I have completed 1 semester on H4 and have 2 more to go. I am planning to convert to F1 visa just before my last semester as it is complicated to find visa slots right now. What are the odds of approval. Does anyone have similar experience?
1. I’m applying for F1 to study my MSC. electrical engineering in US in fall 2021
2. Previously applied for B2 visa in December 2018 got rejected on 214B (was attending my sisters graduation then...had only UAE as a travel history )
3.Traveling experience from 2018.....Germany, Austria, Switzerland,Italy,UAE & Maldives
4. I’m currently working with 6years working experience in a company in my country
Mom & dad in the USA on .....LPR
Sister married and in USA & a citizen and my sponsor for education in the states
What are my chances of grasping the visa this time ?
Applied for F1 Visa with 15 year of work experience
Please share your valuable feedback.
I have 15+ year of work experience and have got admit for a masters course in one of the US University. I have applied for F1 visa and wanted to get a feedback on whether i would face any difficulty during interview.
I have had H1B in the past around 16 years back where i stayed in US for about 3 months. Post that I have had a B1/B2 visa but never went or landed in US.
PLEASE HELP--STEM OPT EXTENSION-EMPLOYER NAME E-VERIFY ID QUERY
am an f1 visa candidate. I was hired by company xyz and company 123 is the parent company of company xyz. I have to file for STEM OPT Extension, which requires the following details:
1. "Employer name" as in E-verify account and "e-verify id number" of the employer
The "e-verify receipt document" after i-9 was filled and processed was received and it said "authorized to work". This document has the parent company e-verify ID and the case number pertains to the parent company.
The paycheck has the company xyz's name and this is the same for on W2 form. When I checked the EIN it pertains to company XYZ. Somehow the address on both shows the comp. 123 headquaters address and not the local site I was hired by.
Company 123 is registered on e verify program and xyz is not as of now (got terminated).
Since the e verify document i got after filing i-9 has the company 123 (parent company) in it. Shall I proceed with the name and ID of the parent company to fill the forms of my STEM OPT extension?
I am on F1 Visa doing my MBA. I will be graduating in May this year and have a job offer to work on my OPT. My wife is planning to come here to attend my graduation ceremony and stay with me during my OPT. She has her visa interview in two weeks.
I am confused what should we tell them as the reason for the visit. Should we tell them that she is visiting for a short duration to attend the graduation ceremony. in that case I would have to give proof of financial capability to sponsor her trip. Or should we tell them that she is coming here to stay with me for the opt period. I have my offer letter that i can show but i am waiting for my ead which will be given after my graduation. Do they specifically ask for ead if she tells them that i will be working after graduation on opt.
I am on F1 visa and I had a problem where my teacher drop me from the class without even telling me. Unable to add another class, I figure there would not be any problem because I was going to pay for this class anyways. Turns out I fell out of status and my student coordinator came to know about too late. She ask me to apply for I-20 reinstatement and it is been a year since we summited that application. Does anybody know how long does it actually take to get a F1 reinstatement?

I aspire to study MS in USA. My parent has a L1 visa and I hold L2. Due to covid we have not been able to travel to USA on these visas even once.
My visa L2 is valid till Mar 22. There is high chance that my parent will travel to USA in mid 2021 for work. My queries are:
1>Can I apply for F visa so I can apply to universties as international student irrespective of my L2 visa.
I am trying to help my friend's daughter to get her F2 visa. Her fiancé is on opt and have F1 visa stamped till sometime in 2022, he is going to India in Feb and plan to get married there. Now he has already visa he does not need to go to embassy to get visa stamped but the daughter will have to go once she get marriage certificate. I have few questions:
1. Can she apply for an appointment before marriage but actual appointment date would be after marriage?
2. Does she need i-20 for herself or would that be her husband's i-20?
3. If she needs i-20, how can she get it? Who should apply husband/daughter and can it be applied before marriage?
Goal is to get married in Fed first week and come back to usa together.
