I got my F1 visa stamped for Spring-2018. I couldn’t join the college neither I returned I20, but recently I have informed HOD of the department that I couldn’t join. I have H4 visa and have stayed in states for more than 1 year on it.
I am applying again for Fall-2018. I want to join in a different college for Fall-2018 at a different university and as my wife who has a H1B approved and working in that city, we want to stay together. I have more than 8 years of work experience and GRE marks as 303.
i) Do I need to appear for F1 visa interview and pay SEVIS fees again for the new college ?
ii) Suppose, if I join the existing university again. Do I need to appear for visa interview again and pay the SEVIS fees as well.
iii) How can I check that my SEVIS is terminated or not ?
