If I get denied a US fiance visa, what are my options?

Going for a US embassy interview can be stressful.  It can be a really bad day if your visa is not approved, but do not lose hope!  You still have options.

Here are the 2 things you can do to overcome:

Refile. Some fiances only get an request for evidence (RFE).  In this case, refiling is not necessary.  All they have to do is provide the evidence that they government agency asked for.  But in more extreme cases, the visa is denied.  If your first fiance visa application did not get approved, refile your application! Will you get denied if you refile? That is really up to you and your situation.  If you are denied, the US Embassy will sometimes explain why you were denied and you can make sure you fix that issue the next time you refile.  Preparation is the key! For sure you have learned your lesson on what has gone wrong in your first fiance visa process. This time do more research, coordinate with your fiance and have a teamwork! Nothing beats teamwork. WIth the right papers submitted to the USCIS, the right papers submitted to the US embassy interview and a practice for the interview questions, you have a good chance to make it to the USA.

CR1 spousal visa petiition. If you feel that the option above will not work for you then try cr1 visa or k3 visa. If your case is more complicated (ex: if the applicant has applied for multiple visa before but got denied). You can proceed to getting married and apply for a new visa called CR1 spousal visa (conditional resident visa). This is another type of visa that applicants use to prove to the consular officer that the relationship is real and surpass the doubt of the petition.
