converting visa from B1/B2 into F1 visa!!!
Posted 11 May 2011 - 01:38 AM
1- How long does it take to convert the B1/B2 visa into an F1 visa?
2- If my visa gets converted into the F1 visa, does that mean my B1/B2 visa is cancelled and I have an F1 visa or what am I?
2- Will it be possible to leave the country for few months(after the conversion of my B1/B2 visa into the F1) and then return back to the US with ease to continue my studies ?
Thank you very much for answering!!!

USCIS has been very strict about doing such conversion after 9/11 – they don’t like ppl entering US on B1/2 lie to the CBP officer and when they have full intention to convert their visa.
If you are really serious about studying in US, then you should apply to school in US from your home country, see a CO and get F1 stamped on your passport and enter US on F1.
If you are lucky and you do get your visa converted, and you leave US you cannot enter US without going to consulate and doing an interview with them.
At that point CO would decide if he will grant you F1 or not, and worst case scenario, if he does not then you cannot enter US.
