  • H4 to F1 Visa stamping in canada before school start date

    Hi, My Change of Status (COS) has been approved from H4 to F1. I'm planning to do stamping in Canada. I have few questions regarding this. Please help with answers and sharing your experience.
    1. Did anyone faced f1 rejections in Canada?
    2. How to pay visa interview fees in Canada?
    3. Which consulate is the good option?
    4. If visa is approved, when can I get my passport back?
    5. How long will it take to get Canadian Visitors visa?
    6. What are the chances of getting visa with COS documents?

        1) you will find many rejection cases... But good thing is that you can always come on h4.. Many manu people get visa approved
        2) you can Google this... Should not be a big deal...
        3) the one near your would be best...
        4) the whole process will take roughly 1 week... 2 days after your interview is what I remember...
        5) its online now and if you have all the docs... 30 to 45 days... Depends
        6) not sure what do you mean... You have an approved f1 and your i20 will be your status...

        Good luck let me know if you need more information....
