F1 Visa Interview Preparation

You can let the Visa officer know that you have the funds in your bank – mention the amount in INR and USD. Visa Officers rarely ask for documentation. If they specifically do, show them the bank statement.

Hi, I have 2 questions , Kindly help me with these.
1.My Course is MS in business analytics , but in I-20 its mentioned as MS in business statistics , what name should i mention to VISA OFFICER when he asks " What course are going to persue or why this course. If i say business analytics is it OK.?
2. How old should BANK BALANCE CERTIFICATE and BANK STATEMENTS should be before the VISA INTERVIEW?

  1. You should mention the course name as it appears on your University’s website.
  2. The bank statement should be within 30 days. If not possible, 60 days should be OK too. Typically, the Visa Officers don’t ask for documents, but it’s good to be prepared with the latest ones were they ask to produce them.

Good luck!

Hello Sir, I have a little problem on how to answer the question on Finances. I gained Graduate Assistant role which caters for 16k of my fees. I have a deficit of 13k which i will self fund. I am using my savings after working from 2013 and an amount I gained after my family sold one of His properties to a company. I would want to use this amount now in my possession to pay for the deficit and in total, its about 3.2 times more than the deficit. How should I go about the explanation. Thank you.

Hi. Congratulations on your admit.

We would have to learn more about your case and work with you to create a case strategically. That’s a service we provide, and you can learn more here: Student Admission Services

If you have more than the amount you need to show, then it’s not a problem. The guidelines are to show a minimum of 1X of your annual funds in liquid assets and the rest in other types of funds.

It sounds like you have more than that, so you should be good.
