Getting a visa reinstated – Each year, thousands of visas are issued to people seeking temporary travel to the United States. All temporary visas to the U.S. are issued on the condition that the visa holder abide by its terms. This usually means that the visa holder may not demonstrate an “immigrant intent,” or engage in activities that are not permitted by the visa, such as accepting employment.
Sometimes, the U.S. consulate obtains information about the visa holder which raises suspicion about them abiding by the terms of their visa. When a consular officer has reasons to be suspicious of a potential reason for a visa holder’s inadmissibility or ineligibility, they may revoke a visa. In one of our previous entries on visa revocation, we discussed some of the common reasons for a why a visa would be revoked and how to find out if your visa has been revoked.
So How Do I Get My Visa Reinstated?
Oftentimes, the answer to this question is simple. Reapply for the same type of visa and when doing so, be sure to include more evidence of why you qualify for the visa and how you have significant home ties to your country.
What if I Don’t Want to Reapply in Order to Get My Visa Reinstated?
In many visa revocation cases, the visa holder has no idea of why their visa was revoked in the first place and they do not want to reapply for another visa due to the time constraints and expenses involved. When a visa is revoked and the revocation may have happened unjustly, the visa holder has limited options.
