Mistakes to Avoid When Applying for a Visa

If you are applying for a U.S. visa, or considering it, it might seem like an intimidating process and, unfamiliarity with the law might lead to some preventable mistakes along the way, causing lengthy delays, unnecessary expenses, and even a denial of your visa petition. At the Kapoor Law Firm, our immigration attorneys in Nassau County are dedicated to assisting individuals throughout the immigration process.

Here is what you need to know to avoid as you embark on obtaining your U.S. visa:

  • Do not apply without confirming eligibility: There are different types of U.S. visas, all of which have their own specific eligibility requirements. You risk a petition denial when you make the mistake of applying for a visa without checking on the eligibility requirements for your situation, resulting in wasted application fees and time.
  • Remember to send in all of the necessary supporting documentation: Forgetting or simply failing to complete or submit all the necessary documents can also lead to petition delays or denials.
  • Never lie or omit important information on your visa petition: All of the information you provide on your visa application must be accurate and true. Lying or purposely omitting information will not only lead to a denial of your visa, but possibly criminal fraud charges as well.
  • Do not wait too long to prepare your visa petition: Some individuals might need to secure immigration status change by a particular deadline. If you are starting a job, have an event to attend, or another situation where time is of the essence, waiting until the last minute is a mistake you do not want to make.
  • Do not go through this process without retaining an experienced lawyer to help navigate you through it: Having an immigration lawyer at your side. He or she will help you avoid any mistakes and ensure you are able to overcome any challenges if you are delayed or denied.
