F1 Visa: Chennai – Rejected Twice; Kolkata – Reject & Damaged Passport

I really have a problem i do not know how its going to affect. I applied for f1 visa for twice in Chennai consulate and got rejected so i took a month gap and reapplied for the visa but this time i could not find a slot in Chennai so booked a slot in kolkata and where i was rejected again. The sadest part is that when traveling back to Chennai my passport got damaged. The query is that when i spoke with my consultant she said to go to the passport office and ask for a reissue of a new passport as it is damaged it cannot be used for the visa interview. So please help me sir will this reissue of the new passport affect my us visa interview?

F1 Visa Denied – Three Times

  • Chances of getting F1 Student Visa doesn’t change if you change the consulate.
  • If visa is rejected, then you have identify the reason why visa was rejected
  • If didn’t address the problem, then there is no use in attending visa interview again.

If your passport is damaged, then you have to get new passport. Looks like you are working with a consultant, ask them for procedure to reapply apply for passport, if not go to near by passport office and find out the procedure to reapply for passport.

New Passport and US Visa

Lets assume that you passport was damaged by accident. Having new passport will not influence your visa chances, unless identify the reasons for rejection and fox those mistakes.

If in case you were wondering that  you can get visa with new passport, without mentioning your old passport, you are wrong.

    Adding to this, if you go to a different consulate after rejection for NO valid reason, you create unwanted suspicion and probably hurt your chances marginally.
    Damaged passports don’t really hurt (unless you are missing pages), lost passports may hurt (how much depends on circumstances).
