Sister In Law B1/B2 denied - Should she reapply?

Recommended Posts

My wife's sister applied for a B1/B2 visa to visit us in USA for a month. However the complication was, she had taken a break from her job and is divorced.  I think CO felt that she is a prime candidate to come to US and get married to a US citizen. She definitely is not in any intention to do so. She has kid in India. Is it a good idea to re-apply? She doesn't want to re-apply if the chances are very slim

there is no point....She would be wasting the $160...because the first question asked of her will be, 'what has changed in your circumstances since the last application? '

With no job, no spouse in home country to come back it is difficult to prove she enough ties to the home country to come back. First time was a risk and 2nd time you are making her look desperate for a Visa.

The only thing that has changed is - She applied last time for herself and her son (who is in 8th grade). She applied with her son and she thought she can take a visa for him and then potentially travel later after he finishes 10th grade. Now she is thinking if applying for herself and leaving the son back in India would create a case.

Again she wants to visit US before she takes up a new job in 2020 but then she doesn't want to reapply if this is not a significant change

such an action is not a change in circumstance...in fact, it will lead to a swift denial...as claiming to leave a child behind as a guarantee is expressly dealt with in State Dept policy....it won't work...why? Because thousands of single people have left their child(ren) behind, ran off to the US, found 'true love' in under 20 minutes, got married to a USC, then petitioned the child to follow....happens all the time.
