Ek@l and timer,

I feel bad for both of you guys, one thing I would like to highlight is "honesty". I am clear on Ek@l's situation but for timer, when you are reapplying for a US visa whichever category, make sure that you check off "yes" under the section where it asks you"have you ever applied for a US visa before". So, whether you got rejected or not, pls, indicate "yes" and write as to why the visa got rejected.

Regarding Ek@l's relatives nagging him all the time, is understandable but I know it can get really frustrating. I did not realize that they would toughen so much on the F2 visa. I have seen so many spouses granted F2 recently even from community colleges. If you are planning to do your Masters degree, you will have a new I-20 for may be a period of 2 -3 extra years. Why dont you give it a try and see if your wife can get F2 with this new I-20?. Your spouse's visa has already been rejected x2. You can try her in F1 but it is not a guarantee, and are you both able to handle the pressure of being and Intl' student in this country? It is upto you.

Best Regards.

your spouse will get in F1 if she get I20 from a reputed college even if you have to pay for full tuition first sem. . If her educational background is good and her GMAT or GRE or toefl is really good, I think they will not reject.

Finally, i will get new I20 this week.. 

I'm thinking to let m y spouse apply F1 instead of F2.  But i'm littlebit worried coz we both will b on F1 and US embassy will know it for sure.I've decided to go back to the university instead of community college just because embassy could reject the visa whether if is F1 or F2 if they think that i'm just maintaining my status here.  I really don't  know whehter this decision is good or not but hope this will workout well though financially it is a bad decision coz, I really don't need two degree and I don't want either.

To be honest, I really want to go back home. But.............its not easy. I just can't handle the situation if i return with a piece of paper.  I will try one more time.  Lets see.

Now, if anybody have an idea, I would like to request you guys to share.

Pls suggest me, which application sounds good at this point for my spouse, F1 or F2.

Appreciate your reply with reasonable comment.

Thanks

ek@l...............simply alone

Three basic rules for Non immigrant Visas:
  1. Non immigrant Intention or temporary stay - You can document this through presenting job evidences in Nepal. Include pay stubs, appointment letters and most importantly leave approval letter for the period you have mentioned on the form DS-156/157. In addition, present evidences that your stay will be temporary "outside" Nepal viz You are definite to come back. Evidences of such may be but not limited to visa stamps of other countries in the past, "genuine" reason of temporary stay such as last few months of spouse's education in the US, graduation ceremony, summer break tour, winter break vacation etc. Requesting visa for short period such as a month to 3 months may be beneficial to demonstrate your intention.
  2. Strong Social and economic Ties with Home country - Evidences may include property ownership documents such as land ownership certificate, house-land tax documents, income tax document, company ownership/shareholding documents etc. A spouse or child who remains back in Nepal while you will be away for a short period in the US is a primary factor too. Documents evidencing your social strata and involvement such as certificates, awards, membership of leading organizations etc may look bleak but are very strong in terms of proving your stance. If you own a company or your family has a traditional business, include business registration, tax registration and share holding pattern. Yes, even though you have your own company, you have to include a Board Resolution approving your leave of absence and if any financial assistance is being offered. If you have strong recommendation letters from nationally known figures who mention that they know your personally and that they firmly believe that you shall return back, proves to be more supportive.
  3. Financial Ability: Documents such as pay stubs of you and/or your spouse, Affidavit of financial support (Form I-134) from the spouse in the US, evaluation of land-building, bank statement along with last 3 to 6 months of regular transaction in your name or any of your family members (supported by a notarized affidavit of support for sponsorship - see figure), etc. The more the better.
Once a visa is issued, ensure that you return or extend/change your non immigrant status. Being out of status and overstaying for less than 180 days bars from reentering the US for 3 years while overstaying more than 180 days may bar you for 10 years.

Disclose everything honestly on the forms. Discrepancy on the visa form data and fake documentation 'flags' you for sure.

Sorry, I am not here to say which job is what, it is your eye and I don't have any problem to your friend too. He might want better than what he is doing but for me, a guy from Nepal and now supporting to fed gov is pretigious, it doesn't mean that is best. Any way, my friend, that is why we are nepali, because you tried to deviate the issue, no one ever ask me what jobs you are doing, but they concentrate the issue, I wish no one has to face this difficulties and specially mydeals, please feel the situation.

Thanks mydeals, probably he might be genious and not happy where he was working but for me, I am dealing lot of cases and every day lot of people call to finish cases, someone who might be working our cases in H1, OPT or greencard, so I feel happy, the word might be incorrect "prestigious" but in some point of life I was also dreaming to come usa and work illigally and earn money but the situation has changed and I am working far better than I was hoping, just remind you, I am trying to go Phd soon.

Thanks any way.
