Congrats dude...

I am in....

Did you receive your i 20. How did u manage to work on your visa processing so early...I think V Tech has not send any documents till now for visa processing...


I got my I-20 mailed to me by express delivery service and received it in 4 working days..

Following information would be useful for the visa application procedure:

** DO NOT EVER EVER opt for regular delivery for I-20. It takes more than a month to come. Spend $50 and get express delivery.

** Pay visa application fee. Can be paid even before you get your I-20 (@ HDFC bank, http://www.vfs-usa.co.in/USIndia/pdf/HDFC%20Locationsfeescenter.pdf).

** Fill your DS-160 diligently and stick to facts. Can be filled only after you receive your SEVIS number from University. You can ask this number from immigration officer before (s)he dispatches your I-20. Mine was mailed to me. (https://ceac.state.gov/genniv/)

** Pay the SEVIS fee atleast two days in advance to your scheduled interview. I paid it one week in advance. ($200 online @ https://www.fmjfee.com/i901fee/ )

** Use numbers/codes generated in submitting above fees and forms to get the visa appointment. Remember, the dates fluctuate considerably; if you need a particular date, just keep on checking and rechecking VFS site. I heard they usually open dates during 10-11 am everyday. I did it at 0900 hrs approximately. https://www.vfs-usa.co.in/ApplnForms/EarliestDate.aspx
(Change of visa interview location is not entertained).

Disclaimer: Above info is based on my experiences and not necessarily a foolproof method of getting VISA done. :splat:
