TRV Reapplication reasons


New Member
My status : work-permit

My girlfriend had applied for a TRV application in March requesting to visit me in July. She lives in the US on a H1-B visa.

But given the backlog and post Sept-7 changes...we are thinking on reapplying the visa as we think the current visa application is in a backlog.

Reason for previous application:

  1. Visiting boyfriend during Christmas holidays.
  2. Mental health of both of us being affected as we both have been in a long -distance relationship since a year.( We plan to have letters from both our therapists to acknowledge that)
  3. H1-B renewal. Her H1b renewal and stamping is due and she intends to go back to US for her job. She works as an research scientist for Amazon.
My question:

Can some one advice if these reasons (especially mental health and H1b renewal) as valid reasons for a new applications?

Information around re-application is scarce and so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

It's understandable that the delay in processing your girlfriend's TRV application is causing stress and mental health concerns for both of you. When re-applying for the visa, it's important to provide strong evidence to support the reasons for the new application. In this case, mental health may be a valid reason to re-apply. Seeking letters from both of your therapists may be helpful in demonstrating the impact of the long-distance relationship on your mental health.

I hope that this information is helpful to you, and I wish you all the best with your re-application.
