Loving an Alien and Navigating the Immigration Process

True love knows no boundaries, right? Regardless of what country you or another person are from, you can fall in love with them. It's happened to me. However, falling in love is easy. It makes the boundaries between countries feel imaginary and meaningless. Unfortunately, before you can settle down and live together, you have to navigate the immigration process, and as a result, those boundaries and borders begin to feel more real. Wading through the immigration process can be confusing and even scary. I have made this blog to help you through it. It covers everything from obtaining temporary visas to choosing the best immigration lawyer. I hope this info helps you and your alien love establish your new life together.


You Encountered a Visa Refusal, Now What?

If you have applied for a visa and somewhere in the process you receive an email notifying you that your visa has been refused or denied, don't panic; an immigration attorney can help. Here's what you need to know about visa refusal and hurdles that you might encounter: 

Why Did You Get a Visa Refusal Email?

You are expected to meet various requirements when applying for a visa. If during processing it is found that you did not meet a particular requirement, a visa refusal email is sent. This email highlights that particular requirement you did not meet, meaning you can make arrangements to meet it for your application to be processed. If the email is not clear to you, maybe because it is your first time applying for a visa, you might need the help of an immigration attorney. They are in a position to find out the exact reason your visa was refused, correct the problem and help you get your visa.

That said, if it is your first time applying for a visa, try as much as possible to use the services of an immigration lawyer. You might spend a few coins, but you are possibly guaranteed a straightforward, smooth and successful visa application process. Immigration lawyers know where the problems lie and can ensure that your visa application process passes the hurdles.

What If You Get a Visa Rejection Email?

Such an email indicates that you made an error in the application process. You may have used the wrong visa application form or you did not follow the guidelines. Such mistakes are identified even before your visa application forms are processed or reach the decision-maker (the person who determines whether your visa application process is successful or not).

Such mistakes can be corrected, but you might need guidance so that you don't repeat them or make any other mistakes. As indicated above, contact an immigration lawyer for assistance.


Even if your visa application process is successful and you are issued with a visa, you still need to ensure that, as you hold the visa, you continue meeting the requirements that led you to successfully acquire your visa. If it is found that you do not meet them, it can be revoked.

Also, be careful not to indulge in any criminal activities; if you do, your visa is cancelled. Visa cancellation is not a good thing because it taints any future visa application processes. You might find that you may not be able to apply for visas in the future.
