What if I am denied a visa?
If you are denied a visa and you are not able to arrive at A&M-Commerce by your program start date on line 5 of your I-20 then you will need to defer your admission. If a visa is denied, the consular officer should give the applicant the reason(s) for the denial in writing. The denial letter will specify which section of the law was applied to your case.
If a specific document is lacking the consulate officer will give written notice to the applicant explaining what documents are needed. This is a called a 221(g) letter. You should collect the missing documents and arrange to deliver them to the consular officer. You may need to return for a follow-up interview.
If you are denied under any section of the law other than 221(g), for example 214(b) or 212(a), you will have to reapply at a later date. If you are denied under 214(b) we do not recommend reapplying unless your personal circumstances, that prove your non-immigrant intent, change significantly or you feel you did not present all the information the officer would have needed to approve your visa.
