My non-immigrant work permit was approved by change of status in the US. I went to the foreign consulate to get the stamp placed in my passport and was denied. I made a huge mistake, I mistakenly took my original job offer with me, and not the letter saying i was currently employed. I had the softcopy of the letter from my boss on my computer, but no signature, so I copied his signature from a scan of another document. I talked to my boss, and he was cool about it, but he said the consulate already called him. He told them I was employed, but he sounded like the letter was a surprise and he wasnt sure he handled it well.
1. Could that cause me to be barred from ever getting a visa again?
2. Would it come up on my immigrant file in the consulates system during future visa applications?
Yes, there is a permanent bar for fraud. After a while, you may qualify for a waiver.
