mrprolifik:Thanks for the reply and yes i did.
I traveled on a different date and I spent 13 days instead of the 7 days i stated on the form. I also traveled to a different state and at a different travel dates. I have valid explanations for all these

If the F1 visa is approved the B1/B2 visa will be revoked.
But if the F1 visa is denied there is no reason cancelling the B1/B2 except in cases like ,if other issues come up pertaining your past travel that you cant defend.
But from the few ppl I know that had similar scenario their B1/B2 visa wasn't cancelled after they were denied F1 visa.

Please i want to ask, has the embassy started issuing B1/B2 visas. My relative who was due for interview before the lockdown got a message of the interview being postponed. I want to know if they have started and the process to follow about it. Thanks.

To the best of my knowledge, the Visa offices are not yet opened. So nope.

@the bolded! Cancelled gini?
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by slashthroat: 1:26am On Jun 11|
He is correct! You cannot have 2 visas of the same category
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by GboyegaD(m): 7:53am On Jun 11|
He can file for her irrespective of her age. If she is below 21, it is faster but above 21 might take years.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by GboyegaD(m): 7:56am On Jun 11|
How do you mean all must have ended?
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by GboyegaD(m): 8:10am On Jun 11|
I guess it is tricky. Let me give an example. I got F1 in 2011 and upon graduation, I applied for a B1/B2 in 2013. Each time I traveled to//through the US until 2014 Christmas after I got the B1/B2, I was always delayed and kind of re-interviewed at the point of entry. December 2014, the border officer made a copy of my F1, stroke it out with two lines, and wrote C.W.O.P. in between the lines. He told me the system was still showing the F1 as active which is why I needed to go through the quizzing.
Down the line, I got another B1/B2 which is valid for 10years and also have a F1 valid for 5 years. Nothing is been said on the B1/B2 and I have been in and out a few times but they let me in on the F1 visa during this time.
This is contradictory to my initial experience and could imply one can have two different visas active on one's profile i suppose. I am guessing the length of stay could be the reason for the initial situation. While F1 gives duration of status, B1 gives 6months.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by mrprolifik: 8:43am On Jun 11|
I quite agree with you Omobendel that I wasnt totally correct on my answer . After some research via www.travel.state.gov . I was able to find out that an applicant can actually have 2 different U.S visas such as F1 and B1/B2 in his or her passport but cant have two status at the same time while in the USA. In other words can only be admitted to the USA on either of the visa depending on the purpose of travel.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by johnJS: 2:36pm On Jun 11|
Hello Gboyega interesting insights. Would you mind sharing what country's passport this 10 year B1/B2 visa was issued in? Within the limits of my knowledge I understand the B1/B2 visa is limited to 2 years for Nigerian passports. I have heard this is also the duration Nigeria issues similar visas for the US and of course the US tends to be big on reciprocal administrative policies.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by slashthroat: 1:54am On Jun 12|
He has Southy pali. They give 10years
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by GboyegaD(m): 2:50am On Jun 12|
I am a Nigerian and on a Nigerian passport. So I moved to the US to study and then moved to Canada for further studies where I got Permanent Residence. I am back in the US now and the reciprocity law allows Canada PR 10 years Visit Visa.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by GboyegaD(m): 2:55am On Jun 12|
Which one is Southy pali?
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by seyewest(m): 3:51pm On Jun 12|
South African Passport.

GboyegaD:Gboyegaaaaaaaa!!! Been ages. I thought you settled down in Nigeria already. Good to see you here again. Thanks for the help in those years ago. I can never forget you. Ayo ni o
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by GboyegaD(m): 10:23pm On Jun 12|
Is this Kofsy cos that is the only person I guess might use this name? If not, can you remind me who you are? I only came for an internship then. Might settle down in Naija in the future.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by GboyegaD(m): 10:24pm On Jun 12|
I'm a Nigerian with a Nigerian passport ooo.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by johnJS: 9:58am On Jun 15|
Thanks a lot for sharing.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by johnJS: 10:00am On Jun 15|
Never heard SA or passport called that before
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Lajiniran: 3:07pm On Jun 27|
What is the implication of overstaying your Tourist or Visit visa?
Probably to finally migrate to the US, is it possible?
I know some guys who went on visit or tourist visa and never came back. Thanks
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by fkj950ax(m): 6:48pm On Jun 27|
Overstaying your tourist visa means you are Out of Status, which is a serious offense for CBP/ICE and State.Gov, which are the same agencies to approve your migrant visa/permit etc.
You will continue to live as an illegal immigrant.
Donald Trump's ban and restriction and suspension of visas have also made Adjustment of Status almost impossible.

|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Chips101: 7:19am On Jun 29|
LOL. Please check the US embassy website for any news on their reopening. However I think you might need to put a hold on any plans for the 2020/2021 school year because, as you can see, the world is in the throes of a pandemic, and the US is dealing with it very poorly.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by UhnNah: 9:10am On Jun 29|
Very poorly and non-chalant,People are not listening to simple instructions! Social distance and mask up! China and most european countries are already moving out of this covid situation but trump is busy having rallies and thinks the virus would just disappear without ENFORCING proper rules! EU is opening up their border & has temporarily excluded the United states,Nigeria etc from entering their space due to the way they’re handling the pandemic! The earlier the better! China was disciplined,that’s why they’re moving forward now!
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by fkj950ax(m): 4:20pm On Jun 29|
Exactly like the Nigerian Government.
Seems we have things in common with the US Government
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Sanguine1: 5:02pm On Jun 29|
Yeah. In summary:
No specific date on embassy reopening but they are actively working to figure out how to expedite student visas when it does reopen.
The main question in the interview is proof that you intend to be a student, they don't want rehearsed answers proving your home ties, they just want to know that you're qualified to be a student and intend to study in the US.

Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by tmphoto : 11:08am
I just watched the US Embassy Live interaction on F1 student Visa however the take-away from there is they said they are going to make the F1 Visa Application a priority when they resume that is they will be attending to it majorly and who knows maybe a lot of F1 visa issuance since their quota for giving it out this year haven’t reach Halfway
N/B: they didn’t talk about when they are going to resume but I think it’s soon as they were so positive and they made mention of them having something they are or would be running for it.
Best of lucks.

Sanguine1:Ok thanks for this info. I'm patiently waiting for my passport to be issued at the immigration.
But are us visa applications open or ongoing?
At what junction will I wait for the US embassy to be open
