Your visa is inside your passport, and it only needs to be valid for ENTRY into the United States. If your visa is expired and you plan to travel, you MUST renew your visa at the US Consulate in your home country. To assist you in renewing your visa with F-1 status, please complete the information below. The OIS will provide you with a letter to bring with you for the visa interview. You will receive email notification when your letter is completed and available for pickup.
