If you are thinking of applying for a visa for any of the countries that require it, such as the United States or the United Kingdom , take into account certain details that can help you when generating the process so that you have the certainty that you will be able to obtain it without further ado drawbacks.
The official consular of any State, as in the case of the United States, are authorized to grant immigrant visas only to those who qualify according to the law .
In this sense, a visa can be rejected for different reasons . For example, if you have a criminal record, lied in the interview , lived illegally in the country you want to enter, or your financial documents are not sufficient to support solvency , your application may be rejected.
Despite what some people may tell you, luck has nothing to do with the approval or rejection of a visa. Consular officers make their decisions strictly based on the laws , regulations, and policies of the Department of State. If you appear at the Resident Visa Unit fully prepared and follow the instructions of the consular officer, you will have a better chance of obtaining your residency visa.
Other aspects to consider
On the other hand, some visa refusals may be reconsidered with additional evidence or require a special permit (‘ waiver ‘). Likewise, there are other visa rejections that are permanent as if it is proven that that person was involved in trafficking in illicit substances.
Now, if you already have a tourist visa , keep in mind that too many visits for several months or requests for a visa extension can lead to suspicions on the part of the consular authorities or the immigration agent at a border post or airport that consider that you are working illegally in the country or that the person resides and does not go as a tourist .
