    Hello, I am going for my second H-1B renewal visa stamping and had a question regarding following questions:

    Has your U.S. Visa ever been cancelled or revoked?
    I had F-1 visa before and believe it was cancelled after i had H-1B. Should the answer be "Yes"?

    Have you ever been refused a U.S. Visa, or been refused admission to the United States, or withdrawn your application for admission at the port of entry?
    My first attempt for F-1 visa was denied (2002) and had got visa on the second attempt (in few weeks) and don't remember the reason. In my previous visa renewal applications, i had this question answered as "NO" but i am not sure if this is correct.

    Experts, please advise me how to respond to this questions.

    Thanks cuckoo! Yes I had started a fresh application back then. For some reason I never put this as a denial in my previous Visa renewal application and never was questioned.

    If I do it now, would it be a problem if my previous DS-156 said it was not?

    Also I don't remember what the denial was based on as in those days they wud just give a paper.

    I believe you have to answer it as yes for F1 denial. My F1 was denied the first time too and I always answer it as yes.

    For your first question, I did not put the f1 cancellation. I have a 'cancelled without prejudice' stamp on my F1.

    I agree. Given a choice between sticking to a previous wrong answer and the actual fact, i would stick to the fact. You may find it easier to explain your previous error if ever the need arose than explain knowingly providing a wrong answer.
