Section 214 (b) imposes liability of proof on the applicant to demonstrate that it has no intention of being a permanent immigrant (generally, he or she plans to stay permanently in the United States or plans to work illegally). If the applicant fails to convince the consular officer who is not an immigrant, the law requires the consular officer to deny the visa.
