have a Cancelled without Prejudice" stamp on it?" "Have we been denied a visa and will our case be sent back to USCIS to expire or will we actually get a visa?". After 2 months without a word, it doesn't sound optimistic though.
