Refused Entry to the USA – Case Study
Client’s Issue or Problem
Our Client approached our office due to problems he has faced travelling to America and was denied entry to the US a number of times. Although our Client does not he does not have a criminal record, he had been loosely acquainted through business dealings with individuals from a known criminal enterprise (though he did not do anything illegal.)
These dealings occurred years and years before the Client contacted us. The Client wanted the additional scrutiny and denials to end.
Our Solution (Type of Visa/Action Recommended)
We initially gathered documents from our Client and wrote up our submissions and opinions to be sent to a port of entry Chief in order to determine whether in fact our Client is admissible to the US. We were told that he was, however despite this, our Client was still nervous about travelling on his own to the US given his history.
We set up a border representation and had one of our attorneys meet with the Client at a Port-of-Entry for a “test run.” Although our Client was scrutinized at the outset, he was told that he was able to travel and was not inadmissible. The attorney spoke to the supervisor further to see whether these notations can be made in order to reduce the chance of high scrutiny at every entry.
How Niren & Associates Helped
The Client has since traveled numerous times to the US and has not been subjected to secondary inspection since then.
