Why a Visa May be Denied
A visa may be used by an individual who is not a United States citizen to work, study, or travel in the U.S. for a limited period of time. While visitor visas are usually not hard to receive, some applications are denied. As a result, an individual’s travel plans, business arrangements, or academic pursuits may be seriously impacted. When a visa application is denied, consulting with an experienced immigration attorney could be critical to resolving whatever issues may have led to the application being denied.
Reasons a Visa Is Denied
Although many individuals who apply for temporary visas to travel around the United States are successful in securing their permits, some individuals and applications may be flagged and denied for a variety of reasons. Reasons an application may be denied include:
- Health problems
- Incomplete documents
- Previous immigration issues
- Criminal history
- Potential security problems
If a temporary visa has been denied for any reason, it may be beneficial for an individual to talk with an immigration attorney in order to understand why his or her visa was denied and whether or not an appeal should be filed. An experienced immigration attorney can help applicants address any deficiencies in their application and then assist in the re-application process.
