Yesterday I had my visa interview and I got rejected ( for BBA)
Reason given 214 (b) but let me tell you this can’t be true because believe it or not I do not have a single family member living in USA or even anywhere outside my home country.
Plus, We have a family business that earns 4.5 million per annum and I also have proper documents to proof it along with the bank-statement. The VO didn’t even look at those documents she just took out my I-20, Fee Recipt, admission letter and asked me few questions.
Here is my student F1 interview experience
Me: Hi mam How are you doing?
VO: So how long have you been working and for whom?
Me: I have been working for 3 years along with my brother who runs our family business of construction materials.
VO: what is your highest degree?
Me: Intermediate (She didn’t look at my transcripts though I have good grades)
VO: what Year did you graduate from High School?
VO: what made you continue your education now?
Me: We are looking to expand our business and being an intermediate I find myself limited in my skills and knowledge so I decided once I pursue my BBA I will have better skills and knowledge to look after it with my brother
VO: (Again with a twisted question I believe) What were you doing from 2007 to 2009?
Me: Mam in 2007 I completed my intermediate then I have been working since 2008 till now.
VO: (Signs the letter and says) Sorry you are not eligible to travel to USA right now.
Me: THank You Mam.
The letter stated I am denied under section 214 (B). But my all family members are here in my home country and I have a big business going on here then why this reason? She didn’t even look at those letters from my brother?
Should I reapply? I am not sure because nothing has changed in my case..but I think I wasn’t given a fair chance and I can say in 2nd interview that The reason said I do not have social and economic ties, but i think I wasn’t given fair chance to proof it because all my family members are here in pakistan and we also have a family business running here for more than 20 years…
