US visitor visa rejected for my sister

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

Few weeks back my sister went for B1\B2 visa interview. Purpose of visit is my graduation ceremony. My parents went for the interview on a separate date and they got it approved. My sister was asked questions about her husband and work. After which she was given a denial form. Her husband is working in India and she has a 4 month old baby. I did send an invitation from my university along with my enrollment letter and i20 as proof. I don't know what went wrong. While filling up the application form, my sister mistakenly chose self sponsor instead of giving husband's details. Currently my sister doesn't work anywhere. So I'm planning to reapply with her husband as her sponsor. I wish to know the potential causes for the rejection and any advice on current application and interview tips would be of great help. Thank you.

Probably the CO believed that she was more than likely going to use this trip to earn some $$$ in the US, because leaving an infant home for some period of time does not make sense...

Most likely your sister was considered as potential immigrant to US. There may be few or combination of following items led to her denial

 

  • She went alone for visa interview. That separated her case from genuine case for parents and was considered as immigrating in side deal
  • Mistake on form. She displayed to have no ties in India even though she was not earning and have family.
  • Not having job in home country is considered as one of red flags to have immigration intent.
  • Not traveling with her own family and rather going with parent is something falls in grey area as "Why doesn't she want to be with 4 month old baby?"
  • Some other issue with documents/finances
  • In this kind of cases where you are not earning in US on permanent basis, can raise red flag as who is going to pay for sister's expences in case something bad happens

As I said, who realistically (and logically) leaves a newborn just to wander half way around the world and applaud some relative's graduation...unless there was a different incentive waiting in the wings....
