Re: Car leasing Connecticut - where to start?

Re: Applying for ESTA when already refused entry

This.

Please don't overlook this. Did she arrive in the US and then was refused entry at the border, or did she have a denied visa application?

Re: E2 Visa COVID 19 and stuck back in UK

You will be denied, that said - I've heard of folks travelling to non "banned" countries (specifically I've heard of NZ being one of those countries) for 14 days and then transiting back to the US.
