you can apply immediately again, no time frame is there between applications.

Potential rejection reason could be no having good ties back to India for your parents/sibling. A permanent job for parents, long standing business, fixed assets etc are some reasons of tie back to the home country for the tourists. Immigration officer must believe that these applicants would return in time.

Two events influenced the decision to reject: age of your sibling and the job that your dad does. 'Insurance agent' implies that he is an independent contractor and not employee of the company. Is that true? Also how old is your sibling and what is her present occupation (student, job etc)? And if she is a student, when is the trip planned for and for how long? Disruption of an academic year is highly suspicious unless the trip is for 2-3 weeks or less.

Hello sshakar,

My Father is work in LIC but while answering that question he just said Insurance agent. and my sibling is 10th pass student so we had planned for 2,3 weeks only.
But i agree as you said "insurance agent" must be the reason for cancellation.

But now next i want to apply just for my mother what will be the good time to apply again please suggest.
