Visa Denial and Options

If the visa officer denies the visa application, there is no appeal. Still there are some ways to challenge the visa refusal; requesting reconsideration, supervisor review, advisory opinion or resubmitting the application. If visa denial can not be overcome, it may be possible to apply for a waiver.

Grounds of Refusal

  1. INA section 212 (a)

    Refusal under this section means that the applicant is found inadmissible to enter the America. Reasons may be medical, security, crime, prior violation of law or other grounds. Ther are exceptions and waivers are available to many of the grounds.

  2. INA section 214(b)

    Refusal under this section means that the officer the applicant failed to prove requirements of the intended non-immigrant visa. This generally applies to B visa, F visa or J visa. Section 214(b) does not apply to H visa, L visa or Immigrant visa.

    This ground of refusal is not permanent. The applicant can reapply on showing change of circumstances.

  3. INA section 221(g)

    Refusal under this section is temporary till the final determination is deferred by the visa officer. Here no need to reapply visa application or pay the fee again.

    When the reason for the deferral has been addressed, the visa officer may deny or issue visa.
