FAQ Transcript

Whenever the authorities, whether it's 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.
