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.

      Hello Sherry. Yes we can help you obtain a F1 study visa. A study visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your studies are completed. Do you already have a letter of acceptance from a US educational institution? If you do, I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you.

      Hello Sherry. You should not have any problem provided that you are still in good standing with your 10 year multiple entry visa, and you have proof that you exited the country the first time.

      Hello Sherry. Your 6 month visitor visa is now expired and you will not be permitted to use for re-entry in June. You will need to apply for another visitor visa. If you need help with your application to make sure that you are not making any mistakes or ommisions that would cause an uneccessary delay, and so that you will have a legal team taking care of all the matters that may arise, then please contact us to book a consultation with one of our immigration professionals.
