I have applied for J1 research scholar visa after getting my DS-2019. I got my B1B2 issued last year and over the last 12 months I have spent 9 months in the United States in 3 different trips ( one for 2 months, 6 months and 1 month with no overstay). Will my history of travel on B1B2 affect my chances of getting J1 approved?
Our J1 and J2 visa of USA expires in June end 2019. We have got new DS-2019 form. We wish to apply for renewal of J1 visa (and J2 for wife) using drop box interview waiver program.
My queries are
1) "Do we qualify for drop box interview waiver program?"
2) "Do both of us need to be present in person for submitting the drop box letter with all original documents at the drop box centre in India OR Is it fine if any one of us or someone else visit the centre with all documents?"
My wife attended her visa interview on may 13th 2019 for J1 visa. She was previously dependent on me ( J2 till June 2018, H4 from june 2018 to now)
After she got her I-797 , she couldn’t get her H4 stamped and she went for J1 visa stamping interview directly. VO gave her 221g refusal form and put the visa on Administrative processing.
They took her passport / ds-2019. We haven’t heard anything from the visa consulate after that.
Do you have any suggestions about how to proceed from here on ? Any idea about the approximate duration for Admin Processing. Her residency start date is June 17th. So worried about it.
I recently secured an Internal Medicine Residency position in the US and applied for a J1 visa. My interview was in Delhi on 14 May 2019 and it got rejected. I was handed the 214 B letter and the officer said I violated the B1B2 visa, which I did not. My intent fo my previous travels to the US was for observerships, residency interviews, and CS exam. Has anyone had a similar experience? She did not take any documents except the DS2019 and my passport. I was not given a chance to present any documents. All questions were only about my observerships and why I spent so much time in the US. I am applying again but what are my chances and how I prepare better for the next interview?
I am on F1 visa. I came to USA on Dec,2017. Now I am on CPT doing internship this summer and also I am graduating this summer on August 10. I have already applied for OPT and requested my start date for August 12.
I had earlier applied for F2 visa 6 times for my spouse and son between march 2018 to april 2019 and all the time it got rejected. We got married on 2014
Now I am on CPT and want to apply again for F2. but I am thinking to wait untill i start OPT and work.
Can any one suggest me Is it ok to apply for visa while i am on CPT or I should wait untill i get my OPT approved and start work.

Asking for a friend
I have a quick question on the visa administrative hold.
The case m talking about had an interview on 17Apr 2019. My status did not update yet.
So, any approvals for candidates in the month of april after clearing the admin hold, please tell me the wait time
Many F1 Visa's are being put on hold for further admin processing and the financials are collected accordingly.
Anyone who have got their visa's issued post the admin process?
