Last month, I applied for F-1 visa for US. Unfortunately, I got rejected. I have decided to reapply. My relatives had sponsored me. I plan to apply after 5 months. I have a query that “Will I have to make the support affidavit again with new date?”
For how long the affadavit for US embassy can be valid. No information has changed, everything is same. Same college, same country and same amount of money.
Your websites have helped me a lot, you are really doing a humanitarian job. People waste a lot of money to agents. But I just followed the guidelines on your website.
Though I was rejected the visa but it was just because of a foolish mistake. Anyhow, please reply to my query.
Thanks for your encouraging comments. I try to help as many students as possible.
F1 Visa Rejected
I’m sorry to hear that your F1 Visa is rejected. But, one of my friend got his visa stamped during the third attempt. He got rejected twice. So, don’t give up hope. Also, you’d know by now, you have to really at your best when appearing for Visa interview. Your smile, voice tone, how you present yourself, confidence and much more. You didn’t say what was the foolish mistake, but good luck next time.
Validity of Bank Statement and Affidavit of Support
As far I know Bank statement and Affidavit of support is valid for 6 months from the date it was stamped or signed. I have looked at few universities web page, they will clearly say about 6 months validity. I assume same rule will apply to US Consulate too. Also, I do remember I have read about documents being valid for 6 months that will be used for US Visa stamping, but I cant say for sure. Read the Guide to apply for US Visa document from vfs.
