Apply for Visa Interview

Schedule a visa appointment for your United States student visa at your local U.S. Embassy/Consulate closest to your home residence. If you have an I-20, you should apply for an F-1 visa. If you have a DS-2019, you should apply for a J-1 visa.


During your visa interview:

Take all the documents that you might need to your interview.

  • Your passport
  • Your SEVIS I-20 (or DS-2019) and Admission Letter from Kansas State University
  • DS-160 Visa Application Form with barcode
  • Receipt of SEVIS (I-901) fee payment
  • Evidence of academic preparation (school exam scores, test scores, transcripts)
  • Bank statements showing that you have enough money to pay your expenses
  • Other documents that can show that you are NOT planning to stay permanently in the United States. Student visas are non-immigrant visas, so it is important to show that you have a temporary intention in the U.S. Consider if you have any documents showing connections in your home country and that you intend to return. This kind of evidence could include:
    • contracts
    • degree certificates
    • documents showing ownership of property
    • letters of reference (from an employer, for example)

Be prepared to present your information quickly. In a busy embassy, the visa officer may have only a few minutes for each interview. Present your most important documents first and have the other things ready to show if you are given enough time. Remember the visa officer is looking to see if you have temporary or permanent intent in the United States when asking you questions.

After your visa interview:

If you receive a visa denial, you should receive the denial reason in writing. The most common reason for visa denial is failure to demonstrate permanent ties to your home country. Let us know at International Admissions if your visa is denied or delayed in processing so that you cannot arrive to begin your program.

When your visa is approved, celebrate, and get ready to join us at Kansas State!
