214b & Administrative Processing
  • 214b Refusal

    214b Refusal

    • If your visa application was refused with a "214 (b)" notation, it is a final refusal for this application. Section 214(b)* denials are not permanent. If you have new information or if your overall circumstances have changed significantly, you may reapply.  We recommend waiting six months to reapply. Applicants who provide identical information in a second interview rarely get a different result.

    • If your visa application was refused with a "221 (g)" notation for further administrative processing, please read the instructions on the handout you were given at the conclusion of your interview.
