CBP will deny future ESTA applications if they receive a chargeback for any previous ESTA application. I can think of two obvious ways this can happen: The first is that you disputed the charge on your card yourself. Though you say you did not do this. The second is that you applied for a previous ESTA through a third party web site, that third party applied ...

The general advice we have is that unless there was a serious error in the reading of your file you should not apply again. Not having minor documents included in your portfolio (that may be referred to by other documents) is not a serious error or omission. You don’t give the specific reason code your visa was denied but it was most probably the generic “...

This stamp means that you applied for a visa. Typically you would only see this stamp if you asked for your passport to be returned while the consulate processed your application. They would then ask you to return the passport to affix the visa after approval. If your visa was approved, then it would be placed on the same page and would completely cover ...

Immigration authorities are legally able to refuse visas for almost any reason. If you think there's an error here then usually your only recourse is to apply again, or perhaps apply for a judicial review (if that's appropriate for the jurisdiction to which you're applying). You've tried the first route, and the second is prohibitively expensive with no ...

Your SAR application will not be accepted until UKVI receive your evidence of identity documents, and it will be automatically rejected if you do not send them within 15 days of making your application. Once your identity has been verified, you should receive a response within 30 days. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/requests-for-personal-data-...

You should submit your application, with as many details of the denial as you remember. You are not the first person who has mislaid, never got or plainly thrown away the denial letter. It is quite a normal thing even. As long as you are open about the fact you got a denial, and tell when (as good as you can) so they can check back if they feel the need. ...

It was a mistake to not include the evidence of land ownership. A typo isn't likely to matter much or at all, but it does show evidence of intention to leave Australia. This should be included. A child in college is not necessarily a sufficient family tie to show intention to leave, but a minor child would be. Since that child would have been traveling to ...

Yes, this will affect you negatively, because from Canada's perspective it is a refusal. It's a very unfortunate refusal, because most likely you had been approved for the visa and Canada was going to stamp it in your passport. (If it was possible to do, you should have submitted your passport for visa stamping, even though you could not go on that specific ...

If you think this is a mix-up on the CPB side, you can try to apply again: all you risk is the processing fee of $4 per application (so $8 total for you and your partner), and if there were no charge-backs for your previous applications, the new application could get through. I wouldn't hold my breath though: if there was a problem with your credit card, or ...

You didn't qualify for the visa because the consular officer decided that you did not overcome the required presumption under U.S. law that every visitor visa applicant is an intending immigrant until they demonstrate otherwise. Applicants for visitor visas must overcome this presumption by demonstrating: • That the purpose of their trip is to enter the ...

I don't know anything about how the US State Department carries out interviews. It would be a good idea to have your marriage certificate, issued by the agency in the place where the marriage took place, that issues such certificates. If it isn't in English, I would obtain a translation into English. Check the State Department website to see if you can find ...

This is virtually impossible without bank statements or some other reliable and verifiable documentation to show a) the source of your father’s support for you; and b) his ability to fulfil his commitment. See Should I submit bank statements when applying for a UK Visa? What do they say about me?

Telling the truth is the way to get more probabilities to get the visa. I interpret this in a wide sense, so also not hiding important informations. Why are you travelling in USA? In specific locations? Alone? Officers checks such facts and get an idea of what you will do, and the risk. There is no wrong way to answer them, but you officers should be ...

If you can’t remember the exact date and/or don’t have any paperwork relating to the rejection, you should enter your best ‘guesstimate’ and provide an explanation in your covering letter. Having said that, if time permits, I would email your local Australian Embassy https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/contact-us/offices-and-locations to ask how to ...

The UK does not require flight / hotel bookings when considering Visitor visa applications - see section 4 https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/visitor-visa-guide-to-supporting-documents/guide-to-supporting-documents-visiting-the-uk IMHO therefore the travel agent’s mistake should not be a reason for rejection, although it does indicate that they don’...

When you are asked "have you ever been refused a visa", you say yes and explain what happened back then. You just didn't meet the requirements nine or ten years ago, but that shouldn't cause any problems as long as your situation has changed and you meet the requirements today. If you had been refused a visa two weeks ago, that might be a problem. If you ...

If you are certain that you can satisfy all the refusal reasons from the first application, then yes, IMHO re-applying is worth it although there’s no guarantee of success and you will of course need to declare the refusal in any subsequent application. If you’ve not done so already, it might help to read this What details should a good cover letter ...

According to the Information Commissioners Office, Subject Access Requests are subject to a 40 calendar day response time limit. What is the time limit for responding? In most cases you must respond to a subject access request promptly and in any event within 40 calendar days of receiving it https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisations/documents/...

Your first step would probably be to find out what the SIS says about you. Maybe someone else used your identity, or there is a mismatch. According to the European Commission's website: What is the procedure for requesting access to personal data in the SIS? If you believe your personal information has been misused, needs to be corrected or deleted, ...

Yes, you can. Whether you should depends on the reason(s) for the refusal and whether you can address it in your next application. Even if your next application is approved, it does not guarantee that your subsequent family applications will be, in particular if having family ties at home while you are in the UK is a factor in the approval. If you post a ...

Tell them. Instead of sending the visa refusal with your application, write a note saying: you're perfectly aware it should've been included you don't have it you asked for a copy they claim not to have it either They won't expect you to work miracles, they expect you to be honest. So be honest. Provide them with the details you have (like you have posted ...
