The author has discussed F-1 student visa process for studies in US. Though there are many things common in the visa process in general, but procedure may vary in other countries. Student visa procedure of US is very systematic. Most of the successful visa interview are concluded within minutes. Mostly it depends on the level of preparation and genuineness of the case. The visa official has to primarily decide the case on the basis of his/her assessment as to whether the applicant student is a potential immigrant or not despite knowing that most of students will not return back to India after completing studies. Rich resources are made available on the website of the US embassy which should be studied thoroughly. In my opinion, there are much more chances of success in case the students are submitting their applications themselves after thorough study of all aspects involved instead of depending on any consultant.
