Just a quick question, is it possible to get appointment in August or September. Apparently this agent claims he can. But I have doubts. Is that possible under any circumstance?
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Chubbypantda: 2:53pm On Jun 04
Good afternoon everyone and thanks for all your insights on this, you've been very helpful, I applied for a visiting visa in April and have not gotten an interview date yet, I'm wondering what could be the cause for the delay, can anyone help with an answer? Thank you.
fkj950ax:
A couple of states in the USA are opening up gradually and even allowing in-person gatherings of up to 200.
Even live events of 500 indoors are available.

Texas has even gone rogue and opened 100%

I am an EDM enthusiast and festival dates are popping up a lot for several festivals in Florida, Las Vegas, Austin, Atlanta, California, Illinois, etc.
Those planning to travel for vacations can start fixing up summer periods.

I don't have info on conferences, but I am sure they will start announcing soon.

Then we wait on US Embassy in NG to also announce the full resumption of interview appointments.

Yes you can . When you get to the USA you can always change from euro to dollars at the bureau de exchange located in the airport or other places in the city. But mind you the exchange rate at the airport isnt always favourable.

hello..good morning everyone. I have been a silent viewer on this platform and I have been gaining a lot of information from different people. my question goes as this; my interview date for my f1 visa was June 2nd but it was shifted to June 17th, this is my second time applying for an f1 visa, the first time I was denied. I just finished my classes for the spring semester here in Nigeria and I got a GPA of 3.78, how do I mention this to the visa officer so it could increase my chance of getting an f1 visa. what I mean is that, what question can the VO ask me, that can i use my GPA score to answer.

PSA
USCIS has extensive info on its website, including October 2020 info update on what to do if you are a nonimmigrant still in the US due to COVID, Lockdown, Flight Delays/Cancelation and slow reply to EOS request, but you are too smart not to read up USCIS website.

Your folks are fine. No penalty for being there up till now. Just that you haven't said why they are still there since Sept 05

You can travel until the final day of your visa expiration, you will be stamp 6months stay or according to the VO willingness to allow you to stay in the US. It's always advisable to travel earlier though to avoid unnecessary questioning.

I think you can mention it when you are asked a question like; WHY ARE YOU GOING TO THE US? You can simply say: I'm going to the US to continue my study on xy course because I'm already a student and I got 3.--- in my last result from the department/school.

I think there are many questions you can slot that into, just be creative.
