I recently applied for my US Non-Immigrant visa and got turned down. I questioned myself and others as to what I did not demonstrated strong 'ties' to my country (Trinidad and Tobago). I read the 'frequently asked questions' list that was served by the consular to me and it still did not make sense to me as to why I was turned down.
I am employed full time to a Government Organisation, in which I have a decent salary, plus travelling. Also, I am employed at the Univesity of the West Indies as a Part-Time Tutor. I am aslo Pursuing a Masters in Science Degree in Sociology at the Univesity of the West Indies. In order to pursue my tertiary studies in Trinidad and Tobago I have access to Government Assistance in Tertiary Education Programme(G.A.T.E.). By accessing this Programme I am obligated to work in Trinidad and Tobago for the five (5) years for the least, in order to repay the Government.
I am also engaged to be married on June 2011. We have already paid 50% downpayment on the Hall rental (In which I have the reciept).
I applied for vacation during the christmas break in order to visit my uncle and aunt in New Jersey. Honestly, I want to experience snow in December and I wanted to shop for my wedding dress and favors. I have travelled to several Caribbean countries and I thought I would be able to travel to the US since I have 'ties' in Trinidad and Tobago.
Addtionally, I currently live with my mother, where I am the main breadwinner of the household.
I tried to show the consular that I have several 'ties' in Trinidad and Tobago and I do not intend on Migrating to the US. However, they stated that they did not want to see any of my documents, then went on to tell me that I do not have enough 'ties' and I do not qualify for a US non-Immigrant visa.
I intend to re-apply for my non-immagrant visa in the future. I want to know what were the reasons I was turned down initially? What is wrong with the 'ties' I have? Would I be turned down again if I still have the same 'ties'?
