Interesting comment/question about US Student F-1 Visa, surprisingly this question was posted on the article – F1 Visa Canceled Due to Fake Bank Statements

I have a unique case : A friend of mine, was denied f1 visa twice in 2006 under 214 (b). Fortunately, that passport has expired now (the passport in which there are two “application received” stamps.

Now, he has a new passport, and is planning to go for visa next month. Can he say that he was never denied a visa in the DS forms? As the visa denial was in old passport, you think there is no chance of VO knowing?

Also from 2007, they have stopped using “application received” stamp. They are entering denial and approval data into their CCD (Consular Consolidated Database) So is it possible that before 2007 they dint have database and that is why they used stamps.  Please let me know.

    Even if you change passport, they can come to know. They have retina scan and fingerprint record. Change your fingers and retina too when you don't writ DENIED. US embassy keeps records for at least 2 years. May be they can keep for more time but don't use lie because when you say one lie then you have to say 100 lies to make your first lie a truth

    Please always speak out the truth. In denied Visa column write yes DENIED. I did the same mistake once — I was asked to re-appear anyday after 3 days. I did so after 2 years, and presuming that since my passport is stamped for my appearance and denial stamp is not there I wrote that Visa NOT denied. It was taken as false information though it was simply a misunderstanding of facts. It took great efforts to satisfy them and get my VISA. Please submit all facts correctly — I repeat whether you get a VISA or not — be honest. This is what got me the VISA and I am not going into details how I got it BUT I cannot stress more — BE AS HONEST AS POSSIBLE or YOU MAY REGRET IT FOR EVER.

      Also to add

      Question: Do you think US Consulate will not have information about previous Visa interview?

      Answer: They have all the records for sure. I do not want to give examples, but, I have reasons to believe that they DO have all the information.
