VISA DENIALS

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 is available at the Department of State website and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
