US Refused Beauty Queen’s Visa, See Why

Onyxnewsng quotes BBC reports that a United Kingdom beauty queen denied permission to fly to the US to compete in a global pageant says she believes her visa was refused because she was born in Syria.

Leen Clive, from Hessle, East Yorkshire, is due to represent the United Kingdom in the Mrs World final.

The trainee NHS doctor said her family’s visas to visit Las Vegas were granted but hers was not as she was born in Damascus.

The US embassy has been contacted for comment.

I applied with a British passport, I am representing Britain and I’m a British citizen so I had no idea that I’d be banned from the US,” Mrs Clive said.

Since arriving in the UK in 2013, the 29-year-old has learned to speak English and also campaigned for female equality and the rights of refugees.

She is due to take part in the 35th annual Mrs World event, which is open to married women, alongside 57 other contestants.

However, the visa issue may mean the UK cannot send an entry to the January 15 event.

Mrs Clive arrived in the UK in 2013 and is currently training to become a doctor with the NHS

On its website, the US government says applicants who are citizens of countries which use state-sponsored terrorism must be interviewed by a consular officer.

“My husband and my baby girl had their visas granted, but mine was refused – and the only difference is my place of birth,” Mrs Clive added.

Meanwhile, the miss world’s husband Nigel Clive had his visa application accepted, along with their daughter

Emma Hardy, Hull West and Hessle Labour MP, said she was trying to intervene and rectify the situation.

Mrs Clive appealed to the US embassy for “common sense” to grant her visa in time for her to attend the competition.

“I’m still hopeful. I know I’m running out of time, but if someone from the embassy could look at my application then things could be different.”
