B1/b2 visa cancelled... What next?

My b1/b2 visa was cancelled due to working in the us. I recently got engaged and would like to apply for a k1 visa. What are the chances of me getting the k1? Or is it best to apply for a b1 again? My mother in law is sick with cancer and I was her carer, is this worth mentioning? Help!

You won't get another tourist visa for a long long time since you violated the terms by working illegally and have 0 credibility now.

Did you get deported or something to have your b1/b2 visa cancelled?

Caregiving for your mother in law is considered working also. Even if is not paid.

If you are ready for a K1 then go for it. But a new visitor visa is not going to happen.

If you are simply denied entry -> CBP allowed you to voluntarily withdraw your admission, no ban involved, no waiver required.

If you are given removal order, you will have a ban and require a waiver.

Does your passport has any written code or were you given any paper work?

The K-1 and the B-1 are do completely different purposes. You apply for a K-1 if you want to get married and settle in the USA and a B-1 to visit. If you are planning to move to the USA then the B-1 is the wrong visa. If you're not planning to stay, the K-1 is very expensive to use to visit (and people have done that). It's a single use visa and costs hundreds. That's a lot to spend to be able to go once.

But first we need to know if you were given the option to go home and voluntarily withdraw your application to enter or if you were actually placed in formal removal proceedings.

I was not yet in the states. I was trying to get in from a vacation to then return home. I was refused entry (application for admission withdrawn) not deported nor removed. There is a code and they gave me paperwork. I planned on getting married and settling there to my fiancé who is the reason I really got the b1 for to spend more time with him aswel as travel and leisure. Because of the cancer with his mother I wanted to help out by earning a bit of money but unfortunately that was not the right thing to do

Your past record of working on a tourist visa will definitely bring you some trouble.You shouldn't have worked on your tourist visa,no matter what.You can only try for k1 visa and see what happens.Since you will not be getting a tourist visa again so your best bet is to try for K 1 visa.Good luck.

Best bet is to be 100% sure that's the person you want to spend life with, marry, and proceed with CR1. As a process with most likely positive outcome if there's no other red flags, other that already huge one with illegal work.

Officers will definitely question your previous attempt to enter USA on B1/B2 and now attempt to get in via K1.

Also K1 is a very serious decision and semi long process don't use it as the way to just get in to care for someone and breaking the law again.


Oh, what a day, what a lovely day!

Unless you're married you don't have a mother in law. She is your fiances mother but no relation to you.

Might sound like a silly thing but if you're thinking of going down the K-1 route then you need to be careful with every little thing you say.

You go round calling her your mother in law then you risk being denied the K-1 if they think you're already married.

Forget about any kind of tourist visa any time in the near future.
