    mistake on i-20


    I just got my i-20 and realize there was a mistake with my date of birth.I sent an email to the school to have the i-20 changed before the interview day and i m yet to get the changed i-20 and my visa appointment is for next week. I am running out of time. can i still go for the interview with the i-20 at hand or should i wait for the i-20 with correct date of birth?

    hope to hear from someone

    just email the university get the I20 express shipped. Don't go with the wrong I20 otherwise the visa stamping would have the wrong dob. it wont affect u when u are in ur home country but it would create havoc when u are in USA. postpone ur visa appoinment but make sure every detail on the i20, passport and other docs is same and correct.

    They don't check your birth date from I-20 while stamping your visa. Make sure you have filled correct date while filling DS-160 as they use this DS-160 to refer your profile. I-20 is just a proof of admission and tuition fees .If you don't get your updated I-20 before appointment ,Don't worry u can go ahead with that I-20. In worst case If they notice it, you can show them the email from university about that mistake and new I-20 request. Don't delay too much since its already late for F1 VISA and declining rate increases as time passes. Best Luck!!
