I was hoping that I could get some advice please.
I would like to visit New York for a week or so, so I went for a Visa interview here in London a couple of days ago and got refused because of a very serious crime that I committed when I was 17 (nearly 20 years ago).
I also noticed that the form I was given explaining why I was refused a Visa mentioned that I was not recommended for a waiver of ineligibility and that I have been permanently excluded, although I may apply again in the future but that there will not necessarily be a different outcome.
That last bit confused me so my question is am I really looking at being refused a Visa for the States for the rest of my life or could I re-apply after a year or so? And if I do go for another Visa interview is there anything I could try to do to re-assure the interview that I am no longer a threat?
Thanks in advance.
