The F-1 Visa is the common type of student visa issued to International students who wish to pursue their higher studies in America. Without the visa, you will not be allowed to enter the country. Even if you have another type of visa, have entered the country, you will not be allowed to enroll in the university of your choice if you do not have the F-1 visa. Obtaining this visa requires proper preparation and adequate interview skills as many reasons can cause its rejection. If for some reason, your visa application has been rejected, other options are available, so do not worry.

REAPPLYING FOR F-1 VISA:

If your first application was rejected, you do have the option of reapplying. Many students whose visa applications are denied the first time are accepted the second time around. But, it is important that you obviate any possible negatives which might have caused the rejection the first time around.

COMMON REASONS FOR F-1 VISA REJECTION:


If you find that any of the above reasons is the reason behind the reject, work to remove them, and try again. You can apply as many times as you want (it's not recommended to apply too many times unless you have a valid reason to reapply), many students who receive rejects in the first and second tries, do get admits in their third and final try. So do not lose hope and keep on trying.

1. EDUCATION IN OTHER COUNTRIES:

2. STUDYING IN HOME COUNTRY:
