B1 visa rejected in Singapore, can re-apply in Malaysia?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm from Malaysia, currently working in Singapore for about 7 months. EP holder. I applied my B1/B2 US visa in Singapore and got rejected last month under section 214 (B).

I'm thinking to re-apply but in Malaysia. Are there still chance?

hi

 

nope you are the same person, immigration has you in their system, you will have to be truthful and apply with the same information you did last time, you have no ties to your country or Singapore you will be denied again and seen as desperate to come here

You need to have strong ties to your home country when you apply for B1/B2.  The visa is used for business, pleasure, or medical with the intention of you returning to your own country.  You have to be honest when trying to get any kind of visa to enter the US.  Good luck to you.

All or information you have them in Singapore is put into the computer. The people in Malaysia will see it. Nothing will change unless your circumstances have changed.

The answer to your question is yes you can.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Has anything changed since you applied in Singapore? They will be interested in your proving your ties to your home country - I would assume that since you work in Singapore they would think you're up for working anywhere, USA included. 

Even if you apply in Malaysia but are still working in Singapore under the same circumstance, it won't really make much of a difference unless you find a way to prove your ties.

Do you have any family members or a fiance(e)/person of romantic interest in the US by chance? That would lower your chances of getting a B, regardless of what country you apply in.

Your chance would depend on improving upon whatever reason the singapore application was denied. The Malaysia CO would have access to your previous ds160 and interview responses.

Yes you can apply again from another country.

No, don't expect a different result than your previous application unless your circumstances have changed.
