Visa Revocation & Cancellations
Representation for Those Facing Cancelled Visas
A U.S. visa can be or revoked or cancelled for a myriad of reasons. Visas may be revoked by a U.S. Department of State (DOS) consular officer at a U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate. A visa may also be cancelled by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officer, such as by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agent at a U.S. airport or other U.S. Port of Entry, or by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officer following adjustment of status.
The most common grounds for visa revocation or cancellation include:
- Visa was fraudulently-issued or was used in a fraudulent manner
- Suspected immigrant intent
- Suspected unauthorized employment
- Suspected status violation
- No longer qualify for the visa (e.g., due to criminal activity)
- Prudential revocation by issuing U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate following an arrest in the United States for DUI or other crimes
- Cancellation of nonimmigrant visa following adjustment of status
The law allows eligible persons to seek a visa reinstatement following revocation. Others may apply for a new visa. In many cases, a waiver of inadmissibility must be applied for in conjunction with the reinstatement petition or new visa application.
