I-601 Waiver - Obtaining a New Immigrant Visa Interview after I-601 Waiver Denial
Rescheduling An Immigrant Visa Interview
After denial of an I-601 waiver by the USCIS overseas office, the applicant or his or her attorney may contact the immigrant visa section at the U.S. Consulate via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, to request a new immigrant visa appointment. This request cannot be made through the InfoPass system.
After the request, an applicant will be placed in line at that time. The applicant’s new place in line will not relate back to the any prior dates. The applicant can typically expect a ten (10) to twelve (12) month wait for a new immigration visa appointment and all filing fees, application forms, and medical exams and fees must be resubmitted.
Resetting The I-601 Interview
After the reset immigrant visa interview, the applicant may set up a I-601 Waiver interview and supply the required documentation.
Immigrant Visa and I-601 Interviews While Appealing I-601 Denial
The request for a new immigrant visa appointment (not waiver appointment) can be made even while a Motion to Reopen or Reconsider filed with the USCIS overseas office, as well as while an I-601 waiver denial appeal are pending with the AAU.
