Visa - USA

Visa Procedure

Scheduling an Appointment:  Prior to confirming a visa interview appointment online or at any US Visa Application Centre, Student need to pay the fees and obtain a Visa Fee Receipt from designated HDFC Bank. Visa Application Fee (MRV Fee): $131 in Indian Rupee equivalent at consular rate of exchange. Fill out a Visa Application Form DS-156, DS-157 and DS-158.

SEVIS FEE DEPOSIT:  All students & exchange visitors must pay mandatory payment of the Sevis (Student/Exchange Visitor processing fee) before arriving for a visa appointment at the consulate. The fee is US$ 100 non-refundable. An applicant is entitled to apply for a student Visa not earlier than 120 days before the registration date specified on the FORM I-20.

On the given date, the applicant has to appear for a personal interview. The applicant should convince the visa officer that he / she has the necessary funds to cover the cost of education. The applicant should prove that he / she has strong ties with India and also that he / she is not an intending immigrant. While answering the questions, one should be brief and to the point.

One should not be surprised or angry if the officer is unable to review all the documents that are carried by the applicant. Since officers have very little time for each applicant, they may not be able to look at many or even any documents at times. Therefore one should be prepared to explain one's situation orally and to answer all questions promptly, patiently and confidently.

The applicant will be informed whether he / she has been granted or refused a visa on the same day. The name of the University whose I-20 has been submitted to the consulate, will also be mentioned on the passport. Therefore it is advisable to make the final selection of the University very carefully. If, for some reason, your visa is rejected in the first attempt, you can reapply after 3 working days.
