The dreaded visa process!Students need to apply for a non-immigrant visa. The offer of admission to an accredited programme in the US does not guarantee a student visa! Students are usually admitted in the F-1 category. People who will be participating in an exchange visitor programme need to apply for the “J” Visa. The officer who interviews you is highly trained so be alert, answer questions with confidence and support responses with relevant documents. Your visa interview typically lasts for 5 minutes but can go up to 15 minutes! Be forthcoming in the interview. May, June, July, and August are the busiest months in most consular sections. So begin early and be prepared.
