• When to attend for Student Visa Interview

    When to appear for F1 Visa Interview for Fall 2015. How soon can i attend for Student visa interview after getting I-20.

    One can attend student visa interview within 120 days from start date mentioned on form I-20.

    If start date on I-20 is august 24th 2015, you can attend visa interview from April 24th 2015. You are not supposed apply for visa appointment with US consulate before 120 days period. Typically start date on I-20 will be 3rd Monday of August for Fall semester and 3rd Monday of January for Spring semester.

    June and July months very busy seasons of year for student visas since Fall semester student will be attending for visas. November, December are peak seasons for Spring semester students. Most of the students delay to attend visa interview till they hear from all the universities they have applied. But the good thing is to attend for visa interview as soon as you get the I-20 from your favorite university.

    Idle time for Spring students to attend visa interview is October or November of the previous year.

    Book visa dates ahead at least a month before. Fall 2015 students should start preparing required documents for F1 Visa interview such as bank statement, affidavits, assents evaluation.

    Don't wait till you receive final degree certificate. You can also visa interview with out final degree certificate.

      @cherukuri_ajay : I have got admit from UTA and waiting for decision from TAMU for spring intake. However, cant wait for the decision anymore for taking VISA. Is it possible that I can attend TAMU even after getting VISA on UTA I-20? If yes, then what will be the procedure.
      P.S: I dont want a transfer after 1st sem. I am asking for the procedure to get my SEVIS or VISA updated with a different I-20 details before I start the classes.
      Please guide. It will be really helpful.

      Yes, you can still apply for the F-1 Visa Interview even without Degree\ Completion certificate. But, you will need to carry your Academic Transcripts for the rest of the semesters.
      All the Best !

      can I apply for the visa after the I-20 start date, like a day or two days after if I got my bank statements late before that start time on the I-20?
