Result of b1/b2 denial

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

The company wanted me to apply for a b1/b2 visa to attend meetings. Unfortunately, my visa got declined under 214(b).

 

This means I cannot visit US even for tourism because if I apply as a tourist, the CO might decline thinking that I want to enter US at any cost although this is not what I want.

Moreover, applying for other countries toursit visa(canada, Australia, new Zealand) might also have an impact as I will have to mark, YES when asked whether I have been declined a visa before.

 

What should I do?

You tell the truth.  My wife was declined by both Mexico and the US for tourist visas.  She now has a permanent Visa for Mexico and a Green Card for the US.

My concern is for any other country apart from the country for which the visa was rejected, were you able to travel to other countries that required a visa, after your rejections from Mexico and US?

Are you referring to the time frame in which she was rejected and not owning a green card? Or are you referring to the time frame after her acceptance to the 2 countries.

First, based on you other thread I would not rush into trying for another US Visa until you have travel to other places needing a visa.

 

She obtained a Canadian Visa after the denial on a Mexican Visa and the denial of the US Tourist Visa.  She got the visa even after disclosing the denials.   After she got US green card we "updated" Canada and she got an Electronic Travel authorization.  

 

She reminded my she also got a Visa for Panama and had to disclose the US and Mexican denials.
