Washington, DC asked in Immigration Law for District of Columbia

Q: I was denied b2 visa. Now I am working on a L visa.

My daughter and I were denied B2 visa last year when we tried to visit my son in the US (who goes to college here). My company is now sponsoring my L visa, would be past B2 visa denial be a problem for me to get my L visa or for my daughter getting her L2 visa? I work for one of the largest companies in China.

My daughter wanted to visit her friends in the US by herself (she was 15) and was denied because of immigration intent. I then went to consulate with her and we were both denied, likely because of the prior denial of my daughter. And now the denial is on the record.

A: It largely depends on what you call a mistake. If it was misrepresentation then you can be denied and will need a waiver
