Thanks

Tried to accept your call but the payment failed. I can answer you here instead.

What was the reason his visa was denied? What country is he is? Does he have a good, steady job? Does he own property? Bank account?

They said he doesn't have a permanent job. He's in Monrovia Liberia. And In school

Hello

Unfortunately, that is why he was denied. He does not have sufficient significant ties to Liberia and the US government may believe there is a high risk that he will stay in the US illegally. It is hard to overcome this unless the person has a good job in their country and/or owns properties, has community ties, etc. Even with a big event like his sister's wedding, they can many times we be very difficult when it comes to this. He can try to apply again but again unfortunately the chances are not great. He should take proof that he's coming for your wedding and that you are his sister and you are a US citizen. Tell him to take your and his birth certificate, your wedding invitation and your US passport.

I'm sorry, I wish I had better news. I hope you can understand that I don't make the laws and I can't change them and sometimes there is no perfect answer that we want to hear. I hope you can rate me based on the service and not on good or bad news.

-----------------

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

The stars are very important. If you don't RATE , I receive zero credit for my time with you. Hopefully you can rate me 3 stars or more. 5 stars rating is the best!

He has a temp job and is in school. How will he get my passport and birth certificate

You can email or fax him a copy of your passport picture page and birth certificate and wedding invitation. He should take his own birth certificate as well and proof of the job and school.
