  1. Hello, One of my relatives has completed the DS-160 form for B1/B2 new visa application in India, however while completing the next step which is completing the MRV fee and setting up an appointment, I am seeing a pop-up message saying that MRV fee is only valid for 1 year and then it expires. Given that currently B1/B2 visa waiting time is 2+ years in India, does this mean:- if we pay now on 12/30/2022, the interview date has to be by 12/30/2023, or if we pay now on 12/30/2022, we can schedule the interview within 12/30/2023 for an actual interview date later in 2024 e.g. 6/1/2024? Thank you for your help in advance!

  3. Hello, I have enter USA on tourist visa (B1\B2) in 2014 (Valid till 2024) and did status change to student visa (F1) got approved (No stamp on passport) inland I was in USA till 2018 on Student visa (F1). Then I moved to Canada (in 2018) got married to Canadian citizen. Currently having Indian citizenship and Canadian PR. The question is these November 2022 my wife's cousin getting married in USA and they have invited us for wedding can I still re enter USA on tourist visa (B1\B2 as its valid till 2024) or I need to re apply for new tourist visa because of change of status inland to student (F1) and not having stamp on passport before leaving USA? If yes tourist visa (B1\B2) stamped on passport still valid, Speaking practically will the immigration officer will let me enter the USA or not as I previously enter USA on same status (B2) and change of mind to student (F1) he/she can deport me and bard me from re entering? (I will have my wife (Canadian citizen) traveling with me and will have return ticket for both of us) Thank you.
  4. Hi, me and my wife have applied for Tourist visa, we have our interview at Vancouver consulate, we do not have our original marriage certificate, we have only photocopy of it, would it be an issue? or should we be fine. our passports do not show our names under spouse. we recently got married. Please let me know
  5. Say, Dmitri has come to the U.S. with the tourist (B1/B2) visa (which was issued to him for 3 years). Then, while being in the U.S. he applied for asylum. Later while his B1/B2 stay was still valid (less than 6month after arrival) he received a denial of asylum. The question is: After asylum denial, what happens with his B1/B2 Visa? Variants: 1)Nothing: he may safely leave the U.S. and then later, let“s say in half a year, visit the U.S. again? or 2) B1/B2 visa will be automatically cancelled, so that Dmitri will not have a chance to visit the U.S. with this visa (and probably will have a hard time getting a new one in future)? 3) Or some other variant is possible? I highly appreciate your help.
