US Student Visa Denied - What Should I do Before Reapplying?
Asked by: ebson

I want to know what can I present or say to them so as to prove them that I have ties to my home country and I would definitely come back after completion of my studies. They require 5 credits in the WAEC exam to consider you as a good student and I was fortunate to have 8 credits.
There are two good websites you can look at to hear stories from successful and unsuccessful visa applicants for some tips.
Also look at this article about how consular officers evaluate student visa applications: http://markashwill.wordpress.com/2010/11/14/of-student-visas-community-colleges/
Hope that helps!

“Ties” are those things which bind the applicant to his or her country. A combination of family, social and economic ties is usually required to convince a consular that you would return to your country after completion of your studies. If you are able to show the documental proof of your possessions and belongings to your country, you are normally not denied a student visa on the basis of ties. Your possessions (land, house, vehicle, bank balance, share certificates, government bonds), employment (good post and good salary), social and family relationships (activity in the society, memberships, affiliations to associations) can be good evidence to show your ties to your country.
