PAST MISREPRESENTATION CASE

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

SO I APLLIED FOR AN F1 VISA IN 2010. I BELIEVE I WAS REFUSED/DENIED BECAUSE ONE OF THE DOCUMENTS I SUBMITTED WASNT ORIGINAL(FORGED). I LATER GOT TO KNOW THE DOCS I WAS HANDEE TO PRESENT AT THE EMBASSY BY AN UNCLE WASNT ORIGINAL. BEFORE THAT I HAD VISITED USA IN 2009 AND 2010. I MET MY FIANCE IN 2010 IN THE STATES. WE HAVE BEEN TOGETHER SINCE 2010. WE HAVE MET TWICE SINCE THAT PERIOD. ONE IN LONDON AND THE OTHER IN South Africa ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO. SHE FILED FOR K-1 VISA IN MARCH,2019 AND WE RECEIVED OUR NOA2 3/06/2019. NOW MY PROBLEM IS THAT MY PAST VISA DENIAL IN 2010 WILL COME HAUNT US. PLEASE CAN WE OVER COME THIS HURDLE? CAN SOMEONE HERE WITH SIMILAR EXPERIENCE SHARE. NOTE, I SUBMITTED THE DOCS BUT I DIDNT DELIBERATELY SUBMITTED THOSE FORGED DOCS. THANKS

Without your nationality and the document in question we would all be guessing.  You didn't receive anything fro the CO about the rejection?   

 

Usually misrepresentation is a lifetime ban.

What country are you from/ what document was forged and why? This can have a huge impact on your current petition.

 

as someone else said, generally misrepresentation is typically a lifetime ban.

I am from Ghana. I was given a generic letter. I had travel to the USA twice before applying for the F1 visa. At my interview I was asked to go and that the embassy will contact me. I was called to come back after a couple of days. when I got there the CO asked who gave me the docs(bank statement) and I said my uncle. That was he gave a generic refusal letter. it was later I got to know from a family member that I was given a forged statement from by uncle.

Additionally, please don't use capital letters. They are hard to read, and in internet parlance it is used for shouting. :yes:

sorry about that.

ghana is a tough consulate since it is considered a high fraud country.

 

how was a bank statement forged and why? did your uncle edit it to reflect more money in the account?

 

Do you have a copy of that letter we could see?

If the letter didn't say the visa was denied for Misrep then you are probably ok.  You must still state you were denied a visa when you file the DS-160.  When you interview expect some questions about the past application.  If it was for Misrep you will find out at the interview.

Was this a bank account in your name or your uncles? Was the amount in the account changed? If it was an account in your name and it was the amount in the account changed then I think the embassy would have had a reasonable expectation for you to know that the document was forged as you should know how much is in your own account and therefore know if the bank statement being presented was correct or not.
