I am from the Republic of Georgia.
I have a visa refusal from the US Embassy and I included this information in my Canadian visa application. In my Canadian refusal letter, only two sections were marked.
The first one was personal assets; at the time, my travel was suponsored by my father. Now, a lot of things have changed and I have a house, cars and a big company that trades natural methane/ethane gas to different, smaller organizations. I own 50% share of the company.
The second marked section was travel history. I had never been to China, Iran nor any Arabian countries; I had only included refusal information from the US Embassy; this must be the reason for refusal.
This year, I intend to re-apply for a Canadian tourist visa to vacation in August after visiting two European countries.
How do I overcome these refusal problems?
Lately, I have been to Cuba and some Scandinavian countries. I am planning to visit more European countries since Georgian Citizens are no longer required to have a visa to visit Schengen countries.
