Dear Friends, I had been to US 2014 Fall to pursue MBA in HULT International Business School, San Francisco. I was there for one module and then I got my sevis transfer to another university but, due to some unfortunate circumstances I couldn’t continue there I had to come to India. I guess my sevis would have been terminated and I am out of status now. My F1 visa is valid till 21-Aug-2019. To go back to US next time do I have to re-apply for new F1 visa since my sevis record has been terminated or can I use my existing student visa since it’s valid till 2019 by just getting new i20 from an university or do I have to apply for F1 status reinstatement? Can you please provide me your inputs?
Your visa stamp in passport is valid for travel till 2019 and a new visa application is not needed at present time. All you need is an updated SEVIS record and the new I-20 issued by the host school.
