Visitor visas are non-immigrant visas for individuals who want to enter the United States temporarily for the purposes of business (B-1 visa); tourism, pleasure, or visiting (B-2 visa); or a combination of both (B1/B2 visa).
Although visitor visas are very popular, they are quite hard to obtain. We have many clients who come to our firm for help when they have been denied a visitor visa, sometimes multiple times, and don’t know why.
There are many reasons that a visitor visa can be denied; however, two of the most common are (1) incomplete applications and (2) not showing strong enough ties with your home country.
Showing strong ties to your home country
Showing strong ties to your home country is vital in obtaining a visitor visa. Evidence of “strong ties” can be documented in various ways. Some of the most common pieces of evidence submitted are:
>utility bills (gas, electricity, cable, internet)
>insurance (home, car)
Young adults are sometimes at a disadvantage when it comes to proving strong ties since they most likely have not firmly established themselves within their home country (i.e. purchasing a home or being employed for a considerable time by the same employer).
