I'm from the UK and I'm 27 years of age. My girlfriend lives in Chicago in the USA. I've been with her for 3 years I have went to see her last year July 2018, staying for 3 months and entering on an ESTA.
Then, I tried going back in December on the ESTA, and was refused entry at the border, sent home, and my ESTA was cancelled.
Now, I need a visa to go see her. I'm worried because I'm scared I might get denied. I don't work in the UK, haven't for few weeks; I do live in a flat but I only just moved in the beginning of February.
I don't know if I should apply for a visa or is it to soon and should I wait a month or two because I only just got a flat? What should I do?
Added from what had been posted as an answer:
I just received that's I understand why I got sent back and that's it and I sighed it I sighed it cause they said if I didn't I could get banned from the USA all together they said we sending you back so you can never come back on an ESTA again; you will need a visa if you want to come to the USA and I only stayed 89 days last time I was there ....
I lost my job cause it was agency work
Also I have could start new job for a agency Monday so I was thinking do two months working and that will be 3 months I been in my flat then apply for the visa would that be a good idea
Also my girlfriend has a very good job and she said she could help pay for it; she earns 65 or 70k a year.
And I was thinking going for 2 to 3 weeks ...
