Form I-290B for F1 student Visa Denial?
you had better have an exceptional strong case to have any chance and the filing fee is a whopping $585 214(b) The most frequent basis for such a refusal concerns the requirement that the prospective visitor or student possess a residence abroad he/she has no intention of abandoning. Applicants prove the existence of such residence by demonstrating that they have ties abroad that would compel them to leave the U.S. at the end of the temporary stay. The law places this burden of proof on the applicant
What are my chances for a H1B Visa?
Hello.. I am wondering what my chances are for a H1B Visa. I am a Greek National and i hold two degrees from two British Institutions. A BSc and a MSc. Exceptional Grades on both. I have already went through extensive googling, but i would like to hear opinions from people that have been through this process and tell me which are the potential steps. Also, is there some sort of "Alienation" against immigrants from other countries? I am not sure if i wish to settle in the states, i'm more looking forward for the experience. Ideal place of work, would be somewhere in LA.
I am an Indian student at IIT and I recently applied for a B1/B2 visa at the US consulate, which was denied under section 214 B. I can re-apply right away, but how soon should I do it? How does this impact my future applications for visas to the US?
First, as explained the US Department of State: What does a visa denial under INA section 214(b) mean? This law applies only to nonimmigrant visa categories. If you are refused a visa under section 214(b), it means that you: · Did not sufficiently demonstrate to the consular officer that you qualify for the nonimmigrant visa category you applied for; and/or · Did not overcome the presumption of immigrant intent, required by law, by sufficiently demonstrating that you have strong ties to your home country that will compel you to leave the United States at the end of your temporary stay. (H-1B and L visa applicants, along with their spouse and any minor children, are excluded from this requirement.) Second, to answer your questions: How soon should I re-apply? It is absolutely essential for me to get this visa. [MR]: Depends on the facts of your case. After any refusal, the visa applicant must consider the reasons for the denial, and what will be different in a subsequent application, what additional documentation may be provided to encourage approval and how long it will take to get it. Would the US Consulate bring up this visa denial in all future applications? [MR]: Yes, absolutely. You will have to submit a new DS-160 application online, which specifically asks about prior visa refusals. Would this affect my chance of procuring a H1B/green card in the future? [MR]: Probably not, assuming no fraud or misrepresentation was involved. Should I re-apply with tickets and booked lodging, or would an itinerary do? [MR]: All of these things should help, but won’t necessarily lead to a different result. As a student, how can I show strong ties to India, apart from the fact that I have 2 more years to graduation [MR]: This is a common problem for young people – lack of ties. So credibility, future plans are considered by the Consular Post. I would need to know more about the facts of your case to provide more help or suggestions as to what you might do. Feel free to send me an email to set up a quick call. Good luck.
How can I overcome my 214-b denial for my F-1 student visa? It happened to me previously on my first attempt.
Realistically, you probably cannot, at least not in the near future. Less than 1% of visa applicants are able to overcome a refusal due to 214-b: Visa Ineligibilities by Grounds for Refusal, FY 2016Sometimes there’s a red flag about your intended plans in the US that you can overcome by modifying your plans. For example, former Au Pairs are often denied student visas if they want to return to the same area where their Au Pair year took place. That particular behavior triggers concerns about a possible intent to work illegally (e.g. to continue childcare for their former host family). If instead they sought a student visa to study in a different state, their visas would likely be granted.Sometimes you can overcome suspected immigration intent by strengthening your ties to your home country. That’s hard to do short-term but not unheard of. (I have met people who have entered a binding contract to work for their home government for X years after graduation, in exchange for their home government paying for college. That would be a strong indicator that you intend to return home.)If you receive any amount of financial support from your home government, you may be able to strengthen your case by applying for a J-1 visa instead of an F-1 visa, knowingly triggering the 2-year home residency requirement. Intentionally making yourself ineligible for a US work or immigrant visa is a pretty strong indicator that you don’t intend to immigrate.However, most likely, you won’t be able to overcome the 214-b ineligibility in the near future. Your best course of action is to re-orient yourself and make plans to study in another country.
I was denied a B1/B2 visa twice on immigration section 214(b). What does this mean?
Visa officers are very smart, they are psychologists, they have close to 2 minutes to judge you based on few sets of questions.My first experience was that I was quite nervous at the time of interview, and could not present myself well, and counselor officer refused visa under section 214 B. But after a month, with lot of preparation and few tricks my visa got approved. But everyone has their unique case, so you carefully see what could be the reasons for denial. Section 214 B, basically means,You are not able to demonstrate your intention of your visit (purpose should be clear).Or you are not able to demonstrate strong ties to your home country (they want strong ties which will forced you to come back after the visit).Or Your financials (your salary & investments) should be good enough. (in case you are lost due to some reasons you should be able to bear expenses on your own)But do not get depressed, 214 B denial is not permanent, apply again. Earlier I was going for a six week trip and I was not able to justify, why I need six weeks, so later I changed my duration from six weeks to three weeks. Be prepare well, present the answers with confidence and that’s it. In my case, just to add strong ties, I purposefully added few things in my answers, I believe that worked out for me. E.g., VO as asked me, exact three weeks, I said yes, I cannot stay more than that as my daughter is turning three on 31st. August, and I have to come back before that. So you can choose to prepare and plan your answers. If you need more explanation, share your case or feel free to get in touch. Thanks.
What is the requirements to get a student visa in USA as a Bangladeshi? What are the qualifications needed?
First of all you will need an offer letter from a College or university in US. This is vital to apply for visa in US consulate in your country. Then all your study performance matters to succeed in visa interview. If your performance in studies is not consistent, there are chances of visa getting denied or delayed. Above all you will need brilliant scores in exams like GRE/SAT/MAT/TOEFL/IELTS which helps you to pass the visa interview quickly without delay. I believe they dont require IELTS rather you must write TOEFL. Also GRE is mandatory. all the best
How can I overcome an F1 visa 214(b) denial? I have said that I won't return back to Nepal.
A successful F1 visa applicant will have several very strong reasons to study that specific subject, and he will be able to elucidate those reasons clearly, calmly, and in detail.He will be able to explain why he needs to study in the US rather than in his own country or a closer and less expensive one, such as India.He will be able to discuss the subject with a consular officer who might well have some knowledge about it. He will know what research and progress is currently being done, and what it means.He will be able to describe exactly how his studies will be paid for, without using up the entire family’s financial resources.He will be able to explain precisely how he intends to use the knowledge that the studies (not just the degree) will give him when he returns to his own country, in order to have a far more successful career (and life) than he would have had he not studied in the US.Etcetera.
