Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am a student of a university of San Francisco, I'm doing my masters in computer science. I was on a vacation to India this summer i.e. A month back and while going back to United States , on the board of entry of San Francisco my visa was revoked and they gave me ban of 5 years under section 212(a) 7(a)I (i). I have my final semester left and I want to go back to complete my masters. Why do I need to do?

How were you working? On OPT, or on the side while studying? You are not allowed to work on an F1 except in very specific circumstances.

Get a lawyer pronto. One that is well versed in these cases.

This is not going to be a quick fix. You are most likely going to miss your final semester (fall, right?).

IF you can file a waiver then try for it, But nothing is guaranteed so be prepared for a denial and having to wait out the ban just in case.

They said that I can apply for a waiver and come back again .

As far as I know, officers at the border often give wrong information for the purpose of calming you down (have read stories here from people to whom it happened), but I don't think it would hurt to try.
