Dear Members, Please just a clarification. If one does a Dropbox visa renewal application and was called for a 221g interview and the interview was successful and B1/B2 Visa issued. When filling a renewal form when the current visa must have expired, what would be the answer to the question have you ever been denied/refused a US visa before?

Cc: @Justwise, seyewest, omobendel

No... I think you can only be refused a U.S Visa by a Consular/CBP officer unless they sent a refusal mail/document to you.

@seyewest, Justwise, Omobendel,

Was sent a mail to go collect passport after Dropbox submission with an attached letter asking to schedule 221g interview to speak with a VO and the Visa was approved and issued.

I understand from past knowledge that it’s a technical/temporary refusal. There’s been some debate about this too, seems however that once visa is granted after honoring the 221(g) interview, the “refusal” is overridden by the APPROVAL. The refusal subsist if no decision has been finally made during the period you apply for any other visa category (e.g you get it on a B1/B2 visa application and while you are yet to honor that interview you decide to apply for an F1, you in my understanding while filling the visa application form will have to pick YES to that question of previous refusals, this is my understanding). If for instance you didn’t honor the interview within a year, that then is a settled REFUSAL. I however wouldn’t emphatically say YES or NO to your question even though I can almost attempt to make a case for both answers, would rather you asked the VOs on their new thread about this so we don’t leave this to assumption at all

Asking you to come for an interview is not a refusal

Got the below off even one of their own embassies website now, the UK....

“....this decision constitutes a denial of a visa.”

Select Yes to that question to be on the safe side because there are many interpretations to that 221g section of US immigration law.

In some explanations you are advised to answer Yes to that question even after getting the visa

I really do not want to be denied again so I want to make sure I am going to get it right the next time I am going to be applying.Also guys my new passport I will be using to apply was issued in Johannesburg, does that count too and gives me an advantage ?

Make sure you are comfortable in whatever you wear.
If it's skirt suit - be comfortable
It its Jeans and polo top - be comfortable
If it's a dress or gown - be comfortable.

There's a lot of waiting and queuing up (almost no sitting, and standing, it will get hot, so be comfortable. Look smart. Don't over dress. Don't under dress.

The VO may direct question to either of you. But have one person take point.

My two cents

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Larrylrkay(m): 8:50pm On Mar 16
Good morning great people on this thread. This is the first time on featuring here, though, i am on Germany thread. Pls i need some pieces of information ASAP.

On March 26, 2018, i paid for a visa fee which is 64k few days after i was denied a visa alongside 9 other people in my group going for a conference in California,USA. I had to pay for the fee because there was an information then that there would be a review of US visa fee, thinking that the price would increase.

Since then, i have not made use of the visa fee, after almost a year, i have now decided to feel my DS 160 form so as to use the visa fee before 26th of this month which it will expire.

I intend to go for my masters in Germany next month, hence, i will like to pick December as my interview date at the US embassy so that i will have a better chance as regards travel experience.

my Questions:

1.What is the official website of the US embassy so i can fill my DS 160 form?
2.Please what is the current date interview had gotten to?
3.Do i have a better chance this time if i appeared for an interview as a student studying in Germany?
4.I want to register for any available conference which will be my motive of traveling and I will like to fill my form myself using the previous form as template. please what program do you think its good for me. I am an Art student. I read English language and i practice journalism.

Thanks for your response in advance.
