My sister was recently denied a visa extension and taken off the Visa Waiver Program, she was trying to get her visitor visa extended so that she could attend my graduation. She was denied and taken off the program - apparently because she didn't have enough ties to New Zealand - even though we as a family own land in New Zealand (it's part of a family trust fund)
We are dual nationality New Zealand-British, but have spent most of our lives in NZ and that's where our family Farm and Vineyard is.
She is 26 years old, she attended three years at the same college I am at here in the states and then went to live and work in London - she came back to visit me on an ESTA visa and for a short holiday whilst on her way back to NZ for a wedding and decided to try to get an extension while she was there - she was told they were removing her from the Visa Waiver program and that she would no longer be able to apply for a ESTA visa. I'm not sure if she has an official letter but can ask.
Can she get back on the Visa Waiver program? and if so how and how long does she have to wait before she can apply?
