Fraud/ Material Misrepresentation Section 212(a)(6)(c)(i)

Visa Denials Section 212(a) (6) (C) (i) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act applies a serious penalty to proven efforts to defraud or misrepresent material facts to the U.S. Government in matter related to INA.

If your visa application was denied under section 212(a)(6)(C)(i) because you supplied false information or fake documents to the Consular Officer during your visa interview, you are PERMANENTLY ineligible to enter the United States. Please understand that all future visa applications that you file will also be denied, regardless of the intent of your travel to the U.S., your position within the business community/ government service or your age at the time of that future application. Providing false information and/or fake documents during the visa interview is a serious offense and will have a lasting impact on your future ability to conduct business, study or travel on vacation to visit friends and family in the U.S. Please take this into consideration when preparing your visa application.

What is then done?

Challenge the finding: If you believe that there are legitimate grounds for challenging the findings of the officer, an appeal or request for reconsideration is submitted on the point of law and facts to the appropriate supervisor of the officer or to the appropriate administrative or judicial body.
Waivers:  If the finding is accurate, or the challenge to the finding is not upheld, immigrant visa waivers are available. In addition, the granting of an immigrant visa waiver is much more limited: it may be granted to the spouse, son, or daughter of a US citizen or permanent resident for certain ineligibilities if extreme hardship to the interested US person can be proven.

Therefore, it is necessary to understand the consular officer rationale for visa revocation, and when appropriate, challenge the decision without unreasonable delay through expert and professional experienced U.S. Immigration Specialist Lawyer who has been representing such cases regularly in U.S. Embassy in Dhaka or the appropriate administrative or judicial body in U.S. Failure to do so silence is viewed as consent with the decision of Consular Officer.
