I-485 Denied Admission/Visa to the US Question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

On Form I-485 of Part 8, Question 14-15.

 

14.  Have you EVER been denied admission to the United States? (Yes / No)

15.  Have you EVER been denied a visa to the United States? (Yes / No)

 

So my wife, applied for a US tourist visa (B2) a few years ago and got denied.  Is it OK if I answer NO to 14 and YES to 15. 

 

She was denied a visa to the US.... but I'm assuming this doesn't mean she was denied admission to the US?  OR does it mean if you were denied a visa to the US, therefore, you are denied admission to the US as well?   Kind of confused.

HI,

 

You are correct. 

14. No

15. Yes

 

Being denied admission means that they were at a US point of entry and was not let in. For example, if your wife had a visa and flew to JFK airport in New York, and when she exited the plane she spoke with a customs officer who denied her entry for some reason and she had to fly back home. That would be a denial of admission.

This was our situation as well, and we answered as you described. We took question 14 to mean "denial at the border/PoE" and since she never attempted entry to US it was No to 14, and Yes to 15.

Thanks, it makes sense!
