FAQ Transcript

Whenever the authorities, whether it is a judge or the government says "canceled without prejudice" that means they are canceling for some technical reason. This is not going to cause any harm if you want to apply for the same visa again. This therefore means cancellation without affecting your ability to apply again. It is not a black mark against you.

My non immigrant visa was stamped cancelled without prejudice during my greencard interview which was refused in the end. Why would they give me a "good cancellation" if they did not intend on approving my new visa? Now I am stuck without no visa at all. Can someone help please.
