My F1 visa got terminated by my school by mistake. The school told me that once they enter the termination notice in the 'SEVIS' system, INS would not accept when it gets reversed at a later point. Is this true? Does anybody have any experience with this?
Instead, my school offered to fix the situation by issuing a new I-20 and have me re-enter the country. They told me that I don't have to get a new F1 visa sticker in my passport from the consulate. But then I would enter the US with an I-20 that shows a different SEVIS number from the one on my F1 visa sticker in my passport. Is this going to be accepted by the Immigration officer when i reenter the country?
Thanks in advance,
