Hello e-family, am a newbie here and don't even know if am using the right medium to make comment. A friend referred me to this platform and honestly, am impressed with what I have seen so far.

I got admitted unconditionally to ETSU for fall 2018 semester, but am presently having delays in my visa process.

Please can someone help out on the following;
1. How to make comment on the right thread so friends who has ideas can help out.
2. How to make PM (personal message).
3. Would like to be link to justwise, lagosismyHome, imperiouxx, walspring, texrem, profOjah1234 and chiezhh.

Thank you AbujaNIV. Sorted!

Dear AbujaNIV,

Great work you all are doing here. I am a current Graduate Student in the US, and with two classes left, I will be graduating by December, 2018. I came back to Nigeria for a funeral and some business, and thought it wise to renew my visa even though it was still valid, but had a few days left. Since, I have used the dropbox service with my previous visa, I thought it wise to do a dropbox with the F1 too, especially with about 22 days still left on the visa. However, my passport is yet to be delivered and as at last check, the current status displaying "administrative processing". Here are my timelines

Passport dropped: June 1st
Passport update/received: June 6th
Email sent to Abuja requesting update: June 20th
Passport changed to "administrative processing": June 20th
Date of previous F1 expiration: June 23rd

I had wanted to take a class in Summer II, but now I have to push it to the fall. In all, I have two classes to take to before graduating in December, 2018.

I have changed my return flight to the states twice, waiting on my passport. I had planned a few business travels before the end of the year, and hence the renewal was important. Any update on my F1 renewal will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your update.

Hello Nairaland,
I am presently filling the DS-160 form, but I am stuck on the present occupation section.
Please I need your view on that.
I finished youth service December 2017 and I haven't had anything tangible doing since then.
My January to March was used to prepare and write my GRE exams.
April till now, I have been in London ever since helping my aunt out.
So whats your advice on what to fill in the present occupation section?
Thanks in anticipation.

Hello, Nairaland!

Our other visa thread, U.S. Non-immigrant Visas: We’re Listening, has been a success in dispelling some of the myths associated with the visa process. We have enjoyed answering all of your pertinent questions and as we get ready for the upcoming summer cycle that sees a huge increase in student visas, we wanted to create a new forum JUST for applicants with questions about student visas (F1, M1, & J1).

We are U.S. Foreign Service Officers working in Abuja and Lagos and we are looking forward to answering your student related questions. Please note that we do not comment on specific cases, we do not offer advice, and we will not answer abusive or insulting posts.

While we will attempt to explain U.S. immigration policies on student visas and provide overall visa application guidance, any opinions expressed are the personal views of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the views of the United States Government.

There is a separate Immigrant and Diversity Visa thread at https://www.nairaland.com/1792591/u.s-immigration-questions-ask-u.s., also handled by a U.S. Foreign Service Officers in Nigeria, so please use this thread only for questions about student visas. If you have general non-immigrant visa questions, please visit the other thread here, https://www.nairaland.com/1792662/u.s-non-immigrant-visas-listening.

We look forward to hearing from you!
