Visa denial to the USA

With immigration specialization since 1992, Feod Group are able to assist in obtaining US visa after denial. We have excellent experience and success record in working with difficult immigration or visa applications.

Obtaining a visa to the United States has always been difficult. We strongly recommend you seek the advice of professionals before filing a petition for a visa and registering the date of your interview at the U.S. Consulate.


However, if you already have

Feod Group staff in Ukraine and the United States have a huge positive experience with applications after the denials.

Most non-immigrant visa applicants are denied under Article 214 (b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.  By law, the Consular Officer must begin each interview with the presumption that the applicant is an intending immigrant. It is the burden of the visa applicant, in the ten-minute visa interview, to overcome that presumption. Failure to do so results in a denial.

The Consular Officer assess the “equities and assets” of each visa applicant and, although many are the same for all applicants, these assets and equities differ from applicant to applicant.

Equities and assets are things perceived by the Consular Officer that are sufficient to determine that the applicant has strong enough tiе to Ukraine and will return to Ukraine after the purpose for the visa has been satisfied.

The Feod staff assists each applicant in identifying their individual assets and equities. Then, the staff assists in documenting the assets and equities. Lastly, the staff works with the applicant in “how to present and discuss their assets and equities”.

These exercises, while no guarantee of visa issuance, will greatly reduce the risk of a visa denial and they can be used in overcoming a previous visa denial.

In case of such denial, the company specialists will assist the applicant:


A much more serious reason of denial is 212 (a), such denials are usually permanent. The basis for such a decision is usually submission of false documents or false information to the embassy, or the presence of the embassy grounds to believe that the applicant is going to engage in illegal activities in the United States, or for other reasons, poses a danger to the state.
