Approved After Misrepresentation On Visa Application!

January 14, 2022

Client applied for a Visitor visa at the U.S. Embassy in Ghana. A travel agency prepared her visa application.

The agency provided false information on the visa application stating that Client was married and that she had a child.  However, Client was unmarried, and she did not have any children. 

Client was unaware of the false information on her application. It was not until her embassy interview that she learned about this. 

The interview did not go well. Her case was placed in administrative review.

The embassy called her in for a second interview. She was very nervous. She confessed the truth to the officer. Her application was then refused for misrepresentation

She later traveled to London to continue her education. When her studies were completed, she was accepted into a PhD program here in the U.S. She now needed an F1 Student Visa

She met with us in August 2021 because of the misrepresentation on her record. 

Our law office requested records from the Department of State to investigate the matter.

We knew that Client needed a strong Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver.

We also prepared Client for her next visa interview.

In November 2021, the Client had a Student Visa interview at the U.S. Embassy in London. She presented our Waiver to the consular officer.

The officer told her "YOUR LAWYER REALLY WENT ALL OUT!"  He approved our Waiver!  London is a very tough embassy to grant a waiver approval. 

The approval was then sent to the State Department in Washington D.C. for a secondary review process before the decision could become final. This process can take up to 6 months. However, it only took two weeks in this case!

Client is now in the U.S. working on her PhD!
