  1. Hello, DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE. I am a Computer Programmer Analyst working in St Louis, MO on STEM OPT. On 26th August 2018, I was charged with DUI and overspeeding. My BAC level was 0.107. PA dismissed my case in November 2018 under a deferred prosecution agreement(SATOP, VIP, and Community Service) PA has given me 3 months to complete everything but as I needed to travel for my marriage, I completed all the conditions before I leave the country. My criminal attorney did warn me about prudential visa revocation. I have collected all the dismissal documents from the court and proof of completion of community services before I go. While coming back on 9th January 2019, I was not allowed to board the flight as my visa got revoked. I immediately booked a visa date. Below is my timeline for the entire process: 1. 17th January 2019: Went to Visa Interview on and was given a yellow 221g form for medical evaluation. VO didn't ask for a single court document. He just asked about my work and location where DUI happened. The interview lasted for a minute. 2. 18th January 2019: Completed panel of physician at Rele clinic Mumbai. They submitted the report on the same day. 3. 29th January 2019: Visa status remained "Admin Processing" and updated date changed and received a phone call and email from Kolkata consulate to submit the passport. I submitted the passport on the next day. 4. 30th January 2019: Visa status remained "Admin Processing" and updated date changed to 30th Jan. 5. 5th February 2019: Visa status changed to "Issued". 6. 8th February 2019: Received passport with the new stamp. 7. 10th February 2019: Flew back to USA. At POE, I was put in the secondary screening and the officer asked me for court docs. He also asked me about the incident, warned me not to repeat it and let me in.
  2. Hello, I am a Computer Programmer Analyst working in St Louis, MO on STEM OPT. On 26th August 2018, I was charged with DUI and overspeeding. My BAC level was 0.107. As I had a clean record in my driving history and consequences of DUI on my student status, PA has decided to dismiss my case in November 2018 under deferred prosecution agreement. Terms were: 1. 1 SATOP class 2. 1 VIP 3. 60 hours of community service 4. $153 for DUI and $400 for overspeeding PA has given me 3 months to complete everything but as I needed to travel for my marriage in December 2018, I completed everything in 20 days. My criminal attorney told me that I should not be in trouble for the next 3 years and can leave the country for my marriage. He did warn me about prudential visa revocation. I have collected all the dismissal documents from the court and proof of completion of community services. My license hearing is still pending but my criminal lawyer told me that it has nothing to do with leaving the country. While coming back on 9th January 2019, I was not allowed to board the flight as my visa got revoked. I immediately booked a visa date at Kolkata Consulate. VO just asked me 2 questions as When did it happen and where do I work. He didn't ask any documents and handed over me 221g yellow form. I went immediately to the Mumbai at Rele clinic on next day and did all the panel of physician tests. My reports are with the Kolkata embassy now. I have following questions: 1. Does anybody have any experience with Kolkata consulate how much time they usually take to process the case? My employer is asking me for the timeframe. 2. Did I make any mistake by not showing dismissal documents by myself? Thank You.
  3. Hello, I am on my F1 visa working as a Software Engineer and charged with the DUI a month before in St Louis, MO. My BAC level was 0.107. I am working with a good criminal lawyer to settle things. I am getting married on Dec 30th and need to travel to India. I read about the prudential revocation of F1 visa. Till date, I haven't received anything from the consulate. I am a little bit scared to travel outside the country but it is inevitable for me. 1. How would I confirm if my visa is revoked or not? 2. If revoked, what documents I should carry with me? 3. I need to tell my employer how many days I need to be in India. What is the maximum time to get the new visa in Mumbai consulate? Thank You.
