What to Bring With You to the Visa Interview

Be sure to bring the following with you to the visa appointment:

  • Passport
  • Required photo(s)
  • Visa fee or proof of visa fee payment
  • Federal SEVIS I-901 Fee payment receipt
  • U.S. non-immigrant visa application forms (unless you will be completing it at the consulate or embassy)
  • Manhattan College admission letter
  • Manhattan College SEVIS I-20 or SEVIS DS-2019
  • Test scores and academic records
  • Proof of English proficiency
  • Proof of financial support
  • Evidence of ties to your home country
  • Any other documents required by the embassy or consulate

Remember that if you plan to attend Manhattan, you must present the visa officer with an I-20 or DS-2019 issued by Manhattan College. You cannot apply for a U.S. visa using anther school's I-20 or DS-2019, and then try to attend Manhattan as that is considered to be a fraudulent entry by the U.S. Immigration authorities.
