I have a question regarding the ESTA application for VWP. If a visa application to travel to the US was recently denied for a certain individual based on article 214(b), does that person still have the option to travel under the Visa Waiver Program if elegible? Does the fact that the visa application was denied makes the person automatically ineligible to be approved for an ESTA? If no, what would this depend on? My question is based on question (F) on the ESTA application form.
I sincerely thank you in advance for your assistance on this matter and any ideas or suggestions will be deeply appreciated.
