Visa application denials cannot be appealed. In some cases the denial of petitions, waivers or other supplemental things can be appealed. In visa cases, all that remains is to re-apply or seek consular review of the denial, which is completely discretionary and usually hopeless.

What appellate options depend upon what type of visa you were applying for and where the application occurred. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for case specific advice.
