Richmond, VA asked in Immigration Law for Virginia

Q: This is regards to H4 to F1 conversion (Stamping in India). Rejected 1st time what are chances of approval 2nd time?

My wife went to India for H4 to F1 stamping and the visa got rejected with 214(B) clause and the description says it as the potential immigrant.

Interview questions were asked about OPT and why changing from H4 to F1.

What are the chances of approval for the second time?

What would be the best answer for why changing from H4 to F1 to avoid potential immigrant issue?

A: You wife needs to show that she has significant connections to India that would preclude her wanting to stay in the US—family, assets, school or work, etc.
