What are options if my F1/H1B refused/rejected?

What are options if my F1/H1B refused/rejected?

Why do I get 214b or 221g and how go to next?

We did analysis for few Boys and earlier 3rd attempts failed and got in 4th attempt. Hence decided to write our experiences here to help any one out there who are about to appear for first time and second time will be beneficial too.

 Even if you are appearing for 3rd or 4th attempt then read this post and is confident and do more hard work. Good luck.

Visa Interview must be attended at the nearest place to the region where passport is issued. Although a person can approach any US consulate regarding Visa, it is advisable to visit the consulate based in the state where the passport is originated.

What is 214b?

http://visarefusal.com/214b/

What is 221g?

http://visarefusal.com/221g/

Here you go:

If your US visa got rejected earlier, you need to find out why. Unless there
 is a strong reason, they will not reject it. You need to find out the reason
 and overcome it and must be able to provide them evidence that you surpass
 your ineligibility to obtain US Visa.
 
 After being found ineligible (Rejected 214b) for a visa, you may reapply in
 the future. If you reapply for a visa after being found ineligible, with the
 exception of 221(g) refusals, you must submit a new visa application and pay
 the visa application fee again. If you were found ineligible under section
 214(b) of the INA, you should be able to present evidence of significant
 changes in circumstances since your last application.
 
 Well, The USA is the only country right now which will allow you to work
 after finishing your education. The European Countries, UK and Australia
 have denied work permit to International Students post completion of their
 education in their respective countries. You can get educated there but you
 can’t stay there or work there after your education and that would become
 difficult for you to repay your education loan.
 
 So, you better try for US only but make sure you find out the exact reason
 why you were rejected earlier.

Writing a post for Students who received 214b and going for F1 attempt in 4th attempt.

We have been guiding students for F1 and 214b or IT Professionals on 221g and most of them are getting Visas issued and shared their experiences.

Hence I thought of share it to you and all so that it would be helpful to the students who are attending F1/H1B in first attempt will NOT do simple mistakes is the idea of this new upcoming post/article.

Forget how much it hurts but try again. Learn from mistakes. Every Day is Second Change.

TIP1:

Visa Interview must be attended at the nearest place to the region where passport is issued. Although a person can approach any US consulate regarding Visa, it is advisable to visit the consulate based in the state where the passport is originated.

TIP2:

Please understand what is 214b? Why did you receive it?

http://www.visarefusal.com/214b/

Stop identify visa officer by Gender wise and just wish by first name so listen carefully to catch his/her first name. Do not use Sir/Madam.

People in USA address any one by First Name or Last Name with Mr. or Mrs. No body uses SIR or MADAM like in India as suffix to everyone, which is British English.

Points to remember for Indian Students or H1B aspirants in India while talking to people in America: when you talk to someone in USA, Be cool and confident during interviews. Answer only the questions asked, talking slowly and confidently. Do not ever give more information than what asked for. Please remember that people have as much trouble understanding our accent as we have theirs. Talking slowly and confidently is the key.

 Example: I’d call everyone by their first name. Calling someone as Mr. Jordan is too formal and no one prefers that. If someone introduces themselves to you as ‘I am John Smith’ or ‘I am Steffi Graf’, you’d say, ‘Hi John’ or ‘Hi Steffi’. Do not be too submissive to call Sir/Madam. That is ugly and low-balling yourself.

TIP3:

Please give a gap between next attempts and write TOEFL.IELFTS & GRE/GMAT again to attain better scores. Check with Universities about I-20s validity etc.

Very primarily, you need to go through the IELTS/TOFEL exam again and must score high or else you will never be able to go.

TIP4:

Now to positively overcome in his next attempt. He needs to make sure about the following.

1) Appearance and Attire

2) Way of Speaking, you need to have Professional and Polished Communication

3) Boldness and Increased Confidence Level – Free without any nervousness.

4) High Amount of Money (incase amount is low to the college fees)

5) No One word Answers like Yes and No.

6) So, you must be very well prepared with high level of caliber and competencies

7) No bad looks and peeps during queue or in their observatory surveillance.

8) You have drilled a lot at home to meet their level of expectation in all the ways (scores, communication skills, confidence or boldness etc.

 9) When the score is Good, Best University will welcome with admission.

TIPS FOR H1BS – SECOND ATTEMPT after 221g received

For H1Bs

http://www.visarefusal.com/221g/

1 Please understand why did you receive 221g and what is it all about?

  1. Check your check list carried items to the Visa Interview and 221g form item ticked.

  1. Call your Indian Employer or Employer in USA and convey the message and discuss.

  1. Send by courier or fax the required documents from your end if need to submit it or if not, follow up with your employer until he/she answered the 221g query.

  1. In many cases, 221g means that are the end and can forget it in India and approach new employer for H1Bs. But in some cases, if employer answered to the queries on time to concerned officers through Attorney will be cleared and you will be called for Visa Interview again or passport can be handed over at the drop box what ever are the latest rule changes.

6 In case asked to attend in person again carry all documents what ever you were carried in the first H1B visa Interview plus any additional documents required as per 221g form and current pay checks as well.

7.Remember:  What ever carried the documents also must be or need to produce at POE (Port of Entry) at USA airports for the first time landing here.

I wrote from my experiences and I trust this information would be helpful to get your VISA. Good Luck and God bless you.

I did not include the below

If they ask you have agriculture lands,

he must not simply say Yes. He should have told; we have huge property of agricultural lands and we have high capability to afford my study and living expenditure in USA.

I am perfectly aware of it and prepared with adequate financial support. (They need to understand he has enough and sufficient revenue to accomplish his education

8) He answered very amateur on courses he learnt,

normally they never ask technical questions, but they wanted to twist and

test him before finalizing their decision to reject him and he could not meet their level of expectation.

Here is the best case who got visa in 4th attempt after consulted watching my videos after 3rd attempt of F1 VISA

Need help regarding MS in US and Career guidance

11/19/2013

I am from Hyderabad. I have seen few videos of yours regarding Student visa, life in USA and few others. They were informative.

Actually I tried for F1 visa for Spring 2011 and Fall 2012, but unfortunately I couldn’t get visa thrice.

I took few wrong steps after my B. Tech, which were exactly same as you mentioned in videos. Like, not planning for next step, what if I do not get Visa? and not trying for jobs.

After visa rejections, I did few odd jobs, which were not related to my field like Tech support (BPO), US IT Recruiter. Simultaneously I learned Testing (Selenium).

Now I am looking for jobs in Testing for 2 months and started planning for Masters in US again. Started preparing for GRE and IELTS, will give exams in January for sure and apply for Univ in Jan itself. So I need your help, in my planning sir..

Sir, what will be the chances of getting visa fourth time and will my previous rejections effect in getting visa.

Facing tough time in my life, need help from people like you sir.

We need to know the reasons for Visa rejections. There will be set of various reasons. If we know the reasons clearly, we can analyze and will know the chances of overcoming before going to reappear for Visa interview.

Where did you attend the Visa interview? Which Consulate in India?

Visa officer didn’t give any reasons. But I believe, my confidence was the major reason, I was nervous in the interview and next my academics. I have only 61% in my acads.

 But my interview was not more than 2-3 mins in all the three attempts.

 question was like,

 1st attempt

 ————–

 Which university?

 Who is sponsoring you?

 Whats your dad and income?

 I didnt answer this question… like first I told 3 lakhs PA and then corrected to 6 Lkhs, as it 6 lakhs was mentioned in the CA statement.

 Whats your acads?

 2nd attempt

 —————-

 almost same questions

 This time he said like…. only 61%….

 3rd attempt for fall 2011

 ————–

 only one question was added.

 Any change from last 6months

 I told that I am working for a company. she didn’t allow me to explain the job profile

Dear Subscriber, 

It seems like there is a hitch in your answer and looks like you went to Visa consecutively.

They rejected you based on showing less income of your father. The possible living cost of an individual in USA is $1000 per month and additional University fee. I believe this might be the reason for your Visa denial. Please find out from your friends/circle how much they showed.

Next time try to show more income and add additional sponsors. If you got to spend 65K Indian Rupees in USA, just realize how much your father should be earning to meet your expense and your University fee.

They will not see if you will do part time after you arrive in USA because part time jobs at University may not be guaranteed.

Best Wishes,

KE. 

Hello sir,

Thank you for the reply.

Consulate: Hyderabad (All three attempts). Americans took my interview.

 Univ: FDU, Teaneck,NJ (All three attempts).

Visa officer didn’t give any reasons.

But I believe, my confidence was the major reason, I was nervous in the interview and next my academics. I have only 61% in my acads. But my interview was not more than 2-3 mins in all the three attempts. In all the cases, they didn’t check any documents.

question were like,

1st attempt

————–

Which university?

Who is sponsoring you?

Whats your dad and income?

I didnt answer this question properly… like first I told 3 lakhs PA and then corrected to 6 Lkhs, as it 6 lakhs was mentioned in the CA statement.

Whats your acads?

Sir,

Thank you for reply.

I told visa officer that my sponsors are my parents. Funds I mentioned was around 30 Lakhs (Rents, FD’s, liquid cash). Were my university fee and living expenses was only 20 Lakhs for 2 years.

Visa officer asked me about my father income. Not my parents income. There I got confused,answered 3 lakhs first and then corrected 6 lakhs. I mentioned father income as 6 lakhs in DS 160.

At the end of interview, visa officer gave me a white slip like, stating the reasons that  y visa was refused under section 214(b)

http://www.visarefusal.com/214b/

Dear Subscriber,

Based on your responses, our analysis seems to be correct. Your past DS Forms will be live in the records. US is not advisable for you until next year. Better try for European Countries if you think its getting late. Thank you

Sir, Can I plan for next fall (2014 august)?. May be I will go for visa in May/June 2014. Will that would be helpful for me?

Hi Subscriber,

I have gone through the PDF that you sent and here is my analysis and anticipated questions on next F1 Visa Interview:

The PDF attached clearly says, you do not have sufficient funds so when you go for next visa attempt

the first question is: what is the difference? Your answer must be funds

Now the next question is how did you get those funds?(Extra funds) because your existing funds are not sufficient is what clearly the query that you have received is explaining.

So now you have to justify how do you get the extra funds?

Like I said on phone, try for MNCs or US based Testing based companies for H1B.

Keep open your options for higher studies to Canada/Australia/New Zeeland/Europe etc.

Thanks,

Kumar.

Later he tried and got the VISA in 4th attempt and sent the below note:

Hi sir, hope you remember we spoke earlier abt my visa. I reapplied F1 visa this time and my visa is approved for southern new Hampshire university, Manchester, NH. Heading to Manchester in this August. Really thanks for the motivation and help sir. I need ur help and guidance further in my career.

He looks like pretty narrow minded person and he has no detail orientation.

I understood for the first time he got failed due to his less score and second time he told he has agricultural lands and he doesn’t have much experience on the courses he learnt. Overall he failed to be confident on what he learnt and he failed to prove his affordability.

Americans don’t like to have the students of India to sell the Agriculture lands for education and also they have some poor feedback on people from rural and cultivation background. They don’t have him to shell out so much of money for his education is what I understand from their perspective and again the have track of his previous rejections and reasons. The Visa Officer can review the notes upfront on their computer about his precious rejection reasons, the reasons could be strong. They never tell us the reason upfront but just give plain form to guess where he went wrong.

Now to positively overcome in his next attempt. He needs to make sure about the following.

1) Appearance and Attire

2) Way of Speaking, He needs to have Professional and Polished Communication

3) Boldness and Increased Confidence Level – Free without any nervousness.

4) High Amount of Money

5) No One word Answers like Yes and No. If they ask you have agriculture lands, he must not simply say Yes. He should have told, we have huge property of agricultural lands and we have high capability to afford my study and living expenditure in USA. I am perfectly aware of it and prepared with adequate financial support. (They need to understand he has enough and sufficient revenue to accomplish his education

6) Very Primarily, he needs to go through the IELTS/TOFEL exam again and must score high or else he will never be able to go.

7) When the score is Good, Best University will welcome with admission.

8) He answered very amateur on courses he learnt, normally they never ask technical questions but they wanted to twist and test him before finalizing their decision to reject him and he could not meet their level of expectation.

9) So, he must be very well prepared with high level of caliber and competencies

10) No bad looks and peeps during que or in their observatory surveillance.

Most of the credible information and authentic information is available on internet. Many people speak with little knowledge and many speak of what they are unsure. Never take the doubtful information. Whatever the information you get from a stranger or doubtful person, make sure you authenticate if the information provided is really true. You need to go to the Country’s Government websites and find out the real things and validate the info you read on blogs.

Yes, it is true some countries give 1 year or so work permit but there are many restrictions for that, so you have to read the particular countries immigration laws from that countries website. Here below I posted for you the Government websites of the nations you mention:

See here is the New Zealand and they clearly written about working while studying: http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/study/canistudyinnewzealand/allaboutvisas

Germany: https://www.daad.de/deutschland/in-deutschland/arbeit/en/9148-earning-money/

Canada: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?q=495&t=15

Ireland: http://www.icosirl.ie/eng/student_information/working_in_ireland

http://www.inis.gov.ie/en/INIS/Pages/WP11000076

IMPORTANT: You will not be able to finance yourself entirely by working part-time while studying! And it is not easy finding a part-time job in all towns.

Try for higher studies in the following nations:

Read our previous post on this topic about my experiences shared on H1B page12/12/2013.

DREAM -> Study in Abroad or Work in Abroad

HIGHEST AMBITION FOR ANY INDIAN: I know it may not be possible for all. At least those who want India to be changed must visit USA. You must see and experience how drastically they changed over decades. They have driven out inequality, poverty & discrimination from the face of their nation. I think every Indian should have the experience of working abroad for a while to see the progress that Western nations have made(better living, best work culture, better minds and better hears). I do hope that one day you are able to come back home, and I also hope that you are able to contribute something to the society that gave you birth. I think that is the highest ambition for any Indian.

To full fill my America Dream, I have tried the below and sharing it here for Young Indians. I have started pursing persistently with patience and passion from 1995-96 till 2008 and hence am sharing my ideas to those young Indians who wish to see the CHANGE in USA to bring CHANGE IN INDIA. Remember, you do not need to leave India for money and to buy apartments as many misinterpret America means only Dollars or Money. Either you can get it there in India or you can also visit Kuwait, where 1 Kuwaiti Dinar (KWD) = 219 Indian Rupee (INR) and one 1 US Dollar equals 61.85 Indian Rupee(today 12/12/2013).

You must see progress in America, progress means social justice, equal rights, equal standards of living standards unlike in India, caste/creed/gender/region/religion discriminations & corruption in all walks of life. THINK BEYOND MONEY & RELIGION i.e. Share & Care with Love(Humanity).

OPTION 1: Study Abroad if you can afford it if not or F1 refusals

HAVE A DREAM, DO NOT RELAX UNTIL REACH YOUR DREAMS.

 Set the Goal, set the Path, forget the Goal and follow the path

 Chose the path from this: Visas for Indian Students: Country-by-Country Guides

http://www.topuniversities.com/student-info/studying-abroad/visas-indian-students-country-country-guides

Alternative Options(What if US Visa is refused/rejected): Also try for Singapore and European nations

 I have shared my Singapore visit in 2000 year experiences in BuildCareer page.

 You can go to Germany to do MS free in Germany and can work there and apply for H1B to USA for temporary work.

 From Australia E3 Visa to work in USA

 From Canada E2 Visa to Work in USA

 Apply for Immigration to Canada/Australia/New Zealand and visit USA to see the progress or Change that America Made.

OPTION2. Apply for jobs or seriously try for campus placements (BTEC Students) to get into top 10 H1B USA/MNC/Indian companies to work at on sites to see the progress that WEST MADE.

Top 10 H-1B Employers who files H1Bs

  1. Wipro Limited

  2. iGate technologies Inc

  3. Syntel Consulting Inc

  4. Syntel Inc

  5. Infosys Limited

  6. Cognizant technologies Solutions US Corporation

  7. PriceWaterhouse Coopers LLP

  8. Tata Consultancy Services Ltd

  9. Deloitte Consulting LLP

  10. Mphasis Corporation

 Etc.

 OPTION 3. If Option-1 & Option-2 failed, Finally try this Option -3-> Filing H1B through Indian/US Consulting in USA without paying application cost($5400) to middle men in India”.
