Hi, I am an International Student in U.S. I came to U.S on B-2 visa last year and had applied for change of status to F-1 from here (U.S) after 3-4 months of my arrival. My case in USCIS got approved after few months and I stated my classes (Mast...
1. Yes. Procedure? Purchase a plane ticket. NOTE: You should talk to your DSO to see if the I-20 needs endorsing.
2. Yes you have to 'apply' for a visa ... you've never had the F-1, thus this is not a 'reapplication'.
3. In theory it is possible to travel for less than 30 days under the principle of 'visa revalidation'. https://www.cbp.gov/sites/default/files/documents/auto_reva_3.pdfSee question
Hi, I am an International Student in U.S. Initially, I came to U.S on B-2 visa last year (2015) and had applied for change of status to F-1 from here (U.S). It got approved in 2015 also. My spouse had applied for F-2 dependent visa last week and ...
I agree with Ms. Sharma ... all we can do is guess.
But, my guess will be that the Consul was not happy with you. You applied for a B-2 TOURIST visa and probably didn't tell them that you were an intending student.
Then, rather than going back to get a 'proper' F-1 visa, you filed a change of status. US Consular Visa Officers don't like this ... they consider it deception on your part. And, yes, they're probably taking it out on your wife.
Further, why did she apply for an F-2 is her intent was just a short vacation in the US?

I sent my package to uscis 2 days ago, my doctor contact me that they want one more test done.
Your question doesn't make sense.
Did the doctor already give you the medical report in a sealed envelope?

I am charged for shopplifting and simple possesing marijuana. Paid my bond. I have flight back home at 1st of october. And court is on 10th of November. Am I able to leave USA? I am intern from Serbia and I'm not under my visa anymore.
You need to talk to your criminal defense attorney.
This could result in them issuing a warrant for your arrest and possibly never being able to return to the US ... for the REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Yes, you can travel while waiting for the interview.
BUT, you need to be ready to fly back to the US on short notice .. .this may involve a $200, or more re-booking fee.
Do not try to reschedule the interview .. if you do, you will regret it.See question

Although they should have filed at-least 10 days prior to expiration, most likely the answer is yes.
But, most importantly, please tell us what the company's immigration lawyer said.
If you haven't talked to the lawyer ... why not?

The US is giving away Green Cards to thousands of DV (Diversity Visa) lottery winners every year that come from remote villages in Nepal. I think the US should stop this nonsense DV program and instead allow TPS approved US educated Nepalese to ha...
The DV program doesn't benefit all that many people from Nepal ... less than 10% to be exact: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/immigrate/diversity-visa/dv-2015-selected-entrants.html
