- The most frequent reason for a visa refusal is that the official thinks you may not return to your home country.
- It is impossible to say exactly what evidence you should take to convince the official that you will go home because applicants' circumstances vary greatly.
- Think about your ties to your home country: 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?
- Consular officers have the responsibility for issuance or denial of visas. If your visa is denied, you can re-apply.
- If you decide to re-apply, you should be prepared to show additional evidence or explain in a different way how your situation has changed since the first application.
- You should try at least twice. If you are refused a second time, the probability that a third try will work is not very high.
Additional information on visa denials is available at the Department of State website.
