US Dubai Consulate FAQ

HOME > AFTER MY INTERVIEW > Visa Refused

In most cases, visa applications are refused because the applicant was unable to demonstrate a valid purpose of travel, and/or to provide evidence of strong ties (such as economic, family, or social ties) to a residence outside of the United States to which they are compelled to return. The consular officer will inform you, in writing, of the reason for your visa refusal.

Visa decisions are final and not subject to appeal.  You are welcome to reapply for a visa at any time. We recommend, however, that you wait until your overall situation has changed, or until such time as you have new or different information to present.
