Is F1 student visa likely to become stringent with new immigration policies ?

Visa - the travel permit to your dream destination !!
The best you can do for your visa interview is to go in with your best preparation. Irrespective of how immigration policies might change, here is some advice from iGradGlobal on visa interviews.
Key factors in getting the visa:
  • Proper financial documents.
  • Admit in reputed/related Universities.
  • Good academics and competitive test scores.
Key factors in getting denied a visa:
  • Most common reasons for denial and workarounds thereof.
  • Missing documents
  • Sound like potential immigrant
How to prepare for the interview - some generic questions listed here
  • Why MS?
  • Why this univ?
  • Why are you leaving your job?
  • What after MS?
  • Who is sponsoring you?
  • What does your sponsor do?
Some  general advice:
  • Be on time.
  • Don't carry too many/ unecessary docs (refer to the website for the required document), plastic bags, mobile etc.
  • Dress neatly.
  • Be audible and clear  to the officer,  do not lie / or hide information.
  • Read up some past student experiences.

Remember the interview is all about how confident you sound , how convincingly you speak and how well you articulate your points. Don't unnecessarily panic and respond to questions calmly.
