Hello Dear all residency applicants,

Hope everybody is doing well with the residency interview process. I am also a residency applicant for this year and have received 12 Interviews so far. I am done with all the USMLE steps and have been to US 2 times in past 1st time on B1/B2 visa for taking USMLE Exams and 2nd time on doing 1 year of research on J1 research scholar visa. I came back to my home country in September 2016 after applying in the residency match and applied for visit visa B1/B2 two times from my home country but unfortunately, it was rejected both the times. The first time it was rejected when I applied for the visa in September 2016 for doing clinical observership and attending the IVS although I did not have any interviews at that time and I told the visa officer that I am expecting the interviews from October onwards. 2nd time I reapplied for the visa in October 2016 on the basis of 12 IVS but again it was rejected. I need some guidelines regarding this issue and will appreciate if somebody has been through this situation in past and can guide me then it will be very helpful to me.

Thanks.

Similar situation

Hey Amresh. I have a similar situation. I was rejected twice along the same timeline! I didn't have interviews in september and then i applied in early Nov while having 3 interviews and was rejected on 214(b). The second time they didn't see my interview invites, neither was i asked about how long i will be staying, it is unfortunate.

I have never overstayed and I have previously always had the 5 years multiple visa. What happened about your situation. Did you get the visa the 3rd time around?? Please let me know. Hoping we both find a way out of this sad situation. GL!

Its shocking to see such barriers at the end of such a long and tedious process. I'm sure they gave no reasons why they rejected but hoping speculation can bring some causes into light perhaps
