Visa Rejection: Other Cases


To conclude our discussion on VISA rejection, let us look at the other grounds when aliens become ineligible for a VISA in the United States. There are different grounds related to why your United States VISA may have been rejected. In this matter, it is important that you know why your VISA may have been rejected and if you have control over it.

Your VISA application may have been rejected because of a handful of reasons. This article gives you the legal basis on documentary requirements which may be the reason why your VISA may have been rejected.

Section 212(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act

(a) Classes of Aliens Ineligible for Visas or Admission.-Except as otherwise provided in this Act, aliens who are inadmissible under the following paragraphs are ineligible to receive visas and ineligible to be admitted to the United States:

(I) who is not in possession of a valid unexpired immigrant visa, reentry permit, border crossing identification card, or other valid entry document required by this Act, and a valid unexpired passport, or other suitable travel document, or document of identity and nationality if such document is required under the regulations issued by the Attorney General under section 211(a), or

(II) whose visa has been issued without compliance with the provisions of section 203, is inadmissible.
