SEVIS expiration

Hi! I paid SEVIS fee on 29th Sept, 2021. I appeared in a F1 visa interview on 30th Aug, 2022 with an I-20 for this fall session. The counselor assigned 221g to my case. I’m hopeful that I’ll get F1 visa in next few weeks and I can join program from Spring 2023. Do I have to pay SEVIS fee again as it expires in one year? What will be other issues I have to take care of? Thanks!

You dont need to pay SEVIS fee again as you appeared for visa interview with in 12 months of paying the fees.

I see. Thanks for replying this question.
