Hi. My girlfriend's B1/B2 tourist visa was cancelled last year. Can she re-apply to get a new visa?

Asked about 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

It was cancelled last year due to making a false declaration when she attempted to re-enter the U.S. after making a trip to Tijuana, Mexico. She had been here in Los Angeles, CA for about 2 yrs & had been working here for the last year.

They asked her if she was working in the U.S. At first she responded that she wasn't but then she had to admit that she was when they discovered her work I.D. They cancelled her visa for making a negative declaration and denied her entrance to the U.S. They told her she can reapply for her visa for readmission after a year. She realizes that she committed a wrong-doing in working and is resentful. As for myself, I miss her dearly and ask as if there is any chance that she can reapply for a visa & what are the chances that she will be granted one.

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues. She can reapply but if the application contains the same facts and same evidence it is unlikely she will be successful.
