in this article. You will learn 5 important tips you have to keep in mind when going for a USA F1 visa interview.
These tips will help you in both booking your interview slot as well as preparing for the interview.
Below are the 5 most important tips to keep in mind.
1. Availability of visa slots:
Those that are trying to get a visa appointment must have noticed that getting that coveted appointment has become quite a task. And the number of appointments is limited. Unfortunately, this looks like it is going to till January 2022.
For the fall intake, you must have noticed that there was a period of time where bulk slots were being released, and every day thousands of appointments were being released by the embassy. This is unlikely that something like that will happen in the next two months. It’s not that the embassies are shutting, but they will still function in a limited capacity, so the number of appointments for F1 visa will continue to be limited, especially if this is not your first attempt, also especially if you are going for your second or your third attempt.
What this means is that you need to be really proactive in booking your visa slots. You need to be really patient and use some special tips and hacks.
since getting an appointment is becoming difficult, you need to be well prepared for the visa interview.
2. WHY SPRING INTAKE AND NOT FALL INTAKE:
This is especially going to be valid for those of you who have completed your education either in 2021 or 2022. This is because, in that case, there would be a gap of a few months. The visa officer would be interested in knowing why you didn’t immediately start your education for the fall session but waited for the spring session.
It is better to have an answer explanation for this ready and this could be either that, you know getting a visa appointment was difficult or maybe during this gap you were pursuing an online course or some internship which you wanted to complete before you go for your spring intake.
What you need to remember here is that, if you have a gap of a few months, and you didn’t go for the fall intake, but waited for the spring intake, make sure that you structure the gap properly, and show relevant things which add value to the program that you are going for.

Let us say that you did have the admission for the fall intake, but-you deferred it to spring intake, then-in-the-interview. You could be asked why you deferred it to spring intake if the deferral was because your visa was refused during the fall intake, then you could be asked what was the reason for refusal and if any change has been made in your profile since your-last-interview.
But, if the deferral was for different reasons, it could be that maybe you were not able to get a visa appointment, or maybe you had some personal issues or professional issues which you had to take care of, then the same could be asked to you and its better to have an answer ready for the reason why you deferred your intake from fall to spring.
