Visa Rejection Query

Got the following mail from Embassy. Can i re-apply for visa without going through lottery system again even after denial ?

We are sorry to inform you that you have been found ineligible for the nonimmigrant visa category for which you applied under Section 221(g) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). A denial under Section 221(g) means that your application was determined to not meet the regulatory requirements of the INA.

Based on the documents you have submitted and the information elicited during your interview with the Consular Officer, U.S. Embassy Singapore will be returning your petition to the Department of Homeland Security’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) for reconsideration.

In accordance with United States immigration law and Department of State visa regulations, the I-129 Petition for a Non-Immigrant Worker filed on your behalf will be returned to USCIS with a memorandum explaining the facts of your case as presented at the time of interview and the consular officer’s rationale for recommending reconsideration.

U.S. Embassy Singapore is no longer handling your case and will be unable to give you any further information as to the status of your petition.


Consular Section



At the moment you can. However, they have sent the petition back to USCIS for reconsideration. If based on review, USCIS revokes the petition, then no future cap-exempt petition can be filed. So you must act on this ASAP.

Thanks for the info saurabh. So whats the besy way to proceed further?

Find a new employer ASAP and ask them to file a cap-exempt petition for you, may be in PP. Once approved, go for stamping through them.

Thanks Saurabh for your inputs. Trying to find a new employer.
