If my I-20 and SEVIS canceled and I left US to my country, then I got new I-20, do I need to apply for new visa or my F1 visa

Falls Church, VA |

If my I-20 and SEVIS canceled and I left US to my country, then I got new I-20, do I need to apply for new visa or my F1 visa still valid? The duration is less 5 months. (45 days)

  1. Best answer

    Check with the school as you may need to pay a new SEVIS fee. You should not need a new visa if time left on the last visa or duration of Stay. You will present the I-20 at Port of Entry but you may need proof that SEVIS fee was paid.
