Hello, I was rejected once at the US embassy when I had applied for a visa to visit. The passport I had used was lost and I got a new passport. I used this new passport to apply for UK visa but I got refused in UK too.
The passport I have now has a stamp of UK visa refusal. If I apply for a visa with this passport, will I be given a visa?
A refusal stamp in your passport may affect your visa approval chance. But visa officers generally review your applications independent from previous issues. You said you were once rejected in US Embassy, what was the reason of your rejection then? And how long has it been since you were rejected for British visa? Youíll have low risk when time difference is more.
Many students change the passport once they are rejected. But there are many who receive a visa with rejected passport. The chances are 50-50. If you have all genuine documents and are really applying for visa to study then there is most probability of obtaining a visa. But if you donít have intention to study in USA and are applying just to enter USA, then most probably youíll be rejected.
A stamp of rejection in your passport may not be a problem if you have impressive documents, and if you answer all the questions asked during a visa interview properly. So manage impressive documents and prepare for all the possible questions that you may be asked by a consular during a visa interview.
