Hi, my F1 student visa was rejected 3 times till now once in Chennai consulate and twice in Hyderabad consulate.

In the last interview Visa officer said like this "I recommend you not to apply again as you are not eligible for this type of visa" and passed 214B

Is it a permanent visa denial? can I apply again?

Hi. I recently attempted to enter the US on a J1 visa which was revoked at border control. The CO had found evidence of work under an ESTA in my previous 2 visits to the US and I had obviously not put this in my application for the J1.

 I was told I could apply again for a J1 by the CO following my interview therefore I had not been banned from any visa application process.

I am now wondering what my options are and the likelihood of being accepted for either a B1/2 or other temporary work visas in the future?

Hi there,

I am currently on OPT & my current EAD is expiring on 15 July. I have applied for STEM extension and have received the i-797 notice. But the approval is still pending. 
I want to go to India to attend my sister's marriage and come back on July 12. Is it advisable to do so?

​​​​​​​I am a little skeptical because I will only have 1 working day left in my current OPT. Also, even if the I-797 notice mentions that my current work authorization is extended for another 180 days till my STEM-OPT is pending, I am wondering if this is enough to convince the immigration officer to enter to the US.

My fiance is on F1 visa (OPT with 2 years of experience) we are planning to get married in *January 2020* And his I20 is about to expire in *May 2020* . So what visa should I apply for? F2 (as I20 period is very less are there any chances of rejection?) or B1/B2 ( As per my knowledge, we can stay max 6 months in USA)? What would be the best option for me?

My I-20 document said it covers till the next 3 years, however, I might not be able to continue my education dues to funding issue. Yet, I am in the process of marrying a US citizen and will apply for permanent resident status. If I do not have sponsorship from school to register to the next semester, is my 1-20 still ok to stay in the US or it will be automatically terminated? What kind of status do I have while staying in the US?

Thanks in advance.
