    Unfortunately no. If you have been refused visa before, you're not eligible for VWP.

    Thanks Marmaduk for ur reply.
    What if he does not disclose the visa refusal in form I-94W?
    Thanks

    What make you think the CBP officer doesn't have that record available on his computer screen?
    Lying to an immigration officer = gravest mistake you can make.

    Dear Marmaruk,
    Let me explain the situation in detail. The person in question is now citizen of a country which qualify for VWP, however, he was citizen of a third country when he applied for student visa & refused.That means he was not refused visa as a citizen of his current nationality. U think if he can argue that situation in his favor?
    Thanks

    Was your friend refused a visa in the past?

    Was this the same friend who has now changed his nationality...but is still the same person?

    To quote my friend, Marmaduk: "If you have been refused a visa before, you're not eligible for VWP."

    Applying for a student visa and being denied does not mean one cannot enter on the VWP. One can be denied a student visa for many reasons. One can also reapply if denied. One can apply as often as they want. There is no reason he could not come to the US on another program. Once denied does not set anything in stone. He is now a citizen of another country and is afforded the rights and responsibilities of his new country.

    "Nationals of VWP countries must meet the conditions noted in Which travelers may use the Visa Waiver Program to enter the United States? in order to seek admission to the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program. Travelers who do not meet these conditions must apply for a visa. In particular, a visa must be requested if the traveler:

    **Has been refused a visa or admission to the U.S. before, or did not comply with the conditions of previous VWP admissions (90 days or less stay for tourism or business, etc.)**" www.travel.state.gov

    Vito, your friend should call the embassy in his new country and ask if he can use VWP under the circumstences you described.

    People from VW countries need visa in some situations. I understand Vito's friend is one of them. Nobody ever said that he wan't receive it.
