    1. Hi Rashid

  3. HELLO,

    ( QUESTIONS)

    1.WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY B1/B2 VISA BEFORE AND AFTER THE F1 VISA.WILL IT BE CANCELED?

    2.AFTER OBTAINING THE F1 STUDENT VISA,I PLAN ON PAYING A 2 MONTH VISIT TO THE US EARLY AND COME BACK HOME.I WILL BE GOING WITH MY B1/B2 IF NOT CANCELED BY THE (VO) ,SINCE ALL STUDENT VISA HOLDERS MUST ENTER THE US 30DAYS TO SCHOOLS RE-OPENING,WILL THIS VISIT BE POSSIBLE OR CAUSE PROBLEMS FOR ME?

    THANKS

    1. If you are selected for the F1 visa, then you B1B2 visa will be cancelled. one person cannot hold visa of different category (as far as I know). but if you are not issued with the F1 visa, then your B1 B2 visa will not be affected.

      But if you are issued with the F1 visa, then you must have to obey the F1 visa regulation.

  4. I work for total. They like my work and I have been working with them for around a year now. I wanted to resign for my studies so my company offered me to sponsor in return of a three year contract with them after my studies

  6. Can any one tell if whether I can have two persons to sponsor me?For example My dad and uncle together has enough money to show during VISA,but none of them has that much cash of their own.So can I tell the VISA people both my uncle and dad are sponsoring me?Please reply as soon as possible.

  7. I want to ask that My Uncles Company is sponsoring me for My studies in USA so which documents would I be needing for the Visa interview as I am only having Companys Bank Statement Right now , what other documents would I need .

    I will be thankful to you if any1 of you please reply to my message please please please.
