Visa Denial

  • If you are denied a visa after your first application, you should always re-apply.
  • Contact your consulate for special re-application instructions. You may have to wait before you can re-apply.  
  • You cannot apply more than 120 days before the date you plan to enter the United States.

Advice for Re-applying

You should be prepared to show additional evidence or explain in a different way how your situation has changed since the first application. Think again about your ties to your home country. These might include family relationships, job, home or farm ownership, other commitments. Is there any additional evidence that you could present? Did you explain your situation clearly? Did you answer all the questions?

You can learn more about visa denials at the U.S. Department of State.
