1-Testing | F1 Visa Interview Experiences

Sorry, F1 Visa Quota is Full for Today

Hemanth shared this interesting F1 Visa interview experience via email.

Way in which email is written, I’m not sure if this is credible experience. But, if in case this is true, we have learned something new – Visa officers have quota.

F1 Visa Rejection

my visa date is 6th july in delhi consulate..

vo: Good morning sir.
me:  Good morning sir.

vo: how many universts did you apply
me: told and extra i got scholorship

vo:  oh great, where the place is located to ur univesrty

vo:  please wait for 2 minutes

vo: sorry sir, visa is rejected.
me: why sir?

vo: my protocol is like this , so please support me and we have official limit, that’s why I rejected to your visa.

At 6th july I and another 65 members are coming to attend visa interview all of them rejected , all of them taken the potential immigration.

  1. Hello all,
    I don’t think there is any limit for F1 visas unlike H1-B visas (which has an annual limit of 60000 visas). Something is fishy with this interview.
    Thanks

  2. Sorry about your interview.Visa denial like I always say is issued based on an individuals performance, however diplomatic or governmental relationship between your home country and the United States can also affect visa issuance for F1. I have heard cases whereby people say it is advisable to apply beginning of the month for F1, because towards the end of the month the available quota gets filled up and becomes more competitive.Lets be honest, even jobs wont accept everybody’s application even if everyone is qualified, same thing goes for F1 and same goes for admission decisions at universities,they all have limited slots. So we can not rule out the fact that his story is fake.My advise is that you give it a shot after some time.Best of luck.

    1. Hey Boman,

      As per your statements, if some one applies at month end, there is a chance of getting rejected. But this person has applied on july 6th (month start). This is not the case right !!!

  3. You are right in doubting the veracity of this post. Maybe his GRE and TOEFL scores might have given rise to suspicion. From the way he writes, if not for ‘quota’ this applicant for would certainly have been rejected for lack of knowledge of English!

  4. Dear …..

    the visa officer is right, because California is the most popular state in USA. As a result, most of the international student apply to California which may cause extreme pressure to the state government of California.

    If you want to come USA, then get an I- 20 from other state. Not from California. It doesn’t matter whether you get a scholarship or not. The officer don’t care about partial scholarship. If you get full scholarship from any university then the case is different.

  6. stop that hell comments…,its true i also attended on that day nearly all f1 students got rejected before me on same reason,I’m also one of them ,he just asked one question y this university and rejected,

  7. This is true… they have only 100 visa’s per day. Even I have experienced this on 28th July and the reason what they gave me is that I do not have enough funds to sponsor my 1 Semester where as she did not ask me to show any documents where as I had X amt of crores to show which was there 2 fund my education and she said that I don’t have even 10 lakhs.. They don’t give u any correct reasons but reject you with absurd reasons when they come to know that the Quota is full..

    1. Did you attended the VI on 28th July, and posting the outcome of VI on 12th July.
      Or is it 28th June ?

  8. ma be it is real one….becoz i had rejected thrice even after given answers well….and they hadn’t tell me the region….even when i was there one of the visa is accepted within 10 sec and 20 visas rejected one after one….so i think it may be possible…..dude i really sorry about u…but u have to try again….

    1. Dude how can you imagine that you study oversear with such a poor English…. Improve it its really horrible

  9. Hi friends Today one of my friend attended second f1 with a gap of 2 months,so vo asked work experience for the gap of 2 months n finally rejected

  10. One of my frnd got 221 g slip on 6 july at delhi.
    It was because he had a TAL course for PhD in CNSE.

    So I can affirm you that this email is not authentic.

  11. The way this email is written, I can clearly see that the person is really poor in English and the risk of a miscommunication is really really high.

    After reading lines like this (especially the vo statement):
    vo: oh great, where the place is located to ur univesrty
    me: fresno

    I am almost willing to bet that this mail can not be authentic or credible

  12. not credible at all……….

    one of my friend got the visa on 7th july at New Delhi consulate for USC.

  13. VO do not have any quota. They can issue unlimited F1 Visas. International students pay thrice the amount of in-state tuition so they don’t mind issuing visas. Its a verified information from Department of Immigration.

    1. yes wat you have said is true. they can issue as many f1 visas as they want. they just need to be satisfied with the students communication and profile. there are limits nly for working visas not f1

  14. Where is this protocol written ?!?!?!
    Is it mentioned in any of “VISA REJECTION CONDITIONS” ? I don’t think so.
    I think you misunderstood.

    1. I think the conditions for VISA rejection is mentioned in VFS website. All the data is given.No need to get excited guys!!
