Do you know if you will pass the Interview and get an F1 Visa to Study Abroad in the USA? Do you know if you will get a 214(b) ReTere jection and have to return for another Interview?
I can tell you that the 2nd interview is much more difficult. Many services say “no problem” you can take the F1 Interview again. This is true however you MUST have Additional Reasons to get an F1 Visa.
Students applying for a visa to study at a school in the USA fail the Interview at the Embassy for several reasons. Some fail because they are unqualified.
Others, MANY others fail because they are not prepared. Useful LInks for official USA Government websites can be found on the bottom of this page. Good Luck!

Look at what the official USA Government says:
Section 214(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act
Once an officer has determined that an applicant does not qualify for a visa,
the applicant should not re-apply unless:
there are significant changes in the applicant’s circumstances
or there is information which was not presented during the first interview.
Applicants wanting to reapply need to schedule a new appointment and pay the fee again. Sometimes you must file a new DS-160 depending on your Embassy or Consulate Office.
Applicants providing the same information a second time after a previous refusal will be highly unlikely to succeed in obtaining a visa during the second interview.
No New Information or Documents = Fail
Students should allow for 2-4 days for the F1 Visa Evaluation and “Mock Interview”. This will allow time for the students to answer the surveys and questionnaires and meet online to have a “Mock Interview”.
Some students in a hurry have finished the Evaluation in less than a day. These students have a problem if they do not pass the mock interview because that leaves little time to prepare better and improve.
The Interview is very important in your life. How can you prepare for this big event?
- Know about your reasons to study.
- Understand your finances.
- Why will you return home?
- All about your school and living conditions.
- What you will study.
- Why you will return home.
Since this is your first F1 Visa Interview,
you have probably read a lot online.
Still, you are not sure what to expect.
I do not think everything you hear is correct. I hear the craziest things from students. Lying about family in the USA. They already know. Students with fake financial papers, or a story about someone who will pay or guarantee to pay. Why would someone outside of your immediate family pay? Bank accounts that all of a sudden have a lot of money. Where did the money come from? Students who studied art all of a sudden entering a STEM program for engineering. Students getting accepted to study ESL for 1` year telling the Visa Officer they will study their Masters. Whatever you say during your interview, it has to make sense.
