Hi,

I got married in 2017 and moved to the US in F2 visa while my husband was on F1 Visa. My husband got job in an University (public) as assistant professor in Aug 2018. He's now on his F1- OPT. I've got admit for MSCS in his University itself for Fall 2019. I'm currently in India to get F1 Visa. Please clear the following queries.
 
1. What are my chances of getting my F1 Visa approved provided my husband works as a assistant professor? Will that mean that we are intended to stay and a possible reason for my F1 Visa to be rejected?
2. Has anyone faced a similar experience? If yes, please reply to this post.

Thanks in advance for reading through a very long email

I got admitted into UC for Executive Ph.D. in Information Technology for Spring 2019 term. I am currently on F1 visa. Before that I have admitted and completed into Keller Schoool of Mangement for MBA in Information Technology in 2015-2017. I have used my Masters OPT for 12 months and switch back to UC for Ph.D and staying F1 visa. I plant to go to india in August 2019 during my summer 2019 semester to get my F1 student visa interview. Before that I have done H1B stamping in the year 2014. After that, now only i am going to india to get stamping for F1 student visa. In my Ph.D. still I didn't apply for CPT.

Could you guys help me to get the visa interview in smooth way? If you guys have any experience please share to get my visa stamping.

Thank you in advance.

My wife has F-2 Visa Interview in Chennai on 6th May 2019. I'm doing my MBA from Arizona State University on F-1 Visa. I had sent her all the required document for her interview along with both of our I-20 and original marriage certificate through UPS. The documents are still in transit even after 1 month, so I sent her another set of I-20 issued by my university through one of my friend going to India. The problem is she doesn't have our original marriage certificate, she the only copy we had is still in transit. I have sent her the scanned copy and ask her to take a color print out. But if the VO doesn't accept that, how can we justify our case or what can we do in this situation? Somebody please advice me what can we do to convince the VO of our case?

Hello,

My wife had a visa interview on 22 April 2019. VO said an application is approved and you will receive a passport in 2 days. She gave her letter which says your passport will deliver to address you choose. It is not 221G.
But now https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx shows status as “Administrative Processing”. I don’t know what should I do. Does anyone have the same situation before for F2?

Interview date: 04/22/2019 - Delhi

VO: can I have your I20?
Me: Here you go
Why this university?
I liked the course structure of this university.
Who is sponsoring you?
My husband.
What he does?
He is technical lead in a software company.
Is he here in India or US ?
He is in US on H1B.
Sorry your visa can't be approved, you can study on H4.
Can you please tell me the reason. I can study on H4 but in case my husband is coming back early, I will go out of status.
Sorry, I can't approve your visa.

Could you please tell me where I went wrong ? VO looked very chill, still can't figure out where I went wrong. Any suggestions?

Date : 17 January 2019

Place : Delhi

Time : 9:00

My husband is on F1 status and his cpt was expired on 23’rd December 2018. He already applied for opt. His graduation will be complete on May 2019. We got married on 15 November 2019. I have worked as an Assistant Professor in the university. I was pretty much confident but still had little nervous.

VO was a charming lady and responded well.

Me: Hello, Good Morning mam!! ( with a smile)

VO : ( smile) Good morning! Can I have your passport please?

Me: Yes, sure here it is
( She was looking at the monitor screen and continuously typing)

VO :Can I have yours and your husband’s I20?

Me: Handed the I20

VO: When did you guys first meet ?

Me : On a matrimonial site.It’s a kind of love to arrange marriage.

VO: What’s your marriage date ?

Me: 15 November 2018

VO: How many guest arrived to your marriage?

Me: Around 800

VO: Can I see your marriage certificate and some pictures?

Me: Gave her all the proofs
( She smiles and said you both looking so nice together) I was feeling confident.

VO: What do you do in India ?

Me: I work as an Assistant professor in xxx university.
After few seconds...she smiled at me ..

VO: Congratulations, I’m approving your visa and you have a great married life.

Me: ( so much happy to hear that) Thank you so much mam..and you have a nice day.

This is all about my experience. I had prepared a lot for interview every type of expected and unexpected questions but the interview went so smooth. She didn’t ask anything about my husband.

So the only key to get the visa is Confidence and have faith in your self that you can do it. Always say the truth develop your body language. Prepare for interview in front of the mirror or wth someone.

Good luck ...😊
