Resolving Immigration Problems
In An Honest & Responsible Manner

California immigration issues: Why might a visa be denied?

A number of issues affect those wishing to immigrate to California or any other state in the country. Some may affect those who are wishing to come for the first time, while others may affect those whose current papers are about to expire. Today, we’d like to cover one specific immigration issue — visa denials.

Immigrants looking to obtain visas in order to enter or remain in the country face a number of hurdles before applications are approved or denied. While the vast majority of visas are approved, there are some that are denied based on certain eligibility standards. Some of these standards include:

  • Meeting all visa category requirements
  • Past criminal convictions
  • Reported drug activity
  • Supplying fraudulent information

If a visa is denied, a reason for the denial will be provided. Some reasons may be easily overcome, while others are considered permanent. For those reasons that are considered non-permanent, a waiver of ineligibility may be applied for. If that waiver is approved, the visa may be granted. If the waiver is denied, it is still possible to appeal the decision and/or reapply for a visa again in the future.

While applying for a visa may seem like a pretty straightforward process, there are actually a number of issues that may present themselves. As with all immigration issues, the rules and regulations governing the visa-approval process can be somewhat confusing. A California immigration attorney can help, by ensuring that all necessary documents are in order and that the proper visa category is applied for. If a visa is denied, further assistance to appeal the decision is also available.
