I am a Canadian citizen (also hold a Bangladeshi passport - dual citizen), currently working in USA with my TN status. Since my wife is a bangladeshi citizen (we married recently), she applied for TD visa from Bangladesh, however she was rejected. So I found that TD visa is not very known in US embassy at Bangladesh (since TD/TN is for canadians/mexicans), so they refused on the ground of 214(b). I have never heard of a TD visa refusals but those applications were made in Canada, may be that is the difference.
Now there is a new situation. I am moving to UK now and applied for Tier 5 Govt Authorized Exchange work visa for 2 years duration. I got the visa and now my wife will apply for visa as a dependent of mine (we plan to arrive to uk on the same day (I from usa and she for Bangladesh) ). I am confused while filling out her visa application for UK. It is asking for the information that if she was ever refused for any country in last 10 years. I have a feeling that answering it ‘yes’ may reduce the chance of her UK visa (since US visa was refused due to lack of tie to her home country which does not make any sense though ). Answering it ‘no’ will be a lie but will increase the chances of visa it seems. Can someone plz suggest w
the problem is to convince that my wife has non immigrant intent and will not stay in uk after visa is over. for usa, the officer was not convinced abt her tie to home country since i can go back to canada but she cant as a bangladeshi citizen
note that we are newly married (6 months) and her canadian immigration is in process but will take longer.
