F1 Visa Interview Questions and
Problems Answering

1. Why did you choose this college? 
Did you choose?
What do you know about colleges?
The Visa Officer knows everything.

2.What will you do after you graduate?
Working in your own country probably will pay less, much less.
Taking care of your family ~ most don't need, they need money.

3. Where will you live? 
Students who live with family may be more likely to work.

4. Why don't you study in your country? 
 It cost much less.  Why is the USA better? (at your school)
Don't give the same answer about USA Quality!

5. What is your mothers/fathers job?
Be Proud.  Say They are successful and good.
Jobs must match savings and declared resources.
The Visa Officer knows wages and jobs abroad.

6. How much does it cost to study? Cost can be as high as $150,000 to get a degree.  A family can buy real estate and provide lifetime income for their child for that money in their home country.

7. What job will you you do after graduating?   I often have students who study accounting.  Accounting in the USA is not the same as other countries. Why sill this help you at home?

They are very straightforward questions,

Problems and Weakness in Answers

It is not simple because either there is not a clear understanding of what the USA Government wants to know about an F1 Visa Student, or the student is hiding something or not being 100% honest. 

Another possibility is students (many) who do not understand but trust a service to tell them what to do.  Some services do not know.  

When there is a weakness it is normal to create logic to support that part of your application during the interview to hide your weakness or not say what you really want to do.

The problem is that when answering students get nervous and show signs of nervousness or lying which the Visa Officer is very capable of identifying. 

They may think that you are nice but something is wrong.  Remember the law says that you want to stay in the USA so anything that is different will cause them to fail you. 

Everyone can make their best answers for these questions.  The Visa officers have heard it all.

Learn How To Overcome This Problem

What the Visa Officer and Embassy needs:

  • Clear and easy to understand answers.
  • Honest, personal and believable

The Visa Officer (VO) wants to hear answers that are easy to understand and believable.

The VO wants your answers, the truth, not memorized answers.

Finances, Strong Ties, and Choice of Schools are the most difficult for most difficult.

Some families create fake contracts to show a lot of income.  Unfortunately the Visa Officers know how much is normal to earn.  

What the Visa Officer Knows:

  • Everything
    • Schools
    • Jobs
    • Majors
    • Finances

They also know the culture of the country.  On country I work with it is typical for people to have low amounts in savings accounts but own land.  Houses, land, and more.  I know families that borrow a lot of money the week before the interview. 

The Visa Officer sees that this is a new deposit and an unusually high amount of money for that country.  Then they see the people do not own land and think something is not right.

Strong Ties F1 Visa Answers

  • One of the hardest topics.

You or your family will spend maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars to study abroad. 

Would they do this so you can come back and help people? 

Ask yourself: 

How many people that don't have a lot of money spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to help others?

How many rich people spend a lot of money to help people?

How many people want to give away money that could help their family to others, or spend time where they can earn big money working for less?

Never forget that wages in the USA can be much higher than in your home country for the same work.  Why would anyone work for $10,000 a year when they can work for $150,000 a year and send money home?

Finances and F1 Visa Answers

Finances:  Many students are getting help from family or borrowing money, or another way to raise funds. 

Typically in the USA, parents pay for school.  Around the world it is common for other family members to help, especially if they are already in the USA.

The Visa Officer knows that having family already in the USA creates a situation where you may want to stay forever, or you have the opportunity to work while studying in jobs not sanctioned by the school.

Choice of Schools F1 Answers

Choice of Schools:  Most students do not know the difference between schools but there is a huge difference.  Most do not understand about the quality of the I-20 however the Vis Officer can infer many things by looking at this simple form. 

They know all about schools.  Open Enrollment, Percentage of Foreign Students, Staff to Student Ratios, Amount of students that are successful after graduating, how many students are caught working illegally, funny costs that take advantage of International Students, Schools mostly serviced by commissioned services....and the list goes on.  Are you surprised?

Take the course to know how to answer school questions.

Is your dream to study in the USA? 

  • Do you want to study there or remain in the USA? 

Learn the reasons students practice trying to convince the Embassy and usually it is not successful.

Making up stories and not answering directly will cause you to fail.


What the Government of the USA is Interested in Knowing about You.

The government tries to determine if students want to immigrate and stay in the USA

or want to study temporarily and go home.

In some ways this is a "game" because many F1 students intend to stay and work in the USA.   It is not a game though and must be approached very seriously and methodically.   

Knowing what to say and exactly how to say it will help your chances of getting a visa. 

  • You must prove you are a real student and going to study.
  • You must have good reasons to go home.
  • You should not intend to work in unauthorized jobs.
  • You must have the finances to pay for school.
  • You will return to your home country.

Are F1 Visas Difficult to Get or Easier to Get?

Our students who fit the qualifications still find it easy.

This can depend on your country of origin and your application.

stem subjects

Are engineering and math the only subjects that are assured of getting visas?

Surprisingly these STEM subjects are decreasing while arts, business, others are getting visas that in the past were more difficult. This is great news!

STEM students achieve measurable results on standardized tests.  Other fields are more difficult to quantify although achievements can be identified, just more subjective.  I am glad to see more different majors being pursued.  In many ways the approval of STEM students was confusing.  The mandate was to have students return whereas the students accepted are the most desired by American companies. 

!00% for sure, STEM students are very successful at getting F1 Visas,  Schools seek out STEM students. 

More STEM students from India are going to China.  Other countries such as UK, Finland, Ireland, and Canada are recruiting more students.  They are less money and appear more stable places for International Students. 

USA may still be the best because of opportunities and quality.  Find out more here.


f1 214b rejection

Is there hope after being rejected?

Depends on where you are.

Depends on why you failed.

If you have gone to your interview and do not get a visa they give you a sheet of paper called a 214(b) rejection.  This means they thought you wanted to immigrate (stay in the USA) and not return to your home country.  What most students do not realize is that every applicant is considered an immigrant.  You must prove to the Visa Officer (VO) that you are not an immigrant. 

There are other reasons like your choice of school, finances, your study history...

How you look, answer, your English Skills or Lack of English, if you appear like you would be a success in USA....

USA Law = All applicants are considered to be potential immigrants.

What should you do after being rejected?

There are many reasons to fail the F1 Visa Interview.  Some are due to your specific application. Others may be how you act during your short (2-4 minute) interview.  Usually your application and I-20 from the school may have flaws or are of low quality.
