I have a Malaysia passport and have graduated last month with a Economics and a finance bachelors degree from New Zealand. I wanted to do the Hospitality degree but heard and researched that Las Vegas and Cornell University has the best. I just got rejected my student Visa for Las Vegas and this past year has been denied my visa to visit las vegas. what can I do?
State/Country relating to question: Nevada
visitor visa to visit campus, rejected twice.
Accepted to College of Southern Nevada for Hospitality. Wanted to go to UNLV but the university i New Zealand did not send transcript on time(forgot) so I was advised to go to CSN and all credits are transferable to UNLV in January.
Went to US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur today and got rejected immediately because of flight risk.
Hello. What was the reason for the denial? Did Cornell help you with the process?
Did not apply at cornell only in vegas. very short interview the VOfficer said how do I know you are not coming back. rejected.
Ok. That is normal. Everyone is deemed to be an intending immigrant until they can prove otherwise. It's like being guilty until you can prove you are innocent and this is normal and legal when it comes to A visa. So you can apply again whenever you want, but what you need to do this time is have the school that you want to go to accept you and help you with the process and then you will have to show that you have strong ties to your country that you would go back. Evidence of that would be owning a home in Malaysia, leaving behind close family, maybe having a job waiting for you when you go back, etc. The more you have, the better it is. And if you want a better chance, you can look at http://www.ailalawyer.com/ to find an attorney. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge. If there is a delay in getting back to you it is either because I am answering other questions or I had to log off, but I will be back with you as soon as possible. It is VERY important that if you are not satisfied, please ask additional questions. My goal is to provide you with top-notch service. And please don't forget to rate me, but please rate me on my service to you, not the state of the law because I have no control over that. Also, a bonus is always appreciated.

should he go back this week? He has been rejected twice for a visitor visa in the last 9 months. He went to the interview today with the packet from the school. His dad is wealthy and is willing to back him up to someday owning a small hotel or his dad wants him to take over the business because he is the only one that speaks good english. He is one of 2 son's. His dad is a produce wholesaler. It seems like the VO is irritated with him for trying so many times. Shall he try and go back this week? School starts on the 27th of August. What can the school do?
I wouldn't go back so quickly. They won't believe enough has changed plus he may need more time to prepare. He may need to apply for the winter semester. That would give him the best chance.
Have you ever heard of people trying twice for visitor visa and being rejected and applying twice for an i20? How long should he wait to apply again for to apply to go to school in January? His dad is wealthy and wants him home to eventually take over the business. He buys all his onions from Canada and would really help if Tom was there because of his english. His brother cannot manage nor speak english. No sisters.
It is possible, yes. The most important thing is to prove non-immigrant intent. The more proof he has, the better it is. And the longer he waits to apply again, the better it is.
