F1 visa checklist + interview

<p>Can someone tell me what i need to bring to my student visa interview?</p>

<p>Also, how can i prove that i won't stay in the US after i graduate?</p>

<p>THanks for replying!</p>

<p>Probably best to ask this in the international student thread instead, but for me:
I brought all the necessary items they required...you can probably get a list from your embassy website. For me it was I-20, passport, photograph, statement from my parents stating they will pay for my studies and the embassy receipt/cashier's order and stuff. Basically just whatever the embassy asked me to bring.</p>

<p>For statement of finances I brought my mum's bank book and a letter from the bank stating the amount of $$ she has in her account which was about 200k. You can always bring more...housing deed, tax invoice or anything. </p>

<p>But honestly, don't sweat it. Seriously. The interview lasted barely 3 minutes for me. All he asked was where I was studying, what I planned to major in, what was my high school and how I planned to finance my studies. Then he didn't even look at the savings book, he just took a look at the letter and told me I've been approved. Usually student visas are pretty hassle-free and straightforward cause they won't assume that you have the intention of forcibly staying in the US. The ones who were getting grilled when I was waiting for my turn were those applying for work visas.... I have a sister who ended up staying in the US after she graduated from college there and they didn't even grill me or ask me on that at all.</p>

<p>^ I second what the previous poster said. Don't sweat it. It was really easy in the end.</p>

<p>Don't know why people make such a fuss about the visa interview.</p>
