I suggest you research the availability of Australian visas for the purpose of work.

The issue with the first application was that they doubted you would actually leave at the end of the trip. If you were to re-apply you need to provide as much solid evidence as possible to assure their worries you will not stay in the country after your visit. You said you mentioned your job last time, but you need to be very clear about it, show your ...

Because the programme doesn't require presence at campus at any point, you don't need an F-1 visa, but can enter on a B visa (or visa-free if a VWP national) However, it is highly likely CBP (border control) officers won't get this nuance, so I highly recommend you to: Get a signed/stamped letter from the school explaining your exact situation, ...

No, your purposes do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). The ESTA is simply the approval for the VWP. The VWP only allows you to enter for purposes that would otherwise be allowed under a B1/B2 visa (business/tourism), see https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/tourism-visit/visa-waiver-program.html. Specifically for business, valid ...

no. I wanted to work in a cafe for free accommodation, and was told that it was illegal and I was denied entry at the airport and deported. My experience suggests that legally it isn't.

You will be eligible to apply for a visa, but you must still meet all the requirements to obtain one. For any nonimmigrant visa, such as the B-2 Visitor visa that would be appropriate in this case, one of those requirements is demonstrating nonimmigrant intent, and another is willingness to follow the immigration and criminal laws of the United States while ...

US law regulating the issuance or refusal of visa applications requires the officer examining the application to presume that the applicant has immigrant intent. A successful visa application must disprove this presumption. Proving that something (here, an overstay) will not happen in the future is logically impossible, and in the real world very difficult. ...

You would need to show that your life circumstances have changed such that there is no probability of you overstaying your visa in the US seeking employment falling back onto public services (food stamps, medicaid, medi-Cal, public housing etc.) committing crimes or terror here (that's an easy one) The way to show that is a well-established life in a ...

What does "the processing of your application has not been straightforward" mean? This means that they have had problems to assess if your application should be approved or not. Most likely because you have previously been refused a visa and therefore they wanted to do extra checks on you. How long will this take? I have an urgent flight to another ...

Will they let me? This depends whether you can prove you have a good income and you don't need to work. This also depends on you proving you will stay with your friends and that you have enough funds for your trip. No-one can say yes or no certainly but if you provide the right proof and obeyed your ban you do have a chance. What type of visa do I need? ...

A job seeker visa for Germany cannot be extended. You have 6 months to either find a job or return to your home country, from where you can apply for a new visa but it will be tougher to obtain.

You must apply for an Italian D-Visa (Long term/Residence permit) that allows you to work. A Schengen C-Visa (Short term) only allows 90 days in a 180 period. As part of your Business, state you you must travel periodically back to the US. That should be no problem.

As long as you remain in the Schengen Area the whole time, yes, a single-entry visa will allow you to go to Düsseldorf then Eindhoven then Frankfurt.

You will almost assuredly be denied admittance if you arrive in Australia after your "Entry Expiry Date." If your flight to Australia is so delayed on departure that it will arrive in Australia after the "Extry Expiry Date," the airline will refuse to allow you to even board the flight. A search of Australia.gov.au returns nothing about amending or changing ...

I assume you stay in the Schengen area for your German summer school and your Hungary event. If so, you should explain the Hungary event when applying for your Germany visa. A single entry visa will cover you for this kind of trip. If your trip to Hungary is minor compared to the time you spend in Germany, it might even be acceptable not to mention it on ...

Lost my tourist card. Took bus from Puerto Mares to border. Was told I was in trouble. My Chilean guide was in tears with worry. At the border my passport was scanned and stamped and I went through. No one cares about the card.

Yes, assuming that you will be leaving the Schengen Area in the mean time you should add this information with the event details as part of your itinerary. This combination would be considered a valid reason for the issuing of a double entry visa.

IMHO, if you reapply, another rejection is virtually certain unless you provide evidence to address the previous refusal reasons and prove a compelling reason to return home before your visa expires, for example a job from which you have approved leave of absence for the period of your visit. The fact that you didn’t disclose the true nature of your ...

Cochin airport does not currently have an airside transit facility; everyone who arrives from outside India must clear immigration and customs before going to their next flight.

It’s not what you want to hear but IMHO you have zero chance of getting a UK visa based on your current personal circumstances. You fit the profile of a high risk applicant - young, no ties to your country of residence, existing connections in the UK etc etc. All of that will lead an ECO to conclude that the risk of an illegal overstay is unacceptably high.

TIMATIC always says "Visa required, except...". Since you have a visa, if it's unexpired (it usually lasts 30 days), you can board the plane and re-enter the UK.

Would it be possible to enter Greece with Italy Schengen visa? A Schengen visa is valid for the whole Schengen area. However, you are required to apply to the country which can be considered your primary destination. Or if you stay for an equal amount of time in more than one country, then the country whos border you will cross first. See: https://eeas....

Nope, not a problem. You can re-enter the US anytime until the visa expires. Though irrelevant in your case, if only travelling to Canada/Mexico for max 30 days, you can even return on an expired visa. Once your visa expires, it is only next time you travel abroad (other than to Canada/Mexico for max 30 days) that you need to get a new one. In that case, ...

No, immigration doesn't care. When you take medical services in the US, you are taking them from a doctor or hospital, which is either a private person or business, or a non-profit charity. With rare exception, they are not run by the US government. Whoever they are, they bill you for the medical care, at "retail" (rich foreigner) rates. That varies ...

"Leave" is a noun (and says what that stamp is) The word "leave" exists as a noun, or a thing. Other examples of things are "visa", "waiver", "membership", "citizenship" or "permission".

You've received a multiple entry Standard Visitor Visa from the UK.

You should absolutely definitely read the answer linked in comments by MadHatter. However it is also possible to highlight the specific reasons that the letter gives for rejection. As the second bullet point says, you did not explain where the deposits to your account came from. Transfers from your own bank account would not be a problem, but unless you ...

You can get a visa and there is no problem with that, but there is also no real reason to do so. Your ESTA is fine for travel to the US, and a visa provides no more guarantee of being admitted than the ESTA does. The only current reason to get a visa instead of the ESTA is if you need to stay more than 90 days continuously.

Your sister cannot stay legally in the US more than 90 days with the visa waiver program. Nor can she go to Canada, Mexico or some nearby islands as the time spent there will be included in the 90 days, specifically to address the visa-run problem. Even if she flies to, say, Europe, and returns quickly she risks refusal at the border. If she wants to stay ...

I think all the previous answers have missed the point. I think the confusion comes from the conflicting information in the two entry stamps. The earlier stamp said you have permission to stay for up to 6 months (ie. from 31 Oct 2019 until 30 Apr 2020). Unfortunately, because you left the country on 27 Dec 2019 (for your brief trip to Amsterdam), your ...

No. You do not have to wait. There is no restriction on the length or frequency of visits with an EEA family permit, since it evidences the right of the bearer to enjoy freedom of movement in the United Kingdom. In fact, there is no strict six-month waiting period for a standard visitor visa, either. Consider the case of someone with a standard visitor ...

According to this the annotation in the passport means exactly what it means: your leave to enter (govspeak for permission to cross UK border and stay for specified period) expired on 31.01.2020, contrary to what other answers do imply.
