DV2019 Visa Denied - Appeal options?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, Australian entrant here,
I've just been been denied a DV2019 Green Card visa, having not met either of the 2 criteria, that is, I don't have a year 12 high school certificate and neither of my two vocations rate an SVP 7 or higher. My passport has been returned along with a single page letter of denial based on those two elements. I've practically accepted this loss of opportunity however, I have to ask, is there any avenue of appeal to this denial?
Thanks for taking the time to respond.
Cheers,
Mark.

No. My personal conditions of those two criteria won't change. And I fully understand the two criteria. I was just wondering about any appeal that I could further state my case such as, despite the lacking in those two criteria, the fact that I have been a sole proprietor business operator, furthered my qualifications/studies in those areas, employed and trained a few people over the years etc. In short, a very good history of being a good little contributor to society so to speak. All of which I had already presented to the consulate after my interview when they required me to go home and compile the occupation information they further required.
   I know this particular visa journey is over, but it would be remiss of me not to see if there is any way of appeal. Thanks for replying.

Any appeal you filed would be unsuccessful, since you were correctly denied and there was no error.

A] there is no appeal process for consular refusals

B] as already pointed out, you do not meet one of the two crucial eligibility criteria, so even if there was an appeal process it would be unsuccessful. (Like others, I am a bit puzzled as to why you proceeded when both the instructions on the application and those for selectees clearly tell you you will be denied for not meeting this criterion.)
