US visa denied second time under section 214(b)
Section 214(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act says that applicants for non-immigrant visas must show evidence that they will not immigrate.
Some causes for refusal include
- limited ties to home country (young, unmarried, unemployed, rural, no property)
- students lacking adult-like ties to home country
- match profile of people who previously entered on a visit-visa and stayed.
- pattern of long visits suggest intent to live in USA
and many others
Now I am clueless of what to do.
I think you either need to pay for expensive professional help (but be careful not to get tricked by fraudsters claiming they can help) or give up on this one-time opportunity, either look for opportunities elsewhere or hope that new opportunities arise when you have taken time to establish strong ties to your home country.
Typical guidance from a US embassy is
Under Section 214(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), applicants are presumed to be intending immigrants unless they credibly demonstrate, to the consular officer’s satisfaction, that their economic, family, and social ties outside the United States are strong enough that they will depart at the end of their authorized stay and that their intended activities in the United States will be consistent with the visa status.
If your application for a visa has been refused under Section 214(b) INA, there is no appeal process. While you are not prohibited from reapplying for a visa, unless you can show credible, new, and compelling ties outside the United States, and that your intended activities in the United States are consistent with the visa class, a different outcome is unlikely.
Note the need for credible, new and compelling reasons.
