Visa Rejection

  • Well no one I knew has been rejected when going to Harvard, John Hopkins, Yale, Mayo, Cleaveland etc. Always remember big names never get rejected and smaller universities rarely get accepted so never apply for visa on their basis. Although I dont understand the reason but big names never get rejected unless or until you commit a blunder.
  • Now if you were unfortunate enough to have been rejected once or twice, dont worry you can try once more...but this time keep a good documentation...carry as much documents as possible....dont commit any blunder during interviews and stay calm...have a look at visa interview post...
  • If you have been rejected multiple times, it means either your university is not a good one or you there is something missing either in your documents or in your attitude during interview. So please double check it!
  • If unluckily your visa gets rejected, then next time apply on the basis of the same letter. DON’T TRY TO THE ACCEPTANCE LETTER OF ANOTHER UNIVERSITY OR CHANGE ANY OF YOUR YOUR STATEMENTS, IT WILL ONLY WEAKEN YOUR CASE. They have record of each and everything that you have said in the previous interview.

    Although many recommend leaving the path of USMLEs if you get rejected for elective visa multiple times but I would recommend trying once on the basis of some research/observerships before leaving your passions/your dream. Best of luck! There is nothing like the end of life! Life always keeps on going with always something better in future for you than what you expect..so dont lose hope...

b1/b2 tourism 214b refusal karachi

I am kinda old compared to you guys,39 to be exact.I have been going to the us since the age of 8 or 9 and have never been refused a visa untill now.i spent 5 years there on f1 in the 90s and came back. i was issued b1/b2 visa in 2002 and then again the same visa in 2007 .Unfortunately i did not use the 2007 visa issued for 5 years which probably screwed up my case this time.In 2007 i was asked a couple of simple questions and then issued the visa.This time i thought the same was gonna happen so i did not think too much about the interview.But unfortunately unlike the last time this time the VO was looking very angry and giving me strange looks as if he does not like me. I fumbled a bit in the interview regarding my economic ties in pakistant. I forgot what i had written exactly in the form regarding my source of income and probably gave answers which did not exactly match what was there in the form. Plus the fact that I am still single did not go down well with him. He refused my visa and said that he does need to explain anything to me which was rather rude.He did not ask for my bank statement or any supporting document.

I can apply again showing them bank statements and property documents in my name including my house.I can show money in the bank for the last 12 months 70k dollars plus. The problem is that these guys do not often look at documents.I now a relative of mine who refused tourist visa eventhough he has over a million dollars in his bank account.I am not sure if I should apply again or not?If i did should i give interview in urdu this time? because this white guy who interviewed me looked like he was ready to shoot me or something.

 

 

 

usa visa observership

hi.
i got observership as medical student.i want to apply for visit visa(b1/b2) for observership.
i have read on this forum that visas have been denied or people deported from usa port of entry on observership because visa officer used to tell them that you have to be on j1 or f1 for observership.those who were deported were graduates(doctors) but i am a medical student.
what should i do?
please help and give me some time by replying to my post.i have heard a lot about this website so i am asking for help in the shape of good advice.
please help me

 Yesterday, my US visa was

 Yesterday, my US visa was rejected along with my wife under 214(b). I was going to the US for a buyer-seller meet where I was supposed to display my articles. This was organized by the US market cosul along with Council of Leather exports which is a Govt. of India apex body. We had the relevant docs but the interviewer didnt ask for it once she heard by salary was less. Actually I am a part of my family business which I have joined some time back and have not yet become the partner. I applied as the CEO and showed a salary of 40,000 INR/month. This is due to the nature of business and turnover and profit we could not show any more.

She asked : Why are you going to the US?"
I told :"Council of Leather Exports which is an apex body of the Govt. of India is organizing a Buyer seller meet in association with the Marketing Consul of US and we were going to display our articles there as we have booked a stall."
She asked me where in US we were going to which I told NY.
She again asked me why we were going to the US and I told the same thing.
 
Then she asked my wife just 2 questions.
US consul: "Why did you go to Japan?"
Wife:"on vacation with parents."
US Consul: "Your husband did not go?"
Wife:"No, we were not married then. It was qiote some years ago."
 
She asked me " Do you both only stay together?"
I said "No, we live with my parents."
 
Then she asked us if we have kids to which we answered negative.
 
Then she again turned to me and asked my salary.
I told her : "40,000 per month along with a new car and my fuel cost and my mobile and telecom bills are borne by my company", but after the 40,000 bit she simply started typing and was not interested with the rest.
 
Then she typed something and told us to give fingerprints and returned our passport stating that she did not find we have enough ties here.
 
Do you think it was rejected as my salary shown was too low?
 
Now within the next month I am supposed to become the partner of my family business. I will be the 50% partner of the firm. The turnover of my company is not huge, but around 10 crores per year. Now if I apply the next time with this updated fact as I will have the deeds and the balance sheet, which are correct do I have a chance of getting a visa. I will apply maybe after quite some time, and not immediately. As for my wife, she was not asked anything at all, except why she had been to Japan to which she answered that it was for leisure with parents before we were married. She works with Wipro and earns around 73000 per month. Will she face problem next time she goes for the interview as her visa has been rejected once? Or should she apply for a tourist visa separately the next time? Or should she accompany me as I can then show that I have a business here in which I have half the stake and I would come back. Please help me understand if all this will help.

B1 Visa Rejection Twice in one Year


Hi Friends, I want to share my story and experience. I had applied B1 Visa from an organisation around a year back and i was refused. I was given a letter states a reason being "214b".The interviewer did not give me enough time to put my case across. I am shocked that how people can judge someone's purpose in just half a minute. I think they are powerful than god. They seem so relaxed and calm but never figured that they are shattering someone's dreams. So, that was one half of the story.


Now the second part is more funny. I applied again and will tell what happened after some lines... WATCH FOR IT.......


I reached US embassy at 8:15 AM and finally able to reach till the first window at around 9 AM. There i had interviewed by young Indian lady who seemed more nervous than me. She was just supposed to check my passport and staple the passport and the application form. Then another lady came and helped her and asked her to ask me some questions. So she asked the purpose of my visit. From there, the Q & A round started.


From there i went to finger printing section. The best and relaxed time of visa interview. Then i came across 50 yr old lady already rejected 2 visas while i was standing there.


she directly asked me why was my visa rejected earlier and how my case is different this time. She did not convince with my 2 mns answer and finally rejected my visa.

2 apply for B2 visa

Hi i was refused for US tourist visa which i had applied with my fiance 15 days back in which we were sponsoring ourselves. We both are working and i am also doing my MBA. However it was rejected.

Now i have re applied for B2 visa again alone in which my sister who is working in a GCC country is sponsoring me ,she works for an alirline she already hold a US tourist visa B2 n have traveled to US before. 

I live with my mother alone in PK. one sister is here who is married but lives separate.

Is there any suggestion to go about with the interview .. what type of questions should i expect? ?

Subject: Issue of business visa for Mr. <My name> of <My company name>

Leveraging our services, our clients are able to cost effectively develop their innovative software solutions and lead their respective markets.

<My company name in India> handles our offshore software development projects. For <My Company name> to serve its clients, it is imperative that our India based senior professionals visit our clients to learn their software development requirements. Since all our clients are US based, these <My company name> professionals have to visit US, typically for period of 6 to 8 weeks each time. In each visit, they are entirely focused on learning the specifics of client’s project requirements.

One such senior professional of our team Mr. <My name> is leading the software development work for our Texas based client <Client company name>. To start a new software product development for <Client company name>, Mr. <My name> needs to be in Austin, starting November. 2011.

We would highly appreciate your issuing a visa to Mr. <my name> enabling him to visit <Client name> team in Austin, Texas.

 

 

I want to apply second time again after waiting 3-4 weeks. This time I will take appointment in Mumbai.

Please suggest if the documents are not adequate. My main purpose is to get training, attained meeting between our client <Client name> and end users of product to know their work culture. All work related to development and testing of the product that client <Client name> is using is conducted in India.

 

I am married and has one son of 3 years. I am living in Pune with my wife and son and do not have any intention to live there more than 2 months.

 

Interview:

I did not know that the VO is US guy and how VO decision is depends most on what you talk in interview rather than what is written in you company/ client letters.

 

I had planned to say Good morning to VO when my turn up but when I went in front window VO himself ask me How r u doing?

me: I am doing good. (Did not said so confidently, and again forgot to ask him How r u?)

 

Before I say How r u?, he started asking questions. He took only ½ minutes of interview.

 

VO: Why are you going US?

Me: To know the work culture of client and for requirement gathering.

I was suppose to tell there for training purpose only but at that time I thought that as it is already written in my letters then why again to mention it. I thought if I add more reasons it will help me to get approve.

 

VO: Why only you?

Me: They have one enhancement and I need to collect the requirement.

 

I think I should not answer like this. I made blunder here. Actually our company has routine policy to send each employee for training once and I should tell that “now it is my turn to go and get training. Once I return to India I will use the knowledge got from training and meetings for quality assurance of the product. “

If I answer like this will it help me to get B1 US visa?

 

VO: Why for this period? (6-8 weeks has been written in letters).

I was little bit confused here that what to answer.

Me: As the client has an enhancement on which I am suppose to work there fore I need to go there and collect the requirement in this period.

 

I think he was not clear with my answer or my points went in negative numbers for this answer. He again asked me the same question.

 

VO: Why for this period?

I repeated the same thing because I was totally confused this time why he asking this question twice.

Me: They have an enhancement on which I need to work and I need to collect requirement for the same in this period and complete the enhancement.

I think I lost my mind at that time and made one more blunder and “complete the enhancement” came out of my mouth.

Up to now I did not realize what blunder I had made. VO went and come back within a second saying that your visa has been refused and handed over a letter including the reason of rejection. Reason mentioned in the refusal letter is “that your intended activities in US would be consistent with the visa status”.

 

I was totally shocked. Because 8 teammates have got the B1 US visa for the same reason and with same documents. They successfully got the training and came back within the mentioned period (i.e. 6-8 weeks)

 

Questions for you:

What percentage of chances I have to get visa when I apply second time?

What was the reason of refusal of my visa? Was my answer are stupid so that it did not convince VO that I will not stay in US more that mentioned period?

What should I add more to get Visa approved?

 

Please help.

B1/B2 rejection

Hello Umar bhai,

I am a final year medicine student at a prestigious institution in Karachi.I applied for a B1/B2 visa when i was in fourth year at my uncle's clinic.He usually carries out fourth year rotations and he sent me the same letter.Unfortunately the visa got rejected because he knew he was my uncle.I did a blunder at that point and I understood that.

Now i want to apply again for a clinical elective.I applied with my whole family back in 2000 and got rejected at that time too.So till now i have two rejections and this has clearly ruined my confidence.

i am now UAE resident.Do you think applying from there will improve my chances? if I get a letter from any U.S university for an elective?

Please guide me.

Thankyou.

B2 Visa rejected from Toronto

Hi,

B2 Visa was rejected from my full family last august,2011 (me, my wife & daughter).

 I am currently in Canada for work permit (intercompany transfer). My wife is also working for one multinational Indian company. Both me & my wife has canadian work permit.

 the interview was like this:

Me: good afternoon Mam

VO: Good after noon.

VO: do u have any offer letter in Canada.

Me: Handed over the offer letter to the VO. (wich is from Canada location of my organization valid for one year). though I am working for the same organization (for India) for more than 5 years in India.

VO: have you travelled to US before?

Me: no

VO: Seems you came here very recently (it was 4 month then).

VO: Why you have not applied the visa from India?

 Me: I forgot to tell the VO that I was in china on Company travel before I came to Canada. Do didn't get sufficient time to apply for US B2 visa from India.

 And I told I planned to visit US(place like NY, Chicago) since it is very close to my place.

VO: We can not issue visa this time.

 One of our relative is citizen of US and staying over there for 30 years. We have invitation letter from him also. But did not get the change to show that.

 Please suggest, if I re apply once again, then what is the chance for me to get the visa?

B1 Revocation now appearing for H1B


Hi Umar,


Earlier I had appeared for an L1A blanket visa interview which got rejected due to wrong category.The visa officer also revoked my B1 visa without citing any reasons.Then I sent an email to the consulate asking for the reason of revocation and they mentioned it as 214g.


Now I have my H1B visa lined up and I want to know will this B1 revocation impact?Also while revoking the visa officer neither gave me any slip nor provided any reason for revocation.


Please let me know how should I answer if questioned about this revocation.


Thanks a lot,


Shaavi

Same case as yours


Hi Shaavi,



I have exactly same case as yours.My previous H1B was rejected and the VO revoked my existing B1?B2 as well without any reasons.Now I am in process of a new H1B.Can you please call me on 9971711449 if possible.

Visa rejected query

Hi,
I have applied for the student visa 0n 20.june 2011 for germany. After 1 month visa
comes but after 1 month they send me rejection with out given any
reason. I have checked from auslanderbeurde(Foreigners Authority) about my visa documents, he
said that they have not send documents to germany and made decision in
pakistan.

I have given all the required documents with financial proof:Tranferred
amount in deutsche bank+ Uncle Verpelichtungserklarung(Sponsorship) with legal
binding for any further/ immanency support.

My interview was good along with documents and I have given all answers
confidently and satisfied them on all grounds and areas. They checked my
documents and told me to deposit visa fee for visa processing.

Normally if their is still any issue in documents then embassy send
rejection within 1 week but if documents are ok then they send the
documents to auslanderberude(Foreigners Authority) in germany for further processing. After 4
week I must be getting visa but case is very different they have send
rejection letter without concerning auslenderberude in germany and made
decison in pakistan. I am concerned with this that how they can take
descion in pakistan without concerning asulanderberude in germnay when
all documents are ok.

Visa rejected twice under 214(b)

Hi,

 My F1 Visa has been rejected twice under 214b..

In my first VI.. My mistake was that I gave long answers with too much information so the VO thought that my answers were scripted..

In the 2nd VI I got the same VO.. She asked me couple of questions and then transferred me to another VO.. She asked me Questions like:

1> Which course?

2> HOw much in GRE?

 3> Do you have friends and family in US

4> Why UTD

And then she rejected my Visa without giving me a reason.

Q. 1 > What do you think I should do now?

 Q. 2> How many times can I apply for VIsa under F1?

My application for B1/B2 visa (to attend a week long conference in USA, sponsored by the company holding conference) was kept in pending status (221g green form) after the Visa interview. Now the conference date is over, and my Visa status is still unknown. Will they give me the Visa whenever the Administrative Processing is completed?

visa rejection

Hi,

I applied at Emory for an Observership for month of June 2011 and got it.. for that i applied for B1/B2 visit visa in April ' 11..  Unfortunately it was rejected.. The Officer told me that " i don't qualify for the visit visa right now"....

I don't know why they rejected me....i showed them all my documents... the one thing she was emphasizing was what are my plans after graduation? And secondly my sister is doing her fellowship at New York.. so they were like do u want to follow your sisters footsteps? My uncle was also doing his fellowship at Emory hospital at that time... so she asked me if my Observership Department Head knew my uncle??

Can you please HELP ME out here... im lost... Should i apply for December 2011 in a different hospital? 

And what are my chances of getting the visa NOW!!!

Sponser

i have got admit ,now i am preparing for interview, my question is can i show my sister husband as my secondary sopnsor along with my father as my father alone does not have much bank balance

How much bank balance does

ayaz's picture

How much bank balance does your father have exactly and how long is the duration of your stay in US? You don't need to show extravagant amounts of balance. Besides they rarely ask you to show bank balance but it's always important to be well prepared. Anything around 5000$ for a month's stay would be quite useful.

F1 visa rejected twice

Umar Sir,

 I was rejected f1 visa twice under section 214b. First on 29 dec 2010 and second time on 6 jan 2011. though I got full funding for doing my MS. At the time of Interview I was afraid and when the visa officer asked me that in how many university I had applied then i confused and not able to tell him the correct name of university 

Can you please tell us what

umar's picture

Can you please tell us what is section 214b?

I am very busy these days and won't be replying to anymore queries. Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. All the best.

Section 214b is a part of the

Section 214b is a part of the Immigration act for visa aspirants which states that " Every alien shall be presumed to be an immigrant until he establishes to the satisfaction of the consular officer, at the time of application for admission, that he is entitled to a nonimmigrant status." 

                    which means that one is considered as an immigrant if he is applying for a non- immigrant visa, until he/she him/herself proves otherwise. i-e One has to try their best to prove themselves as a non immigrant in order to be eligible for a visa. And to prove that you have to show enough ties to your home country that prove that you will be returning back anyway after completion of your program. Any thing that shows that you wont return, weakens ur chances of getting a visa. 

rejection

hello umar bhai,

im a final yr student at dmc, i had applied with my mom for a b1/b2 visa on 8th feb, they gave the visa to my mom and rejected me saying that im not settled enough right now and i should apply when i am a doctor. I had made a blunder on my visa form, my whole family had been rejected a visa in yr 2000 and i was only 12 at that time and i was confused if i should mention on the form that i have been rejected, i wrote havent been rejected and that was a mistake on my part. Now i have an elective from LIJ for sept, hopefully ill get an official letter from them by the end of this month, now im afraid that whether i should apply for a visa immediately after i get all the documents because the interval between the two applications will be very less. What do u suggest?

applied to 12 universities; Will It adversely affect my VI

I have applied to 12 universities 10 on software and 2 on MIS.

 Will applying for different courses in universities adversely affect my chance of getting a F1 VISA.

 If the visa Officer asks me why I applied to so many colleges. How can I justify that.

Regards

Rahul

I reduced the number to 8

I'm the original poster of this message. I'm updating this post. I reduced the number of colleges to eight. Eventhough initially I short listed 12 universities, I only ended up applying to 8 because I already got an admit from my dream university.

But I was just wondering what is the average number of colleges an international student applies.

Hi, I have 8 colleges that

Hi,

I have 8 colleges that exactly matches my profile. I'm also applying to 4 other ambitious colleges like Carnegie melon, Cornell, TAMU. Will this large number of application stand in the way of my visa. It will be 12 colleges.I reeally really want to learn in a great college.

I'm not concerned that I applied to MIS and CS because of them are significantly close to my under graduation and Work experience. and both of them are closely related and are resonant with my career objective.

The specilaization that I was aiming for In CS is related to MIS, so both are the same thing.

After graduation I will come back to India and serve in my company bcoz I have already proved myself there to my superiors and myself and it would be easier for me to climb the professional ladder in this company.

So what are the docs that I must carry that are related to my work to the Visa interview.

f1 visa rejection

My f1 visa got rejected recently 2 times firstly on 21st December 2010 and again on 30th December 2010,for Baylor college of medicine.my course was starting from 3rd January.

I have done one month of elective in Albany Medical Center in neurology in October month on b1 visa and then i came back to India on 30th October.

now every time i apply for visa interview at the mumbai consulate for an elective,they ask me you have recently done elective and came back,why do you want to go again.

 Umar ji,please help me and give me a advice on how to tackle this situation.

i am having two electives one in albany and other in jefferson for April and May month.

You can mention them that

umar's picture

You can mention them that electives are away-rotations and not a one-time only course; as a medical student we are required to take multiple electives in various specialties!

My B1 Visa refused


Hi, my Business Visa got refused last week.


Visa Officer asked about my present company experience ( I answered 4Months) and previous company exp ( 2.5years) and other questions like purpose of traveling(for discussing business requirements), duration of stay(15-20ays) and monthly income in india (50K). Other countries travelled ( Qatar, UAE) finally VO said, unfortunately cant process my Visa today as per Section 214b.


I have total 6.5yrs of experience but I didnt get chance to explain and she didnt ask for any documents.


I really dont understand, why VO refused to give Visa.


Please help me can i re apply again and what could be the negative point.


Thanks

I am sorry Prashant there

umar's picture

I am sorry Prashant there seems to be a misunderstanding on your part. I have never been rejected for a visa; I dont need one! I have a green card!

Changing statement is generally not a wise idea as they have complete record of all your previous interview. It would be better if you can carry letters from your college/ hospital mentioning that you would come back to join your college/hospital after electives.

Apply again with a better paper work and better preparation of interview. Go through all the visa guidance articles on this website. Many people every year get visa after rejections.

I deleted your other comment because it was a duplicate. It's rare that anyone is rejected on an invitation letter from a place like Harvard but that's probably because there might have been a problem with your application details and your preparedness for the interview. We cannot guide you without additional detail so if you can kindly relay what documents you prepared and how you responded to the VO's interview, we can offer some advice.

i am worried if will rejected 2nd time for visit visa thn it will creat problm bc i have a plan to go for electives in FEB,MAR 2011.plz  tell me wht is beter for me

can u pl guide me??

dear sir,

    m a 3rd yr student from india preparing and planning for usmle.the day before yesterday my family's visitor visa was refused by the VO.usually they dont give the reason but she clarified tht as our petition has been filed we cant go at present but can go when the file opens.

    we had applied to attend the graduation ceremony of my sister(on f1 just for mentioning). now the twist is tht the person who has filed our petition,my maternal grandmom , permanantly shifted to india since last 3 yrs.nd there is no sponsorer in behalf of her, so even if file opens aftr 2-3 yr (expectedly),its not going to benefit us or especially me as my parents at this age (55) dont intend to shift permanently.and i have already crossed 21 so the other way round also it is useless 4 me.so crux of the talk is rather than helping me out,my petition is creating a big trouble in my way to secure B2 visa (tht actually m planning so early for my electives, CS exam and residency interviews.) and now even if i reapply the problem tends to remain same.

    so my Que is

1) wht should be my next step?

2) is there any provision for cancellation of family petition? wht is the procedure for tht?

By family petition, do you

By family petition, do you mean an immigration visa??? by f1, do you mean study visa or family priority 1 visa?

If it is a family priority 1 immigration visa, I am afraid as far as I know you cannot apply for a non-immigrant visa if you have a immigrant visa file pending! I am not an expert visa person... any professional might be able to provide a better answer!

1. wait for ur immigration. u can give ur steps before that if it is only few years away.

2. I m not aware of any... there must be some way...

You need to ask this question

umar's picture

You need to ask this question from elective co-ordinator or the respective department... that's why I always say you need to consult the elective co-ordinator for which visa you need to apply before applying for visa...

visa query

Hi Umar,

     I have been accepted for MSKCC elective for the month of may.I had my  visitor's visa rejected in nov 2008 when I applied along with my parents to attend my brother's graduation commencement ceremony.All the three of us had been rejected.Now my brother is still staying in USA and he is on F1 visa extension(for some optional training).While filling my visa application,I mentioned the same i.e. he is still there and he is a non immigrant.My visa date is on Feb 25.How should I support my strong ties to India and what are the chances of getting visa?Please reply.

 

 

 Plz go through the visa

 Plz go through the visa section and visa guidance in detail... thanks!

I am very busy these days and won't be replying to anymore queries. Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. All the best.

@ your query, i personaly

@ your query, i personaly think f1 visa with your brother is in itself a 'non-imigrant' type, it should not pose at a threat as long as everthing falls with in the prescribed 'legal' methods for extension etc. all general rules like bank statement, affidevit of return and deans letter stating your undergraduate status, and your curriculum mandatory requrement- should apply in your case. you might want to check the visa section of this site.

Further i am also in the process of applying for an elective at MSKCC can you confirm if they require NYS eligibility letter?. and what is their 'post-acceptance' required documentation .

what is there usual processing time for an application, this will guide me as when I should submit my documents. I have all the application materials ready ! I can apply even tomoro, and I am aiming for august/september 2010. There website says apply in april for these months , but that seems kinda late to me.Jus drop ur 2 cents, it can help me :)

thanks

Hi,         I think MSKCC has

Hi,

 

      I think MSKCC has made step1 compulsory from next year.My post reached them on nov 21,2009 and they replied to me on dec 31 sheduling me a telephonic interview...Only our strong intention to learn somthing abt cancer secures us a slot.we must convince them that we are very much interested to take part in the particular elective.we have to be specific about our speciality like hematology etc....After confirmation,they will ask us a infection control training certificate which costs around 30$ and nysed eligibilty letter (another 30$).

 

Note:only 100$ application fee even if we apply for 3 months

 

I hope its useful to u

 thanks for the valuable

thanks for your help, it was very useful, as well as ur experienced based insight review of their selection criteria. I am aware of their reacent Step1 req starting frm july 2010 onwards and fortunately I can fulfil that. To your knowledge, do they have a limit for  max no electives you can apply for? as dis info iz less obvious on deir website and Which for most places is 8 weeks or less.

visa rejection due to stronger tie to usa than india

hi umarbhaiya how r u?

i had an visa interview on 4th jan 2010. i appeared in visa interview for b2 visa.visa counsellar (she) only saw my D156, 157 FORM.she asked me about my brother ,father and mother.i replied to her that my brother is  doctor in USA and he is also USA citizen.my father and my mother is retired persons.they are greenholder.they already have put file of mine for immigration visa in 2005.she also asked me about my mbbs i have already completed total duration of course?i told that i completed 4th year and total is 5 & 1/2 year course.she told me that we do not offer other type of visa to person whose name's file is already put for immigration visa.where are u right now living? i said that i am living with my uncle.SHE SAID NO ME FOR  MY B2 VISA BECAUSE YOU ARE A STRONG TIE TO US THAN INDIA.                                                                  

 she did not  see   my accepatance letter of UMASS for Feb'sand March's clinical elective and my home college's  letter  state that  i have to come back india to complete my remaining internship after completion of my clinical elective at UMASS in USA.I also deposited 10 lakhs ruppees in the form of bank fd and in the post office.and bank fd can not be withdrawl by anyone without my sign and physicical appearance in front of bank officer.

SHE SAID ME THAT I AM NOT ELLIGIBLE FOR B2 VISA. PLEASE  GIVE  ME SOME ADVICE. SHOULD I AGAIN REPLY FOR THAT?TELL ME SOME SENTANCE THAT PROVE THAT I HAVE COME BACK INDIA.PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE BHAIYA AND ANY ONE HAVE IDEA ABOUT THAT AND/OR SAME TYPE OF EXPERIENCE, WELCOME  YOU FOR THAT.

 I m sorry hardik but u r not

umar's picture

 I m sorry hardik but u r not eligible for any non-immigrant visa. While u have applied for an immigrant visa, u stay ineligible for all other type of visas... so the best option for u is to wait for ur immigration visa to come... 

I am very busy these days and won't be replying to anymore queries. Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. All the best.

hi hardik sorry for your sad

umar's picture

hi hardik

sorry for your sad experience.

I also had a same problem. I got an immigration visa in 2004 and could not go to US before that on ANY visa. My father is waiting for his immigration visa; hence he cannot go to US on ANY visa; especially non-immigrant visa.

Keep in mind according to the best of my knowledge, YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR ANY OTHER U.S. VISA, IF YOU ARE ALREADY WAITING FOR AN IMMIGRATION VISA.

Suggestion for you: You should wait for your immigration visa before going for electives. By applying for non-immigrant visa, you are weakening your immigration visa case and your non-immigrant visa case is already weak because you have already filed for immigrant visa.

I don't mean to discourage you but I have tried to provide you the best possible advice/ information according to the best of my knowledge.

For those who don't know:

Immigration visa: Visa on which if u go to US, get a green card. You must have a close relative as a US citizen who can sponsor you. You can see US visa section on their website, for further details.

Non-immigrant visa: Visa on which if u go to US, you don't get any green card/ or become a US citizen.

I am very busy these days and won't be replying to anymore queries. Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. All the best.

My thoughts!

From my experiences, Umar bhai I came to know that it is not a fact rule that you cannot get a non-immigrant visa if your application for immigrant visa is under process.

My friend who is a doc now doing internship(Foundation year 1 job) in UK after doing his MBBS from India, applied for this B1/2 visa and got it. His immigrant petition was under process. He applied from UK for the visitor visa.

He prepared like hell for the visa. positive points were his good F1 salary in UK, family's good finacial standing in UK, he had booked return flights , hotels, planned the whole itinerary, took letter of invitation from his uncle in USA. They checked all his documents thorughly.

During his IV they were very strict and theVO had to consult/discuss somebody in the office back before granting his visa.

My advice would be to consult a good visa consultant before again embarking again on visa retrial. A good one i heard lots of paraises is himesh. his address is His address is -

1. GIE CONSULTANTS
MR HIMISH BHATNAGAR
K-13/A Green Park Extension
New Delhi – 110016
Tel No: 011- 26180125, 27

I was planning to consult him before my visa IV, but he was away in US during that time, i did on my own. you can read ppl's experiences abt him on this page http://www.rxpgonline.com/postt12551.html

Best Wishes

thanks medisid for the

thanks medisid for the update... it may be because of the difference of countries... because I myself applied for immigrant visa and I was told we cannot apply for any other visa but that was about 3-4 years ago... anyhow that might be old rule or a rule only for ppl from Pakistan.... m not sure about it... anyhow thanks for the update...

I had been rejected for my US Visa previously

hello dear, hiya, i am santosh from india.. i really thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a good and helpful website.. i had a query that i have applied to yale university for electives and have got the acceptance letter from them .. but i have a history of a previous US visa rejection 2 years before when i had applied it for some other reason..... and they said that i was a potential immigrant .. bla bla bla..now my question is that what are the possibilities of getting a US visa on the basis of this ELECTIVE PLACEMENT.... if i now have proved to have proper TIES BACK to my country... ??? please help .. thank you .... Santosh...

hi santosh thanks a lot for

umar's picture

hi santosh

thanks a lot for your kind words...

well honestly speaking a strong US tie might still harm your visa acceptance chances but now when you have an electives acceptance and if you can justify your strong ties back to your country... your chances are same as someone else without any visa rejection history.. again... this is my personal opinion according to my personal experience... it might be somewhat different but I beleive it wont affect you much this time if you prove your strong home-ties...
